Matcha latte is a tasty beverage made from powdered green tea leaves. Matcha powder can be found in the tea section at your health food store, and while it is slightly more expensive than other types of tea, you’ll want to keep it on hand! Matcha latte may help boost your focus, concentration, and thinking abilities. A great source of polyphenols, green tea may also help prevent several types of cancer.
Tip: Drinking green tea on a regular basis may help manage type 2 diabetes.
