Matcha Green Tea! I am sure you have heard about it before. Maybe you've tried it. Maybe not! I was first introduced to Matcha Green Tea years ago when it become my go to drink at Starbucks. The milky Green goodness always gave me a mid-day pick me up that kept me level headed and productive. As I got older, I began consciously avoiding franchises and drive-thrus for eating and drinking. I also became more aware of what I put in and on my body.
One awareness I have had for a long time but never did anything about was my coffee consumption. Up to four cups before noon with another one or two after lunch, I knew I needed to cut my habit but never made the commitment.
i recently tried acupuncture for the first time (post to come next week!). During my consultation my practitioner asked if I have ever tried chlorophyll in my diet for my excessive sweating. Since I had not, I was eager to try her suggestion. She also told me that after acupuncture the body is drawn to the things the body needs most.
Straight from my first appointment I went to the health food store to get chlorophyll. I also decided to pick up some Matcha Green Tea to try and make a replica of my favorite Starbucks drink!
As soon as I got home I started to read the health benefits of Matcha Green Tea. Up there with its intense antioxidant powers is its high chlorophyll content! I should have known considering its Green coloring and Earthy taste. Before my online investigation I had no idea that the Matcha Green Tea I was drawn to had the exact nutrients I was recommended.
The next morning I skipped the coffee and made my first homemade Matcha Green Tea Latte! After a few days of trial and error I think I have the recipe to my liking, reducing bitterness by controlling water temperature.
Here re is a quick video of me making a Matcha Green Tea Latte while on a weekend get away at the Appalachian Hotel in Vernon, NJ.
The recipe is so easy you can make it on the go or on vacation!

As someone who promotes compassion in every aspect of life, I suggest Karen Armstrong's Ted Talks.
"Now, pride of place in this practice is given to compassion. And it is an arresting fact that right across the board, in every single one of the major world faiths, compassion -- the ability to feel with the other in the way we've been thinking about this evening -- is not only the test of any true religiosity, it is also what will bring us into the presence of what Jews, Christians and Muslims call "God" or the "Divine." It is compassion, says the Buddha, which brings you to Nirvana. Why? Because in compassion, when we feel with the other, we dethrone ourselves from the center of our world and we put another person there. And once we get rid of ego, then we're ready to see the Divine."
