Super Blends is David Rio's new organic product line. The Matcha latte starts with the finest Japanese matcha and adds in a wealth of super foods – chlorella, wheatgrass, and moringa – for a unique “green” latte that is as refined as it is nutrient rich! SuperBlends Matcha Latte 10.6-ounce standup pouch that yields 55 servings. *Note: This instant matcha mix is technically not chai, as it doesn't contain tea or even the traditional chai spices. It's a Matcha Latte. (To create a Organic Matcha Chai Latte, just add a pinch of this mix to David Rio's Lightly Sweetened Masala Chai Superblend!)

On an annual basis, David Rio is reducing its carbon emissions impact by over 25 tons and has removed over 30 tons of garbage from the waste stream--an integral part of David Rio's mission of becoming a green company.
"It's not really fair to rate this on the same metrics as our chai teas, since this is an entirely different 'animal.' So I will just say this: I love matcha. And basically, this mix is agave sweetened matcha with some additional green antioxidants. It's awesome. Just add a pinch to a traditional chai mix, and bingo; it's matcha chai adjusted to the perfect ratio! Is there any better way to get your greens?"
