Matcha is a powerful caffeine booster and if coffee isn't your first choice in the mornings then here's why you should swap the black cup for the green one!
1. Matcha contains L-Theanine, which is an amino acid that helps the body to process caffeine more sustainably.
2. Matcha has less caffeine than coffee, where coffee offers an immediate spike of energy lasting a short period of time, matcha gives a more sustained energy boost lasting all day. No more caffeine crashing at the end.
3. Matcha is loaded with alkalising properties and oxidants and the matcha powder can be used not only with hot water or milk but also in baked goods. So many reasons why Matcha is better than coffee!
What you need for a Matcha Latte:
