No match for Matcha

When I was studying at University in Japan, I would go on holiday to the typical tourist attractions throughout the country.

In Nara, I once went to a traditional green tea ceremony. I remember the girl in Kimono whisking the Matcha powder in hot water. It was served with a hard sweet cookie to offset the Matcha’s bitter after taste. A distinct flavor I have never forgotten.

Now Matcha seems to be very popular in the US as a super-antioxidant.  A powerhouse of ingredients that can aid in your over-all well being.

  • Burns calories
  • Natural detoxer
  • Rich in fiber
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Lowers blood sugar

You can add the powder to smoothies or your yogurt or even bake with it.

I buy it in a tea bag from Salada. Brew it and then put in a pitcher and keep it cool in the fridge.
