I’ve teamed up with Encha Organic Matcha to drop some serious Matcha knowledge on you that’s going change your life…
As you can see from the title of this post, we’re going to be talking about Encha’s, MATCHA GREEN TEA. Not the tasteless green stuff you order from Starbucks to make yourself feel better.
No! This is the real deal.
What is Matcha Green tea?
Matcha is a stone-ground powdered green tea, which originated from traditional Japanese culture.
Introduced by 12th-century Zen priest Eisai, he describes it as “the ultimate mental and medical remedy and has the ability to make one’s life more full and complete”!
Told you this post is going to change your life!
Now, you may be thinking, “Sul, that sounds great but, c’mon the Japanese love their mystical myths”. I won’t argue with you on that one, after all, they do have a tea ceremony (arguably a bit much).
But, why are we seeing so many celebrities, athletes, bloggers and doctors consuming this miracle elixir?
Here are 5 reasons why
1. Increases your energy levels & endurance
Let’s be honest, we could all do with a little more energy throughout the day.
Matcha contains a combination of caffeine and mentally calming theanine, giving you an energy boost that can last up to 6 hours, without the usual side-effects of coffee.
More energy throughout the day means more chances of smashing your daily/weekly/monthly check-lists.
2. Helps you burn fat and train harder
Probably, the most popular reason men and women drink Matcha tea. It’s been shown to increase metabolism and help burn fat 4x faster than average (especially around your abdominal area). Whilst the caffeine helps to enhance performance.
Lads, if you want to look leaner and get the Baywatch abs you need to burn that unwanted fat! Down a cup of Matcha tea a day and try out my top 5 ab exercises to get the results you want.
3. It makes you smarter with Zenergy
The caffeine found in matcha tea acts as a stimulant. However, it contains less than coffee, but enough to produce the same response without the “jittery” effects.
The amino acid L-theanine is also found in Encha tea and helps induce the alpha brainwave which is associated with mental focus.
4. It’s high in antioxidant and nutrients
One of the key health benefits to drinking matcha green tea is the high levels of antioxidants called polyphenols.
This helps to reduce the risk of certain cancers (Breast, Prostate, and Colorectal), gives you younger-looking skin, and protects your cells from damage.
These are aspects more men should be aware of, I always start my day with a cup of Matcha green tea.
5. Matcha green tea, taste good
Unlike the green tea you get in your local café, Encha Organic, Matcha tea actually has a nice smooth flavour to it. The recommended way to prepare it is by using a Matcha bowl, bamboo spoon (Chashaku) and a bamboo whisk (Chasen). That’s the Japanese way!
There you have it! Those are the 5 benefits I have found from drinking Matcha green tea from Encha Organic Matcha. I normally have 2 cups a day, one in the morning and one just after lunch.
