By now both the nutrients and the antioxidant properties of sesame are more or less known and we have all started to include tahini more and more in our daily diet. However, the question that arises is what happens if you combine tahini with matcha tea? Could the combination of those super healthy foods be also really tasteful?
We went there and the result is oh-so-delicious!
For more than 100 years, eastern civilizations have been using matcha tea as a health elixir but also as part of their meditation practice. Matcha tea is richer in antioxidants compared to other types of green tea as well as to any other fruit or vegetable in the world. It contains 137 times more antioxidants compared to regular tea and 5 times more than any other superfood. It also contains 130 times more calcium and 172 times more protein than any other tea variety.
Studies have shown that matcha can reduce the risk of liver diseases.
Matcha consumption also improves concentration, memory and reflexes. Its caffeine and L-Theanine content is beneficial to various brain functions. Much like green tea, matcha lowers the LDL “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides levels, helping in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Matcha can also boost your metabolism and increase calorie burning, resulting in weight loss. It also helps in body detoxing since it is rich in chlorophyll.
