First up for review is Kiss Me Organics, Organic Matcha Powder. What is so great about Matcha Green Tea? Well, it has four very appealing benefits when consumed on a regular basis: antioxidants, improvement of skin health, energy and metabolism booting properties.
According to their website:
Kiss Me Organics was kind enough to send me a package of their Organic Matcha Powder and some recipes designed to enjoy the flavor while basking in the benefits of this wonder powder. You'll get the report URL when you receive your order of Matcha!
Every morning my husband and I have a warm glass of honey lemon water to kick start our day. Since we started doing that, we have found a positive difference in our digestion, so that alone is worth the price of lemons.
When I received my sample pack of Organic Matcha Powder, I decided that the best way that I could make use of this was to add it to our morning drink.
The first way I tried was to just stir in a 1/2 tsp into each glass manually. Even with warm water, it did not dissolve completely, but there was no chalky or gritty mouthfeel, so that wasn't really too much of an issue. The next morning I decided to put my Nutribullet to use and gave the powder and warm water a quick buzz before adding the lemon and honey. Magic! It was frothy and smooth and perfectly delicious. I'll add my recipe to the bottom of this post if you're interested in trying it for yourself.
So now that I've been using the matcha each morning, have I seen any improvements? We've been making slow and steady improvements to our diet and health in our home this last year, and I believe this is going to become a fixture in our cupboard. I do have more energy and focus these days, which is much needed this time of the year, and since I have been dealing with some lethargy issues lately, I have to give the credit to Kiss Me Organics and their Matcha Green Tea Powder.
Since they send a link to 10 recipes with each order, I tried the latte also (delish!) and am looking forward to baking their marble cake - healthy cake? Yes, please! I'll post here once I get around to it, possibly this weekend.
So how do you get your own? So easy! Click here (Canadians) or here (my friends in the USA) or here (my friends in the UK) and get your own 4oz bag for less than $30! It may not sound like a whole lot, but you don't need to use very much to get all the awesome benefits and this bag will last the average person about 6 weeks! That is a small price to pay for increased energy, tonnes of antioxidants, healthy skin and a boost to your metabolism!
Early Morning Matcha Lemon Drink
1 tsp Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder
2 Tbsp honey
1 cup hot water
1 cup cold water
1. Mix Matcha into hot water, either by hand or in a small blender, dissolving completely.
2. Add 1/2 cup cold water to each glass.
3. Roll lemon around on the counter, applying pressure as you roll - this will help loosen the juice. Cut lemon in half.
4. Squeeze all the juice out of one lemon half into one glass. Repeat with other.
5. Add 1/2 cup of the matcha water to each glass and 1 tbsp honey - DO NOT add honey to pure hot water - you will kill off all the beneficial elements present in the honey. Add it to the warm water only.
6. Stir to combine and enjoy! You can also add muddled mint leaves for a little change every now and then.
