I feel bad even thinking it but I just didn't have a lot of faith in to begin with. I was pretty thrilled though when Kiss Me Organics asked me to review their Organic Matcha - Green Tea Powder. Matcha Tea can help with things like boosting energy, increasing metabolism, and helping improve blood circulation. We also all know that green tea in itself provides a great source of antioxidants!
So when this first arrived, I had planned on it coming with a recipe book and unfortunately it accidentally didn't. Because of this I tried to go with one of my own smoothie recipes and add in a scoop. Little did I know you could be quite sparing when using the Macha Powder as a little bit goes a long way. The taste of the first smoothie was needless to say gross and too overpowering.
After emailing Kiss Me Organics to get a better recipe, I quickly learned there were better recipes and ways to mix the Matcha tea into my daily lifestyle. Matcha Green Tea is considered to be "super green tea, not because it is a super-charged version of regular green tea but because it allows us green tea lovers to reap the rewards in a wider variety of ways. One glass of matcha green tea is equal to 10 glasses of regular green tea as far as antioxidants and nutrients. "
Matcha contains a powerful antioxidant called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) that can fight against tons of terminal illnesses and diseases. For people like me with terrible immune systems this can be just the boost I need to get my health back on track. It can also boost you up in another way. Without the normal caffiene you can experience 4-6 hours of a boost in energy without the shakes or crashes!
And let's be real the biggest reason people are talking about Matcha Green Tea lately is for its help with weight loss. Because of it thermogenic properties, a person can burn up to 40% more of their daily calories by adding Matcha to a beverage or food prior to working out.
The biggest thing for me is that because the Matcha Green Tea Powder is so finely ground, I can use it in a variety of recipes. So for people like me who cannot stand the taste of normal green tea and even of the Matcha tea itself, we can add it to another meal or beverage and still reap the benefits! I've actually add this to a few meals besides the smoothies and not a single family member has noticed it!
Organic Matcha-Green Tea Powder
Recommendation: Definitely a good price for the time frame it should last you and the multiple ways you can use it. I ultimately was not a fan of the taste alone but when mixed into any recipe it was pretty good. I think for its health benefits this is definitely something for others to look into and invest in.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
