What if the tea bags contained microplastics? Some do, as a study by the BBC and the University of East Anglia, which has tested the six most consumed brands in the UK, has shown. That is why the Spanish startup Matcha & CO has decided to abolish them and launch powdered tea.
Taken in this way, this drink preserves its beneficial effects, but there is also an increase in the absorption of its nutrients and a reduction in the risk of consuming microplastics.
The four varieties of tea preferred by the Spanish are the Englisg Breakfast, the Jasmine, the Rooibos and the Earl Gray. That is why they are the types that Matcha & CO have put on the market in the powder format.
English Breakfast tea is black and uplifting, with an intense flavor. Consumed as a powder, it helps the creation of red blood cells, contains antioxidants and improves intestinal transit.
Jasmine, sweet and aromatic, stimulates brain function and also helps you lose weight. Also sweet and fruity aroma, Rooibos protects cells from the damaging action of free radicals.
And finally, Earl Gray, with a slightly citrus flavor, improves the immune system and digestion, as well as having a high concentration of antioxidants.
