Matcha is a finely ground powdered form of green tea that is packed with more antioxidants than steeped green tea. Those antioxidants, also known as polyphenols, are anti-aging and have been shown to protect against chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, and they may even boost metabolism!Matcha has half of the caffeine found in a cup of coffee and contains the amino acid L-Theanine to help balance out the jitteriness caffeine typically causes. 

Swap out your morning cup of joe for a matcha green tea latte.

Matcha Green Tea Latte, 1 serving
1 Lipton® Magnificent Matcha Green Tea with Pure Matcha Tea bag
1 cup milk of choice, frothed
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. agave nectar

Add boiling water to tea bag and brew for two minutes. Add milk, vanilla and agave.

To frothed milk, pour milk into a small microwavable jar with lid. Screw on the lid and shake vigorously until milk has frothed and doubled in size, about 60 seconds. Take off the lid and microwave for 30 seconds. Pour the warmed milk into your tea; as the froth begins to pour out of the jar you can create designs that will hold on the top of your latte.

Be Well,

Kristin
