Matcha is somewhat my current obsession! Or at least one of them! I used to read about all its benefits and I have to say I was fully convinced when I tried it! It had such an amazing effect on my energy levels and mood. Now, not a day passes by without something matcha infused!
A few words about matcha: it is made from tea leaves and is packed with antioxidants, boosts metabolism, calms the mind and relaxes the body, enhances mood and is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins.
