Today marks the launch of the UK's first ever matcha bar from teapigs. Popping up at Boxpark in Shoreditch, it will be running for one week only.
The teapigs matcha bar will gives curious customers and healthistas alike a taste of the health sensation that is matcha with an array of matcha based drinks and snacks; traditional matcha green tea, matcha lattes, matcha kit kats and even a few cheeky matcha cocktails. You'll also be able to learn first-hand all about this super power green tea and stock up on your supply.
teapigs will also be hosting a series of events during the week including a special workshop on mindfulness from modern meditation experts, Headspace, and a talk from healthy eating expert, Natasha Corrett from Honestly Healthy.
For those that don't know, matcha is 100% organic green tea leaves that have been grown down to a fine powder. It contains 15 times the health benefits of regular green tea, 6 times the antioxidants of goji berries and 70 times the antioxidants of orange juice. It is reported to give a slow release of energy lasting up to 6 hours and to boost metabolism.
So get down there and beat the January blues!
