Matcha is basically powdered green tea. It's rich in antioxidants that protect your cells and filled with bio-active compounds that can help reduce inflammation (and may even prevent some diseases!).

Some studies have shown Matcha can help to lower your metabolism, prevent cancer, and protect from heart disease.

Store them in the freezer, and you can just grab one for a quick bite sized treat.
