Hi, I am on a detox/reset diet at the moment (fish&rice) and it seems Matcha Tea is a good thing to drink. I went to a local supermarket and found lots of options. The big difference was the percentage of Matcha they had.
Teapigs pure teapigs.co.uk/matcha/matcha... was £10 for 14 bags, thats 71p a cup, so I thought I would find out a bit more before going this route! The box is £10.
Sainsburys own sainsburys.co.uk/webapp/wcs... has 5% Macha granules and is £1,50 for 20 bags. That's the highest of the others but is the granules bit relevant?
Twinings Matcha twinings.co.uk/tea/superble... has 2.5% and is £2.60
Mint Matcha Green pukkaherbs.com/shop/organic... has 2% and is £2.80
The only reason I mention the price is the teapigsone is a lot more.
So my question is what percentage should I be looking for, pakka websites say 2% is enough for the benefits (not sure how many cups they are talking but they are implying 1 I guess).
I am on a detox diet as I have stomach problems, it seems to be helping but I do get a lot of wind. I seem to have problems with gluten, sugar, strong coffee and stuff that is very fatty.
Advice on Matcha tea would be good but general advice also obviously useful.
