Lemon & Orange Matcha by the Japanese Green Tea Co. both come sweetened with sugar. There is no need to add honey to the final steep. The matcha is subtle, I wouldn’t say it’s the most potent matcha that I have ever tasted, which makes it less of a novelty to sip; however, the pre-sweetened citrus flavors make it a perfect tea to quickly steep for a chilled beverage or cocktail.
THE EFFECT/HEALTH BENEFITS
HEALTH BENEFITS OF MATCHA
Metabolism Boost | Studies have shown that regular matcha drinkers have 35-40% higher metabolic rates than those who don’t drink matcha.
No Halitosis | Matcha contains chlorophyll, a chemical found in plants known to detoxify your liver, blood and digestive tracts. A clean gut also eliminates bad breath and body odor.
Stabilize Blood Sugar | Dietary fiber found in matcha green tea can help prevent insulin spikes. Matcha can also slow down the development of type 1 diabetes and regulate glucose levels of diabetics.
Lower Blood Pressure | Catechins, found in matcha, inhibit angiotensin, which allows for less contraction of blood vessels and lower blood pressure. *Note: adding milk inhibits the effect of catechins.
