Matcha green tea recipes

Matcha, a grassy green tea powder from Japan, is taking the culinary world by storm.

Matcha contains up to three times more catechins (an antioxidant) than ordinary brewed green tea. Some studies show matcha can reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, promote weight loss and strengthen your immune system.

Matcha has a smaller amount of caffeine compared to coffee or espresso — just enough to make you feel alert, not loopy and wired.
