10 Ways to Use Matcha Tea
You may not think there are that many ways to use Matcha tea (other than in regular old water), but there are! But first, why is Matcha ?
Matcha tea is a Japanese tea that uses the entire Matcha leaf. Rather than soaking leaves in hot water, you add Matcha’s powdered leaves which enables you to ingest more nutrients. Compared to traditional green tea, Matcha contains up to 100 times the amount of antioxidants, making it a good choice for any type of diet.
