So we know green tea is good for you. Well, matcha is green tea, but like, times ten.
No, really — when you drink a serving of matcha, it’s got the nutrition of ten cups of green tea and almost 140x the antioxidants. That’s because you aren’t just drinking an infusion of green tea leaves. You’re consuming the entire leaf, powdered.
Matcha is also mega-packed with chlorophyll, which is why it’s such an enticing spring green. Straight sun power in a cup, babes. Studies have also found that it’s a prebiotic, creating a great environment for your insides.
And the vitamins and minerals in this drink are beyond awesome, especially if you’re looking for the rarer stuff. You’ll get all your immunity-boosting polyphenols, selenium, and L-theanine in one cup (and it’s safer to get these babes from a cup of tea, rather than an extract or supplement).
