When it comes to improving your health through your diet, matcha green tea is the drink of the moment.
The tipple is fast becoming the ultimate must-have morning cuppa for health-conscious celebrities and nutritionists. And all for good reason.
Green tea – and matcha tea in particular – has been shown to have health benefits that go above and beyond those of regular tea or coffee.
Matcha tea is a type of green tea in a powdered form. It originates from Japan, where it’s best known for its use in tea ceremonies. Matcha, other green teas and regular (black) tea are actually made from the same plant – Camellia sinensis. Most green teas are simply made by steaming fresh Camellia leaves, but making matcha tea involves a more complex process.
