It’s Easy Being Green

When you say green, aside from nature, another thing I can think of is — matcha! I can’t quite remember when I first joined in to this matcha craze. But I’m all for whatever matcha there is (not really! haha).

Matcha is the powdered form of green tea. Studies have shown that green tea has a higher percentage of caffeine than coffee. However, it has been known to give numerous health benefits such as (Source)

  • high in antioxidants
  • boosts memory
  • relaxes the mind and body
  • increases energy and and endurance levels
  • burns calories
  • detoxification

But I doubt that these matcha stuff that I’ll show you below has equal benefits to these claims. Here’s my image gallery for this week’s challenge — It’s easy being green.

So, those were some of the delectable matcha-flavored food and drinks that I could remember having and I’m still on my search. Do you have any suggestions where I could find some more heavenly matcha treats? 🙂
