7 Delicious Recipes With Matcha to Try (Besides a Green Tea Latte)

You’ve probably already tried, or at least heard of a green tea latte, and if you’re already a fan, it’s likely you’re also stoked on the amazing flavor and potential health benefits. A little backstory: matcha—which is a powder made from crushed green tea leaves—is rich in polyphenols, an antioxidant that has been shown to protect against heart disease, cancer, aid in blood sugar regulation, blood pressure reduction, and ant-aging. What makes it even better, it is significantly more caffeinated than your good old tea bag and can allow for a calm yet long-lasting alertness that drinkers like myself are a fan of. Despite it’s amazing flavor and potential health benefits, it’s important you consume matcha in moderation and keep the quality in mind when purchasing. When shopping for your matcha powder, you should try to buy one that was grown in Japan and the powder should appear bright green in color.
