Matcha is a magical product, with a lot of history and traditions behind it. It wont be this posts subject but I recommend to read a little about it’s history and traditional preparation as it’s really entertaining and interesting. Thank you Japan for introducing us with it!
I’ve heard about Matcha green tea long time ago, but I have never tried it. So when I was approved for product review campaign I got very excited (I received free or discounted product in exchange for providing an unbiased review). Matcha green tea has so many beneficial qualities to it, for example:
- Is packed with antioxidantsincluding the powerful EGCg
- Boosts metabolism and burns calories
- Detoxifies effectively and naturally
- Calms and relaxes
- Enhances mood and aids in concentration
- Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
- Fights against viruses and bacteria
- Is rich in fiber
- Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
- Does not raise insulin levels
It’s like a magic powder. I’m a new mom and coffee is my best friend, as Matcha green tea promises to give you all day energy, to increase focus, to give metabolisms boost (and those are only few miracles it does) I was even more excited to put it all to test.
I was also pleasantly surprised how many different ways are there to use the organic matcha powder, I never knew you can cook with it (culinary grade matcha), in my head it was always green tea, how wrong was I!
After ordering the product from Amazon.ca you get access to free recipe book, recipes are very easy to do, no unknown, nor mystery product, I loved it! Because sometimes you get recipes that are so hard to do at home and you end up stuck with boring product use.
I’ve been using it only few days now, so it’s impossible to see/feel all the promised benefits, but I can tell you, it actually gives you promised energy and focus. I substituted my morning coffee with organic matcha latte and for huge coffee addict as myself it was challenging 🙂 but it did a great job.
With coffee there are days I would have to drink few cups during the day to keep going, I found that matcha keeps my energy level even, I don’t crush like I sometimes do with coffee and that’s amazing, plus knowing all the heath benefits, it makes me super happy!
I have to admit I’m very satisfied with the product, I am excited to try as many different recipes I can, to take advantage of variety of use it offers and I am more excited I want to see how it will benefit me in longer period of time. I’ll keep you posted with progress on my research 🙂
