White Matcha Tea from Red Leaf Tea Review

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

If you know me, then you know that I am a tea-aholic. I seriously am. I drink hot tea several times a day, everyday, despite how hot or cold it is outside. I just love it so much. My favorites are both white tea and green tea.

I was sent a free bag of White Matcha from Red Leaf Tea to try out and review.

What is White Matcha?
For those of you who have never heard of matcha--it is normally associated with green tea. However, Red Leaf Tea has decided to make a white matcha. It is made the same way as green matcha because the leaves are stone ground into a powder form. It is 100% pure, with no preservatives, no MSG/chemical additives, no artificial coloring, and no sweeteners.
It's very simple to prepare. You can heat the water up, not boiling, but very hot, and then just mix in 1/2 a teaspoon- 1 teaspoon of the matcha powder.
It's kind of like mixing hot cocoa or some instant coffee. Just keep stirring till it's all dissolved.

Do you know the health benefits of white matcha?
  • Help you maintain a beautiful complexion
  • Decreases fine lines and wrinkles
  • Has the tiniest bit of caffeine (1% caffeine content of coffee)
  • High antioxidant count which kills free radicals that are in your blood stream
  • Helps reduce the risk of certain cancers

What I thought about the product

I honestly liked it. It has become one of my favorite things to drink every day.
It looked a little muddy when I mixed it into the water, which made me slightly nervous to try it at first, but I'm happy I tried it. I can't really get enough of it now. I keep drinking it throughout the day. It's very flavorful. It is a little malty. I love that it doesn't have a bitter taste. It's actually very slightly sweet. It tastes great solo but sometimes I also like to add some honey or combine it with another tea. Also, there was a suggestion on their page about adding milk to make it into a matcha latte. I don't drink milk, so I added a little bit of vanilla soy milk and it tasted great! You can throw some ice in a shaker, shake the prepared matcha, milk or soy milk, and ice all together, and then top with whip cream! Yummy!--- I need to try this, actually.

My only complaint, and it's very minor--If you do order a bag, do make sure to tap it for a while so that the powder sits at the bottom. I guess I didn't do this too well because when I opened up the little pouch some of the powder spilled out... Just make sure to open the bag slowly.

They have different bag sizes available as well as different flavors. I received a small 30g bag and can tell you that it will be gone very soon because I keep using it. Looks like I'm going to have to be ordering up a bigger bag ASAP.

This company also has several varieties of teas available if you're not into matcha.

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.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’
