This weeks feature friday has been a pleasure as always! I am always on the look out for the next big thing of the health world and the lovely people at Teapigs came to the rescue this week with the newest super hero on the block ‘organic matcha tea powder’
Ive been a fan of the green stuff for a while, my good friend from japan, first introduced me to it last summer, her mum sent over a bag and I was immediately in love, however, I haven’t had any since, until now, my prayers had been answered, answered by the scrumptious Teapigs!
What is Matcha,You say?
Well Matcha is an acient japanese tea, the original preparation and consumption of ground tea was formed into a ritual by zen buddhists long ago, blends of matcha were given poetic names ‘chamei’ (tea-names) by the plantation, shop or grandmaster of the tea ceremonies. These days the lovely people at Teapigs source their Matcha from the nishio regions of Japan, where leaves are grown undercover to create lots of super healthy amino acids and chlorophyll (the green goodness) they are then dried and ground using granite et voila! theres your super matcha!
So what is the verdict?
Having spent a week with this little green machine, it certainly does what it says on the tin, I had a shot in the morning before I left the house, took some in a flask to work with me,created a recipe with it … so you can pretty much say its a winner! You can feel it working immediately from the inside out,an energy boost that (although it hurts me to say it) feels cleaner than coffee, a buzz without any aftertaste or staining of the teeth. Being an avid espresso lover, I will always have my morning coffee with breakfast but teapigs organic matcha will most certainly be sticking around from now on to give me those amazing antioxidants it is so well renowned for
AND of course for me to make and create lots more yummy clean matcha inspired recipes for you all to enjoy using it! there are many ways to enjoy it, hot, cold, chilled or baked, iced, whipped, chuck it into all your favourite cereals and desserts…go matcha mad!
I give this feature a HUGE thumbs up! Thank you Teapigs for the goodies!
