Don’t know how to get rid of them not to eat all my plants.

Tips:

  • Matcha powder and Konnyaku powder can find it in Japanese or Chinese supermarket.
  • Adzuki beans can find it in Chinese or Indian supermarket.
  • You can use normal jelly powder instead of Konnyaku powder, because I  am vegetarian, so I need to use it.
  • If you don’t like Matcha powder, you can skip this, just use soy milk and oats, it is fine.
  • Matcha delivers a much higher potency of catechins,chlorophyll, and antioxidants. By weight, matcha contains more antioxidants than blueberrieswolfberriespomegranatesorange juice and spinach.
  • There is evidence from clinical studies that suggests that theanine, when consumed by drinking Japanese green teas, may help to reduce or moderate mental stress responses.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matcha
