Kiss Me Organics Organic Matcha Culinary Grade Green Tea Powder Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. We received this product free from Kiss Me Organics to facilitate this review. Affiliate links may be in this post. Thank you for supporting this blog.

Kiss Me Organics Organic Matcha is a wonderful culinary grade green tea powder that can be mixed into lattes, smoothies, baking, and so much more! *It is a great natural energy booster, focus and memory enhancer, calorie burner, and is an antioxidant that promotes health and longevity. The recommended daily serving is 1/2-1 tsp and comes in a 4 oz (113g) bag that is resealable with a zipper top. This nutrient rich Matcha is free from chemicals and preservatives, the only ingredient is 100% pure Organic Matcha.

  • ALL DAY ENERGY WITH INCREASED FOCUS: Matcha provides 4 to 6 hours of mild steady slow release of energy as it acts as both a stimulant and a relaxant. This is ideal for focusing on whatever the day throws your way.
  • METABOLISM BOOST: Consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis (the body's own rate of burning calories) from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy expenditure.
  • IMPROVED SKIN HEALTH: Scientists have discovered that Matcha Green Tea helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays, while improving blood flow and oxygen levels lifting the overall quality of the skin.
  • 137x THE 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. Antioxidants are essential as you age to boost your body's natural defenses against oxidation. Researchers have found that a high level of dietary antioxidants can prevent many age-related diseases.
The Kiss Me Organics Organic Matcha has a wonderful grassy flavor that is not that sweet on its own. This product is best used mixed with other things, not as a stand alone tea. I love the flavor in all kinds of things. If you go searching Pinterest or Google search you will see there are a large number of ways to incorporate this product in your cooking and preparation of food and drink.

The Kiss Me Organics Organic Matcha also comes with a downloadable and printable 70 page Organic Matcha Recipe Guide from Kiss Me Organics that is emailed to you upon purchase. This recipe booklet has 50+ recipes to get your creative juices flowing. I made up the following recipes of my own with the use of the Matcha and inspiration of the recipe booklet.
