At the start of New Year I wrote a little post about taking the teapigs matcha challenge (you can read it here) So two weeks later what did I think?
OK, so firstly making matcha is the best fun ever! it's a ritual I loved doing each day, I would look forward to how I would prepare it. Things got pretty adventurous! Matcha lattes, matcha shots, matcha coconut water, added to various herbal teas (the teapigs lemon and ginger worked well) and smoothies to name a few.
When reading about matcha it really sounded too good to be true, the information stated all the benefits like being energizing yet calming, increasing your metabolism, clearing your skin, increasing your focus and being jam packed with goodies like antioxidants and nutrients, the list goes on and on!
Personally I have to agree! I honestly found this stuff amazing, not only did I feel a big difference other people noticed things like my skin looking clearer, which is always a good thing. I have even convinced some family and friends to give it a try after sharing my experience.
I decided to try the matcha out when my husband was working away for two weeks and I was home alone our 5 year old and 6 month old kiddos, I truly put it to the test!
When it comes to the taste I enjoyed it, but could see how some people may not. Think earthy, very strong green tea. By experimenting with it you could still add it into your daily routine if it was a flavour you didn't really have a taste for, smoothies, adding to food and lattes really diluted the flavour of the matcha.
I loved taking this challenge, matcha will certainly be added to my tea collection and something I continue to drink it daily.
Have you tried matcha, is it something you would try? and if you have how are your favourite ways to add it to your diet daily?

I just want to add this is my own personal experience and opinion, I wouldn't share something with you I wasn't truly on board with!
