It has become a trend to consume herbal tea these days. The consumers were initially only known to the regular ‘green tea’ found in the market. The choice today ranges from slimming teas to relaxation teas. The choice is so varied, that one often gets confused as to what is best for the body.
Trending with Matcha
In the recent past, matcha tea has gained its popularity as a health drink both in a powder form as well as in herbal tea bags. This tea has its root in China, and has its flavor spread world wide.
This is made from a variant of green tea, whose leaves are plucked, dried and then roasted and powdered to be able to consume either in the form of herbal tea bags or in eating form like in biscuits, cakes, milkshakes, ice creams etc. People have gotten very experimental with matcha powder, to such an extent by even creating liquor out of this ingredient.
But this is best when consumed as a hot beverage directly either pre or post meals. It is filled with antioxidants which boosts energy as well as helps build the immune system. Always purchase organic matcha powder to reap the best benefits it has.
