Matcha Green Tea Benefits

I used to be a green tea drinker and then I had 3 little boys and that buzz wasn't cutting it.  I turned to Americanos (espresso with water) and rarely looked back after my 3rd son wouldn't sleep through the night for almost a year.  But lately, espresso and/or coffee was leaving me feeling dizzy, foggy, less than focused and even tired and lazy.  This is where I finally decided to jump on the Matcha bandwagon and I'm loving it!  The energy boost from Matcha is exactly as described below.  I feel really clear and energized....like after a great workout.

What is Matcha?
Matcha is a powder made from ground green tea leaves that are especially high in chlorophyll due to the way they're grown.

What are the benefits of Matcha?

Increased energy, concentration and focus without the jitters or anxiety that sometimes comes from coffee-
The amino acids in Matcha balance the caffeine and stimulate brain waves that help with concentration and focus.

Healthy heart and body-
Match is extremely high in antioxidants making it heart healthy (helping to lower LDL cholesterol and blood pressure) and possibly having protective effects against some cancers.

Anti-aging-
Matcha contains antioxidants and EGCG which help reduce inflammation and oxidative damage to the skin.

Calorie-burning-
The compounds in Matcha increase the rate of burning stored fat as energy and increase the overall number of calories burned per day.

Detoxifying-
The high chlorophyll content in Matcha is thought to help with detoxifying.

Matcha can be found at most tea/coffee shops and many grocery stores.  There are special bamboo whisks and spoons available, but I just use a regular mini whisk.  Maybe I'll get fancy one day...

Enjoy!

  4. Not only green tea in fact black tea , white tea, puer tea and oolong tea all are made from the same plant i.e. Camellia Sinesis plant. But with different oxidization techniques that's why green tea is more useful than black tea and other. See here the infographic of interesting facts about tea.
