Purpose

The purpose of this recipe is to incorporate the highly beneficial properties of matcha green tea, and give it a delicious twist so that you can’t help but come back for more. With 10x more nutrition than brewed green tea, 1000% higher in antioxidants than blueberries, and well known to boost mood, enhance concentration, and improve cognitive function, this is a green tea you want in your corner!

It could even replace your coffee.
