Midori Spring Matcha green tea~ product review

It is said to have many health benefits, such as: "reducing stress and improving mental alertness, improving metabolism and helping with weight loss, boosting the immune system and helping to reduce inflammation and to cleanse the body of impurities".

Then you are to whisk it until it gets a foamy top, and then drink immediately. You can what a video showing preparation and education here.
