What is Matcha?

Matcha is a type of green tea from Japan. It utilizes the whole tea leaf and is ground into a very fine powder. It’s traditionally made by whisking with hot water—not steeping it the way other types of tea are typically prepared. Matcha has an exceptionally high antioxidant and chlorophyll content due to how it’s grown and processed. Making it one of the best additions to your diet! It also contains the l-theanine, which is known as the relaxing amino acid. L-theanine counteracts the negative effects of caffeine so you’re left feeling relaxed yet alert and energized.

1. Matcha Latte
