There’s lotsa matcha floating around in the air and it’s no wonder why. The word “matcha” means powdered tea, and the powder is actually finely ground tea leaves, so when you drink matcha you’re drinking the leaves rather than letting them steep in hot water and tossing them away. The Japanese tea has an incredible amount of antioxidants, which means it’s great for focusing your mind and helping your body fight off inflammation, tissue damage, and high cholesterol (just a few of the many benefits). From soft-serve ice cream to muffins, these are just some of the things you can infuse with the powerhouse powder.
These muffins are a great way to get your matcha dose for breakfast if you’re not into the liquid version.
