I love matcha for its ability to boost me up without side effects like coffee does. I’m a mom of three and it requires energy! I like to drink an extra lite latte in the mornings. If I’m drinking strong coffee it can cause insomnia, nervousness, and stomach upset, increased heart and breathing rate. With matcha, it never happens!

Coffee was in my family for ages and there wasn’t green tea nor matcha so it’s not easy to give up a cup of coffee and drink only what’s better for my health… even I know matcha is better!

  1. I drank about 1/2 ltr of Romanian style (ie very, very strong) coffee first thing in the morning for years but gave it up when I became ill three years ago – suddenly didn’t like it so subsituted tea (black tea, much more Yorkshire!) but while we were away this summer reverted to coffee, mainly because it was easier to make just one brew for P and me, and found I liked it. Back in the UK I’m back on tea again. P drinks green tea sometimes (she has ‘phases’ 😜). I’ve never liked green tea. I’ll see if I can find some Matcha and see what she thinks. We have a lot of herbal ‘teas’ in the house, mostly collected by friends in Romanian mountains. We tend to drink them when not feeling too great; tea from Linden tree flowers pretty much ensures you will sleep.

  2. Your comment with the link doesn’t seem to have a ‘reply’ possibility so I’m replying here. We have coltsfoot and cowslip readily available close by; the others I don’t know. If the camomile doesn’t make you sleep you definitely need some linden tree tea (‘ceai de tei’ in Romania; I drank it a lot when I was in pain after surgery and it never failed).

    1. camomile, river peppermint and linden comes from my mom! She collect those and we swap 🙂 You couldn’t replay cause it was tag “herbal teas” that contains individual posts where I used tag “herbal tea” 🙂
