We’ve just added a new item to the menu you just might want to check out...a Matcha Latte!
Matcha [MA-cha] is a green tea, carefully grown and ground into powder. It's one of the superfoods of the world, and has been part of the Japanese culture since the 12th century!
It differs from regular green tea in a few ways:
- The leaves are grown and dried in the shade to preserve the natural nutrients found in the leaves. Regular green tea is dried in the sun (heat), and is much more processed.
- You consume the whole leaf when drinking Matcha, gaining the benefits of all the nutrients.
- Some say Matcha is a more powerful superfood than even goji berries, having six times the antioxidants in just one teaspoon! It has 137 times more antioxidants than regular green tea.
- When the nutritional content is compared, Matcha is equal to 10 cups of green tea. It is 5x higher in chlorophyll than regular tea.
Matcha is a great addition to your diet since it raises the metabolism and provides a lasting energy without the caffeine crash you get with coffee.
Our Matcha Latte is made with 100% Organic Teapigs Matcha Powder, and your choice of milk. Available hot or iced. (Note: Some people prefer it sweetened, so be sure to tell our baristas if that is the case.)
