Matcha

More and more people are nowadays consuming matcha for both its herbal flavor and health benefits.

Matcha became known in the 11th century when Buddhist monks started using it in order to stay awake throughout the night. In America, it was actress Gwyneth Paltrow who advertised its miraculous effects. In regards to its origins, the tea comes from the camellia sinensis plant, cultivated for the first time in China. While the highest quality matcha, called ceremonial grade, was once reserved for royalty, everyday matcha, also known as culinary grade, is currently used for cooking.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
