Midori Spring Matcha green tea~ product review
Midori Spring Matcha green tea powder is certified organic, premium, top grade ceremonial gold class green tea. It is said to have many health benefits, such as: "reducing stress and improving mental alertness, improving metabolism and helping with weight loss, boosting the immune system and helping to reduce inflammation and to cleanse the body of impurities".
What did I think? It tastes like drinking seaweed. It must be an acquired taste. Don't get me wrong, I like all kinds of teas. I found this green tea to be so strong in taste, I actually doubled the amount of water and it was still dark emerald green and rich with that taste, with or without sweetener. I want to give it more of a try, so I've tried drinking it a couple of days now. It's not tasting any better. But what I have discovered is that you can also use it in recipes. You can find many on the Midori Springs website, or Youtube. Here's one for a Starbucks Green Tea Latte Dupe.
Would I purchase it myself? No, not at the hefty price tag of about $30.00 for 30 grams. Even if it does have great health benefits. This one's hard to swallow. Really.
