Teangle Matcha tea is everywhere. Matcha tea is a special kind of green that is produced in Japan. It is pretty much a form of green tea, but whereas most of the world’s green tea comes from China, matcha tea comes from Japan. They are cultivated slightly differently, but have the same grassy flavor that green tea has.
I’m excited to have teamed up with Teangle, a Canadian brand that has a set of three flavors of matcha tea, with slightly different ingredients and benefits. I received the Chai, and the Ginger & Lemongrass flavors.
It is very high in antioxidants.
Antioxidants are pretty much what stabilize these bad things in our bodies called free radicals, which can cause chronic illnesses. Matcha tea also contains a host of vitamins like C, chromium, selenium, magnesium and zinc. These are all very important for your skin and your heart health.
It boosts your brain health.
Matcha tea contains a slightly higher concentration of caffeine than green tea does. It also contains this compound called L-theanine which is very known for increasing mental focus, helps you sleep better and can help with anxiety. Mental alertness, and extra good feelings are always a win in my book.
It can help you lose weight
Almost every weight loss product, contains “green tea.” Green tea can help promote weight loss because it helps make your metabolism more efficient. It is obviously, not a magical ingredient, but it sure is healthy for your body! It is mostly used as a supplement in one’s weight loss journey.
If you are on the fence about trying matcha tea, Teangle would be a great company to start with. Like they say, “matcha waiting for?”
