WHY: DoMatcha is free of pesticides, herbicides and other chemical additives… just pure, clean Japanese green tea.  Green tea is known for it’s incredible health benefits including: anti-aging, cancer-fighter (from the high level of antioxidants*, which prevent the damage of our cells that leads to aging and disease), fat-burner (boosting your metabolism and ability to burn calories), detoxification AND energy booster (less caffeine than coffee but gives a great non-jittery boost). The health benefits of matcha green tea are greater than green tea because this condensed form of green tea allows you to ingest the whole leaf not just the brewed water (1 glass of matcha is equivalent to 10x the nutritional and antioxidant levels of green tea).

THE VERDICT: I am a MAJOR fan of MATCHA! A matcha almond milk latte is one of my absolute favorite thing to drink! I have been a longtime fan of DoMatcha. The one tricky part of matcha is that it’s a little challenging to mix (unless you buy the pricey bamboo whisk and bowl)… instead I like to blend it (which creates a little frothy yumminess, and works both hot or cold). And if you like it sweeter, add in a few drops of liquid stevia.
