This is really a simple drink, with only simple ingredients you can produce a delicious, nutritious drink. What we make here is culinary grade matcha, because there is also a type of ceremonial grade matcha. So, this type of matcha corresponds to its color, so you can recognize it from the type of color you see.

Types of Matcha

Matcha is Japanese green tea powder which consists of cerebral grade and culinary grade. To make matcha lemonade, you can easily use this matcha powder.

The best matcha between these two types is ceremonial grade matcha, this is high quality matcha powder which tastes slightly sweeter and green tea powder is made from young tea leaves. However, ceremonial grade matcha is sold at a more expensive price. There is price, there is quality.

If you use culinary matcha which tastes a bit bitter, you can use sweet lemonade to counteract the bitter taste of culinary matcha. Those are the two types of matcha powder that you can get on the market, and the best is the ceremonial grade type but it has a more expensive price.

Where can you buy Matcha?

One of many people’s favorite matcha is Adagio ceremonial grade matcha, made from Samidori grown in Uji, Japan. Many people are addicted to this matcha, the taste is smooth and not too vegetable in nature so it suits the tongue.

Sen Cha Naturals: This is a matcha that is suitable for baking. We usually add Sen Cha Naturals to smoothies and lattes, it’s cheaper than buying matcha green tea at Starbucks.

Pique SunGoddess: This is a very smooth, fresh and clean matcha. One of the most delicious types of matcha, this is an organic type of matcha and the taste is also better, different from other types.

Matcha Lemonade Benefits

Is the only delicious thing you get from this matcha? Of course, not only does it taste delicious, but its antioxidant content is good enough to fight oxidation, stress in the body, fight cancer and premature aging because it repairs cell damage.

Matcha lemonade is also useful for immunity, increases focus, and can hydrate the body. When combined in lemonade, matcha provides a delicious, refreshing taste. This is a great drink for hot weather and is great for optimal health.

Benefits of Matcha

The benefit of matcha is that it protects the body from free radicals which are dangerous to health. Matcha contains antioxidants called catechins, which protect against oxidative stress in the body so that it can protect the body from cell damage. The benefits of this antioxidant are reducing inflammation, good for brain function, reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as preventing diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Increases energy and focus. Matcha contains a unique combination of caffeine that can make a person focused and energized instantly. Matcha also contains the amino acid L-theamine. The combination of these compounds can provide benefits in the form of mental clarity, increasing energy and providing a feeling of calm.

The benefits of matcha are that it increases the body’s metabolism and burns fat. For this task, matcha contains the compound EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which has been proven to increase metabolism and burn body fat.

The benefits of matcha also support the body’s immune function. The polyphenol, catechin and antioxidant content is said to protect the body from bacteria, viruses and various dangerous pathogens.


Benefits of Lemonade

The benefits of lemonade also really support body health. When you combine lemonade with matcha drinks, you will get several benefits from lemonade, including:

High in vitamin C: Vitamin C is important for immunity, supports collagen production, and accelerates wound healing. Vitamin C is a form of antioxidant that is useful in protecting the body against oxidative stress and inflammation.

Good for hydrating the body: Drinking lemonade keeps the body hydrated especially during summers when the weather is very hot. Body hydration is quite important because it can optimize body temperature, maintain electrolyte balance, and support kidney function.

Helps digestion: One of the benefits of lemonade is that it is good for digestion, it contains citric acid. Citric acid can stimulate digestive acids, making it easier for the digestive system to digest the various foods that come in. In turn, it can prevent bloating and facilitate bowel movements.

Supports healthy skin: The antioxidant content in the form of vitamin C in lemonade can prevent damage to the skin due to UV. This nutrition also helps the production of collagen which can increase skin elasticity so that your skin remains firm and shining.
