Let’s get to know a bit more about the stars of this blend…Matcha, apple and coconut palm sugar. You will be surprised to learn that Matcha and apple powder have many similar health-contributing properties.
The numerous health benefits of this tea…
Apple powder (dried apple) contains pectin which is found in the apple skin and has many tested health benefits including gentle cleansing, natural weight management and much more.
1. Can help protect against inflammatory bowel disease including Crohn’s and IBS symptoms.
2. May help lower cardiovascular disease risk by helping to reduce cholesterol, specifically LDL levels.
3. A rich source of antioxidants
4. Helps with weight management and natural weight loss.
5. When the pectin fiber binds with water in your colon it creates a gel-like substance that helps with constipation and cleansing.
6. Apple powder may help to protect against colon cancer. “A study published in April 2008 in "Nutrition" found that apple pectin led to the formation of butyrate by the intestinal flora. Butyrate is important because it triggers apoptosis, or the death of cancerous cells, within the colon.”
Matcha Green Tea is a superfood both nutritious and healing.
Matcha Benefits …
1. Increases thermogenesis in the body, becoming a potent appetite suppressant and increasing fat oxidation. This in turn helps the body to use fat as an energy source.

Coconut Palm Sugar….the wonder sugar
Coconut Palm sugar has an exotic flavor profile with wonderful notes of light butterscotch and caramel and gives this Caramel apple the decadent caramel flavor.
Coconut Palm sugar is an all-natural, whole food. Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is derived from the sweet nectar of the sugar blossoms that grow at the top of the tropical coconut palm tree. Not only is it a healthy sweetener it is also nutritious…
1. Palm Sugar is naturally low on the Glycemic Index (GI), which is important to those who are concerned about weight control and diabetes.
2. While most sweeteners are devoid of any nutrients, coconut sap sugar is RICH in vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
3. Coconut sap sugar or palm sugar is now considered to be one of the best natural sweeteners, being touted as a "wonder sugar" because of its many health benefits. For more information on our Coconut Nectar sugar, please click here.

How To Make a Caramel Apple Matcha Green Tea Latte
There are many ways to make a good Matcha Latte, but here is our favorite…
1. We take a tall mug of hot or boiling 12-16 ounces – 1/4 filtered water and 3/4 almond milk or milk of choice
2. We add 1 heaping tablespoon of the Matcha Caramel Apple and stir.
That is all there is to it! Simple, quick and tasty. Where the Matcha can tend to clump a bit when mixing, with our Matcha Caramel Apple, the spices and the Coconut Sugar act as a perfect blending agent, so you have no problems with clumping...truly the perfect Green Tea latte!
