Matcha powder is green tea in a dry powder form which is loaded with additional benefits besides being a powerful antioxidant. It also boosts metabolism and burns calories, provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium. I’ve read up on it on this article and were quite surprised myself. Let’s add some to other recipes! You can find matcha power mostly at your local Asian supermarket.
