IN THE KITCHEN:  Why we MATCHA and our favourite latté recipe!

MATCHA MATCHA MATCHA!  Once you matcha you’ll never go back – it’s everywhere and not only is super good for YOU, it’s also super easy to incorporate into your life.

Here’s the coles notes on why and what matcha is:

MATCHA: A specially grown and processed green tea . It is special in two aspects of farming and processing: the green tea plants for matcha are shade-grown for about three weeks before harvest, and the stems and veins are removed in processing. This combination and this process leave you feeling calm yet energized feeling left on you and your bod.

SUPER POWERS: One of the major health benefits of matcha tea is that it delivers a mega dose of antioxidants in every sip. According to the latest innovation in antioxidant research, matcha is packed with exponentially more antioxidants than any other ‘superfood’!

DETOX BENEFITS: Green is truly the color of health. Matcha helps to safely cleanse and purge the body of harmful elements. Chlorophyll the element that gives green tea and other plants their signature verdant color is also a powerful detoxifier, helping to eliminate both chemicals and heavy metals from the body. And because matcha is carefully shade-grown, it is substantially richer in chlorophyll than other green teas, making it a superior daily detox.

NO JITTERS:  Matcha drinkers have been known to have a balanced feeling of calming energy all day long.  No jitters, shakes similar to a caffeine buzz.  

As with anything natural that has healing and health powers – 1 or 2 lattés a day is the standard!
