Matcha powder contains roughly the same amount of caffeine as coffee but its effect on the body is completely different. When drinking matcha, you consume the entire green tea leaf. As matcha is digested, the caffeine molecules bind to more stable molecules found in the tea, like catechins. This process slows the breakdown of the caffeine in the bloodstream and counteracts the negative side effects of caffeine often associated with coffee: no jitters and no crash. Instead, matcha provides a natural energy boost and promotes a state of relaxed alertness.
In the modern world, to be busy if often synonymous with being ‘tired’, ‘stressed’ and ‘distracted’. By pausing the day and enjoying a cup of matcha tea, you allow your mind to focus on the task at hand and be present in the moment. Matcha gives you a chance to organize your thoughts and take time for yourself which is why matcha is used by Buddhist monks to help with meditation.
When living life on the go, it is difficult to find the time to be healthy. Matcha is possibly the most accommodating and versatile of all health foods because it comes in powdered form. It is extremely easy to incorporate matcha into your diet. Drink the finest ceremonial grades of matcha with hot water to appreciate the matcha’s delicate flavor notes. Mix it with cold water for a refreshing cold brew. Or add the lower grades of matcha to smoothies, desserts and even cocktails to reap the benefits of the tea throughout the day.
