This morning a friend of mine was asking about my motivational New View of Healthy Eating Card Deck. I let her know that the intention of the deck is to motivate us to take action on our eating, cooking, and self-care. It’s been awhile since I personally used my deck, so I intuitively choose a card for today. This “Drink Matcha Green Tea Today” is the inspiration for today’s blog.

I’ve been drinking matcha tea since 2004. I was just beginning to work in marketing and branding with Dr. Andrew Weil’s organization and learned about matcha and starting drinking it. Honestly, at first matcha was a little bitter for me and it took some time to become accustomed to drinking it. Now, I love matcha and drink it almost every day and enjoy the mindful process of preparing and drinking the tea.

Excerpt from “A New View of Healthy Eating”

Matcha: Tea of the Japanese tea ceremony

  • High quality Japanese green tea is covered before picking to accentuate its vibrant green color and to increase amino acids, as well as vitamins A and C.
  • The tea leaves are stone-ground, so we actually eat tea leaves when we drink matcha tea and receive the full benefits of green tea.
  • Intense grassy, green taste.
