Come to The Legal Café for a Flavorful and Healthy Brew
If you’re looking for a beverage that is both delicious and healthy, the new strawberry cold foam matcha at The Legal Café may be just the ticket. In a nutshell, it’s a type of green tea with a light, frothy, fruity topping. Enjoy it hot or cold.
What Is Matcha?
Match is a form of green tea that, until recently, has only been available in health food stores and coffee shops. Matcha comes from the Camellia sinensis plant, the same type of plant that produces other green tea, but unlike those other teas, it’s grown in the shade. As a result, matcha tea leaves typically have a darker green color and contain a greater concentration of amino acids.
Green tea is brewed using leaves, producing a light, almost grassy flavor. Matcha, on the other hand, is made by grinding or pulverizing the tea leaves, a process that produces a fine powder with a stronger concentration of antioxidants and nutrients.
What Are the Health Benefits of Matcha?
Research shows that matcha can improve your health in a number of ways:
- Matcha contains a healthy dose of catechin, a plant compound that serves as a natural antioxidant—Antioxidants are proven to counteract the effects of free radicals in your body. (Free radicals can lead to cell damage and chronic illness.) Tea made from matcha leaves typically contains about three times as much catechin as other green teas.
- Matcha can enhance your brain power—Studies consistently show that people who regularly consume matcha tea have better attention span, quicker reaction time, and superior memory retention.
- Matcha may lower your risk of certain cancers—Matcha contains a catechin known as EGCG, which has shown significant cancer-fighting properties in clinical studies.
- Matcha can improve liver function—Scientists have long known that green teas can reduce the risk of liver disease.
- Matcha may help you lose weight—Studies consistently show that green teas, such as matcha, can help reduce body mass.
What Is Cold Foam?
Cold foam is a milk-based product, typically created by aerating the milk in a special frothing device. Cold foam can, however, also be produced with a blender, a French press, or even by vigorously shaking a container of milk.
