Nowadays, you can find just about any dessert or drink in matcha tea flavour. But what is the best way to drink matcha green tea to benefit weight loss?
Growing up I had the good fortune of drinking matcha green tea long before it became a health trend. My father practices the art of Japanese Tea Ceremony and I fondly remember going to events with my dad where he would perform the tea ceremony in front of an audience. I have to admit, I've become a bit of a matcha tea snob due to my upbringing, because I like to appreciate its full flavour in the original form, no sugar or cream added.
Matcha tea is sold in a powdered form in small batches, usually in a metal tin. I always buy organic brands to avoid ingesting the pesticides sprayed on tea leaves. There's a bit of a trick to making it smooth and not lumpy. If you've never made matcha tea before, check out this "how-to" video:
