I love green tea, and usually I drink it cold, but I was given the chance to try some Organic Ceremonial Grade Green Tea Matcha, from KissMe Organics, and I am in love!
This matcha powder is a beautiful and vibrant green color, and makes an equally beautiful cup of tea.
I love the flavor of the tea, but for those that are unaccostomed to drinking tea without a sweetner, you may want to add a bit of honey, or add it directly to a smoothie.
It has a very smooth flavor, and is not gritty at all, as I have heard some mention, but what is matcha? Matcha is a fine powdered form of shade grown green tea leaves. This means you consume the entire leaf providing your body and mind with a maximum concentration of Polyphenols and EGCG. You are consuming 137x the amount of antioxidants as found in brewed green tea, which means that your are making a healthy choice for your body, skin, metabolism, and energy.
There are a lot of matcha teas out there, but this is the only one that is recognized by the United Nations, because it is grown in the top tea-producing Shizuoka region of Japan which is recognized by the United Nations as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System. Thats pretty impressive!
This truly does make a beautiful cup of tea, and can also be used in lattes!
