Matcha Latte

Matcha Latte

Matcha Green Tea is one of my favourite discoveries of the last couple of years. And after trying it in various forms from ice-cream, to cake to a brewed pot of tea, I found my favourite version by far. The creamy, sweet and energising latte, that you can make for yourself at home in a flash.

Swapping a coffee shop brew for this could make you feel a whole lot better.

It is an expensive tin of tea to buy, but you use a tiny amount for each cup and it lasts forever, and is a whole lot cheaper than a high street coffee every day. Keep the tin in the fridge to ensure it stays fresh.

Drunk in Japan forever as a ceremonial drink for warriors and royalty, it is now popular everywhere and been shown to give you energy, increase thermogenesis (calorie-burning) and alertness, whilst also imbuing calm and relaxation. What a combination!

With an incredible quantity of antioxidants in matcha, you are drinking the ground powdered tea leaves, you get so much more of the benefits than a brew of green tea.

With half the caffeine of coffee, but added benefits of L-Theanine, an amino acid that balances the caffeine and means the resulting energy lasts longer.
