An easy way to get slow-releasing caffeine with your morning breakfast

There’s a new superfood everyone’s talking about right now – Matcha. If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a an enhanced, stronger green tea that comes in the form of a powder. Grown by the original tea-masters in Japan, Matcha is loaded with antioxidants and slow-releasing caffeine. In fact, a single serving of matcha is equal to half a cup of coffee! I have fallen in love with it and I hope I’ll help you see what I see in it today.

The proven health benefits of Matcha

Matcha tea is unique because with any other tea, you steep the leaves thus, drawing out some of the nutrients. You then throw out the remaining good stuff when you dispose of the leaves. On the other hand, with Matcha, the rich, green leaves are ground to a fine powder and dissolved in to each little cuppa. So, when you drink a cup of Matcha tea, you are getting every bit of good stuff you can. Not a smidgen is wasted! It is:

High in antioxidants and loaded with catechin
Also, enhances calm and boosts memory and concentration
Increases energy levels and endurance
Also, burns calories and detoxifies the body
Lastly, fortifies the immune system
