Matcha green tea is the most versatile superfood on the market. When you drink a Minty Matcha Mojito, you’re getting a lot more than a minty mojito.
Though many people know that matcha tea powder is rich in antioxidants, they aren’t exactly sure what makes matcha tea powder so unique.
Well, here’s your answer:
Catechins are natural antioxidants with strong antibacterial qualities. These phytochemicals offer a fine balance of what you need to stay healthy and battle off the bad stuff.
Theanine (also called L-theanine) is an incredibly powerful amino acid, which provides you with the same benefits of caffeine – without the crash that follows. Higher quality matcha powders and green teas contain higher levels of theanine.
Fluorine is a naturally occurring element in matcha green tea. Remember the periodic table from high school science class? Fluorine is situated at atomic number nine on the chart. It’s important for healthy kidney function, and green tea products provide more fluorine than any other drink in the world.
Matcha tea powder is the best way to supply your body with what it needs to make the most out of your day. Try our minty matcha cocktail on a weeknight or with your friends over the weekend.
