Tea with super powers

I'm pretty sure matcha is some sort of magical tea from above! however it's not, it's actually just green tea leaves from Japan, ground it to the most amazing green powder that kicks afternoon slumps in the bum. As the whole tea leaves are ground you get ALL nutrients, goodness and benefits.

When it comes to hot drinks I'm a tea girl all the way, I do enjoy coffee especially if it's iced but it does leave me feeling pretty jittery, so I limit my coffee intake and only have it occasionally. This is where matcha is my saviour!  One little scoop of this glowing green powder gets me right in the zone without any jitters, perfect.

I took part in the teapigs matcha challenge during may, it's where you have matcha everyday for 2 weeks in whichever way you like, be it; lattes, shots, smoothies or even added to food. It's actually incredibly versatile and really easy to add into your every day life, plus if the taste isn't something you dig it can be easily masked but you can still get all the amazing benefits.

When I took the challenge the first thing I noticed was the increase in my energy, and that was just on day one, plus I found it really helped me get stuff done especially on really hectic days. Some other benefits are helping with concentration, alertness, antioxidants, slow release energy, calorie burning and can help promote healthy skin! I'm certainly going to keep up with adding matcha into my daily routine and look forward to seeing more benefits over time. 

Do you use matcha? What's your favourite way to use it?
