Matcha

I am such a huge tea lover! I drink it daily, green tea in the morning/afternoon and more of an herbal infusion in the evening to help relax me before bedtime. Lately I have been on a big Matcha kick. I love it because it is so full of goodness and you only need a tiny bit to get all the wonderful benefits.

Matcha is a premium green tea powder from Japan. The actual tea leaves are ground into a fine powder and used for drinking tea or as an ingredient in food recipes. I like to put it into smoothies or make tea, either way I am getting all the amazing health benefits from it.

Here are some wonderful facts and health benefits you get from Matcha:

-137 more antioxidants than regular brewed tea (you ingest the whole leaf)

-mood enhancer

-natural weightless aid

-ph balancer, detoxifier

-great alternative to coffee

-boosts metabolism

-calms the mind and relaxes the body

-aids in concentration

-lowers cholesterol and blood pressure

-burns calories

-can be used in sauces, pastry, smoothies, lattes and more!

One glass of Matcha is equal to 10 glasses of brewed green tea!
