If you have yet to try matcha, you’re missing out. And if you’re already a big green tea drinker and still haven’t poured yourself a cup of matcha, then you’re really missing out. We’re here to break down the antioxidant-rich beverage.
How To Use Matcha
First things first, let’s explain what matcha is. Matcha is an antioxidant-rich powder of finely-ground green tea leaves. It contains L-theanine, an amino acid that provides an “alert calm” in matcha drinkers, rather than a “jolt,” which is a side effect of other morning beverages. Matcha is naturally caffeinated, but because of its addition of L-theanine, matcha drinkers don’t experience a “crash” hours after drinking it.
Vital Proteins® Matcha Collagen combines the benefits of matcha green tea, which we source from Japan, with the health and beauty benefits of our hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides. Our Collagen Peptides is sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hide, and helps to support healthy hair, skin, nails and joints.** This powerhouse duo — our Matcha Collagen! — is a must-have for any beauty or wellness seeker. We also offer a peach flavor if you’re looking to try something new.
So, how to take matcha? It’s easy. Beginners mix 1-2 scoops (our recommended serving size) into hot water. But if you’re looking to branch out, you’re in luck. Adding in our Matcha Collagen to your favorite desserts or breakfast recipes has always been a fan-favorite way to use this product.
