What is Matcha?

Matcha is a unique Japanese green tea made from dried tea leaves. Matcha, when translated, means “powdered tea”, which is precisely what it is. Green tea becomes matcha when you use the whole leaf of the tea leaves, which will be made into powder, whereas you, as the consumer, can then use that matcha powder, dissolve it in hot water and usually whisk it with a bamboo brush until it froths up. Matcha has a bitter taste and a vibrant green colour from the leaves’ high chlorophyll levels. It has been used for centuries in Japan and has taken over the world due to its health benefits.

What does Matcha taste like?

If you don’t particularly like matcha but would still like to incorporate it into your diet, these banana matcha pancakes will help you with that! Matcha does have a very distinct taste, and not everyone is a fan. But when matcha is paired with sweetness (such as these bananas), the flavour from matcha will be very mild. I always love to pair up my matcha recipes with a sweet ingredient because it makes them taste incredibly yummy.

So if you’ve never had matcha before or don’t happen to be a fan, I think you’ll feel differently once you’ve given these pancakes a go.

Is Matcha healthy for you?

Short answer: Yes!

Long answer: Matcha green tea differs from regular brewed green tea. Matcha green tea is made by using up the whole leaf. Because of that, it holds the most antioxidants (400% more antioxidants than black and green tea), so this is an ingredient you want to incorporate into your diet.

Many people have also found that switching from coffee to matcha makes them feel energised (matcha contains caffeine, but not as high as coffee), which helps you stay alert without the jitters of the afternoon crash most of us experience. This is because matcha contains L-Theanine, which has a relaxing and calming effect on our bodies.

There are numerous amount of other benefits matcha holds. Matcha is anti-inflammatory, boosts brain focus and sharpness, can help you lose weight, is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, increases the immune system, lowers stress, improves skin health, has powerful detoxing abilities, and many more benefits.
