Laura Dern Loves Matcha Tea—And It May Be Why She Looks So Young
Laura Dern is one of those Hollywood actresses who never seems to age. The 51-year-old, whose performance for her role in the HBO filmThe Taleearned her a 2019 Emmy nomination, has a very relaxed-but-healthy approach to diet and fitness. But while other stars swear by green juice and smoothies, Dern claims one of the secrets she looks young for her age is in the form of a DIY tea drink.
Dern told The New YorkTimeslast year that she concocts a matcha green tea with her whisk, and she loves it. “I put manuka honey in it,” she explains. “My children are like: ‘Mom! That honey isodd.’ But then when they don’t feel well, I make them hot water with fresh ginger, manuka honey and a dash of cayenne. Drink that tea, and life is good.”
But what is matcha? In recent years,matcha—a bright-green tea powder—has become increasingly popular, as can be demonstrated by the abundance of #matcha posts on Instagram. In addition to making tea with it, people have been concocting everything from matcha sparkling tonic to matcha ice cream and cookies.
In addition to its filter-friendly bright green hue, matcha boasts a slew of health benefits. A number of scientific studies claim the antioxidant-packed brew can increase metabolism, suppress hunger, potentially reduce the risk of depression, and may even help prevent cancer.
However, if you are going to follow Dern’s lead and blend up some matcha of your own, you might want to take one thing into consideration: it packs a pretty big punch when it comes to caffeine. A cup of matcha has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, so unless you want a serious case of the jitters, consume with caution.
