It’s the antioxidant heavy weight, punching it’s way past Goji berries, pomegranates and it literally leaves blueberries way back in feather weight. I’m talking about Matcha tea, and even more importantly, The Matcha Reserve tea, who I can only thank for my recent postal delivery, with the delicious organic green and blueberry versions. Ok, so green coffees, cakes, teas, sponges and pasta has been popping up everywhere, and that’s great, but for me, I like this in it’s purest form and I use the ultra premium every morning, post work out to completely chill out and focus on my work, it is also worth a look at the range on their website it’s incredible.

So why Matcha? This blog could be pages long, but In a nut shelll Matcha can boost metabolism which in turn aids burning fat, its almost calorie free and Matcha tea contains a unique, potent class of antioxidant known as catechins, which aren’t found in other foods. In particular, the catechin EGCg (epigallocatechin gallate) provides potent cancer-fighting properties and lastly, the quantity of amino acids, L-theanine contained in Matcha, helps concentration and focus. The best thing about swapping this for coffee is the jitters, even with a caffeine content, the way this affects me is completly different to the nervous, almost anxious energy I receive from a strong expresso, which is mad considering one cup of matcha is the equivalent to around 10 cups of brewed green tea!.

Check The Matcha Reserve out, it’s a great product with great taste!.
