Why Matcha

I suffer from anxiety. I have opened up about this topic several times before via social media.

I think too many are struggling with it and not enough people talk about it. If more people talk about it, the more likely we could all help one another in finding solutions in how we can lessen this terrible mental illness that takes a toll on ones every day life. There are a few key things I do daily to help reduce my anxiety…and one of the major ones is ditching coffee and consuming matcha instead.

Matcha provides an energy boost while at the same time calming the mind and body. Matcha can help one feel alert and focussed without a crash. Matcha contains an amino acid called L-theanine; which reduces stress and anxiety.

Green tea bags vs Matcha powder

When you consume matcha you ingest the entire leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf Matcha. Powdered green tea has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea. There are so many health benefits from consuming matcha. It is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and enhances mood and aids in concentration. It also has vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium.

That’s enough talk on why to drink Matcha now lets talk about how to make the perfect Matcha latte! Only a few ingredients and a very versatile recipe. I always use a plant based milk because I love the creaminess it adds to the latte. You could use any milk you would like. I usually go for almond or oat milk. Then I choose what type of sweetener I want. Typically I use 100% pure maple syrup or coconut sugar, if I want opt out from using a processed sugar I will use a couple medjool dates!
