There Is a Substantial Amount Of Antioxidants in Magic-Matcha

blog 2

My Love for Matcha I want to Share it with you.


This Japanese Green Powered Tea as I said in an earlier blog is the champagne of all teas.
The health Benefits speak for themselves.
The taste is that of a Savoury/ Sweat warm thick smooth Texture, as you already Know it is green in colour. The darker the green the higher Grade Matcha that it is.

To Drink Matcha it should be enjoyed the traditional way made in a bowl ( Chawan)
Water is boiled then left to cool for 2-3 Minutes.
Half a teaspoon is added Then whisked with a chasesn (Bamboo Whisk/ Spoon / Electric Whisk)

The Matcha then will appear Smooth with a slight fluffy topping.
No Honey is needed but depending on your pallet feel free to give it a whirl.
As Matcha is in Powdered Form it also makes fantastic Lattes, can be added to protein shakes, Cakes, Bread Biscuits.

The list is endless but that is yet for another blog.

Today I just want to share with you a list of Health Properties that you will gain from Consuming Matcha in your daily Diet.

Matcha Is Not Addictive at all, due to the small amount of caffeine released you will never get a caffeine crash as you would with coffee.

Matcha is filled with Antioxidants especially catechins and epigallocatechin gallate 9egcg)
Which offer tremendous health benefits, these antioxidants combat free radicals, if free radicals build up over time, they can lead to chronic disease.

L Theanine helps boost the alpha brain waves which also help to relive stress and anxiety.

You will Consume a good amount of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, and K.

Matcha lowers the bad cholesterol (LDL)
Increased Metabolic rate (Thermogenesis which is the body’s ability to burn fats.

Better Neurological Health. Matcha is filled with L Theanine an amino acid which can boost cognitive health.

 I personally Recommend Starting off with One cup of Matcha a day and building from there.
Why not try it first thing in the morning, you sure will reap the benefits throughout the rest of the morning/mid-afternoon.

I personally kick start my day with a Bowl of Matcha.
Followed straight after with A Matcha Protein Shake.
With these Cold Mornings and being a suffer of Chilblains the Thermogenic properties of matcha help with my condition.

Hope you enjoyed the read I return Again Soon.

My Love for Matcha Will Continue.

Magic Matcha Tea

Magic Matcha Tea

I have a passion for Matcha and I wish to share my story with you

Part 1 of many more

This Champagne of teas has been around for hundreds of years and is still yet to be explored to its fullest here in Cardiff.

For well over 800 years’ monks throughout Japan and china have been drinking Matcha .
It is loaded with Chlorophyll which gives the human body an energy boost.
Warriors Would consume Matcha tea prior to a fight, so also really good as a pre workout drink.

It also contains several high antioxidant properties as it is packed with Catechins which remove free radicals from the body (Free Radicals are little terrors that attack your cells and course aging)

Matcha Is Powered tea in its purest form, the greener the matcha powder the higher the level of Chloropyll.

Dated Back over 800 years ago Monks would drink matcha tea to maintain focus and alertness for their long mediation sessions.

This Refreshing Light Green tea releases caffeine slowly in to the bloodstream, you get up to 6 hours of added energy with no jitteriness or the crash you would get from a cup of coffee.

Matcha Tea Is a Natural source of

Vitamin C
Amino Acid (L-Theanine which works wonders in helping to boost mental alertness at the office or at university.
Full of Antioxidants which promote oxygen supply to the heart.
A Cup of Matcha Green tea has 100 Times More antioxidants than a cup of Green Tea!

Matcha is Also packed with EGCG( Epigallocatechin 3 gallate) Which helps prevent swelling and inflammation in the human body.

I Suggest Drinking 3 Cups of This Champagne Tea Per Day.
It Works wonders for your skin, helps with general alertness and acts as a great metabolic booster as it has thermogenic properties.
