This Super food is all the up and coming craze for the culinary and for tea drinkers every where! Love your herbal teas? Coffee addict? Always wanting that afternoon pick-me-up without all the sugar and calories. Matcha is your new best friend!
It’s a cancer fighter, fat burner, detoxifier, and loaded with antioxidants. I cup of Matcha is equal to 10 cups of green tea. It’s high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids. It could have the ability to induce a calm, clear, and focused state of mind. It also helps eliminate chemicals and heavy metals. Unlike a regular cup of green tea where you only drink the brewed water, with Matcha you are ingesting the whole ground leaf.
Add it to your smoothies, parfaits, cupcakes, ice cream, pasta sauces, even make savory dishes to add more nutritional value to your dishes. Shake it, whisk it, stir it, or just drink it as your daily cup of tea!
