GREEN TEA EVERYTHING

Literally, green tea everything. I love green tea. It's my tea of choice as well as matcha desserts! Been an avid fan since I was 12 and it's just an addiction. Green tea is known to have many benefits and one of them is boosting the metabolism.

Matcha powder is finely grounded green tea leaves that has a higher concentration of antioxidants. One cup of matcha green tea is the equivalent to around 10 cups of brewed green tea. I've been adding a teaspoon to my smoothies and drinking a cup before my workouts. Don't let the colour blind you. When the tea is prepared properly, the taste is different to the brewed green tea bags. It's more herbal-ly, earthy. If you're not use to green tea in general, this would take longer to get use to.

The tea will taste bitter if you add hot boiling water straightaway. Leave it to cool for 5-10 minutes then pour the water. A standard tea spoon doesn't help blend the tea properly and you will be left with the powder settling in on the bottom of the cup. The traditional way is to use a whisk and you can buy it at Dream Matcha Tea Co as well. It does blend lovely when I add it to my smoothies to give me that extra boost even though I can't taste the matcha flavour. I've used this to make pancakes, clean ice cream and oh boy, was it delish! I could add this to many things. The list is endless.

This is good quality matcha and is worth spending £13.99 on. Dream Matcha Tea Co also run have a blog where you can find many yummy matcha recipes.

Have you tried matcha green tea?

  1. Wow I can't say I've heard of this before but it definitely sounds interesting - I was never much of a tea person until recently so I'm always open to trying out new things!

    Btw if you're a big tea fan, there's a store called T2 down in London and they have hundreds of different flavours of tea - it's fantastic! xo

  5. I like green tea because of its benefits there are days though that I would prefer something else. It's good to know how to prepare it the right way. Thanks for the instructions, I had no idea you needed a whisk for better blending.

  9. I am ok with Matcha, not as much as others, but I kind of like the taste. We have just come from Japan, and they really use it to flavor a whole lot of delicacies, including Kitkat chocolate bars.

  26. When I drink tea, I go for peppermint or chamomile. I'm not so much a fan of green tea or matcha. There's a bitter aftertaste. It's acquired taste because my friends and my sister are just crazy over matcha. On the other hand, I love the bitter dark chocolates while they don't.

  31. I really need to drink more green tea, I've heard such good things about it and what it can do for you. I had no idea about letting the water cool first, when I've tried it in the past it's been a little bitter and now I know why so thank you for the tip! x
