I met a friend of mine the other day at Sawada Coffee, a coffee shop on North Green Street. I was planning on having a Latte to boost my energy and enjoy while we talked.
Well, my friend ordered a matcha green tea. I had never heard of matcha before, so I asked her what it was.
Turns out, matcha is a green tea powder that has amazing health benefits and its caffeine is tempered and there is no crash or jitters.
I am always up for trying new things, so I ordered a military latte which id matcha latte with some expresso and chocolate.
All I can say is… WOW!
I felt so good the rest of the day. I seemed to have this clear focus that I had been lacking for so long.
When I got home that night, I googled matcha and found all kinds of awesome information about this amazing superfood. I found the best website for clear concise matcha information was matchaconnection.com. They have awesome information on the best matcha brands and where to buy it as well as information on the health benefits of matcha and more. Highly recommend it!
So now I not only go to the coffee shop for matcha latte, but I also make matcha green tea at home. I just can’t get enough of the stuff! I love the way it makes me feel,so energized and clear headed.
Yes, I am obsessed!
I used to start my day with a cup of coffee and by noon I was starting to drag and feel tired, but since I have switched to matcha, I feel focused and energized all day long
I’ve already turned a bunch of my friends on to matcha and I even got my mom hooked!
The next time you are out at a coffee shop in Chicago and you see matcha on the menu, do yourself a favor and try it, but I am warning you, you may like it… A lot!
