Matcha, a love-hate relationship
Most people already knew what is matcha, yes matcha is a powdered tea made from finely ground green tea leaves. Matcha originally come from Japan. Matcha contains a lot of benefits, rich in the rare amino acid, L-Theanine, which promotes a state of relaxation and well-being; it creates alpha waves in the brain which leads to a state of calm alertness. That is why matcha is often connected with yoga, calmness, and meditation. Also, matcha has plenty of benefits such as;
- Clear, focused energy, minus the jitters some people get with coffee or energy drinks.
- Not to mention, matcha is high in antioxidants, which help support your overall health, especially your immune response.
- Better memory and concentration
- Fewer tummy troubles
- Detox! Matcha contains chlorophyll and can help remove toxins and heavy metals from your body.
Matcha and Strawberry
So, why would I say the love-hate relationship with matcha? well, the reason is, once you like the taste of matcha, you will love matcha, and on the other side if you hate the bitterness of matcha, most likely you hate matcha.
That is to say, It is so hard to make matcha love in between since Matcha has a strong and unique taste.
I would say, If you like the taste of match or want to know more to explore the taste, then come with me, today we will make a homemade café drink which is a strawberry matcha latte. Surprisingly, when combined it makes a very subtle and balanced taste. The refreshing and healthy beverage come from the sweet and tangy flavor of strawberries with the earthy and slightly bitter taste of matcha. It’s a perfect drink for any time of the day, whether you need a morning pick-me-up or an afternoon treat.
Additionally, the vibrant and cheerful red color of strawberries pairs well with the vivid green color of matcha, making it a visually tempting and eyegasm experience.
