Matcha tea is a powerhouse of antioxidants—137 times more antioxidants than plain green tea—and more than found in ginger, blueberry, spinach, and broccoli. Matcha also contains L-theanine, an amino acid, and helps enhance mood, focus, and alertness and also calms the nerves, preserves youth, brightens the skin, and stimulates weight loss. This century-old health elixir increases academic performance, concentration, immunity, energy and vivacity.
Matcha is delicious incorporated in smoothies.
One of my tea discoveries this summer was this energizing and refreshing drink that I bring to work every day. It is thirst quenching and not sweet.
How to make this energizing afternoon drink:
2 cups of water
1 green apple or 1 pear
piece of fresh ginger
1 teaspoon of matcha
1 cup of greens (spinach or kale)
Blend everything and pour the mix into a mason jar. Refrigerate. Drink during the day when you feel tired or experience low energy.
