Why I love matcha tea!

October 7, 2017 in Blog - No Comments - 2 min read

Matcha tea is very marmite, You either love it or you hate it. I personally am OBSESSED with it. It makes me feel so good and incredibly energetic when I need it most. I usually wouldn’t be so bothered in letting people know I love a certain drink but, this is slightly different.

Ever since I was 13, I’ve been suffering from horrible migraines, that literally take a whole day out of my life. If I wake up with one, then that’s it, my whole day is confined to my bed and the only sort of remedy I’ve found is to just be unconscious. I can eat anything or drink anything, as my migraine will just not allow it to stay down there. I’m sure some of you can relate and trust me and I am with you and feel your pain.

Myself nor a doctor has never been able to pinpoint what’s causing it? is it too much dairy, not enough water? We just don’t know.

So I started drinking matcha tea. I’m a big fan of herbal tea, in all kinds of flavors anyway. So I decided to do the occasional shot of matcha when I felt slightly peaky wouldn’t be too much of a problem. The first few times, around 20 minutes of drinking it, I had this really positive high, physically and mentally. I really don’t know how to describe it, I just felt really good and loved it. My energy levels went up, and I felt incredibly proactive, whether I was working or hitting the gym. I didn’t feel tired.

And combining my matcha tea with water, my headaches were not so frequent. Now it could be a coincidence but I choose to believe, these two factors were helping me.

So this is watch Matcha tea does:

  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Detoxifies effectively and naturally
  • Calms the mind and relaxes the body
  • Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium  (Source)

And I think these factors, may have been what my body was screaming out for. Matcha brings this high sense of relaxation and it should not be overlooked. Matcha is just a really pure form of green tea and I think it tastes the same or sometimes, the taste is really minimal (depending on which brand you go for)

So if you get migraines and are looking for some form of relief, try matcha! Its only healthy for you and I really think it improves your wellbeing.

I’m also working on creating a monthly newsletter (Starting in January) with social media and self-care tips and tricks I’ve found that works for me. These are two of my favourite topics to talk about so I think combining them together, will be a lovely little dose of news.

  • 💫 Thank goodness for Sundays! It’s been a long week and I cannot wait to just chill & watch 🎬 movies today. I thought I would give little update on how I’m getting on with the ⭐️NEW #BioluminCeye serum #gifted from @DermalogicaUK. It’s really nice to just brush over your 🧖🏼‍♀️ eyes in the morning & really perks me up (I literally reach for all my morning skincare as soon as I 😴 wake up). My under eye area feels a lot brighter & softer after use from these past couple of weeks. Pretty sure, I’m gonna have to 🛍 restock this one soon! 💖#skinfluencer
  • ✨ if only my week was as magical as these cute little tea lights. This week has literally been sponsored by lemon tea ☕️ & throat sweets 🍬 I’ve been off sick that last couple of days and I can tell you it is not ideal. ❄️ Isn’t the weather so bitterly cold in Cambridge recently? Not great when you’re under the weather with a cold! 🥶💖
  • 💫 And just like that, we’ve got through Monday.👊🏼 I had throughly enjoyed my weekend of just taking things slowly and chilling, I definitely need to have more weekends like this.✨ Since moving, I honestly love just hanging out in our living room because the space is sooo bright (can’t wait for longer ☀️days) and also I just feel so cosy here. 😻 Fee has her little spot at the end, right next to the radiator for the colder days too. I think I just need to get a few more pictures 📸 on the wall (currently being very fussy), maybe some more 🛋 cushions & definitely some more house plants. 🌿 Any home decor reccomendations? 💫
  • 🌟 Sunday’s are for doing the things you love.✨ That’s why my day will consist of 👩🏼‍💻blogging, ☕️ drinking massive amounts tea, 📸 scrapbooking and 📺 binging a little bit of Netflix. What does your Sunday look like? 💖
  • 💫I’m so glad we are hitting Friday tomorrow! Is it just me or has this week lasted for like, a year? I have a new blog post 👩🏼‍💻up though all about one of my new favourite coffee ☕️ spots in Cambridge. ✨ PLEASE go check this place out and treat yo’self if you’re local. The food is just divine. 💖
  • C’est fini! 🎉Really pleased to have finished my third book 📚 of the year & the 1st book of @bethsbookclub_ for 2020. Can I just say, this is SUCH a heartwarming💖 but also heartbreaking story! I didn’t want to love Ove as much as I did but I just couldn’t help it, really looking forward to chatting 👩🏼‍💻to everyone about this book later in the month. Now I need new book 📖 recommendations, what’s on your current reading list? 💫 #2020reads
