Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder From Kiss Me Organics + GIVEAWAY

A few weeks ago, I was very kindly given the opportunity to try organic matcha green tea, which was very exciting for me since I am a huge fan of tea, and I kept hearing great things about matcha. I was sent a coupon code to order a 4oz (113g) of organic matcha green tea powder from Kiss Me Organics via Amazon, and I received my order in a matter of days.

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 - in fact, it contains 137x antioxidants of brewed green tea! It goes without saying that matcha green tea has a lots of benefits: it lifts your vitality and concentration with the slow release natural energy and it support your weight loss goals with an all-natural way to increase your body's metabolism. Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder arrives in an easy-to-use airtight health grade packaging allowing for as much or as little use as you need for any occasion. You can enjoy a relaxing latte in the morning, bake a dozen cupcakes or simply add a small boost to your morning smoothie.

As mentionned above, matcha can be prepared as a tea or used as an ingredient. I only tried it as a tea, and I must admit that at first, I was a bit intimidated by the whole process since it was completely new to me, but a good friend walked me through it and in the end I laughed at myself because it was quite easy! The traditional process is not much different from preparing brewed tea, except that after adding hot water, you will have to whisk vigorously in a zigzag motion until the tea is frothy. Apparently, matcha ca also be prepared in a cup (add a few drops of hot water to matcha powder and mix into a paste with spoon, then add more hot water to paste mixture and stir). Since then, I have prepared matcha myself a few times, but I still can't get it to completely dilute into water - I guess that's why it tastes a bit chalky, but it is still very tasty! It is definitely different from anything I have tried before. Now I really want to try baking muffins with this powder!

Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder is available for $29.00 From Kiss Me Organics via Amazon.

The generous folks over at Kiss Me Organics also wanted to give the chance to one of Gaby's Beauty Blog reader to try their Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder! Good luck! (US and Canadian residents only).
