Matcha is one of Japan’s quintessential flavors. Its smooth, earthy taste and the endless list of nutrients it provides are testament to why so many Japanese people swear by a warm cup of it everyday.
For starters, matcha is a far superior grade of tea from your run-of-the-mill loose-leaf boxed teas. Even just from its touch and smell, it's a much more luxurious experience from your first sip to your last. Instead of steeping and removing the tea leaves, the leaves are finely ground up into a concentrated powder, which is then blended into hot water. It’s vivid green color boasts of benefits that outclass other green teas, as it...
- calms your mind but also boosts energy levels
- enhances metabolism, encouraging fat burn
- lowers cholesterol & blood sugar
- removes toxins such traces of metals & chemicals found in the body
- packs loads of antioxidants, which prevents disease and free radicals
It's no wonder matcha is so celebrated in Japanese culture, with tea ceremonies that symbolize the grace and tranquility that matcha promises.
Oftentimes, we see matcha in the form of candies and lattes, that are often crammed with sugar. Reintroduce yourself to matcha with a simple cup, that is super easy to prepare for even the most rushed mornings. The best part is that even a lower quality, non-ceremonial grade matcha powder still outweighs the benefits that a regular green tea bag provides!
With this in mind, start your mornings right with a cup of matcha, and taste the benefits for yourself, and remember a little goes a long way!
