I was recently asked to give Organic Matcha – Green Tea Powder by KissMe Organics a try and provide a review.
I’ve heard a lot of my friends talk about Green Tea and it’s benefits, but I’ve never really tried got into it. The over the counter bottles of green tea always seemed to have a weird (but not unpleasant) aftertaste and well, it just never became a habit. Furthermore, I prefer coffee so drinking hot green tea just wasn’t doing it for me.
KissMe Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder is sold exclusively on Amazon.com and I was sent a packet along with a 70 page Organic Matcha Recipe Guide for a trial.
Here are the particulars about the Matcha Green Tea Powder:
ORGANIC MATCHA - GREEN TEA POWDER --THE ANCIENT SECRET TO BEAUTY, HEALTH AND LONGEVITY
USED FOR: LATTES | SMOOTHIES | BAKING
ALL DAY ENERGY WITH INCREASED FOCUS
Matcha provides 4 to 6 hours of mild steady energy as it acts as both a stimulant and a relaxant. This is ideal for focusing on whatever the day throws your way.
Consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis (the body's own rate of burning calories) from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy expenditure.
IMPROVED SKIN HEALTH
Scientists have discovered that Matcha Green Tea helps protect the skin from harmful UVrays, while improving blood flow and oxygen levels lifting the overall quality of the skin.
137x THE ANTIOXIDANTS OF BREWED GREEN TEA
Antioxidants are essential as you age to boost your body's natural defenses against oxidation. Researchers have found that a high level of dietary antioxidants can prevent many age-related diseases.
For a week, my daughter Erin and I made smoothie drinks…
…and they were DELISH!!! I used too much of the powder the 1st try (using a tablespoon when I should have been using a TEAspoon); however, I didn’t notice a difference in taste and there wasn’t any after taste. I did notice improved energy…I was doing 5:30am boot camp every morning and was not tired or sleepy hours later in the day once I drank my Matcha Smoothie. I was also STARVING and hour – hour and half after as well which might be a verification of the metabolism boost and the only way to ensure I didn’t gnaw my hand off was to add a touch of protein powder or have an egg along with my smoothie. I can’t say about the improved skin health – IMHO, my skin health was already awesome so…I’ll have to consume more and see if it gets even more so. I also like the idea of the 137x the antioxidants because as we all get older, you need to get those antioxidants in to get rid of the free radicals that build up in the body.
I enjoyed the product and will definitely add this to my wellness/fitness (and journey to better eating) routine.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
