With 137 times more antioxidant power than the conventional cup of green tea, Matcha green tea kicks tea butt. You would need 10 cups of normal green tea to equal the strength of 1 cup of Matcha. POW! Resulting in 25% more fat burn throughout the day, Matcha increases thermogenesis (calorie burning) from 8%-10% to 35%-43% of your daily expenditure. Matcha achieves all this simply because the tea dissolves the entire leaf into your cup rather than the steeped cup of tea where you would in turn discard the remaining leaves. Well? There's one thing left to do. Make yummy recipies! Cheers!
