GREEN TEA EVERYTHING
Literally, green tea everything. I love green tea. It’s my tea of choice as well as matcha desserts! Been an avid fan since I was 12 and it’s just an addiction. Green tea is known to have many benefits and one of them is boosting the metabolism.
Matcha powder is finely grounded green tea leaves that has a higher concentration of antioxidants. One cup of matcha green tea is the equivalent to around 10 cups of brewed green tea. I’ve been adding a teaspoon to my smoothies and drinking a cup before my workouts. Don’t let the colour blind you. When the tea is prepared properly, the taste is different to the brewed green tea bags. It’s more herbal-ly, earthy. If you’re not use to green tea in general, this would take longer to get use to.
The tea will taste bitter if you add hot boiling water straightaway. Leave it to cool for 5-10 minutes then pour the water. A standard tea spoon doesn’t help blend the tea properly and you will be left with the powder settling in on the bottom of the cup. The traditional way is to use a whisk and you can buy it at Dream Matcha Tea Co as well. It does blend lovely when I add it to my smoothies to give me that extra boost even though I can’t taste the matcha flavour. I’ve used this to make pancakes, clean ice cream and oh boy, was it delish! I could add this to many things. The list is endless.
This is good quality matcha and is worth spending £13.99 on. Dream Matcha Tea Co also run have a blog where you can find many yummy matcha recipes.
