Matcha coconut milk latte stands out among teas because it comes from plants of the best quality and also its elaboration process is extremely careful to preserve its properties intact.
Matcha tea, when ground and dried is a concentrated food, very rich in catechins (powerful antiangiogenic molecules and therefore, anticancer) that in this recipe we dilute in coconut milk.
The Matcha catechins, restrain the action of free radicals, so it limits the aging process and many diseases.
It is loaded with flavonoids, some very beneficial vegetable that makes it a potent antioxidant.
Although we said that matcha tea is energized, it also has soothing properties, improves mood, and helps in concentration thanks to L-theanine, an amino acid that promotes relaxation and well-being.
