If you haven't heard about Matcha green tea before then today is your lucky day!

Matcha has become so extremely popular over the last few years with it growing in demand exponentially year on year. There must be a reason for this popularity and the more you look at it the more you can see why so many people now consume Matcha as part of their everyday routine.

One of the biggest reasons for people drinking Matcha is the amazingly high concentration of super healthy antioxidants - it has 137 x more antioxidants than regular green teas and is even healthier than foods such as blueberries!

These are just some of the health benefits of drinking Matcha:

  • Extremely high in antioxidants - which are thought to help prevent serious health conditions such as heart disease and cancer
  • Powerful weight loss properties - Like other green teas, Matcha helps to burn calories and aids your digestion
  • High in Chlorophyll which can rid the body of harmful toxins and heavy metals helping to improve overall health
  • Lowers your stress while increasing alertness
  • Rich in catechins - epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which can help to protect your body against free radicals which are linked to conditions such as cancer and heart disease.
  • Increase longevity and live a healthier, happier life with abundant energy and vitality

So what exactly is Matcha?

Matcha is the powdered form of green tea leaves, only the best green tea leaves are selected which are then shielded from the sun several weeks before the harvest. The leaves are then ground using a traditional stone mill to a fine powder - this locks in all of the powerful health benefits.

How to drink Matcha?

There are two best ways to make Matcha:

1. To easily make matcha green tea, add 1/2 - 1 tsp to a small amount of hot water (80°C) using a spoon to make a smooth paste, then add more water to make a cup and add sweetener if desired.

For the more traditional method

Use a traditional bamboo whisk, put 1/2 - 1 teaspoon in a large cup or a drinking bowl and add a small amount of 80°C hot water. Whisk in a quick, light zig-zag motion until a layer of green froth appears on the surface. Add more water if desired.
