It’s no secret that the Americans love their coffee. They crave their daily cup of joe and can’t seem to function without coffee first thing in the morning. Coffee is certainly an addiction and is probably the world’s favorite beverage.
But did you know that drinking coffee can do you more harm than good?
Let’s take a look at why matcha green tea scores better than coffee any day.
The Caffeine Content
Both coffee as well as matcha green tea contains caffeine. But matcha green tea gives much better caffeine high.
So what do we mean by ‘better’?
The caffeine in coffee can cause more havoc on your body. It usually starts off with a blast but can end in a crash. Coffee is known to cause spikes in insulin, glucose as well as in your adrenaline levels. The rise in these levels contributes to nervousness, jitteriness and in some cases hunger pangs too.
On the other hand, matcha green tea does an amazing job of creating calmness, and that too with only about one-fourth of the caffeine. So you’ll neither experience any sudden rises nor crashes. There will also not be any cravings for pastries or anything sweet.
Matcha green tea has the ability to satiate any hunger pangs. So it’s a great option for those who are worried about their weight.
Matcha Green Tea Ensures Better Breath
Don’t we all know about coffee breath and the enamel staining that it eventually leads to?
Well, matcha green tea is way better for your teeth. It puts a stop to the bacteria that causes plaque. So in a way, a cup of matcha green tea takes care of your oral hygiene as well.
Matcha Green Tea Enhances Your Skin
If you’ve ever noticed the skin of hardcore coffee drinkers, then you probably know what we are talking about.
Matcha helps in clearing up acne. What’s more is that the Japanese women have used matcha as a facial mask for centuries. This is because the anti-bacterial properties in matcha help in giving your skin a natural glow. So imagine if you were to start drinking matcha green tea, your body will be cleansed inside and out.
Matcha is Filled With Antioxidants
Well, there’s a reason why matcha green tea are finding more drinkers. Have a look at the matcha green tea antioxidants levels as compared to other healthy foods.

Matcha contains flavonoids, polyphenols as well as catechins. It’s also made up of the powerful epigallocatechin gallate, also popularly known as EGCG. All of these antioxidants have been linked to plenty of health benefits. They also have therapeutic applications in treating many health disorders, cancer included.
Hands down, the winner seems to be matcha green tea.
Now we are not saying that you stop drinking coffee completely. You can cut down on the number of times you have coffee during the day and instead simply replace it with matcha green tea.
What’s more is that, it’s very simple to make a cup of tea. You won’t need any complicated appliances as well. All you need to do is boil the water and let it sit for about five minutes. Now add the green tea powder and froth away!
