Are you mad for matcha? This specific form of green tea is becoming all the rage with its unique taste and its proven health benefits. Not to mention that matcha-based recipes often look aesthetically pleasing! When drinking the high-quality tea – that was turned into powder, you are actually ingesting entire tea leaves. That’s a way more potent source of nutrients than your usual green tea! It is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. The antioxidants found in matcha protect against heart disease and cancer, can regulate blood sugar levels, and reduce blood pressure as well as the effects of aging. One more important thing: matcha has caffeine in it, thus providing other ways to fight drowsiness! What more can we ask for?
