Sponsored Review: White Matcha Tea from Red Leaf Tea #matcha

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 

Dear Readers:

 I read a lot of blogs and online magazine articles concerning health and well-being. I am always looking for products to try that are delicious, nutritious and fun to make.  I drink a lot of coffee and a lot of tea, so I was excited to try White Matcha from Red Leaf Tea.  My package of White Matcha included :

  • 30 g of white matcha
  • An instruction card with various ways to enjoy the tea
  • A booklet with the various flavors of matcha (yum)

So what is Matcha, and how do you make it? Here is more information from the Red Leaf company:

  "Usually when you hear the word Matcha, you automatically think about Green Tea. Well, we have put a spin on the Matcha name and technique with our White Matcha. White Matcha is made in exactly the same way as regular Green Tea Matcha is made: stone ground to a fine powder. But we have done it with White Tea.

  Why would we offer you a White Matcha? For people who like Matcha Tea in its original form as a Green Tea, you know how flavorful and pure it is. We want to give that to all tea lovers. Whether you like Green Tea, Black Tea, White Tea or any other kind of tea, we want you to experience the Matcha in different flavors.

 What does stone grinding do for tea leaves? It is quite simple. This is special process that does not take away from the flavor or take away any of the health benefits of original tea leaves. Basically with the stone grinding process, you are getting the highest quality tea in its purest form outside of just having straight from the tea tree. It is simple and straightforward, leaving tea leaves with tons of flavor and amazing healthful qualities.

 White Tea has some wonderful qualities to help maintain good health. In essence, White Matcha contains those same qualities with a purer taste. The health benefits of White Matcha include:

  • High antioxidant count to kill free radicals in the blood stream
  • Reduces the risk of certain types of cancer
  • Decreases fine lines and wrinkles in the skin
  • Helps maintain a beautiful complexion
  • Has only one percent (1%) caffeine content of coffee
  As you can see, there are many great qualities of White Matcha  that will help you everyday. 

What is the flavor of amazing White Matcha? Its flavor is quite mild with a vague natural sweetness. It is lightly malty and does not have a grassy taste like some teas do. White Tea is delicate with a slight perfume-like taste.

 White Matcha is a great tea and our White Matcha is of the best quality and is one of the most competitively priced. We offer many varieties of Matcha Tea for you to enjoy. Try us today and you will not go back to any of the other tea companies again."

So how did I make my Matcha ?

 I followed the directions under Best (good, better, best ) and made an icy matcha treat with coconut/almond milk and ice. YUM.  It came out like this:

There are so many flavors of matcha that I really want to try including chocolate and caramel, yum. In the meantime, I will enjoy my white and green matchas :)

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
