Some information about matcha tea

What is matcha actually?

Matcha tea is a powdered green tea from Japan. The powdered tea originally comes from China, but is now particularly popular in Japan. And there this tea is an integral part of everyday life. From the classic Matcha tea to countless foods with the typically finely tart Matcha taste to Matcha Cola, you will find all imaginable (and imaginable) combinations with the popular green tea powder in Japan.

My favorite was the Matcha soft ice cream *dream*. Matcha tea is served free of charge with the ordered dishes in many restaurants and cafés. While matcha tea is still considered quite exotic in Europe, in Japan it is an integral part of drinking and eating culture.

Matcha is so healthy

But why is matcha tea so popular? On the one hand, this is due to its sweet taste, as well as to its numerous properties that have a positive effect on health.

1. Matcha tea contains many antioxidants

Matcha tea contains a lot of antioxidants that can protect the body from free radicals. In particular, the catechins contained in matcha tea work wonders: They are anti-inflammatory, ensure healthy arteries and can even repair cells. Matcha tea contains comparatively much more antioxidants than green tea and is said to be even healthier for this reason.

2. Matcha tea can help with weight loss

Just like green tea, matcha tea boosts the metabolism and can thus help to lose weight. However, this effect is quite small and can in no way replace a balanced diet.

3. Matcha tea is good for the heart

Drinking green tea can lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. This effect is also due to the high concentration of antioxidants.

Coffee alternative: Matcha tea as a healthy pick-me-up

Did you know that a large serving of matcha tea contains about 272 milligrams of caffeine per cup? That's about the same as an espresso.

Because drinking Matcha first stimulates the central nervous system, it leads to a slow release of adrenaline and increases alertness without the sluggish feeling that one often feels after drinking coffee. Matcha tea is even said to improve brain activity and prevent Alzheimer's. Therefore the applies Matcha tea as healthy coffee alternative.
