Matcha is a powdered green tea with a smooth, frothy texture. It’s perfect as a warm drink on its own or a delicious ingredient in smoothies. What makes matcha stand out amongst other green teas is that the whole leaf is consumed, maximizing the amount of vital nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants. A few of the amazing health benefits include lowering blood pressure, balancing blood sugar, boosting your immune system.
My Matcha Gotcha is the perfect thing for increasing your immunity in order to protect against colds this season.
