Matcha Latte without coffee, super healthy and super delicious!
Do you know matcha?
If not you definitely missed something in your diet which is really nutritious and healthy. The first time I drank matcha was 2 years ago while I searched for an option to coffee because coffee often makes me too nervous.
I can drink an espresso but I don’t drink coffee that often. Crazy, right?! Matcha is one of the best options to coffee. Matcha is just 100% pure green tea leaves stone ground into a fine powder.
What is it different to regular green tea?
With regular green tea, you brew hot water with tea leaves but then throw them out afterwards. With matcha, you consume the whole tea leaf along with all its green goodness (I know, how have we not been doing that all along?!) On top of that, matcha tea bushes are grown specially under cover which increases the chlorophyll and amino acid levels in the leaves even further. Matcha can have the nutritional value of up to 10 cups of regular green tea and up to 137 x the antioxidants of regular green tea!
The potential health benefits of green tea are well known and include:
- increased focus and concentration
- higher energy levels
- enhanced metabolism
- stronger immune system
- clearer skin
- general improved wellbeing
