Blueberry Matcha Green Tea from Simpson & Vail. . . . .

I’ve had my eye on Simpson & Vail’s Blueberry Matcha Green Tea for a while. Guess what? We finally got our hands on it! YAY! It was well worth the wait, too! Matcha, Blueberry Flavor, and Cane Sugar are the 3 ingredients in Blueberry Matcha Green Tea from Simpson & Vail. One of the most important things I need to mention in this review is that the use of the cane sugar is perfectly done. Many flavored matchas tend to over do it with the sugar or sweetener. Not Simpson & Vail! They used this cane sugar to accompany NOT Read More

Genmai-Matcha Matsujirushi from Steepster. . . .

Steepster is a website for tea lovers. If you are not on the website and you love tea, I recommend joining immediately because ultimately it is what fueled my love of all things tea and introduced me to the world beyond DAVIDsTEA and Teavana. It is essentially a forum to connect with other tea lovers, write tea reviews, and discuss all things tea. It is through this site that I met wonderful friends, experienced tea swaps, and discovered traveling teaboxes, which is how I came across this tea. For those who don’t know what a traveling teabox is, it is Read More

Gingerberry from Sportland Tea Co. . . . .

I’m a fan of Sportland Tea Co. I recently tried their Endurance Blend, which is matcha and citrus and I really loved the flavor, and the way it made me feel, so I was very excited to try the Gingerberry tea. The tea is green in it’s dry form, and then after brewing it becomes reddish from the hibiscus. This blend has matcha, ginger root, Hibiscus, ginseng, lemongrass, lemon balm, cinnamon and orange peel. I usually prefer hibiscus tea iced, and I will definitely be making this over ice next time, but to be honest it’s pretty tasty warm.  The Read More

Maple Matcha from DAVIDsTEA. . . . .

I am a huge fan of matcha. I drink a matcha latte every morning. I take two-three matcha-spoonfulls (.5tsp each) and mix it with a little over a half cup of hot water, using a matcha bamboo whisk. Then I add it to a glass of hot milk and add a tbsp of agave to sweeten it up. Mega yum! Matcha gives me a great energy boost and it also has a lot of health benefits which makes me happy. Back in the fall I was a huge fan of DAVIDsTEA’s Pumpkin Pie Matcha. It was so good! So, when 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
