Matcha Tea – nature’s work out and recovery drink

matcha tea nature's work and out and recovery drink

Drinking tea and October go together like best friends…Autumn tea blends are the fun, the feel, and the taste of Fall.  But not all teas are consumed for the same reasons, right? Fall is also the best time to learn something new! Searching out the best work out and recovery drink is now trending and so is matcha.

Purists of all kinds – work out, health and tea are on the same hunt for all natural, organic and premium.  Nature providing to nature what our bodies need.

Here at Anna Marie’s Teas we see how these connect.  In our own research we stumbled across a fantastic article outlining the The 8 Wonders of Matcha Green Tea.  The article was written by a contributing writer at bodybuilding.com.  The article is spot on with the super facts about matcha but not written by a tea person or a tea company.   The author is 100% about health, working out and what matcha provides for the body. Jam packed with every reason your health and work out needs matcha.  Here are the highlights:

  1. Cancer Preventer
  2. Anti-ager
  3. Lowers “LDL” bad cholesterol
  4. Weight Loss
  5. Detoxifier
  6. Mind Improver
  7. Fiber
  8. ENERGYMatcha Tea Blender Bottle

Knowing and understanding matcha is a big deal.  Our matcha is natural, organic, and premium.  Anna Marie’s Teas next Matcha Workshop is scheduled for October 15.  Blending demonstrations, sampling matcha and recipes.  Plenty of time for Q&A.   Sign up for the Matcha Tea Workshop and receive 10% off all matcha tea and our new Blender Bottle!  

Matcha tea is a whole food context. Ingesting the whole tea leaf is what makes this a super food and the highest level of antioxidants to eat or drink.  Regularly using matcha will reduce inflammation.  Matcha tea provides a  natural energy boost as well as a completely natural work out recovery drink.

Along with caffeine, matcha also contains L-theanine which counterbalances the “jittery” effects some experience with consuming caffeine. Matcha green tea promotes calm focus and clarity of mind without producing nervous energy.
