Energy, weight loss and detox in a box

Energy, weight loss and detox in a box

If the new organic matcha tea from teapigs does what it says on the label, then farewell seasonal sluggishness, begone expanding girth and hello eternal youth – or maybe not. Matcha can certainly help with the above because, according to teapigs, this superhero amongst teas offers substantially higher nutritional values than other green teas, which have long been one of the beverages of choice for the health conscious.

Matcha is unique in that it is a shade-grown green tree that, when picked, is ground to a fine powder enabling it to be totally ingested into your body, unlike a regular green tea infusion where the nutritious leaves are discarded – 1g of teapigs matcha is equivalent to 15 cups of regular green tea.

According to teapigs, not only does matcha boost your metabolism by about 30-40%, it also releases energy, giving you a boost lasting three to six hours. What’s more, matcha contains high levels of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and nutrients.

Until now the modest matcha has been kept under wraps and been enjoyed almost exclusively by Buddhist monks and Japanese royalty for over 900 years. Now however, the word is out and matcha is going down a storm with a considerably larger demographic.
