I received product samples in exchange for a fair and honest review, however my opinions are 100% my own.
It’s early afternoon here and I can feel it….that energy slump that happens to so many of us right…about…now. Usually I head for the pantry or fridge to find a quick snack to perk me up…preferably something sweet or maybe a cup of hot green tea with honey. I’ve known about the health benefits of green tea for long time and I love the flavor. The only problem with green tea is that in order to get all of those wonderful health benefits, you need to be drinking anywhere from 10 or more cups per day! For me, that equals to a whole bunch of extra bathroom trips! Well, there is a solution…with green tea matcha.
KissMe Organics sent me a sample of their organic green tea matcha to try along with a free recipe book with some great ideas. If you haven’t heard about green tea matcha, let me fill you in. Matcha is basically whole green tea leaves in a fine powder form. When you drink just one cup of matcha, it’s the equivalent to 10 cups of regular brewed green tea! This is an easy and delicious way to get all of the amazing green tea benefits in just one cup.
Green tea match contains Theanine which helps reduce mental stress (I need this!), reduces the risk of heart disease, cancers, kidney stones, improves bone density along with many other health benefits. It also boosts your metabolism all day and gives you a natural energy burst! Who wouldn’t want a little more energy in their day? Match also contains 137 times the antioxidants found in brewed green tea.
When my organic green tea matcha arrived, I was anxious to give it a try. I love smoothies and they are easy to whip up on a busy morning or afternoon. I prepared a Banana Green Tea Matcha smoothie in no time at all using half a banana, a cup of almond milk, cup of ice cubes, and two teaspoons of the matcha. The matcha is a bright green color so anything you make with it will probably turn a light shade of green, depending on how much you use. It has a pleasant odor also like fresh green tea leaves and blends very well with other foods. I didn’t have any trouble getting the matcha to blend up well in my smoothie. I also noticed that it has a mild taste, not at all overwhelming. If you enjoy the taste of regular green tea, you will love matcha.

I also noticed a nice burst of energy about 45 minutes to an hour after consuming the matcha. The feeling was not at all jittery as you might expect from drinking too much coffee, but actually felt very natural. Instead of dealing with the afternoon slumps, I was instead perked up and ready to take on the rest of the day. At the same time I felt great knowing I was doing my body a favor.
I plan on consuming green tea matcha every day from now on, to help me feel more energized and take advantage of the great health benefits. I recommend KissMe Organics Organic Green Tea Matcha to anyone looking to improve their health, energy and metabolism.
