Matcha
« on: August 29, 2016, 11:09:00 AM »
How many of you are drinking Matcha?   It's a green tea powder, but made with young tea leaves that are grown in the shade.


I just started drinking it a few weeks ago, and have to say I love it.   I make it with some frothed milk.  Very yummy.


I was just reading about the health benefits of Matcha here:

Matcha has about 34mg of caffeine, while coffee has about 95mg.

Rita, do you use http://zengreentea.com.au Matcha?

I'm concerned about the caffeine. I drink 2 cups of 1/2 caff coffee in the morning...then 1 cup of decaf green tea (from tea leaves) late morning. I seldom drink any other tea. I drink water with meals...wine with dinner.


What brand are you drinking? I'm really interested because it says it helps with inflammation. Thanks!

I'm still a newbie matcha drinker, so I'm can't recommend a brand per se, but the one I have is Adiago Tea
