Try Matcha Tea in Dubai because it is the highest quality powdered green tea and is a natural powerhouse.
Matcha Tea is the emerging food trend for 2015 and is on our radar for all the right reasons. A high-grade green tea that is a Superfood, each leaf is steamed then stemmed and de-vined before it is finally stone-ground into fine powder. It retains its color and antioxidant properties because it is stored away from light and oxygen. To put it simple, one cup of Matcha Green Tea is equivalent to 10 glasses of regular green tea in terms of the nutritional value and health benefits.
Originating from the Far East, Matcha Tea has been around the region for over a 1000 years and has always been a feature in the traditional Chinese and Japanese tea ceremonies. In fact the Samurai warriors in Japan also drank it for energy and the Monks drank it to improve concentration (we’ll drink to that!).
You can drink Matcha Tea hot or cold and make it in just water or then add a dash of milk. Today, Matcha Tea is also being added to smoothies for that extra caffeine kick (without the jitters of coffee).
