Matcha green tea is the whole tea leaf that’s been ground into a fine powder which dissolves in water. It’s a very powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger, and because you consume the whole leaf, it boasts 137 times the antioxidant power of a standard green tea bag. It boasts a whole range of health benefits, including skin health! It’s active ingredient, a polyphenol called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), has been shown to reduce the signs of aging by protecting your skin from the damaging effects of UV radiation, and ridding the body of harmful free radicals that breakdown collagen. It also boosts blood flow, giving you a natural, rosy glow! Lately I’ve been enjoying this Matcha Latte mix from Organic Traditions. It’s also delicious in a smoothie!
