Matcha Green Tea has been used for centuries to energise people through their long days. Why? This superfood provides you with a quick, clean natural energy hit to enable you to perform your workout, focus on your meeting or simply get through those sluggish moments. Drink a cup of Matcha Green Tea for an energising, vitalising, focussed energy hit. No crash or jitters as associated with Coffee.
There are two methods for traditionally preparing Matcha Green Tea; Koicha (produces a thick Matcha) and Usucha (produces a thin Matcha). Koicha is sweeter and mellower, requiring very little water to mix and results in a thicker drink than Usucha. Koicha is the method for preparing Matcha for Japanese tea ceremonies. Usucha has more water than Koicha and so is easier to froth. Both preparations only have 2 ingredients- Matcha Tea powder plus hot water (preferably filtered).
Matcha Green Tea can also be enjoyed in lattes, smoothies and in baking. For a quick and easy Matcha Latte you only need 4 ingredients: Kineta Matcha Powder, coconut sugar/ local honey (if you have a sweet tooth), warm water and milk (preferably non-dairy).
