My friend, Mira, and I stop by one of our favorite a coffee shops at k-town after the dinner. We always order Green Tea (Matcha) Latte. It is very soft and mild taste. Also it makes me feel I am getting healthy drink. I have made cold green tea for daily when I head to work. Here is some information for the Matcha.
Fresh tea leaf comes unusually rich in powerful antioxidants called polyphenols which may constitute up to 30% of the dry leaf weight. So, when you drink a cup of tea, you’re basically drinking a solution of tea polyphenols. In fresh, unfermented tea leaves, polyphenols exist as a series of chemicals called catechins.
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) happens to be the most powerful catechin found in tea. In fact, one study indicates that EGCG is 25-100 times more potent than antioxidant vitamins C and E. This study also reported that just one cup of green tea has antioxidant effects greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots, or strawberries.
