Tired of super sweet Sport Gels that create a sticky mess? Or Energy Chews where you need to eat five chews for just one serving?
Did You Know
High quality matcha delivers healthy sustained energy and increases mental focus. Great for improving sport performance, but try whisking up a matcha mid-race or when you’re hanging off a mountain!
So how do you get matcha’s health benefits into a tasty convenient format, make it super effective, and get all that into a single serving?
Matcha KiK Performance Chews!
We levelled up matcha’s natural performance effects by adding green tea caffeine and d-Ribose, a sugar that occurs naturally during metabolism and is essential for cellular energy but gets depleted during exercise. So we combined the ingredients into a zesty lemon-flavored soft chew you can take anywhere anytime.
For a complete list of ingredients, please see “Just the Facts” below.
Won’t Race Without My KiKs!
“I had 2 KiKs one night of my 200 mile run, and 3 the next, they didn’t leave a taste in my mouth and were super tasty. Appealed to me after 48 hours of running so that’s fantastic!”
Sarah J. Cuff, Ultra Runner / Sports Nutritionist

Matt G., Cyclist / Triathlete / Business Owner
My name is Calli O’Brien and I’m the CEO and Co-founder of My Matcha Life Products Inc.® I’ve been a competitive multi-sport athlete since I was seven (7) years old.
Over the years I’ve received various awards and recognition. Recently, my team and I were honored as inductees into the B.C. Football Hall of Fame 2019. The only female athletes ever inducted into a professional football Hall of Fame!
All athletes are aware of the importance of sustained energy to play at the top of our game, but sometimes we forget it’s the mental edge that makes the ultimate difference. It separates winning from losing, grabbing the podium from not placing, and making birdies instead of bogies.
An athlete needs both sustained energy and sustained mental focus.
In the past 15 years I’ve become a leading authority in the North American Matcha space, working with the world’s best matcha tea growers, gathering tons of customer data, and even lecturing at the prestigious Smithsonian Institute.
I learned that the benefits of high quality matcha are unique and vastly different from those in an average matcha tea powder. And that matcha’s nutrients get boosted when combined with specific ingredients, creating an effective synergy perfect for sport performance.
Personally I love a good matcha, and having one during my games improves my mental and physical performance. But whisking or shaking it up is inconvenient and the energy lift can be subtle.
I wanted a product that enhanced matcha’s unique benefits of energy and focus, that anyone could use anywhere, anytime: mid-race, cycling, hanging off a mountain-side, wherever.
The Problem …
The problem was how to get matcha powder into a convenient easy-to-use format, make it tasty without adding tons of sugar, boost its natural performance effects, and then get it all into a single serving.
The Solution …
To find the solution my partner and I brought together North America’s top tea formulator, a U.S. based Life Sciences team, a major natural health products manufacturer, and Japan’s premier matcha tea producer.
After three (3) years of formulating, testing different delivery formats, and seven (7) ‘Final’ variations, Matcha KiK Performance Chews – Lemon Flavor rolled out to the U.S. market with rave reviews in November 2019.
We hope you’ll love them as much as we do.
