Iced Matcha Latte

April 25, 2017

If you’re a green tea fan, you’ll love this iced matcha latte.  Matcha is a specially grown and processed form of green tea that’s finely ground into a powder.  During growth the plant produces theanine and caffeine.  This particular combination produces a calming energy.  Versus the nervousness we get from straight caffeine.

Because it’s a powder, it’s not generally found in a tea bag.  We dissolve it in water to consume it.  I personally like the flavor better than straight up green tea.  It’s not as bitter.  And green tea gives me a belly ache if I have it on an empty stomach.  I’ve noticed matcha doesn’t do that.

Iced Matcha Latte

In traditional Japanese and Chinese culture drinking it as a hot tea embodies a meditative spiritual ceremony as well.

Other health benefits of matcha:

  • Extremely high in antioxidants
  • Increases energy level
  • lowers cholesteral
  • detoxifies
  • enhances concentration
  • improves skin
  • stimulates metabolism
