8 Alternative Health Secrets From Japan, As Seen On Dr. Oz. No 2? Matcha Tea

September 29, 2010


Dr. Oz crossed international borders to bring you the secrets of health and longevity practiced in some of the world’s healthiest countries. First up: Japan, where people not only live longer, but also are much thinner than us. How do they do it? By following 8 simple guidelines…
No 2. Matcha green tea This super-charged green tea comes in powder form and offers the stress-relieving, heart-healthy and anti-depressant powers of green tea in an easy to use, concentrated powder. In Japan, Matcha is consumed several times daily and served to guests regularly. The ritual of enjoying tea and offering it to visitors in your home provides another healthy benefit—a time out during the day to relax and enjoy something that is good for you. Pick up some macha at your local health food store, add one teaspoon to a cup of hot water, stir and make time to share it with friends and family daily. Since it’s sweeter than regular green tea, you might even convert tea skeptics.

    When I was a child, I loved Usu-cha-to (薄茶糖), the matcha powder with sugar. Regular matcha is bitter for children. Usu-cha-to is weaker and sweet. I used to drink it mixed with milk. My grandmother made it for me:)

    I used to also be a tea skeptic and preferred coffee. But after listening to Dr. Oz and following his advice I have become an avid green tea drinker and enjoy trying all flavors. I especially like the various blooming teas – it is fascinating to watch the buds bloom in the water – and very tasty too!
