Verdant and versatile, I love it! (5 Stars)
If you've been a fan of the blog for a while you know that wellness and health are pretty important to me. That said, I am not a band-wagoner. Many health trends come and go as all fads should but there are some products that are time tested and have just flown under the radar. Often they're everyday substances used in other cultures that we just aren't familiar with. matcha is probably one of those for you.
While you may not have heard of matcha... you're probably well acquainted with green tea.
Matcha is a form of green tea used in the Japanese tea ceremony. I did some research in preparing to sample this product so if matcha is new to you I recommend you do the same. Its health benefits are awesome but if you're like me and tend to prefer tea and coffee over soda and juice you'll love it because it's delicious.
But let me tell you specifically about my experience with Kiss Me Organics' organic matcha. I giggled when I opened up my package from Amazon because there was a note attached to the bag to warn about the strong aroma to expect when I opened the pouch. This is very fresh and therefore the smell is very rich and verdant as soon as you open it. I love the scent myself so I had to resist sniffing lest I get it all over!
I've been experimenting with it since receiving my complimentary sample and I don't own a matcha whisk so my teas have been a little silty but I found a clever way to fix that by using my french press to prepare it. If you don't care for the taste of matcha it can be hidden in fruit smoothies or used in baking. Something to consider if you want to bake though is that high heat destroys many antioxidants so if you're focusing on matcha for its health benefits I'd recommend something delicious that doesn't involve boiling or baking like my Matcha Mint Magic drink or making popsicles if you're not into smoothies or teas.
Don't worry if you're not a matcha maven yet, KMO has got ya covered. They will email you a really helpful recipe book when you purchase their organic matcha. I expected it to be kind of slapped together but it's very nice, with full color photos and realistic ingredients. Not just smoothies, lattes, and teas but ways to incorporate it into pizza, frosting, dips, curries, and meat dishes. I really want to try some matcha scones!
What I've been really impressed with is the lack of an astringent aftertaste that I commonly find I have when drinking regular green tea. It's smooth and mildly sweet with a green flavor that's rich without being tart. I also have experienced a balanced and notable mental energy boost without the jitters and crashed-feeling coffee and black tea usually give me. I haven't noticed considerable differences in my skin or metabolism yet but it's still a new addition to my routine.
All in all, if you're looking for a budget-friendly way to introduce matcha into your health and wellness routine I would definitely recommend it. The quality is good and the benefits are well worth finding ways to make it part of your every day diet in some way.
Notes: 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.
