Have you ever had green tea ice cream? It is SO delicious and amazing. It is one of my favorite flavors.

It doesnt take just any tea to make green tea, but the best one to use it powdered matcha green tea. What is Matcha green tea?

Well matcha green tea is a very powerful green tea. One glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content. It is fights free-radicals and cancers and has a higher amount of antioxidants than any other green tea.  It also helps burn fat!

Matcha green tea is able to do all of this wonderful stuff in the higher potency because you are actually consuming the entire leaf and not just what is water soluble.

This green tea is also great for relaxation, it contains a higher dose of a vital amino acid called L-theanine that helps promote alpha waves in your brain. Having a hard time remembering things? Matcha can help improve your memory!

Need a mid-day pick me up? Not a problem, drink some matcha. It can also help improve your physical endurance! So if you are a runner, this is probably a great drink to add to your daily life. Not to mention it also burns calories. It can burn calories better than the questionable pills out there today by four times! It also does not raise blood pressure or heart rate, and is natural so you don’t have any nasty side effects.

By being able to consume the entire leaf you are also getting the added benefits of the chlorophyll still inside! Chlorophyll is a great way to help detoxify your body be eliminating harsh chemicals and heavy metals. Since matcha is shade-grown  the chlorophyll is higher because it is not degraded as easily by the sun.
