If you follow me on Facebook (which you should!) you probably already know I’m not a coffee drinker. Matcha’s much more my bag.

I hate the taste of coffee. In addition, I’m super sensitive to that much caffeine. I imagine drinking an entire cup would impart a similar reaction as a hit of crack for me. But since I’ve never done the latter, I’m not entirely sure.

Matcha is such a healthier, tastier alternative. First of all, it’s creamy and a bit sweet. I love starting my day with the below recipe for my matcha green tea latte. It’s such a treat.

Not to mention it’s seriously healthy. Here are some benefits:

  • high in antioxidants (roughly 100x more than green tea)
  • high in EGCg
  • boosts memory, concentration, and focus
  • contains caffeine – more than green tea but less than coffee
  • boosts the immune system
  • increases energy
  • high in chlorophyll, which helps detoxify the body

In conclusion, drink matcha and green tea! They’re good for you.

  1. I love matcha green tea as well, I drink it every day. I recently decided to start a pre-pregnancy diet so I started researching matcha to make sure it would be safe. I found a lot of information about the caffeine content in matcha which I don’t find surprising. But a real concern that I read was that Matcha can inhibit your bodies ability to take in folate, which we know is very important in neural tube development. My question is have you heard about this? I am concerned since the most important time in neural tube development is before I would even know that I am pregnant! I love your blog because it aligns perfectly with my beliefs! Thanks for all the wonderful information!!

      I haven’t heard of this, I’ll look into it.

  2. Your Matcha Green Tea Latte

    I want to do things healthier, but a lot of it requires coconut water.

    I am allergic to coconut.

    What do you suggest as a substitute for coconut water.

    So is this a cold drink (or room-temperature)? I enjoy having a cup of hot tea in the morning. Can I heat this or will the heat destroy many of the benefits? I know heating honey destroys many of health benefits. But what about matcha?

      Heat is fine, though if using honey it won’t be as beneficial.
