There’s been lots of buzz lately about matcha tea. If you want to wean yourself off coffee, matcha makes a great alternative.
It has one fifth the caffeine of your cappuccino. It provides sustainable energy, without the spike and later crash that coffee brings, with three times the antioxidants of regular green tea. It contains high levels of chlorophyll. And its polyphenols, called catechins, have possible cancer-preventive properties.
Talk up these details of matcha tea to your guests as you serve them this delicious raw cake at a holiday gathering—say, Mother’s Day. They’ll feel great after a piece of this cake and next time will ask for more!
