You have heard me rave about Matcha tea before. It has so many benefits, 137 times the antioxidants of regular green tea, calorie burning abilities, energy boost without any jitters, 1 serving of this item is as powerful as 10 servings of regular green tea…the lists goes on and on. Now, I would like to introduce you to ‘Ceremonial Grade’ Matcha. The team at Legend Organic provided me with a sample of their Ceremonial Grade Premium Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder. According to them, these are the most important aspects of a ‘Ceremonial Grade’ tea:
- A vibrant spring green color
- Masterfully blended for a delicate balance of sweetness and astringent flavors
- An aroma that is mild and sweet
I had my tea the traditional way, I added 1/2 teaspoon to a bowl along with 3 ounces of hot water and whisked until a foam appeared. The first thing I noticed is that the color was more vibrant than any other tea’s I have tried. While the taste was smooth, you will notice a definite bitterness upon your first taste. I find this experience is comparable to my first taste of coffee. I do add sweetener to my matcha, I especially like agave or honey. This was easy to mix and prepare, I had very few clumps left in my mug. This is a great brand, and I recommend you try it. You can find my Amazon review here. You can also purchase the tea here.
