Matcha, which is a high concentrated green tea powder is becoming all the craze now. Anytime I go to Starbuck (which isn't a lot because its so damn expensive) I get a large ice water with 3 scoops of matcha and a splash of lemonade, which means on top of being super healthy its super low in calories. WIN!
So start buying matcha because it really is the healthiest, best drink out there, and here is why!
Matcha has a ton of caffeine !
Don't let the idea of green tea fool you, because the matcha powder creates a drink that patches a punch. Because the powder also includes the tea leaves that means the caffeine in 1 cup of Match is equal to around 10 cups of green tea, or a cup of coffee.
However, unlike coffee that will leave you jittery, matcha gives you a calm alertness that is perfect for work and school.
Matcha has a ton of antioxidants!
The powder has 137 times more antioxidants then the loose leaf counterpart which means more nutrients to fight off infections and diseases. To put it into perspective matcha has twenty times more antioxidants than pomegranates or blueberries which are known super foods.
Just call matcha powder the super charged version of green tea!
One cup of matcha green tea has the same health benefits as 10 whole cups of tea!! Which is actually amazing. So take the health benefits of green tea and then times it by 10!
Also it is super green which just makes you feel healthy drinking it.
