Bloom Teas London BLOOM Brainboost Matcha 30 g, Matcha made in heaven

Pleasant, tasteful drink full of goodness. As an enthusiastic health foods, drinks and user of green tea, it was an easy decision to make to try this bloom brainboost matcha. I have read good reports and reviews about the health properties of matchain this type it is infused with acai and ginkgo biloba and for me it is more flavoursome than the ordinary matcha. With this flavour i do not feel it is acquired taste-i think it is tasteful and pleasant straight from the off. A smidge grassybut the extra flavour of acai, makes it a pleasant drink with goodness. It may consumed in hot or cold water taking care to whisk it thoroughly, before adding. Follow the instructions, whiskingto a sort of frothy finish. I have added this to my daily routine of health foods, and it certainly makes you feel better. At this stage of course i cannotgive you long term evidence of the health benefits, but i am persuaded, and i will update you in a future review. I only drink fruit and green tea, so drinking the matcha was not a huge transition for me, but even if you don’t you shouldfind it easy as you can add the powder to other drinks, or in this case on it’s own.

Highest quality matcha tea powder with 25% additives (acai berry and ginkgo biloba). Bloom brainboost matcha (30 g)“great taste’ is the usp of bloom matcha teas, with each variety having different additives to enhance the flavour; three of the varieties won great taste awards in 2014. I’ve tried several different bloom matcha teas. I am a bit dubious about the somewhat mysterious additives to this otherwise highest quality (organic japanese ceremonial grade matcha) health supplement (see below). On drinking the product, there have been different responses in the family ranging from “stewed black tea” to “the best tea i’ve ever tasted”, with the overall impression being positive. I hadn’t heard of matcha until i saw it a recent tv programme on whether so-called ‘superfoods’ were worth buying. The overall verdict was no (because the same benefits can be obtained from ordinary foods), but matcha did get positive lab results because it is high in anti-oxidants (the black tea found in regular teabags got good results too, but to a lesser extent). Therefore i was pleased to give this flavoured matcha tea product a try. === varieties ===* brain boost – there’s no noticeable additional aroma or taste to this variety, which tastes to me like the most delicate green tea. Contains 15% acai berry and 10% ginkgo biloba* mojito – there’s a fresh aroma of peppermint that floats up from the bowl (or cup) as you whisk the tea and, on tasting, there’s just a subtle hint of peppermint with a barely perceptible hint of lime.

This is a great quality matcha powder. This is a great quality matcha powder, you can really taste the difference between this and some of the cheaper brands that i’ve tried. A half tea spoon whisks well into a small mug of hot water giving a lovely froth for a mid afternoon pick me up, i much prefer this to a coffee in my attempt to avoid the jitters i get from a strong coffee. Make it up with cold water, over ice for a refreshing alternative drink. It’s also an unusual addition to smoothiesvery much recommended.

  1. Matcha – not the best quality i have had. I haven’t been too impressed with the quality, compared with other brands i have tried. I will continue to use it, but unlikely to re-purchase.

    My first try with matcha and i am very positively impressed. My days are currently very stressful but i am now really able to arrive at the end of the day with a much better state of mind and feeling not stressed at all. I have also completely ended coffee consumption and it is good as coffee was causing me stomach problems. Usually i have the matcha with the yogurt or in milk using an aeroccino and it is fantastic in both ways.

    Having tried the supercharge matcha i was intrigued to try this version. I tried as per the suggestion to make an iced tea which tasted less grasslike than the other version. It was handy that my kettle can heat water to 80 degrees so i could make it exactly as suggested. I think it has a similar effect to a cup of coffee but with natural ingredients so i am pleasantly surprised with this and it seems to mix into hot water easier than cold. I will also be happy to add to soups as the taste is quite nice.

    Good quality matcha tea powder. Good quality matcha tea powder. Taste is quite mild, but still reasonably aromatic. As well as tea, i tried a little of it to make my absolute favourite matcha ice cream and it turned out very well. Only reason for the 4 starts is that i think you can get better value from other bands.

    Good quality green tea, with added “brainboost”. Rather good quality green tea with a few added “brainboost” ingredients, the benefits of which i’m a little suspicious of, but they seem to do little to alter the taste (which is grassy and slightly bitter – perhaps an acquired taste). It’s not a very big pot for the price, although i understand that matcha is in general very expensive.

      1. Literally just ok – as far as green teas go, this one has a softer, more mellow flavour (definitely less bitter/ algal tasting than some others). Its far from unpleasant, but i wouldnt say i enjoyed it as much as the ginger or mojito versions (which pack a lot more flavour)however, in terms of any “brain boost” benefits; im yet to experience any. I dont even think i felt more “buzzy” than i do when i have my morning coffee. So as an alternative hot drink its ok, but i very much doubt i’ll be buying a refill.

    1. Acai berries and gingko biloba. This is the brain boost matcha. The addition of acai berries gingko biloba gives the matcha a very subtle last of fruit. Matcha brainboost is considered ideal for mornings and is an all natural cognitive support. I mix the matcha in cold bottled water with a small metal whisky thing and it works well. The taste of fruit is fleeting. It is more pleasant than not. I drink it fast and feel better for drinking it. I look forward to having some of this or the matcha brain power and see if my brain begins to power up a little. I recommend this as a morning drink.

    A very pleasant and easy to prepare cuppa. I have been drinking this tea for a week now and whilst i can’t claim that my cognitive functions have been boosted, i am enjoying the different caffeine kick that is normally get from a cup of (weak) coffee. Bloom’s brainboost matcha contains organic japanese matcha with acai berry and ginkgo biloba – all recognised as being ‘good’ for you. The packaging says it’s ideal for morning and it is. I didn’t read the packaging beyond the basic instructions (as usual) so drank my first cup in the evening; it contains more caffeine than i’d imagined so stuck to mornings after thatthe instructions tell you to add 4 spatula scoops (spatula provided) to 100ml hot water. I found i scooped different amounts each time so used my 1/2 tsp measuring spoon (although i guess you really don’t need to be that accurate. The instructions tell you to whisk to a frothy head but the only whisk i have wouldn’t fit in a teacup so i just stir generously.The taste is subtle; grassy perhaps but i like it and if you like a weak cup of tea you too will like it.

    1. Refreshing matcha tea now with brain boosting support. Matcha is a very healthy green tea powder which helps refresh and revitalise you in ways that regular tea doesn’t. Like green tea whilst it’s definitely not unpleasant it takes a little getting used to the taste before you start to appreciate, the smell is not unlike dried grass. I take this at different times of the day depending my mood and needs. This variety features ginkgo biloba and acai berry to help support and enhance cognitive functions. Its simple to make just add some hot water to to about one teaspoon or four (of the provided) spatula fulls of the matcha powder and it’s ready to drink. I love this refreshing drink and would recommend you try it.

  12. Bloom’s brainboost matcha on its own this tastes like grass, but mixed with something, this becomes a flexible supplement, and can be mixed into salads or added to tea or made into an instant green tea, (as with all green teas don’t use boiling water it makes the tea bitter water has to be around 80 degrees. As to the brain boosting properties i am not sure after a week i still have problems writing reviews for this kind of product. Ok product but possibly an overpriced placebo.

    1. This is a green powder, which makes a drink – which tastes like green tea. It is billed as a brain boost. I must admit, i felt very alert after drinking this, green tea will have that effect. You are recommended to use four scoops or half a teaspoon. I found one scoop was around a quarter of a teaspoon, so only used two scoops. It didn’t fully dissolve though, so i did find there was some residual powder in the bottom of my glass. I wasn’t that fond of the taste. Like green tea, it has a bitter edge; i prefer my green tea with a hint of lemon. But i’m looking forward to using this in baking, as it can make some fantastic cakes.

    1. This is at the higher end pricewise for matcha but i think it is the best i’ve had mainly down to the reduced bitterness when compared to other brands. A green, not bitter and basic flavour, a bit like spinach but i like it. I will definitely be getting this one again.

  15. Brain boost green matcha tea. I tried the bloom absolute matcha (30g) originally and have been pleased to have the opportunity to try others in the range. This version has acai berry and gingko bilboa added to the matcha powder. I used to drink matcha tea as part of my daily routine so i have the bamboo whisk, which may seem like overkill but is very effective at mixing and frothing this vibrant green tea. I’ve now had the chance to sample more than one of the bloom brand match teas and i’m happy with all of them. Green tea does contain anti-oxidants, so it may well be worth acquiring the taste for your health. I have no idea whether ace berry and gingko will have a positive effect on my cognitive function but i’m happy to give it a go. After drinking mainly rooibos tea for years now it’s been giving me a caffeine boost, for sure. This is a quality matcha tea and i don’t notice any real change in last between this and the standard ceremonial grade so i’m happy to take a chance i’ll be increasing my cognitive powers.

      1. Alert without coffee perfect. . I don’t know about brain boost, it did seem to freshen me up. Makes you a little more alert. This would be ideal for heart patients i’m guessing, please check with your doctor.

    My review pack of tea had no instructions apart from what is written on the jar. I read elsewhere that the tea should be whisked to a froth, i whisked and whisked but nothing happened . However i was pleasantly surprised by the tea because frankly i expected it to be unpleasant. I’ve tasted a lot worse teas, i found it almost bland and tasteless in fact. I normally have decaffeinated tea and coffee, it may be my imagination but i thought my heart rate increased a little and i’m going to treat this as the equivalent of a shot of espresso – but with a multitude of added health benefits. I’m going to have a little cup before difficult meetings and stressful situations, and i have every faith in the product. I will probably drink it cold as recommended on the jar, as i think it tastes better that way.
