Matcha powder ceremoniously whisked in water to create a frothy bowl of green tea can almost feel like a Zen experience. Not only is it enjoyable to make, but it is also delicious to drink. While other types of green tea offer your body great health benefits, Matcha is different. In fact, it is one of the most potent, healthy drinks on the planet.

Believe it or not, this tea has been around for hundreds of years. Over time, Japanese Buddhist monks have come to understand the numerous benefits that Matcha green tea provides for the body. Drinking one bowl in the morning can make a difference in your health. All in all, Matcha powder can help to keep your body and mind healthier and happier.

How to Get Healthy (and Stick to It)

Jan 11, 2017 12:39:12 PM
