I’ve always been a big fan of matcha (aka a specially grown and processed green tea, typically in a finely-grounded powder form, which gives off a very unique aroma and flavour when you brew it). Not only is it super delicious, it’s also extremely good for the body as it’s packed with antioxidants and vitamins which help to boost metabolism, burn calories, detoxify, lower both cholesterol and blood sugar as well as prevent diseases. Best of all, matcha contains a very unique, potent class of antioxidant known as catechins (which isn’t found in other foods, btw!) that is said to provide cancer-fighting properties. How amazing, right?! There is honestly just soooo matcha to love. The best news . . . Davids Tea carries several matcha tea blends and tea-infused chocolates. Think: matcha paired with Genmaicha, maple, peach, vanilla, mint and even our fave superfood—kale! Of course, don’t get me started on the chocolate selection: white chocolate with matcha matsu, milk chocolate with maple matcha and matcha matsu white chocolate-covered hazelnuts. What can I say other than, I think they are all matchas made in heaven.
