I got my White Matcha Tea to review a couple of weeks ago. And I was beyond excited! I had heard so many great things!
Did you know...
*No GMO's or additives - LOVE this!
*Matcha is usually Green Tea - so this is special!
*The tea is stone ground into a fine powder - the key to matcha!
Why stone ground? Because it doesn't take away flavor or health benefits - and tea is SO good for you!
What kind of health benefits?
*High antioxidant count to kill free radicals in the blood stream
*Reduces the risk of certain types of cancer
*Decreases fine lines and wrinkles (yeah!)
*Helps maintain a good complexion
So what did I think?
It tastes good. Really - I am a tea drinker at heart. I don't like coffee...at all. So, tea is my thing! It definitely has a unique flavor - but it is a good one!
It lasts a long time. You only need to use a tiny little bit for each cup, so even though you only get a small pouch - it will last you a decent amount of time.
I do think that drinking the tea helped my complexion. Being pregnant means I feel like I"m in high school again with all of the random break outs and obviously noticeable pimples. And the 3 or 4 days I remembered to drink the tea in a row led to 3 or 4 days of less break outs. :)
Most of all, I love eating (or drinking) things that I know are helping my body and not hurting it. Because, let's face it, most of the stuff that we eat is probably doing more harm than good.
I was very disappointed when I opened the package and found that there were no directions. The products are on Amazon (which is how they sent my product) so I went there and found incomplete directions. I had to go to their website to figure out what to do. Which is extremely inconvenient. I feel like it would take 2 seconds to print out a brief set of directions for each order.
I'm not sure if it is because I'm pregnant or what - but the texture really bothered me. No matter how hot I made the water, the powder didn't quite disappear. That really didn't agree with me. However, I tried putting it in my Keurig self-brew cup and made it like I would loose leaf tea. It is much better that way - though still has a somewhat weird texture.
Would I get more?
Probably not. I love the health benefits. But I just can't get past the texture for the price. But everyone is different - so you should definitely give it a try!
You can buy 30 grams on Amazon for 19.99 and FREE shipping! And who doesn't love free shipping!?!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.
