A few weeks ago when I was visiting my mama, and we were shopping for all sorts of superfoods, I picked up matcha on a whim. I've had matcha before, as well as matcha lattes (granted they were everywhere when I lived in NYC), but never bought matcha powder for home.
Then, as I started making it, I just couldn't stay away. I became obsessed instantly. I loved the energy, the taste, and I didn't even want coffee anymore. (I still love coffee, but don't want it at all when I have matcha)
What is matcha? Matcha is a traditional Japanese drink made of specially grown green tea leaves stone-ground into powder.
Of course, I've heard of all the matcha benefits, and that was a very big and pleasant bonus. Matcha is said to:
- Be extremely high in antioxidants
- Helps you find your calm
- Boosts memory and concentration
- Increase energy and endurance
- Help burn calories
- Detoxify the body
- Strengthen the immune system
Right now I'm really loving matcha from Matchaeologist. I found this company accidentally, in fact they found me on social media, and I decided to give it a try. *I am in no way associated with Matchaeologist, and this is solely my opinion.
I want to know if you love matcha, and how you use it. Share your ideas with me!
