Review: White Matcha Tea

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
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 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 Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. Matcha is really great to throw into green smoothies in small amounts for an antioxidant boost. I'm not a huge fan of the taste by itself. Anyways, nice review!

    1. That's a really great idea! I'll have to remember that....still have some left!
