This adaptogenic latte is the perfect way to maximize brain power and improve you stress response due to the potent activity of both the Matcha Tea and the Ashwagandha powder.


Adaptogenic Matcha Tea Latte


For all of those matcha tea enthusiasts who use the bamboo brush to make their tea, I am sorry.

This Adaptogenic Matcha Tea Latte recipe uses a blender to combine the ingredients for simplicities sake (also because I don’t have a bamboo brush to properly brew matcha with. I know I am a monster).

After researching how to buy matcha tea, I realized I did it all wrong many moons ago.

What you want to look for:

– It should be very finely ground
– The powder should be bright green (not yellow).
– It should have a fairly sweet taste (not bitter)
– If you can, try to buy the matcha freshly ground (no sealed bags in containers)

There are other criteria you want to look out for but these are my top ones.

Why does it matter?

The potent effects Matcha won’t be as effective if you’re not using high-quality stuff.

I, unfortunately, used a Matcha powder that I found at my local international store, and it doesn’t meet a lot of the criteria I researched.

How is it Adaptogenic?

So matcha isn’t adaptogenic but ashwagandha is!

Combine the two together and you have a powerful, stress relieving health drink!

It’s important to safely source any “supplemental” powder. I bought my ashwagandha from this Amazon store. They abide by Good Manufacturing Practices, which are among the highest standards in the world.
