The drink that conquered the whole world is very healthy – iDNES – Search

This drink is a storehouse of nutrients. In addition to vitamins A, C, E, it contains minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc and potassium. Important elements for the body that have an antioxidant effect – flavonoids and polyphenols – are also present here. They help protect cells from free radicals and boost immunity. A clarification: the amount of the drink, and today we are talking about the popular matcha, it is advisable to limit it to two cups a day. And you should not drink after 16 hours – it has a tonic effect. By drinking this jade drink, we consume 10 times more tea caffeine than if we drink regular black tea.

“A comparison of coffee with matcha showed that while the caffeine contained in coffee is released into the body almost immediately, the release of caffeine in tea occurs gradually, up to 4-6 hours,” writes the Czech edition iDNES.cz.

It’s about the party. It is created like this: green tea leaves are ground into powder. And when diluted with water, you get a tasty and healthy drink. It differs from other types of green tea in taste – slightly sweet and oily, and a high caffeine content and finesse. Why? About three weeks before the harvest, the young tea shoots are covered with dense canopies, depriving them of almost 90% of sunlight. This contributes to the intensive production of chlorophyll, which increases the content of useful amino acids in the final product.

The drink has come to us since ancient times, according to one source, from Japan, where aristocrats enjoyed it 800 years ago. According to others, even before our era, matcha was popular among Chinese monks, who ground the tea leaves in mortars, making a drink that looked like broth. The drink promotes fat burning and improves metabolism and also removes toxins and heavy metals from the body. The main thing is not to exceed the dose.
