If you’re anything like me you appreciate a good aesthetic, and you want to know the latest trends. Whether that be fashion or food- in this week’s case beverages. Matcha has been a buzz word in the realm of trendy things for a while. But what actually is matcha? Long story short it’s green tea, go figure. It is packed with antioxidants because unlike green tea brewed in water, matcha is a finely ground powder made of Japanese green tea leaves. Similar to everyone’s tried and true favorite, coffee, matcha gives you caffeine without the crash or jittery side effects of java. Matcha is not just a plain old beverage, you can incorporate it into your diet through a smoothie, frozen yogurt or add it as a supplement to numerous different baking mixes. Yay! Go Matcha!
