Great product! I ordered this product and received it within one week. I have been using this product for 3 days and have lost 4LBS and have more energy.
Matcha is a magical product, with a lot of history and traditions behind 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. 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 it, I never knew you can cook with it, 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 :)
I have talked before about Matcha and I keep bringing it up, I suppose because I love the stuff. I am a weirdo, however, and enjoy things like brussel sprouts, broccoli, spinach and kale. I like the earthly, leafy flavours and was probably a rabbit in a past life.
Most people do not feel the same way about veggies and I am seeing an increasing trend among friends, or their children, who are steering away from greens. Now, that is a completely different blog post in itself and I hate that idea, but nonetheless I may be alone in enjoying the matcha flavour. I know that is the case in our household, as I have introduced my husband to it and he nearly gagged when trying to drink the tea previously- and he's one who will eat greens without fuss! He tried it as a result of the energy boost provided though and that benefit alone outweighs the taste for him. Dr. Oz recently did a show that featured a segment on matcha, which you can view here, and discusses the fantastic health benefits of using this product.
With the Kiss Me Organics Matcha, you're receiving something that is USDA certified organic and they test their leaves in the lab to make certain that their tea is of the highest quality. This is important to me because it means that pesticides, chemical-laden fertilizers and herbicides have not been used on the plants, on top of the company taking steps to make certain that the tea was not exposed to unsafe toxins as a result of the geographical location.
With matcha tea you're getting about 30mg of caffeine per cup, an excellent source of amino acids, 1/2 tsp is equal to 8-10 cups of regular tea where antioxidants are concerned and it improves focus, as well as memory. Very important point here for any other Mamas on the reader list; it also blocks fat from entering your cells! Oh yeah baby! I wouldn't care if it tasted like gym socks, which thankfully it does not, I would be drinking it daily. In all seriousness though, for me personally, I enjoy the calming ceremony of whisking matcha green tea and sipping from my ceremonial bowl. I'm a nerd, I know. This particular brand is not one that I would drink directly like that, however, as it tastes a bit muddy to me and I do not find it to be of the same vibrant, gorgeous green colour that DoMatcha was. The straight drink is not something I would recommend for this one but it works out alright as I do not always have time for that anways. I simply wish to include it in my diet, regardless of the rush that I am in. For that purpose, or so that my husband can enjoy the benefits without the flavour that he does not enjoy, we make a matcha smoothie. The value provided from Kiss Me Organics is excellent for the smoothies, as you can still gain the benefits from green tea powder but don't have to spend an arm and a leg to include it in a wide variety of recipes.
In a smoothie, you can include nearly anything you would like, with any mix you so choose. I typically add in organic soy or almond milk, a tsp of matcha, some frozen berries, 1/3 of a cup of North Coast Naturals fibre and half of a banana. I say only half because my one year old daughter eats the other and I toss the remaining end in to use it up. See photos for the resulting, delicious drink.
With Kiss Me Organics, you can find a multitude of uses for the matcha green tea powder with their recipe booklet, like matcha rice or lattes, and the product itself is of Certified Organic quality. It's absolutely delicious in a smoothie and, if the mood suits, I add in some coconut oil for the additional health benefits. I make sure to use my Still Eagle straw (which you can read about on my blog www.mydomesticdish) and am good to go for the day!
How do you fit healthy choices into your busy lifestyle?
I was very intrigued to try the Kiss Me Organics: Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder. The benefits are:
ALL DAY ENERGY & FOCUS: Lift your vitality and concentration with the slow release natural energy. CALORIE BURNING BOOSTER: Support your weight loss goals with an all-natural way to increase your body's metabolism. Consuming matcha green tea can increase the body’s own rate of burning calories from a normal 8-10% to between 35-43%.
LATTES | SMOOTHIES | BAKING: Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder arrives in an easy-to-use airtight health grade packaging allowing for as much or as little use as you need for any occasion. Enjoy a relaxing latte in the morning, bake a dozen cupcakes or simply add a small boost to your morning smoothie
137x ANTIOXIDANTS OF BREWED GREEN TEA: USDA Organic Matcha Green Tea can only be used in a powdered form because, unlike brewed green tea, it contains the entire tea leaf which dramatically increases the nutritional content. This boosts your body’s natural defenses against oxidation and can prevent many age-related diseases.
Improved skin health: Matcha Green Tea helps protect the skin from UVrays, while improving blood flow and oxygen levels.
I have been drinking using it for 2 weeks now and it has replaced my coffee! I love caffeine because being a mom of three, I need all the energy I can get. I love that I get that feeling from this product AND it’s a lot healthier. I stay fit and try to eat and drink healthy but I’m not one that’s going to force anything down my throat, I want to enjoy it. It tastes so good and there’s soo many recipes drinks to cupcakes to try. My favorite is a Green Tea Shake:
1 tsp. Matcha
2 tsp. warm water
½ cup ice cream
2 tbsp. milk
Combine warm water and matcha, stir until blended.
Add remaining ingredients into a blender and run until smooth.
Pour matcha mixture on top and run for 5 to 10 additional seconds, or until milkshake turns green.
Pop in a straw and enjoy!
Also they offer a Hassle-Free MoneyBack Guarantee!
