July's Tea of the Month: Sweet Organic Matcha Green Tea


3 comments


Matcha green tea seems to be a buzzword these days.  So in an imaginary, but very plausible conversation (probably in a health food store or on a tea aisle), it would go something like this:

Person #1:  So do you like green tea?
Person #2:  Of course, I love green tea.
Person #1:  What about matcha green tea?  Have you tried matcha?
Person #2:  No, but I drink green tea after my meals and sometimes I use it in my smoothies.  It's all about those antioxidants, right?
Person #1:  For real.  Green tea is life!  But if you're all about antioxidants, you've got to try matcha green tea.  It's like THE green tea of all green teas.

(conversation continues as Person #2 reaches for a canister of matcha green tea)



After all the hype about matcha green tea, I really wanted to try it.  So, when I was afforded the opportunity to choose four sample selections of tea from the Full Leaf Tea Company, matcha green tea was one of my choices.  The company offered several varieties of matcha green tea, but I decided upon Organic Sweet Matcha Original.  This tea is a blend of organic cane sugar and premium matcha green tea from Japan.



It is a super fine tea, so I wondered how to properly infuse it, only to discover that this tea powder can be added as-is into a hot cup of water or a smoothie.  It's versatile like that.


Upon some research, I discovered that matcha green tea has a plethora of benefits:
  • promotes calm
  • loaded with antioxidants
  • increased energy levels
  • supports weight loss
These are just a few, but enough for me to be excited about trying it.  Now, I believe that having a couple of cups of matcha won't determine how it benefits the body, but this Full Leaf Organic Sweet Matcha Original was good enough to keep me trying.


Do you drink matcha green tea?  If so, what benefits have you noticed?

Disclaimer:  Although I was provided free samples of tea from the Full Leaf Tea company, these are my honest opinions of their tea.

  1. I have never tried matcha green tea. I do love green tea in general too particularly with its added health benefits!

  2. I'm going to have to give that a try and hopefully get someone else here to give it a try. : )

  3. I have never tried matcha since I don't like green tea —too bitter for me— but a friend of mine likes to make matcha snow cones and I once tried it. Didn't like it! Hopefully that sweet blend has a better taste and one day I'll come to appreciate it as it deserves. :-)
