Review time (don’t usually do these)!
I’ve always found it a bit bitter, but really wanted to like green tea, because of its many health benefits. And it was because of this desire (and the fact that I’m trying to be healthy just now) that I decided to review it.
They sent me a cute little baggie of it (like receiving green cocaine in the mail!), with some info. Apparently only 1/2 teaspoon of this bright green powder was enough for one mug of hot green tea, though it can also be added to juices and milk for a latte, etc! Intriguing.
It recommends a good swift mixing, and I did find that if I let it sit for a while the powder did sink to the bottom, so follow the instructions and mix it up well with a small bit of boiling water first before topping it up.
It is very, well, green! Surprisingly so. And I was pleasantly surprised to see that one cup of teapig matcha is the same as drinking 15 cups of regular green tea. I mean honestly! That’s super impressive.
And as for the taste? Very smooth. Very mild. And not bitter or unpleasant at all. I could see myself drinking this, maybe even with a little honey added. So I recommend it!
Prices range from £25-£50, which seems rather steep I know, but you only use half a teaspoon at a time, so it shouldn’t run out too quick.
