How to make Matcha -


1. Prepare tea bowl by warming with boiled water.
2. Prepare your Matcha whisk by soaking the tip in the hot water for about 10 seconds.
3. Pour the water out and dry the bowl with a towel.
4. Using your matcha scoop or teaspoon, add 2 scoops of Matcha to each bowl.
5. Pour 1/3 of a cup of your hot water into each bowl.
6. In a slow “m” motion, submerge any loose bits of Matcha that may be floating on the surface of the tea.
7. Whisk the tea more briskly in a back and forth motion until the surface of the Matcha becomes frothy.
8. Consume immediately. In Japan, it is customary to drink the entire bowl in 3 quick slurps.



MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING CANCER CENTER SAYS…

Green tea contains substances called polyphenols, which scientists think contribute to its anticancer activity. Laboratory studies of one polyphenol, catechin epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), show that it may interfere with several processes involved in cell replication, causing tumor cell death. It also might slow the formation of blood vessels around tumors.

 

Epigallocatechin (ECG), another polyphenol, stops leukemic cells from multiplying in laboratory studies. As an antioxidant, green tea may repair cell damage, but whether it can prevent cancer is uncertain. It is also unknown how it might help protect the heart, but it reduces LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and increases HDL (“good”) cholesterol.

 

Tannins present in green tea generally have antibacterial properties.
