If you're not drinking Matcha Green tea yet you should start! Matcha is a powder form of entire leaves dissolved in water rather than steeped in tea bags. One cup has as many antioxidants as 10 cups of regular tea, making it a super powerful high-quality tea rich in health benefits.
The antioxidants called polyphenols have been tied to protection against heart disease and cancer, blood pressure reduction, and anti-aging. Matcha contains EGCG which has been shown to boost metabolism and slow growth of cancer cells.
It contains caffeine like coffee, but has Itheanine, a natural substance providing an "alert" calming effect providing stress reduction.
Make sure you don't skimp on quality though. Pure high-quality Matcha is relatively expensive in comparison to regular tea, but you only need a teaspoon a day to achieve all the numerous benefits. It's worth it!
