So, now I have been having some teapigs matcha every day for the past 2 weeks.
I don’t mind the flavour in water, but I prefer it in milk (usually almond milk). I had some chocolate almond milk and I enjoyed it in that for several mornings, but my favourite milk was the Rebel Kitchen chocolate mylk- it is so thick and creamy and frothed so well too.
I also tried it stirred into porridge. No, it did not look pretty, but I had it with some mince pie filling and it was lovely.
Now, I have no idea whether the matcha has given me extra energy- of course I am not a scientific test, but I have been feeling good these past few weeks. Partly this is due to finally getting rid of that cough (I do keep on about it, but seriously I felt so awful when I had it that I just feel miles better), but my running has been going well, even with the increased distance, and going back to work after the Christmas holidays.
So, I suppose the question is, would I keep having it? The short answer is yes, especially at the moment as I have some left in the tin. I am still pondering how to use some in baking, so if you have any recommendations let me know please.
The powder is quite expensive, but then the tin will last a while. I think it would be something that I would not have all the time, but might treat myself to every now and then.
Would you be tempted to try it?
I was given a teapigs discount code to share with everyone- the code is RUNNING and is valid until the end of Feb 2015 for 10% off (excludes matcha kits, pick & mix, cheeky deals and subscribe and save).
*I was sent the matcha kit in exchange for reviewing it on my blog. All opinions are my own. The discount code is just that- I do not receive any benefits from the link.
