Review: Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade Green Tea Powder



Product Description: 

New!! ORGANIC MATCHA - CEREMONIAL GRADE
EXPERIENCE THE HIGHEST GRADE AND QUALITY OF MATCHA, DIRECTLY FROM JAPAN.

NOTE:  Although this tea is ideally taken with just water, we have take the time to create a recipe guide that includes other ways to enjoy. But this type of Matcha itself is strictly for drinking because of its sweeter, and smoother taste.

There are so many Matcha powder in the market today.  What makes ours different?  Let's consider these facts:

* UP TO ​137x THE ANTIOXIDANTS OF BREWED GREEN TEA:  Matcha is a fine powdered form of shade grown green tea leaves. This means you consume the entire leaf providing your body and mind with a maximum concentration of Polyphenols and EGCG.

UP TO 137x THE ANTIOXIDANTS OF BREWED GREEN TEA

My Thoughts: 

I've been drinking different types of teas for the past few months even herbal and green teas and have been pleased for the most part with all the new and different teas that I have tried so when I got the chance to try this Matcha tea out for free, I was interested and excited.



I followed the directions for just mixing with water and found it to be ok. I then added a bit of honey to it which made it much more palatable. but I've found that true for most of the tea that I've been sampling over the past few months.

It was very fresh and came completely sealed.

Once the top was popped there was a little foil bag inside that was also sealed.

I opened the foil bag and emptied the contents into the reclosable tin. 

I made a hot cup of the tea and added a bit of honey to it and found that it was pretty good. If you like Matcha tea then you will probably like this. 


If you would like to try this out, you can order the Ceremonial Grade Matcha at Amazon.

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.
