Organic Matcha Powder

About

Matcha is a special variety of green tea, stoneground into a fine powder. All the nutritional properties of the tea leaves are ingested, not letting any of the goodness go to waste. Matcha tea leaves are shade grown before harvest, significantly increasing the chlorophyll and amino acid content well above that of standard green teas. Loaded with antioxidants, amino acids and chlorophyll, the benefits of matcha powder include enhanced concentration and focus, improved energy and immunity, increased metabolism, and elevated mood with an inner calm. Essentially, matcha powder provides enhanced mental alertness without the jitters common with coffee consumption. Traditionally, Japanese monks were known to sip matcha tea to help ease their mind and create focus for meditation. One cup of matcha is reported to have the nutritional value of up to 10 cups of regular green tea and over 100x the antioxidants!

Uses

Matcha is very versatile! Just 1/2-1 teaspoon can go a long way. Whisk up a teaspoon of matcha with hot water to make a paste, then heat with your choice of milk into a delightful matcha latte. This recipe for a creamy, superfood Matcha Latte is ridiculously easy and makes the perfect morning energiser as a substitute for coffee. Matcha can also be included in smoothies and chia puddings, like this sweet and delicious Matcha Chia Pudding, which only takes a few minutes to prep, or this Basil Seed Trifle with Matcha & Berries that goes down just as well for dessert as it does breakfast! Matcha powder can even add a brilliant green, nutrient-rich dose to raw and baked treats, like this Coconut Ice treat that combines a sweet, coconutty flavour with a satisfyingly crumbly texture. Get creative with matcha powder, adding it to both sweet and savoury foods for a nutrient boost.
