BrandBacker: Culinary Grade Organic Matcha - Green Tea Powder
Recently I received Kiss Me Organic's Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder. I've always heard wonderful benefits from matcha green tea, such as boosting metabolism and improving skin health, and since I love trying out new tea products, I knew this would be a great opportunity to review this product. Read on to see how I thought of it, and how I made this Organic Matcha Green Tea Latte!
I was pleasantly surprised by the generously large size of this product, so I was overwhelmed with what to create first. Before I received the product, I got an email with several recipes that utilizes the matcha green tea, from desserts, to drinks, to savory chicken dinners. I started off with something simple because I already love my chai tea lattes and already had these ingredients.
The recipe, provided by the company and was included with this product, calls for these ingredients:
-1 teaspoon of Organic Matcha Green Tea powder
-1/4 cup of boiling water
-3/4 cup of boiled milk or milk substitute
-agave (but I only had honey, which was just as good)
I first boiled the water. Then I placed the matcha green tea in my mug, and poured my boiling water over it until it dissolved. Then I added about half a tablespoon of honey and microwaved soy milk (because who really takes the time to boil 3/4 cup of milk for one glass of a tea latte?) and added that to my mug and mixed it all together. Since it still tasted quite "matcha" and less "latte" I filled the rest of my mug with more warm soy milk, and it tasted great! I really wasn't too sure how I would feel about green tea lattes, but I've come to realize I really enjoy them! This product tastes like how I believe matcha tastes (as I've only remember trying matcha one other time), and since I've only tried this in a small quantity, I can't validate its benefit claims. However, I do look forward to trying out the different recipes it includes in the order, which helps figure out in what ways I can experiment with matcha besides just using it for regular green tea.
