is it tea you’re looking for…
I can see it in your eyes… you’ve heard about me. Maybe you’re wondering what all this bright
green powder stuff’s about or maybe you’ve seen pictures flying around of #TeamMatcha
babes. Well you’re in the right place, so let me tell you a little more about me…
what am i?
I started life as special green tea leaves from japan that were handpicked and stone ground into a
fine powder so you can ingest me, however you make me.
You see, brewing tea in the traditional way is kind of like making broccoli for dinner, boiling it in a
pan but throwing out the vegetable and just drinking the broccoli water. A bit silly really. Like with
green tea, you end up chucking 80% of the nutritional value and benefits into the bin.
You definitely want all 100% of my benefits, as matcha gives you long-lasting energy, boosts your
metabolism, aids fat burning, gives you beautiful, clear skin and detoxifies your body.
the sciencey bit.
My green tea leaves were shaded during harvest so they produced more chlorophyll – the
stuff that makes me so green. This is why i’m full of amino acids, antioxidants, fibre and
vitamins. In fact, I have 137 x the antioxidants of normal green tea and am hands down the no.1
superfood on the superfood charts.
Some clever folks at the University of Geneva did studies on me and found I speed up fat
burning by firing up your metabolism like a furnace. Burn baby burn.
The American Journal Of Nutrition also piped up and confirmed I increase fat burning because of
my super antioxidants that divert calories into energy rather than fat storage.
not a teatox.
I might be a detox tea, but i’m definitely not a ‘teatox’. I don’t believe in short term fixes or
using ingredients such a senna, that are basically just laxatives to help you lose weight.
I won’t affect your contraceptive pill or have any bad side effects like cramping or diarrhoea.
