Matcha: The Healthiest Tea
Among the different types of teas, Matcha tea is the healthiest tea. It is packed with extreme content of antioxidants that offer tremendous health benefits to keep the body strong and healthy. Its richness in antioxidants contributes in strengthening the immune system to trap harmful radicals that enter the body preventing the development of certain diseases. Many studies claim that the antioxidants in Matcha tea also inhibit the growth of certain tumors and cancers. Matcha tea also detoxifies the body. It has the capacity to remove toxins from the body due to its powerful antioxidants. Toxins are trapped and deposited in the intestinal tract which are eventually released as wastes. Matcha tea also increases metabolism by 35 – 40%. Calories and fats are burned naturally and converted into energy. Because of its fat burning ability, it can help in weight management. Weight increase is therefore prevented. Matcha tea has Theophylline , a type of caffeine that naturally increases energy level. This type of caffeine in absorb by the body in small quantities resulting to a sustained energy for 4 to 5 hours. Thus, Matcha tea ensures that the body is active and the mind is mentally alert and focused.

This Matcha is perfect for beginners to the fine art of making Matcha, also for those who love to cook with Matcha and make delicious Lattes, It has many functions. The aroma is creamy and sweet, blending notes of fresh hay, grass, and a bit of yeasty flour. Once whisked with water, the color is not quite as vibrant, also the aroma is not quite as sweet. Instead there are strong notes of fresh vegetation and kale with a finish of nuttiness. It has a brisk aroma. The taste of this Matcha is quite vegetal, like a blend of bitter kale, spinach, and grass. At the finish there is a slight nutty sweetness, but mostly, when prepared in a traditional way this tea is quite bitter. Not for the faint of heart! When made as a latte or sweetened, all bitterness fades and you are left with a delicious green treat. The taste is like late summer with notes of fresh hay, grass, spinach, and a touch of sesame seed nuttiness.
HOW TO MAKE FRAPPE/LATTE
Cold Frappe Recipe: Mix 1 teaspoon of Matcha Tea powder, glass of milk, few ice cubes and sweetener. For best results, use a blender. Dollop with frothed milk or whipped cream.
Warm Latte Recipe: Bring 1 cup of unsweetened milk to a bare simmer (do not boil - very hot temperature will “burn” green tea and make it bitter). Whisk 1 oz of milk with 1 teaspoon of Matcha tea powder and sweetener of your choice. Top it with the rest of warm milk. Dollop with frothed milk or whipped cream. Enjoy!!!
Traditional: Sift 1 tsp matcha into a cup using a small sifter. Add 2oz hot water. For best results use water just under a boil. Whisk vigorously in a zig zag motion until the tea is frothy. Adjust measurement to suit taste. For more delicate flavor use 6-8oz of water and sweetener of your choice."
