Organic Yerba Mate Matcha Tea from The Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co. . .

I haven’t had too many Yerba Mate Matcha’s to date so I always welcome them when the come along. Recently I sipped on Organic Yerba Mate Matcha Tea from The Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co. In short, it was a pleasant sipping experience. But let’s expand on that a bit. I took 1 flat teaspoon of matcha to a tea bowl and mix with a couple of drops of water to make a smooth paste then whisked more water to fill my matcha cup. I followed the instructions on the company website. Personally – I could taste a Read More

Focus Vanilla Mint from Sportland Tea Co. . . .

This company has caught my eye before so I was very excited to finally try one of their teas. This company has blends geared towards athletes. I am an athlete I play volleyball regularly and am very active in general and I love tea so my interest is definitely peaked. This blend is called a Focus Blend since with the caffeine it would help you focus more. This blend is very simple with matcha, yerba mate, peppermint and vanilla. The smell surprisingly light not overly peppermint. It has a nice fresh smell, lightly grassy from the matcha. Once brewed the Read More

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

Ever Been Curious about Steeped Tea? Matcha Green Tea from Steeped Tea

Matcha Green Tea from Steeped Tea is straight-up matcha! That’s right…Green Tea Powder…as many of you already know! There really isn’t a LOT to say about Matcha Green Tea from Steeped Tea but I will certainly try. It’s a more mellow tasting matcha that is for sure. It’s smooth, too! The natural creaminess is nice! Matcha Green Tea from Steeped Tea smells like green beans and tastes like green beans. I guess one of the reasons I like straight-up matchas and like to spend some time with them is to see how they are alike but also differ. I’ve had Read More

Raspberry Matcha from Tea’s Me

Flavored Matcha. Yup! I will try just about any flavor. (As long as it’s vegan and this one is). So when I saw Raspberry Matcha from Tea’s Me I knew I had to spend some time with it. This not only has green matcha powder it also has natural raspberry flavor and pure cane sugar, too! I will say that I was able to taste the raspberry flavor AND the pure cane sugar right away. And I know this review will be a little backwards but I feel like I need to address the flavor right away this time around. Read More
