Matcha green tea is my new favorite drink and I think I am starting to like it better than coffee! If you have never tried matcha green tea you need to go buy it now! I order mine from amazon Kirkland Ito En Matcha Blend Japanese Green Tea-100 ct 1.5g tea bags <– the exact brand I order. Matcha really brings out my inner Kourtney Kardashian lol. But seriously if you are looking for something to replace coffee or just something to sip on, I highly recommend trying it.
Matcha contains nutrients from an entire leaf, meaning it has a greater amount of caffeine and antioxidants that are typically found in green tea. Antioxidants are chemical components that prevent aging and chronic diseases. They are basically the bodies defense against agents, protecting you from infections and disease. One cup of matcha tea has as many antioxidants as 10 cups of brewed green tea. Green tea is also known to help promote weight loss. Some studies show that the green tea extract helps to increase metabolism and fat burning.
I love to match green tea because you get the benefits both from matcha and from the green tea. I also like to add a little bit of honey and almond milk to mine! Try it out and let me know what you think, there will be a post soon all about the benefits 😉
