Matcha really is the power house of the beverage world. It is a stone ground powdered green tea from Japan? It has amazing cancer fighting properties and is said to be beneficial in aiding fat loss. Packed full of antioxidants, it boosts immunity and increases metabolism.
It calms your mind and relaxes your body and sharpens our concentration. It is also said to prevent disease and lower cholesterol and blood sugar and for me, the most important factor, it has anti ageing properties – another reason to keep drinking miracle matcha.
Just one serving of the good stuff has the same nutritional value of 10 cups of regular green tea. When drinking this powerful green stuff, you are ingesting the whole leaf which will give you 100% of the benefits above.
As well as drinking matcha, it can be used in baking and is often seen in matcha brownies, matcha ice creams, matcha chocolate bars and matcha cookies. My current favourite way to drink it is as a matcha latte using almond milk – delicious.
It has an acquired taste, but persevere with it and you will soon be reaping the benefits and fall in love with the taste.
