 It's not easy being green! Well - that may not be exactly true for matcha.

Matcha is a finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea.  The translation literally means "powdered tea." If you are a tea drinker, you most likely use a tea bag, infuse your hot water for a few minutes, then remove the tea bag from the water.  The contents remain in the tea bag (or the most part) the entire process.

With matcha, you are actually consuming the tea itself; the powdered leaves are put directly into the water for infusion.  Traditionally, matcha is used in the Japanese tea ceremony, not loose green tea.

So - why drink matcha in the first place?

Asparagus Water-gate | Whole Foods Attempt at Detox Water Infusions

By now, if you have not heard about the hoop-la surrounding Whole Foods "Asparagus Water," you probably would not care much to read this blog anyway.  But if your interest has peaked and you are unfamiliar with what I like to call, "Asparagus Water-gate," here are a few details.

In the first week of August 2015, bottles of Asparagus Water appeared on Whole Foods shelves at $6 a pop.  Inside each bottle was, you guessed it, water and 3 stalks of asparagus.  Naturally, outraged ensued on social media, prompting Whole Foods spokeswoman Liz Burkhart to release this response:

"We actually don't sell asparagus water in our stores." (per USA Today)

Regardless of how you feel about Whole Foods, their pricing etc, they may have been on to something with that seemingly overpriced bottle of asparagus and water. Yup, you guessed it!  This was their attempt at tapping into the detox water infusions and their health benefits on your body, mind and overall emotional well-being.

Are Water and Mindfulness a Winning Combination?

It is not uncommon for people to start their day with meditation.  Meditation is a state of peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent.  Of course, to those of us who have some experience with meditation, my definition goes something like this: wrestling with my thoughts on everything that has happened in the past week for 20 minutes as I try to get my brain to quiet down.  And that is not entirely incorrect definition, either!  The goal of mediation is to be at peace with those thoughts as they come and go, and observe them without dwelling or passing judgement.

If you are a morning meditator, where does detox water fit into the picture?
