WHAT IS MATCHA
Matcha is a particular type of green tea made from tea leaves that are grown in the shade. The leaves are then deveined and ground to powder. This process removes the usual bitterness from the powder, making it one of the most delicious green teas out there.The shade also helps increase the chlorophyll content in the leaves, up to 5 times that of regular tea. This added chlorophyll gives the leaves their unmistakable bright green colour and endows them with high concentrations of antioxidants and nutrients. One of them is l-theanine, an amino acid that helps regulate the stress hormone cortisol, benefiting your overall mood and keeping you relaxed.
Why is it good for me?
The list of benefits are practically endless, but here are a few:
-The abundance of antioxidants and nutrients cleanses and detoxifies the body giving you a healthy glow.
-L-theanine stimulates the production of alpha brain waves giving you an incredible ability to focus.
-Keeps cortisol in check, helping you remain stress-free.
-Mediates caffeine uptake, giving your system a clean and constant flow of energy.
-Matcha is naturally low in sugar, naturally gluten-free and suitable for vegans.
Now, how’s that for a perfect match?
