I know. Corny headline, but it is so true. I start every morning with a sublime cup of matcha deliciousness. It's replaced my coffee ritual as it provides the same powerful energy but doesn't cause jitteriness. It's perfect and I love it so much that I'll never go back to drinking coffee.
I am a tea lover! I like all types of tea including black, green, white, and herbal. I have read about Matcha tea and have always wanted to try it, but I did not know how I would use it. I was hesitant because I thought it would be a lot of work compared to my other teas. I was wrong. It is simple to use. I put it in smoothies, drank it hot and cold, and I liked it in all of them. I am always trying to take a healthier option and this tea fits that. First, it is organic! It is very high in antioxidants! I try not to drink coffee because when I do I can end up feeling very anxious. I have been drinking this tea in the morning instead of having a cup of coffee and I do not get that anxious feeling! The taste is very pleasing, and I love knowing that I am adding positive elements to my body when I drink it. I will be ordering more of it because it is tasty, healthy, easy to use, and I want to make the right choices with what I eat and drink.
This 1 OZ pouch is convenient for traveling. The matcha powder blends well with hot water or warm almond milk using a bamboo whisk and creates a little latte froth. I like to sprinkle nutmeg on top. I have also tried the chocolate flavor match and like that one a little better than the plain.
Flavor is ok, not anywhere near the strength that I am use to when I buy matcha in Japan. The main problem with this is that the matcha does not dissolve, no matter how much I whisk it. In fact, two bristles has broken off from my matcha whisk while trying to dissolve the powder. I hate sipping tea and all of a sudden, I get little beads of matcha in the mouth. Not pleasant at all.
