We want to make sure that our D’Juicy Boutique has a large variety of products that will make you feel good. This is why we have been expanding our selection of products massively. It is important to us that we keep you informed about why we chose the products we offer. One of our newest additions to our selection in D’Juicy Boutique is Matcha Green Tea Powder from Mattisson matcha. We also prepare delicious Matcha Lattes upstairs in the bar.
The reason we chose to offer Matcha in the D’Juice House is that not only is it delicious, but it has many fantastic health benefits as well. Matcha is rich in Antioxidants, which contribute skin health benefits as well as immune system support to your body. There are different types of antioxidants. Catechins are amongst the most powerful and beneficial antioxidants there are, and Matcha Green Tea is packed with these.
What makes this preparation of Green Tea so special is that the entire leaf is ingested, which gives you much more nutrition than regularly brewed Green Tea. Another reason why we chose to offer Matcha, is that it creates a feeling of relaxation. Matcha contains certain amino acids that cause your body to relax, without feeling drowsiness due to the caffeine that Matcha contains.
These same amino acids also cause your body to produce dopamine and serotonin, which are “happy hormones” that improve your mood, help you concentrate and can even improve your memory in the long term.
Matcha can give you energy for up to 6 hours, and is, therefore, a great substitute for coffee, as side-effects such as hypertension and the well-known “coffee-comedown” are not found with drinking Matcha.
Additionally, Matcha is also known to improve your metabolism, fortify your immune system and it can even help balance cholesterol levels in your blood.
Last but not least, Matcha is probably best known for its delicious flavour. It has a sweet, aromatic vegetal flavour that lingers in your mouth after consumption and gives you a comforting feeling. Its bright green colour makes it not only a feast for your taste buds but also a feast for your eyes.
We hope you learned a little bit more about the benefits of Matcha, and we are looking forward for you to try a delicious Matcha Latte for yourself, and see if this a feel-good product that you would like to incorporate into your life.
