Matcha powder is rich in antioxidants!

What’s the deal with matcha, you ask? Aside from being absolutely delicious, it’s a nutritional powerhouse! Think about it: when you’re drinking matcha tea (matcha powder + milk or water), you’re drinking whole tea leaves that have been crushed and ground into a fine powder, as opposed to drinking regular green tea wherein leaves are soaked then discarded.

 

Matcha perfectly balances the creaminess of the cake!

 

Matcha powder gives you the full nutritional benefits of the tea leaves: minerals, vitamins, and a large amount of antioxidants. It does contain caffeine, but as opposed to the hit you get from coffee’s caffeine, matcha gives you a more relaxed, calm, and long-lasting alertness.

You can use matcha powder in your baked treats for its earthy and herbal taste (it is delicious with white and dark chocolate), or simply whisk it into milk or water for a healthy drink.
