Matcha Tea

Absolutely loving my Mindpower Matcha by Bloom Tea! It combines organic Japanese Matcha with ginger and ginseng for an immune boosting green tea powder that’s naturally high in fibre, naturally low in sugars, naturally fat-free and salt-free. Ideal for mid-morning. More below on the origins and powers of matcha…

Love my @bloomteaslondon matcha! Have started having one every morning after breakfast. This blend is 75% Japanese organic matcha, 20% ginger, and 5% ginseng. Matcha is a finely ground green tea powder, honoured by Buddhist monks as a 'health elixir', and at the heart of the Japanese tea ceremony. Many of the antioxidants in green tea are trapped within the leaves, so the grinding process releases them. The powder is then stored away from light and oxygen to preserve the antioxidants properties. It contains even more antioxidants than green tea, and as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. It has been credited with heightening concentration and enhancing metabolism. Prepare with water around 80c and whisk. Do not put boiling water in! Will lessen the potency. Some people add it to smoothies and food but I rather a straight up cup. I picked this up @holland_barrett in one of their eternal sales! #greens #matcha #antioxidants #caffeineaddict #japanese #tea #teaaddict #energy #ginger #ginseng #skincarefromtheinsideout
