Matcha green tea seems to be a buzzword these days. So in an imaginary, but very plausible conversation (probably in a health food store or on a tea aisle), it would go something like this:
Person #1: So do you like green tea?
Person #2: Of course, I love green tea.
Person #1: What about matcha green tea? Have you tried matcha?
Person #2: No, but I drink green tea after my meals and sometimes I use it in my smoothies. It's all about those antioxidants, right?
Person #1: For real. Green tea is life! But if you're all about antioxidants, you've got to try matcha green tea. It's like THE green tea of all green teas.
(conversation continues as Person #2 reaches for a canister of matcha green tea)
Upon some research, I discovered that matcha green tea has a plethora of benefits:
- promotes calm
- loaded with antioxidants
- increased energy levels
- supports weight loss
These are just a few, but enough for me to be excited about trying it. Now, I believe that having a couple of cups of matcha won't determine how it benefits the body, but this Full Leaf Organic Sweet Matcha Original was good enough to keep me trying.
Do you drink matcha green tea? If so, what benefits have you noticed?
