At Bootea, we know good tea when we taste it. That's why we just had to introduce Matcha Tea into our collection of great-tasting detox products.
Matcha Tea is a unique type of green tea produced in Japan - and it's a little different from regular tea. For a start, it's stone-ground into a vibrant green powder rather than coming in a regular teabag - which can make it difficult to know how to get the best from your Matcha!
But the beauty of powdered tea means you can use in plenty of other ways - not just in your morning brew. Check out these five delicious ways you can use your Matcha Tea!
Matcha Chia Seed Pudding
The perfect way to start your day! Mix two cups of almond milk with 1/2 cup of chia seeds. Stir in half a teaspoon of Matcha and mix. Add maple syrup or honey and leave it to soak for three hours in the fridge. Then enjoy your delicious, nutritious pudding!
Chocolate Matcha Energy Balls
Enjoy Matcha on-the-go with these easy energy balls! Blitz 1/2 cup of pitted dates and 1/2 cup fo almonds in a food processor.
