Dr Oz: What’s The Deal With Matcha?
Have you heard about the latest craze taking over social media and turning everything green? These days, everyone is all about matcha green tea, which is why Dr Oz wanted to get to the bottom of everything there is to know about the new food trend. Believe it or not, matcha literally means powdered tea. Nutritionist Maya Feller explained that during the growing process, the tea leaves are covered with a shade blanket, then hand-picked and steamed to stop the fermentation process. It’s then put into cold storage and dried, before being ground into a fine powder. Matcha is essentially the entire green tea leaf ground up for consumption.
