Matcha Lattes seem to be very popular lately despite green tea being an old Japanese tradition. Matcha is a powdered version of green tea but much more potent and boasts more antioxidants than goji berries, green and black tea leaves, blueberries, Acai and pomegranate.
One cup of Matcha is equivalent to 10 cups of green tea. Matcha contains caffeine but also contains an amino acid called L-Theanine. L-Theanine has a calming affect therefore you feel more alert but don’t have that awful caffeine crash after a cup of coffee.
As Matcha comes in a powdered form, you can use it for baking, desserts, smoothies and even seasoning. There are two distinctive types of Matcha, Ceremonial and Culinary. Ceremonial Matcha is very expensive and should only be whisked with hot water to enjoy all it’s flavour. Culinary Matcha is more astringent in flavour therefore pairs really well with sweet stuff.
