For anyone who wanted to know, Matcha is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea. It’s popular in China and Japan and over the course of time, has been slowly been making it’s way into mainstream products such as matcha KitKats, Oreos, Pocky, ice cream, drinks and what ever else you can think of!
Interesting looks and flavors aside, Matcha is supposedly very beneficial to ones health and is an even more potent source of nutrients as compared to steeped green tea. It is also said that matcha is rich in antioxidants that have been tied to the protection of heart disease, cancer, regulation of blood sugar and anti- aging. There’s also caffeine in it so you could say that it could be a better alternative to coffee.
With all its health benefits, it’s no surprise that people have been getting into the matcha craze only problem is, it’s not as easy to get your hands on as one would think.
