What is Matcha?
Japanese Matcha tea is a fine powder made from green tea leaves. Matcha is made from the tea plant Camellia sinensis. Tea cultivated specifically for Matcha is grown in two Japanese regions: Uji in Kyoto and Nishio. Matcha comes from a class of plant compounds in tea with the health benefits of natural antioxidants. Antioxidants help stabilize harmful free radicals, which are compounds that can damage cells and cause chronic disease. We generally see Matcha Green Tea, or High grade Matcha powder. It is highly caffeinated and should not be mixed with milk, as milk decreases the absorption of nutrients. Matcha has a vibrant and earthy flavor.
What is a Matcha Mule?
A Matcha Mule is a refreshing cocktail of vodka, and matcha, ginger beer, lime juice, and mint leaves garnish. This green tea cocktail is an interesting and fun twist on a classic Vodka Mule. Vibrant color – Refreshing and delicious!
