I started hearing about matcha green tea a couple of years ago and I must say, I had heard it was healthy, but I didn’t know the exact health benefits behind this magical green tea powder. It was the newest rave so of course I had to give it a good try – and who wouldn’t love a cute green muffin or colorful latte in a chic tea spot? After trying it and enjoying it, I started looking into various recipes that I can make at home. And let me tell you my friends, the possibilities are endless. Add in its huge health benefits – such as its high concentration of antioxidants (giving us all younger-looking skin), cancer-fighting properties and components that help induce relaxation (here’s looking at you, mommy friends), increase metabolism, burn fat, ability to naturally detoxify the body, among many other benefits – and you have yourself a firm believer in matcha.
