The Matcha craze is real. Have you fallen yet? There are many known benefits, so if you haven’t given it a try, you might as well.
First off, you know it must be healthy since it’s sooo green, and we all know that green = healthy. Now you don’t have to eat your greens, you can drink your greens.
Still don’t understand what it is? It is a fine ground powder of green tea leaves that have been shade grown. Keeping these leaves out of sunlight slows down their growth resulting in an increase of chlorophyll development, which creates the production of amino acids.
The flavor is super distinct and something to get used to. However, once you fall for it, you’ll never look back. There are many new interesting Matcha-flavored foods and drinks to try like matcha green tea, beers, or even a delicious milkshake. Have you tried anything crazy with it in it?
Benefits of Matcha:
Improves mental focus
Provides an energy boost with no crash
Filled with antioxidants
Still not convinced? Matcha tea is the nutritional equivalent of 10 cups of good ole fashioned green tea.
Have you tried it in powder form? Do you like it already, and I’m just preaching to the choir?
