Are you over the flowers and over the candy for Mother’s Day?!? I know I am. I think my beauties could treat this tired mommy to a spa day and some rejuvenation. I just treated myself to amazing ceremonial grade green tea powder from Jade Leaf Matcha and I think its the best I’ve come across! I am always on the hunt for a new “good for me” tea. Matcha is known for its health benefits as it is chock full of antioxidants, fiber and chlorophyll. Matcha is literally the best grade green tea leaves ground up into a very fine powder. This next fact will blow your mind; one serving of matcha is equal to 10 cups of green tea! Most of the nutrients can accidentally be trashed when you steep the tea leaves. Ceremonial grade matcha comes from the first harvest and is known for its sweetness. It is considered top grade and thus a little more expensive.
So here is what I do – I mix about 3/4 of a teaspoon (recommended is 1/2-1 tsp) into a mug and add 2oz of water (hot not boiling). I mix with a whisk so it stays frothy and add a little bit more hot water at the end. It is very good; I warn you that you will be hooked on the first try. I also want to mention how calm I feel after drinking it. It must be the L-Theanine that is in it. Whatever it is; I am cool, calm, collected and can easily focus on the day’s tasks at hand. To me, this is the mothership of a good gift for your momma! Ceremonial match pricing starts at $34.95 for 30MG. Classic match starts around $24.95. They also offer individual portioned stick options perfect for our on the go lifestyle! Smoothie mix options also look awesome!
Check them out – a great healthy gift for you and your momma!
