Green tea is no stranger in our world. We’ve seen it in cafés and restaurant menus. Many of us have probably fallen in love with it. So what is it about green tea powder that is out of the ordinary? You will know if you continue reading!
Also known as matcha, which literally means powdered tea, green tea powder is made by grinding green tea leaves into a fine powder. Although created that way, the power of green tea will not be reduced. With green tea powder, you will consume 100 per cent of the nutrients from the leaves. You have to drink at least 10 cups of regular brewed green tea to be on par with a single serving of green tea powder.
The power doesn’t stop there. Green tea powder is known as an antioxidant powerhouse. Antioxidants play a very significant role in overall skin health. It can fight against negative effects of UV radiation and works better than any anti-aging serum. Even though many fruits and vegetables also contain antioxidants, green tea powder is packed with even more. In every sip of green tea powder you take, you consume a great dose of antioxidants.
Moreover, green tea powder is also an excellent source of Vitamin A and C, supports immune system and metabolism, enhances mood and concentration, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar, and helps prevent diseases. Last but not least, green tea powder can be beneficial for weight loss too, as it burns calories and detoxifies effectively and normally.
You don’t have to worry about the caffeine in green tea powder. Green tea powder only contains roughly 25mg of caffeine, which is approximately one-third the caffeine of a cup of coffee and on top of that, it doesn’t make you hyper. The effect of green tea powder is nothing like coffee. Because of its combination with L-theanine, the relaxing amino acid contained in green tea powder, the “wired” effects of caffeine will be neutralized. So consuming green tea powder will actually make you relax.
Making green tea powder is simple. You can brew it with either hot or cold water, and you can also combined it with any recipe from muffins, cupcakes, brownies, puddings, even guacamole. You can definitely experiment with it.
Storing it is easy too. You can keep green tea powder in a cool and dry place for up to 12 months.
With its incredible benefits and tasty flavor, green tea powder really is a great, yet simple addition to be included in your everyday diet.
