Mix this powder into water or milk for a satisfying hot or iced latte with a whole host of health benefits. It’s based on coveted “ceremonial grade” matcha – the finest available type of this shade grown powdered green tea from Japan’s mountainous Kagoshima Prefecture. This matcha is an excellent source of the amino acid L-theanine, which is known to promote a calm, centred mental state ideal for concentration and productivity.
Each serve also contains 1500mg of dual-extracted lion’s mane mushroom powder equivalent to 15 grams of raw mushrooms. The lion’s mane mushroom has been used therapeutically across Asia and is particularly valued in traditional Chinese medicine as a nootropic agent. It’s sometimes called “the smart mushroom” and is believed to improve concentration, cognitive function and memory. Modern research has revealed that lion’s mane is a superfood rich in amino acids, antioxidants, β-glucan polysaccharides, fatty acids, minerals, nerve growth factor and polypeptides. Consuming lion’s mane also has demonstrable benefits for digestion, energy and stress levels, and the nervous and immune systems.
The nutritious matcha & mushroom combo is complemented by peppermint which adds delicious flavour, a stimulating scent, and the herb’s famed digestive benefits to the drink. It’s plenty tasty and nourishing by itself, but feel free to add some sweetener, ghee or coconut oil for a little upgrade – and also try mixing the powder into your baked goods to give them a little upgrade!
