Tea Review: Ceremonial Emerald Matcha by Midori Spring

What is Matcha? Matcha is a powdered form of green tea. It's the highest concentration of green tea you will ever drink. Because of this, the amount of antioxidants in Matcha are astronomical in comparison to normal green tea. (Nope. Not all antioxidants are created equal.) There are antioxidants called catechins, and they are more potent than any other antioxidant. Matcha has over 100x the amount of catechins than regular green tea.

And that's just the beginning. Matcha also has these amazing health benefits:

  • Due to the amino acid L-Theanine found in the leaves, which contributes to relaxation (minus the drowsiness), Matcha leaves you feeling extremely relaxed.
  • You're going to burn calories, since Matcha increases your metabolism.
  • Matcha will also increase your energy levels, thanks to the natural caffeine found in green tea.
  • It lowers your bad cholesterol and elevates your good cholesterol.
  • Once Matcha detoxifies your body, your immune system will thank you. Matcha removes toxins, as well as heavy metals. And as far as your immune system goes, Matcha contains high amounts of Vitamins A and C, Iron, Calcium, and Potassium.

The product came in two parts: one separate, sealed bag, and one tin. Since this product is USDA Certified Organic, I store it in the refrigerator to keep it as fresh as possible.

One of the great things about this specific Matcha is that I can bake with it, which means instead of drinking it, I could be eating it. In pancakes. In muffins. Heck, I could mix it in with some homemade ice cream, if I wanted!

Another great thing about this Matcha? It's also gluten-free, Kosher Certified, and Vegan Certified, with absolutely no GMO's.
