Some of your favorites have gone green—and it’s not food dye. Though, jealousy might have something to do with these once sharing gets involved. While derived from nutrient L-theanine and an excellent substitute for coffee for lack of jitters, matcha is not confined to being categorized as a replacement.

The Power of Matcha

This powerhouse powder is adaptive and can be used in everyday recipe variations for an extra boost of energy. Besides being delicious, the L-theanine content in matcha promotes higher brain wave frequency. It’s also a reliable aid for breaking down stored fat, stabilizing blood sugar levels, and assisting in immune function.

For the reasons to love matcha that don’t speak for themselves, take a quick peek at these recipes, we know you’ll love.
