Green smoothie with Matcha Green Tea powder post work out . Another little addition to perk up an already awesome smoothie. I could use something like spirulina…..but honestly it tastes like shiz (come on, you’re all thinking it!). Matcha extract on the other hand is very mild in flavour and tastes like, well, green tea.

Matcha is the highest quality Japanese powdered green tea available. It’s made from young leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant and has been consumed for thousands of years in the Far East.

It’s considered to be one of the most powerful super foods on the market today and contains organic compounds called catechins which are some of the most potent antioxidants out there. They are known for their cancer fighting properties. Scientists have found that Matcha Green Tea contains over 100 times more specific antioxidants than any other green tea.

If you want a little zen in your life, Matcha Green Tea has been used by Chinese Daoists and Japanese Zen Buddhist monks for relaxation and meditation.

Matcha is capable of naturally removing heavy metals and chemical toxins from the body due to its high chlorophyll content. It also has antibiotic properties which support ypur general health and immunity.

There are other nutrients to enjoy with Matcha Matcha tea too: Potassium, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C and protein.

Mr Tonic is well into his Matcha tea. We order our goodies from wholefoods suppliers on Amazon mostly. But I’m sure you’d be able to get it in a health food shop.
