What is matcha and why is it good for you?
Matcha is green tea powder that is made from finely ground green tea leaves which are covered with shade to boost their chlorophyll content and amino-acids. Unlike regular green tea, where you steep the leaves, with matcha green tea powder you consumer the entire leaf, allowing you to grab the maximum benefits from the tea leaves. Matcha is rich in antioxidants, in fact, matcha is the superfood that contains the highest number of antioxidants, surpassing berries and nuts. Antioxidants, specifically catechins, are great for the body when it comes to health benefits, that's why it's said that the health benefits of matcha are numerous, including enhanced brain function, a strengthened immune system, anti-aging and detoxing, just to name a few.
How does maple syrup enhance the flavor and nutritional value of maple matcha latte?
Maple syrup which is a natural sweetener that comes from the sap of maple trees, is amazing not just to add natural sweetness to your maple matcha latte if you're craving a healthier treat, but also because it's rich in essential minerals such as manganese, zinc, and calcium.
Matcha Boosts energy and focus
Thanks to the combination of the caffeine contained in matcha and one powerful aminoacid like L-Theanine, matcha is known as the superfood of the samurai warriors and Buddhist monks, that's because it gives the body energy but at the same time it brings focus to the mind, that's why some people call matcha green tea the elixir of life. Maple matcha latte gives sustained energy without jitters or caffeine crash.
