Get to know more about this #matchaman:
"Hello! My name is Robbie Snow and I’m a soon-to-be resident of Portland, Oregon!
As the Director of Food Service it will be my responsibility to provide the best possible service to all of our wonderful cafes, ice cream shops, boba shops, and restaurants. I'm most excited about getting to know the people who get to play and experiment with our matcha. Learning about how they are being creative and serving their customers will be energizing. I look forward to giving them a rewarding experience so they can continue to be successful matcha ambassadors.
I love new challenges and learning new skills. Last year, I took up pickling and pasta making. This year, I hope to learn how to lead climb and become a better baker. I also enjoy riding my bike, snowboarding, playing soccer, or any other healthy activity that doesn’t involve going to a gym. I have an amazing family and am excited to extend it by joining the Jade Leaf Matcha Family!"
Robbie's Matcha Love Story
"Luckily, my matcha love story is still unravelling! I surrounded myself with matcha at the start of 2019 and have grown more and more infatuated with it by the day. This continuous love story is a result of simply enjoying matcha’s taste as well as my self-driven education on everything matcha. I strongly feel that when you know something intimately, you wind up appreciating every detail about that thing. Learning about matcha’s rich history, the delicacy of the manufacturing process, the numerous ways to consume and apply it, and its health benefits, has organically created my appreciation and love for this unique product. What’s exciting is that this journey isn’t even close to ending. I know I will continue to learn new things about matcha every day, whether it’s a new recipe or a new application, and my love for matcha will continue to expand!"
