Ceremonial Emerald Matcha Green Tea Powder From Midori Spring Review


Midori_Spring_Matcha_Green_Tea.jpg
I try to incorporate tea into my diet because of the numerous health benefits of tea. Aside from being an effective anti-oxidant, it reduces stress helps with weight loss, improves metabolism and a lot more. Now when drinking tea, I don't like those which are too bitter. I haven't grown accustomed to the taste yet so I often add honey to my tea. One of the types of tea I prefer is the matcha green tea because it gives the same benefits of tea plus it has this natural sweetness and creaminess which I really like. When I received the Ceremonial Emerald Matcha Green Tea Powder from Midori Spring, I looked forward to trying it. Here is a quick product description from the company:

Midori Spring's Ceremonial Emerald Matcha 100g - is perfect for beginner matcha drinkers, and inspired chefs looking for better quality matcha powder compared to traditional cooking grade. Emerald Class is Chef’s Top Choice but is not a culinary grade matcha, therefore making it first rate for cooking and mixed beverages. Whichever way you choose to enjoy your Matcha, you can embrace the many health benefits it has to offer.

The Midori Spring's Ceremonial Emerald Matcha Green Tea arrived in a sealed tin can. The matcha green tea powder is packed in a separate sealed foil wrapper which is nice because it kept the matcha green tea powder fresh.

Upon opening the sealed foil wrapper, I instantly whiffed a scent of the matcha green tea. It smelled creamy and herbal at the same time. The powder has a dark green color (darker than the photo) and has a super fine texture (similar to a confectioner's sugar).

For every serving, I only use 1/2 teaspoon of the Midori Spring's Organic Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea. I like to make this with 6 ounces of non-fat milk because the milk enhances the creaminess of the matcha green tea. I like how this tasted because it has a hint of sweetness, earthiness and creaminess in it. There is a subtle bitter taste but that doesn't linger and produce a bitter aftertaste.

If prepared correctly, the matcha green tea powder dissolves easily and completely without forming any lumps. I like drinking this mid afternoon because it gives me energy without the jitters. It also keeps me full which is great so that I don't crave for afternoon snacks anymore.

  3. Does this need to be made with a specific matcha powder?
