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 want to know if you love matcha, and how you use it. Share your ideas with me!
*Edited to add that after being a fan of their matcha for over two years, I became a brand ambassador.
