It's always time for tea

Matcha Latte

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you I’m a green tea lover. Green tea is so great in so many ways; besides being delicious, it’s high in antioxidants and amino acids, and contains a little caffeine to boost your brain function. Now, enter matcha tea. Matcha tea is like the super version of your average green tea; it’s made out of a special variety of tea grown in Japan, and actually consists of powdered freeze-dried tea leaves. You mix the powder with liquid to get matcha tea, and since you drink the actual leaf rather than just the tea, the brew is much stronger and you get maximum benefits. Matcha can be used for more than just making tea though, you can mix it into baked goods, smoothies, ice cream… The possibilities are endless! One method of consuming matcha that’s become very popular lately is the matcha latte.

I’m 23!

It’s my birthday!

I don’t know how it happens but for the past few years, my birthday has always kind of caught me by surprise. I don’t look forward to it like I used to as a child, haha! I’m keeping my birthday nice and laid back this year, Robbert’s coming to my parents’ house to have a bit of cake but other than that it’s a regular day of work, driving lessons and dance class. I’ll make sure to try and enjoy it too 😉

So this is the start of my life as a 23-year-old. I’m determined to make this a great year! Thank you for all the birthday wishes <3 See you tomorrow, guys! xxxLucy
