I became interested in matcha after watching the tv programme, ‘the truth about superfoods’. I have been drinking green tea for many years and i wanted to try matcha. I have green tea teabags with matcha and that is quite drinkable. This green tea is an acquired taste, drinking it straight as a tea may not be for everyone but adding to smoothies is definitely worth a try. Matcha is an expensive product, due to the intensive harvesting and process by which they create the powder. This pot is good value and will last, the spatula provided is helpful. I am sold on the health benefits of matcha, i try to get as many antioxidant sources into my diet as possible.
I have bought bloom products for some time now. This is a great alternative to coffee and energy drinks. I mix with water, shake, and drink. I get a noticeable increase in energy and concentration.

This is clearly a very healthy choice of drink but i must confess that my only consideration when trying this was the taste. Unfortunately whilst i thought it was reasonably pleasant and i will probably finish the jar there is no chance whatsoever that i would purchase more, certainly not for its rather hefty selling price. I was hesitant before ordering this because i don’t particularly like the taste of grapefruit but this turned out to be no problem as the grapefruit flavour in this drink is fairly mild, making it taste fruity rather that grapefruity. Overall, i would rate this product no more than okay, as it is something that i will probably only drink occasionally, whenever the mood takes me, rather than daily as a substitute for my usual drinks of choice.
The main difference between this matcha product and other matcha products – and i have tried a few – is the taste. The grapefruit taste makes it bearable and after a few days, quote pleasant to drink. The price is no different than other premium brands, so i really can’t fault it.
This ‘tea shot’ is actually surprisingly nice. The taste is a concentrated green tea flavour with a slight hint of grapefruit. To make the shot you simply add 1/2 tsp of powder to 100ml hot water and mix it together thoroughly, then pour over ice to make an iced tea. It makes a great addition to smoothies and juices too but it is nice enough to drink on its ownthe shot is very green, think blended greens green, and cleanses the palate nicely. It is recommended to have 1 shot a day for optimal digestive results. It’s pretty effective at reducing bloating and you certainly feel as if you’ve done something healthy. The price isn’t crazy for what you get as with 1 shot a day this should last approx 2 months for one person. This is a really nice way to take in superfoods without feeling like you’re making an effort about it.
