Here's Why I'm Trending with Matcha Green Tea Powder

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Are you ready for my jumping on the bandwagon trend confessional? I promise that in the end I will not be solicited or soliciting an appearance on one of those prime time reality TV episodes. My bandwagon is definitely cruising along in the slow lane. Not meriting a casting call from even the most questionable of film crews. I dared to steep a cup of Organic Matcha Culinary Grade Green Tea Powder from Kiss Me Organics and I'm in. I'm riding in good company, trending on the Green Tea Matcha bandwagon. Almost everyone has that one thing that you absolutely must have or do if there is any hope at all of your functionality.   My daily necessity is without a doubt, tea.  I delight in a steamy cup on cooler days and an icy glass when the temperature gets the best of me. I'm open to the newest varieties and trends in the tea drinking community and this is an appropriate segue into my Green Matcha Tea. 

Matcha is Japanese in origin and in most cases a very finely ground green tea consisting of  whole tea leaves that are covered before picking to accentuate the color.  The tea leaves are then vigorously ground by stone into a dusty powder after being picked and before being carefully packaged.  Matcha tea is widely enjoyed in Asia, as well as the Western Hemisphere, tea drinkers prefer to drink steamy cups of Matcha because of an inclination toward the unmistakably "green" chlorophyll flavor of the tea leaf which some find to be comparable to grass or spinach, in addition to the reported health benefits.  The wellness benefits of regular consumption of organic Matcha which is antibacterial in nature and high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants also includes the strengthening your body's immune system, lowering of blood pressure and cholesterol, aids in digestion and is considered to provide anti-aging effect among other calming and detoxification perks.

With a vast assortment of recipes and recommendations for use of Matcha ranging from the highly traditional cup of steeped tea to those trendy frothy lattes and even as the next best baking ingredient, I chose to steep my tea.  I added approximately a teaspoon of Matcha Green Tea powder into a cup with a third of a cup of hot not boiling water.  Then proceeding to stir the tea powder moderately with a bamboo whisk or spoon to mix the tea.  Sediments of the powder will remain in a foam or froth which is to be expected of Matchas and safe to drink if  desired.  USDA Certified Organic Matcha is very pure and natural with no fertilizers, pesticides, chemicals or other toxins. While Traditional Green Tea Matcha is certainly an acquired taste, the reported health benefits to tea drinkers is appealing to a growing population. Are you ready to trend with Organic Matcha?
