I can be considered as a tea addict. I love the comfortable sense that this hot drink gives. If I can't drink tea, I sometimes start having a headache; or if I have a headache, I drink tea and it goes away :) Although I love black tea much more, I'm always open to trying new interesting and healthy tastes. And Matcha is one of them. To be honest, I've never heard about this tea before. But I wanted to try it as I used to drink green tea in the past and I also love caramel.
This is a green powder as you can see (I put it in a small bottle to preserve it, and it needs to be kept in fridge). As a powder, I didn't like the smell of it very much, but it smells quite good inside the drink. Before preparing your drink, the powder needs to be sifted in order to avoid clumps. And there are many options to use your Matcha Green Tea Powder either in beverages or food. You can check the delicious recipes here.
PS: One cup of Matcha Green Tea Powder equals to 7 cups of green tea.
First, I tried it with warm milk. I'm not quite fond of pure warm/hot milk (I prefer it cold), but as we are in winter, I decided to go for the warm one :) Actually, I can't say that I liked the Matcha with milk; it kinda made me feel peckish. The next day, I tried the Matcha with hot water as a tea. This time, the taste was really good. However, the powder accumulated at the bottom, but I ate it with a spoon; it was nice! It's 100% natural and only 4 calories per serving. Its fiber content is very high and helps you lose weight four times quicker. It is also a great antioxidant and boosts energy. So if you feel tired or sick, I recommend you to try it.
