WHAT IS MATCHA? T e word ‘Matcha’ literally translates to


powdered tea. Grown in Japan, Matcha comes from the same plant as green tea, but diff ers in the way it is produced.


Matcha is grown using a special shading method to boost the plant’s chlorophyll content. Only the younger leaves are picked from the plant, which explains it’s vibrant, electric green colour. When making a cup of regular tea, the leaves are steeped


in water and then discarded, leaving tea leaf fl avoured water to drink. T is is where matcha is special – the leaves themselves are ground into a fi ne powder to enable the entire leaf to be consumed. T e many nutritious benefi ts found in the leaves can therefore be directly ingested into the body.


WHAT IS THE FLAVOUR OF MATCHA? Matcha has a vegetal fl avour, tasting similar to green tea, but is more delicate. It is mildly sweet rather than bitter and has a creamy texture. Its unique and rich taste is defi nitely worth a try.


WHAT MAKES MATCHA A SUPERFOOD? Matcha is an infusion of nutrients. One teaspoon of powder provides surplus vitamins and minerals, including plentiful antioxidants which the body uses to strengthen the immune system. So don’t just eat your greens, drink them too!


WHAT IS THE COST OF MATCHA? With all these benefi ts comes a bit of a price tag, especially if you want a premium quality powder. However, as Matcha is very potent, only a very small amount is needed when drinking or cooking.


HOW TO USE MATCHA


Its powder form means that it is simple to include matcha in your everyday diet in a variety of diff erent ways.


❤ Swap coff ee for matcha - matcha tea or latte contains a relatively high percentage of caff eine, so you will still receive that caff eine boost but forego those coff ee ‘jitters’ as the amino acids contained in matcha have a calming eff ect on the body.


❤ Give yourself a boost - matcha can be used as an afternoon pick-me-up as it provides a natural boost of energy but without the crash, leaving you feeling refreshed and alert. It can also be used specifi cally to promote focus and creativity or even as a pre-workout fuel.


❤ Don’t stop at hot drinks - you can certainly get creative with this versatile green powerhouse. Matcha can be added to smoothies and juices, used in both sweet and savoury cooking or sprinkled over ice cream.
