Boost your morning energy in just a few minutes,

Depending on your taste and preference, there are several ways to kickstart the day with a Matcha Boost:

 

Traditional preparation

1) Preparation of Matcha with water:

Place a leveled teaspoon of Matcha powder in a bowl and add 100ml of water at 60-70 °. To preserve the benefits of Matcha, do not use boiling water, but let it cool for about 10 minutes.

Mix well or beat with a whisk until foaming to avoid lumps. A small electric whisk can be very useful in stead of the "Chasen" (traditional bamboo whisk). It is very important to close the box of Matcha well and place it in the refrigerator after each use.

 

2) For a Matcha Latte-Matcha Chino

The easiest and fastest is to froth a teaspoon of Matcha in 100 ml of dairy or plant based milk in a milk frother. For a light version, dilute the milk (50ml of water and 50ml of milk).

Alternatively you can prepare your Matcha with water, in the traditional way. Then froth your milk separately and pour it into the Matcha, always being careful not to use boiling liquid.

 

Our Matcha expresses very little bitterness and naturally contains sugars. However, if you wish, you can add a little sugar or a few drops of agave syrup.

  • What is Matcha?

    This powder will have no more secrets for you!

    It is not a  simple tea powder. Savoring a Matcha tea is a unique experience as much for its taste as for the pleasure of admiring its flamboyant green color. Thanks to modern biochemical analysis techniques, which can determine and study the molecules that have earned Matcha to be classified in the category of "superfoods", we know that it represents a concentrated version of all the benefits of green tea. So one cup of Matcha would be the equivalent of about ten cups of green tea! Various university studies have shown that its concentration of Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is 100 times higher than that of classic green teas. Not being infused like other green teas, Matcha further preserves the action of these bioactive molecules. After opening, the box of Matcha powder must be tightly closed and stored in the refrigerator.

  • The 6 main benefits of Matcha tea

    1. Antioxidant, the "Matcha Cleanser"

    In addition to catechins, green tea contains 2 other antioxidants with outstanding health benefits: thearubigins and theaflavins. It must be highlighted that their concentration and therefore their antioxidant effect is substantially higher in Matcha compared to normal green tea.

     

    2. Weight loss

    Matcha also seems to play a very important role in stimulating metabolism, which has earned it the nickname "fat burner". Numerous studies have shown that its' EGCG interacts positively with the hormones involved in fat mobilization. In addition, Matcha is a nourishing drink, while having very few calories. The combination of EGCG and L-theanine seems to act positively on appetite regulation and would therefore be a natural appetite suppressant.

     

    3. Energy boost and Cholesterol reduction

    Matcha can help losing weight and mobilize energy at the same time. Therefore, Matcha is chosen by many athletes to accompany their training sessions. In the same context and in direct relation with the same molecules, several studies show that Matcha can help reducing cholesterol and blood pressure.

     

    4. Matcha versus coffee; better than coffee!

    The concentration of caffeine in Matcha is significantly lower than in a cup of espresso, but it is above all its absorption and expression that are very different. In coffee, caffeine is found in its "free" form with almost immediate action, but the effect lasts for only 2 to 3 hours in average.

    The caffeine in green tea and particularly in Matcha is linked to L-theanine and submitted to the presence and their effects of tannins. Its metabolization in this case is therefore very different and its effect settles in more slowly to last much longer, 6 to 8 hours in average. This fact makes Matcha an ideal morning drink.

     

    5. Inner and outer beauty

    Matcha is also rich in fibers
