Let`s talk about Matcha


I love tea! I can drink hot or cold tea throughout the whole year and never get tired of it. Tea makes me relax and of course warms me up during the cold winter days. I drink almost every type of tea there is, with exception of red colored tea, because for some reason they do not taste good to me.  However I have always liked to drink green tea, especially when I was a teen and as many other people at this age, I was struggling with thoughts that I was fat (I really wasn`t). So that is when I started to drink green tea for weight loss.

Drinking Matcha Grean Tea has become very popular lately because of its health benefits and I really wanted to try it. Matcha is a fine-ground, powdered, high-quality green tea from Japan, that is also used as an ingredient in recipes. I have read that one glass of Matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content. Not all Matcha teas are created equal and the easiest way to recognize a high quality Matcha is by its bright green color. There are Ceremonial Grade, which is a high quality Matcha and Culinary Grade which is used for cooking. I also wanted to mention that Matcha is an expensive tea and if you find anything for a cheap price, there is probably something you should be worried about.

I came across KissMe Organic and their Ceremonial Grade Matcha which is natural, organic, vegan and non gmo, and it comes in a package inside a sealed top tin. The tea has a strong green tea scent and a green color, which is not as bright as I was expecting, but is also not muddy green like some other Matcha, that I have seen online. While I am not an expert in Matcha taste because this was my first time trying some and I have no comparison, I can not say if KissMe Organics Matcha Green Tea is better or worse than other brands, but I can  say that the one I tried tastes great. It has smooth Green Tea flavor, which is not sweet as some people said Matcha should taste, but is not bitter either and I actually enjoy drinking it without any sweetener. KissMe Organics also sent a recipe guide with my purchase that includes a lot of interesting recipes to try Matcha in. I have not had a chance to try any yet, but I am excited as well as interested to see how Matcha Green Tea tastes in a smoothie or a cake, even though it may sound nasty, I heard that the flavor is delicious and I can not wait to try.
