Make it Matcha!

I love a good cuppa and am constantly trying new herbal teas, the latest of which is Teapigs Matcha green tea.

Matcha has been getting a lot of hype recently, and for good reason. This concentrated form of green tea is a fine powder that packs one serious nutritional punch! Here’s why…

  • Matcha contains 137 times the antioxidants of regular green tea – these help to fight free radicals that can damage and age your cells
  • Provide an energy boost that can last up to 6 hours – the combination of caffeine and two special amino acids help to boost alertness but keep you feeling relaxed
  • Has 9 times the beta-carotene of spinach – an antioxidant that may help to boost immunity.
  • May help aid weight loss – drinking green tea can increase thermogenesis by 35-43% (a process that can help your body burn more calories)
  • Support healthy skin – green tea naturally contains polyphenols, which can inhibit UV radiation-induced damage.

Matcha is much more versatile than regular green tea; the fresh powder can be drunk as a hot tea, matcha shot or even blended into lattes and juices for endless ways to get your energy boost. My favourite way of drinking it so far is in a Matcha green tea latte with almond milk – tasty, low in calories and easy to make – get the ‘recipe’ here!

Teapigs Matcha green tea is available to order online here.
