More than just tea..
Matcha originates from Kyoto, Japan
Matcha is essentially ground green tea leaves. It’s rich in theanine, an essential amino acid known for alleviating stress. Matcha is great because it can improve digestion, keep you slim, and boost cognitive function (sharper and clearer thinking). It does have caffeine with effects similar to coffee; however, there is no crash. The body reaps these benefits over the course of four to six hours.
Green tea has powerful mind, body, and beauty benefits like fighting inflammation and protecting your body against aging (thanks to vitamins B and E, it boosts collagen production), and it has been shown to boost your metabolism so you burn fat as energy quicker.
If you find your way, around Rockville Maryland, I highly suggest you stop by Kyoto Matcha at the town center. It’s a Japanese coffee shop that sells everything matcha, I literally go there, if not everyday, it’s definitely a weekly thing. However, before I discovered Kyoto Matcha, I’d get a matcha almond milk frappe paired with a ham & cheese croissant from Starbucks. Moral of the story is add matcha to your diet, you won’t regret it. Seriously.
Health Benefits Recap
Matcha contains a class of antioxidants called catechins. Matcha is high in a catechin called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which is believed to have cancer-fighting effects on the body. Studies have linked green tea to a variety of health benefits, like helping to prevent heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer, and even encouraging weight loss.
