We’ve all been there — the afternoon slump. At a certain point mid-day, there just doesn’t seem to be enough caffeine in the world to power through until bedtime. Avid coffee drinkers may even experience this slump earlier in the day when their cup of joe wears off abruptly.
If you want to avoid that coffee crash, give matcha a try. If you’re new to the world of matcha, Time defines it as “a type of green tea made by taking young tea leaves and grinding them into a bright green powder.” You’ve most likely spotted the tea in bright green drinks on your Instagram feed.
Green tea doesn’t just taste great. It’s also good for your body thanks to all of its antioxidants and chlorophyll. It has even been proven to improve your health by working to “prevent heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer.”
Want to get in on the green stuff right now? Bring home a few items from MatchaBar. Founded by brothers Max and Graham Fortgang in Brooklyn in 2014, the duo is committed to sharing their love for the tea. Together with family farms in Kagoshima, Japan, they created their own ceremonial grade matcha and amassed a pretty sizable fan base. Billie Eilish is even a fan!
