Matcha is one of those things that has been around for centuries but has really picked up in Western Society over the last few years. As it's not a common part of the Western diet, however, you are forgiven if you don't know what it is or what its many benefits are. 

We like to say that one of the first steps in eating healthy is learning the true potential of your ingredients. So, if you've ever wondered what this green powder really is or how it can change your health for the better, you've come to the right place. 

First and foremost. What is matcha? 

Matcha is not your stock standard green tea. Let's get that out of the way. It's a form of green tea that is achieved in a slightly different way than drying leaves and pouring water over them. In fact, it is a powder made from finely ground dried tea leaves, which gives it a vibrant green colour.

The taste of matcha is usually described as bitter. But, we promise you that our Nutritional Matcha Latte is so naturally sweet, that you would be mistaken into thinking it had sugar in it.

Popular to contrary belief, traditional matcha is usually only served with hot water, too. However, its growing popularity has seen it blended with a range of different milk options and even honey, making it super delicious and filling.

What are the benefits of drinking matcha?

Matcha is one of those products that almost seems too good to be true, offering a range of proven health benefits that will have you feeling on top of the world. Drinking it multiple times a day, unlike coffee, can actually help you see improvements in your gut, mind and overall health. So, if you haven't started drinking matcha lattes yet, it may be time. 

Some of the benefits you will enjoy include:

Improved Brain Function 

Feeling a bit sluggish and down after a big day. Believe it or not, the best solution is not in drinking coffee, it's in drinking matcha! Matcha is proven to boost the brain's attentiveness, providing a mega boost to focus, attention and the ability to think critically. The L-theanine compounds in matcha also work to propel its caffeine quality. So, instead of caffeine crashes, you'll feel fuelled and on the ball for hours to come. 

Can help you control your weight 

Green tea and matcha are often found in weight loss supplements for their ability to reduce body mass, appetite and sugar cravings. Matcha is also low in calories, making it a great alternative to other hot drinks. Grabbing a naturally sweet Matcha Latte from Jomeis Fine Foods is a fantastic treat when you're looking for something delectable, but guilt-free.

It's antioxidant-rich 

There are so many toxins that seep into our bodies every day. This can come from air pollution, water pollution and even from eating too much fast food. Matcha, fortunately, is one of those powerful antioxidants that can help cleanse the bad stuff from the body, helping you to feel more energetic & healthy. By keeping toxins out of your body, you also reduce your risk of certain cancers and diseases. So, it's never too late to make matcha a regular part of your day. 

Matcha is fantastic for the skin 

Due to its antioxidising & anti-inflammatory qualities, matcha is great for reducing skin redness and alleviating the aggressiveness of skin conditions. It is a great natural remedy for acne and is useful in skin regeneration, particularly after injury or burns.
