I love green tea. I was first introduced to it back when I was pregnant with Kyla (2006) and I instantly fell in love with it. So given the chance to review Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder I was thrilled but also a little nervous because I haven’t ever used it before besides drinking it in tea bag form. So, this would not only be new to me but a challenge I was up for!
What is Matcha Green Tea?
Matcha green tea is used for drinking as a tea or can be used as an ingredient in baking and recipes. Which I will show you below.
What are the benefits to using Matcha Green Tea Powder?
All day energy and focus, Calorie Burning Booster, UP TO 137x ANTIOXIDANTS OF BREWED GREEN TEA: USDA Organic Matcha Green Tea can only be used in a powdered form because, unlike brewed green tea, it contains the entire tea leaf which dramatically increases the nutritional content.
Why Kiss Me Organics?
Harvested from a family-run tea farm in operation since 1915. The farm has been certified organic since 2000, synthetic chemical free since 1994, and reduced chemical usage since 1975. Now you can enjoy great quality Matcha from the place it all began – Japan. Kiss Me Organics is USDA certified organic which means harmful fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides have not been dumped on the plants used for making Matcha Green Tea Powder – and will not make it into your body. You can read all about this here.
Reading the back of the package I was thrilled to see BAKING with a photo of a cupcake! I love baking and I usually use the same ol’ frosting recipes and that can get boring. I knew as soon as I saw this that I wanted to try my hand at frosting some cupcakes using the Matcha, so that’s what I did! (you can also use the powder in smoothies, lattes, other drinks and countless other recipes)
I was a bit skeptical at first but it turned out absolutely wonderful. Even the kids loved the taste. It’s not too sweet, or overly bitter. It’s just right. The color wasn’t too weird to turn the kids off (because we know how they all feel about GREEN anything!) They actually probably liked it more than I did. The taste is not overpowering, and the amount of powder needed is very low.
It was fairly easy to create the frosting. Kiss Me Organics provides one complimentary PDF Matcha Recipe Guide with 50+ Recipes upon receiving the product too! You will get a little note card instructing you where to find it! I am curious about some other recipes so I will be checking out how else I can use my Matcha Green Tea Powder.
Not only do you get a great tasting cupcake but you also get the added benefits of Endurance and next level concentration. Something in which I’m sure we could all use from time to time. Obviously as with any tasty treat moderation is key and you don’t want to over do it, but enjoying one or two with a nice hot cuppa tea or hot chocolate would be a fabulous and healthy choice!
