Spring is coming – prepare yourself for a Matcha Detox
The powdered tea (Matcha) from the tea ceremony is not just delicious, but also has a high concentration of chlorophyll and catechins, which is a highly antioxidant poliphenol. These substances help the different organs to liberate themselves from toxic substances. Spring is the perfect time to help your body to get rid of the toxins, which have accumulated over the time.
- Put one or two spoons of Matcha in a Chawan (ceramic bowl, Muesli size)
- Pour water at 50-60°C onto Matcha and fill the Chawan one third full
- Beat with a Chasen (bamboo wisk) in circles until it foams on top
- Enjoy your Matcha
Did you know that Matcha is 10 times more antioxidant than green tea? For the same effect of one Matcha you have to drink 10 cups of tea, which already is rich in antioxidants and lots of vitamins and minerals.
Drinking green everyday, keeps the doctor away
Whilst tea is not a replacement for fruit and vegetables, studies have shown that drinking two to four cups of tea a day has approximately the same antioxidant “potency” as eating 6 apples! As well as contributing to fluid and antioxidant intake, drinking four cups of tea a day can provide certain vitamins and minerals, which are proven to promote health and well being. The most common vitamins and minerals found in tea are Vitamin C, B, E, calcium, zinc, potassium and manganese.
