Pleasant and tasteful brand of matcha. As a devotee of health foods, drinks and user of green tea, it was an easy decision to try this bloom mindpower matcha. I have read good and positive reports about the effects of matcha, in particular the antioxidant properties, it possesses,so it was an easy decision to try it. Firstly, it is i feel an acquired taste, although in the case of this type i found it a lot easier as ginger and ginseng are added,which not only gives it a distinct flavour, but i found more appealing. It may be consumed, with hot or cold water, although you can add it to fruit juice taking care to stir and mix it thoroughlyso the powder disperses. I became accustomed to the taste of this brand much quicker than the conventional matcha. I have made it part of my daily schedule to add to drinks, (i had it with lime juice and soda and it worked really well. I will update this review in due course to report on the effects of the drink one way or another. As with other drinks, capsules, and so forth which have benefits, it is in my view in the long term that you can finallydecide. I only drink fruit and green tea, so it was an easy move for me to take to enjoy this, but even if you don’t, it is easyto add to other drinks and you thereby get the goodness.
Bloom mindpower matcha (30g). This stuff is great, i can really feel a difference after taking it for over a month now. I have some first thing in the morning mixed into a smoothie, and i have also used it with just hot water to make a refreshing green tea pick-me-up.

Versatile tea for tea-drinkers – and fussbudgets – and it’s great for your health. . I have wanted to discover the benefits of green tea for a long time but just don’t like the taste of the stuff. I don’t even like regular tea. So having the opportunity to review this bloom matcha has been a great chance to try the best tea – without having to have a cuppa. I’ve been adding it to my daily smoothie and, like a few other healthy ingredients that taste lousy, its taste is blended into and masked by the fruit and i can enjoy the benefits without – well, without ending up letting it go cold and tipping it down the sink, ginger and ginseng notwithstanding. It adds a very nice little tweak to the normal flavour and i do feel it is making a small but positive difference to my energy levels and focus. Hopefully time will tell if it is a permanent improvement but it is a good start.
Prefer a pot of good quality green tea leaves. I’ve drunk green tea for many years – it’s a staple of my diet from early morning to late afternoon. However, i usually buy leaves and brew up a pot – this was my first proper foray into the world of matcha. Given all the focus on the health benefits of matcha at the moment i was pleased to be able to try a tub. The first point is, it’s a bit of a faff – match 4 spatulas into some hot (but not boiling) water and then whisk. The whisking is to make it frothy, and it takes a bit of work to get the right consistency. I then followed the suggestion to pour over ice and mix in some cold water to make a refreshing drink. To be honest – it just tasted like luke warm green tea, without a particularly strong flavour (certainly the ginger and ginseng don’t seem to be identifiable). Drunk as a regular green tea, it does the job but to be honest i don’t think it compares with a really good quality green tea leaf which you can get for a comparable price, plus you have the hassle of whisking.
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. It does contain ginger which spices it up somewhat and no doubt helps mask the basic flavour but i like it. I will definitely be getting this one again. I probably could save a bit of money by getting a lesser brand and adding the other basic ingredients but, you know – lazy.
BLOOM Mindpower Matcha (30g) : Delicious tea, but unjustly expensive. I’ve been drinking matcha green tea for a while now, and am convinced of its benefits (improved and stable energy levels, and my complexion is generally brighter when drinking it)however, i have never really been mad on the flavour. I find the grassy/ algae like taste not “unpleasant”, but not exactly enjoyable either. I wouldn’t sit down with a cup and be all like “mmmmm, pond-y tea”. I just drink it because i think its doing me good. When given the opportunity to try this one i jumped at the chance; largely because i hadn’t seen one before with ginger in (i love the taste of ginger), but partly as i was running out of my pot so the timing was great ;-)on opening, the tea is a fine powder and looks good quality, and the smell is light and fresh. When made up, ive found its a little darker than and not as vibrant as my usual brand (purechimp) – and doesnt froth as much – though that doesnt really bother me. What is a striking difference is the taste. The ginger is strong, but is – i found – extremely refreshing, uplifting and warming. Over ice with a bit of lemon its delicious, but is just as pleasant as a morning drink in place of coffee or tea. This one i would sit down with and go “mmm”additionally, i used this while suffering indigestion following a slightly overindulgent (read “stuff-your-face like you’ve never seen food before”) bbq, and im sure it helped calm my stomach (ginger is generally recognised as a digestive aid)the jar contains 30 servings, which at around 56p a drink makes it a very expensive purchase (its nearly three times the price of purechimp for example, which is pure ceremonial grade matcha tea and works out at 20p a drink) – but this is the nicest tea i’ve ever tried. Because of the current price (£16. 98 for 30g vs £20 for 100g of purechimp – my usual brand) it is highly unlikely i will swap to bloom full time, but i will certainly consider buying a jar when this runs out to have as an alternative now and again.
