Before I moved to Japan, I was never really a huge fan of matcha. For me personally it was more of an acquired taste, sort of like kimchi. Now, I can't stay away from it...
Matcha tea, matcha donuts, matcha ice cream, matcha waffles, matcha cake, matcha Pocky, matcha Kit-Kats-
I can't get enough!
I don't know why it's so good, it just is.
Before you judge my crazy matcha obsession, let me just tell you why it's so good for you (the actual tea anyways, not necessarily all of the sweets lol).
1.) It's full of anti-oxidants which help boost the immune system.
2.) It's a great way to detox your body.
3.) Boosts your metabolism and helps burn unwanted fat.
4.) Boosts energy levels without the negative side effects.
5.) Boosts memory and concentration, making you more clear-headed.
6.) It's got calming effects for both mind and body.
7.) Improves cholesterol.
8.) Protects you from infections and other diseases.
9.) It's great to help fight aging.
10.) Helps to prevent tooth decay.
