Leah’s healthy tips

Choose matcha powder over tea leaves when you can as the nutrients in matcha powder is incredibly more powerful than loose tea leaves. A study done found that it contains 137 times more EGCG (an antioxidant that helps to fight cancer cells) than loose green tea leaves!

 

Did you know?

Matcha was first discovered 4000 years ago in China, and was brought over to Japan by Japanese monks in the 7th century. Tea farms and agriculture started around monasteries in the Uji region (near Kyoto), and so the birthplace of Matcha was formed.

Time to add that to our bucket list hey?
