I am so in love with this high quality beverage, you won’t believe it ! I am currently craving this drink constantly, is it because of its health properties, its emerald green colours ? I don’t know ! What I know is that Matcha tea is the luxury version of the green tea. It is a powdered emerald green tea made from the tea leaves. Once dried and grounded and finely powdered, they made into a solution, traditionally by mixing about a teaspoon of matcha powder with a third cup of water (heater not boiled) which is then whisked with a bamboo brush until it froths.
The first time I gave a try I was in the tea shop T2 where I tasted a matcha latte with soya milk and honey, it was so yummy, just to think about it, I would love to have one right now ! As a result, my beverage was so creamy that I fell in love with it immediately. In one drink you have a bunch of wellness, a delicate and creamy texture to it and a well-preserved break from the hustle of this world. Yes, some peace to enjoy alone this affordable luxury drink.
And there is no point to be guilty, trust me! matcha has much more potent nutrients than steeped green tea. It is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols aimed to protect against heart disease, cancer, helps blood regulation, blood reduction, boost metabolism and contains vitamins and minerals good for us mentally and physically.
Matcha is the key to create mental alertness and clarity, (maybe that’s why my body is craving this drink sooooo much !), when you drink it, you have the feeling to be alert but calm, awake but aware, you have everything to face the challenges of the day.
