Easy Matcha Latte Made With JOI Almond Nutbase is an Antioxidant Powerhouse

Pop quiz: what’s got as much 137 times the antioxidant content of green tea and makes one delicious JOI almond milk latte?

The answer is matcha, and it’s health benefits don’t stop there. Think of matcha as green tea on steroids in powdered form. Derived from the same Camellia sinensis plant but grown differently, matcha offers all the same inflammation-fighting, concentration-boosting, heart-and-liver-protecting benefits as standard green tea, and then it ups the ante.

So, what’s behind the supercharged healthful punch? Camellia sinensis plants destined to become matcha are covered from direct sunlight 20-30 days before harvest, which increases chlorophyll production and amino acid content. Then, after the tea leaves are harvested, they are ground up into a fine powder, which means that finished-product matcha contains the nutrients from the entire tea leaf. This equates to higher caffeine and antioxidant content than you’ll find within green tea—and a stronger flavor too. Basically, it makes a good thing great.

Matcha is also really tasty as a latte. Sure, you can blend up matcha powder with water, but why would you when you can pair it with the additional health benefits and creamy goodness of JOI 100% almond nutbase instead?
