Ever went to a smoothie shop and stared up at the menu only to find these bizarre words that have absolutely no meaning to you? Most likely one of those strange words is the word Matcha. Matcha is a form of Japanese green tea that has been grounded down into a bright green powder. Although it can be prepared as a traditional tea, it is most commonly found as an added ingredient, to things like smoothies, yogurt and even desserts.
Matcha is definitely not a tea for everyone. Of course I'm a big fan but it has what you would call an acquired taste. Much like regular green tea, Matcha has a pure almost bitter taste to it that needs some time to get use to. But once you get past it's unique taste the benefits are out of this world.
