"I’m hooked on Matcha Chai! The blend of fine matcha & aromatic spices is just right. I find it warm & comforting." - Dr. Andrew Weil
Combining matcha tea with masala chai can create a uniquely delightful beverage that offers a blend of potential benefits associated with both matcha and chai.
8 potential ways to optimize wellness by combining matcha tea with masala chai:
- Enhanced antioxidant power: Matcha tea is known for its high concentration of antioxidants, particularly catechins. When combined with the spices in masala chai, which also contain their own antioxidant properties, the beverage may offer even greater antioxidant benefits.
- Increased energy and focus: Matcha tea contains caffeine and L-theanine, which can provide a calm yet alert state of mind. When combined with the energizing spices in masala chai, such as ginger and black pepper, the blend may promote increased energy and mental focus.
- A powerhouse of digestive support: Do you suffer from common gut problems? Both matcha tea and the spices in masala chai, like ginger and cardamom, have traditionally been used to support digestion. Combining them may enhance the digestive benefits of the beverage.
- Super immune system support: The spices in masala chai, such as cloves and cinnamon, have antimicrobial properties that can help support the immune system. Matcha tea, with its high content of antioxidants, may also contribute to immune system health. Together, they may provide additional support for immune function.
- A deliciously deep flavor profile: Combining the earthy and vegetal taste of matcha with the warming and aromatic spices in masala chai creates a unique flavor experience that can be enjoyed by those who appreciate the taste of both beverages.
- No hidden sweeteners or additives: With our matcha masala chai mix, you take charge of your sweetener intake by preparing at home. By doing so, you have full control over the amount of sugar you add to your beverage. Unlike the Starbucks matcha, which contains a blend of green tea and a lot of sugar, and their dairy-free milk options that also often have added sugars, making your drink at home allows you to be mindful of the sweeteners and milk alternatives you use and avoid hidden sugars.
- Supports bone health: Drinking both matcha and masala chai tea offer significant bone benefits due to their rich antioxidant content, including polyphenols, catechins, and flavonoids. These potent polyphenols found in tea have demonstrated their ability to enhance bone mineralization, slow down the reduction of bone mineral density, and boost vitamin D levels in the body.
- Aids in healthy weight management: Both matcha tea and chai contain compounds that can help your body burn fat and maintain a healthy weight. Chai tea contains cardamon, which has been studied to help prevent obesity by improving glucose intolerance, inflammation, and oxidative stress in the liver from high fat diets. Matcha green tea also contains a compound called catechins, which have been shown to help increase fat burn and boost metabolism. Studies have even shown that 2 servings of matcha daily has the potential to rev up your body's ability to lose weight.
