My Mornings With Matcha Muscle. . . .

Just about every day I make a matcha smoothie to enjoy on my hour long commute from my house to taking my kiddos to school to work.  I’ve tried different variations of smoothie recipes.  Some turn out pretty amazing and others not so much.  I’ve found that having the right matcha really makes all the difference in the world. The other day I finally stumbled upon the perfect recipe for me: 1 teaspoon of Matcha Muscle 3 tablespoons of yogurt 2 tablespoons of psyllium husk (for additional fiber) 2 tablespoons of CACafe Coconut Green Tea Powder 1/2 can of canned Read More


Tea-Inspired Shamrock Shake using tea from Sportland Tea Co. . . . . .

This tea had been sitting in my to-be-reviewed pile for far too long, you guys. Every once in a while, I’d pass by, give it a sniff, smile at how yummy it smelled, then get distracted by something else and completely forget to brew it up (story of my life). Until the other day, I was struck by the siren song of March– the Shamrock Shake. You know exactly what I’m talking about. As soon as 3/1 rolls around, billboards are covered with larger-than-life pictures of delicious, neon green vanilla-mint-chemical-deliciousness, and it’s near impossible to resist them. That said, it’s Read More


Raspberry Matcha from Tea’s Me

There were a few days recently where winter temperatures let up and I was able to go out in the sun with fewer layers and coats. Sunny days like that really put you in the mind for spring. When the weather gets warmer, I trade in my hot morning cup of black tea for a refreshing cup of iced matcha green tea. Matcha teas come in powdered form and can be used in milk for frothy lattes, in smoothies for a healthy boost, or whisked in a bowl for a traditional style.  Raspberry matcha from Tea’s Me Company is pre-sweetened Read More


Original Matcha Latte from Sen Cha Naturals. . . . .

So far…I haven’t tried a product from Sen Cha Naturals I haven’t liked…or should I say…LOVED!? I figured it was about time I reviewed the Original Matcha Latte from Sen Cha Naturals. Original Matcha Latte from Sen Cha Naturals is what the company calls ‘a true original’ because of the classic green tea latte with their own personal twist as it ‘goes​ ​nuts for coconut!’ Original Matcha Latte from Sen Cha Naturals is perfectly creamy,​ while still being bright and vegetal at the same time. I agree with their website and product description that Original Matcha Latte from Sen Cha Read More

Endurance-Citrus Mint from Sportland Tea Co. . . A Unique Twist on Matcha

  Matcha has always been such a hit or miss tea for me. I either adore and devour the matcha (typically a latte) that I make or it is just way too vegetal for me. But this is the year I plan to step more and more outside of my comfort zone for tea, so I prepped up my water and set to checking this tea out properly. Endurance Citrus Mint is a blend of matcha, ginger, ginseng, and mint with a few other inclusions here and there. The mint is the aroma you really get when you first open Read More
