What is matcha?

Matcha is a potent green powder that is made from whole tea leaves which are finely ground into a powder form. It can be made into a delicious tea or latte, or added into smoothies to boost nutrition, energy and taste!

How does it benefit us?

  • Great source of energy – Matcha has similar amounts of caffeine as coffee and green tea but the amino acid L-Theanine, makes us feel alert and calm, reducing the anxious feeling you often get from consuming too much caffeine.
  • Promotes weight loss – This low calorie powder helps to boost our metabolism naturally due to its thermogenic affect.
  • Rich source of antioxidants – Helps to fight off certain diseases, such as cancer.
  • Helps to detoxify our body – Matcha’s high chlorophyll content helps to remove toxins from the body and promotes regular bowels.
