Cold Brewed Matcha

Huge Tea Haul.

Had a wonderful day because I got a big box of tea dropped at my doorstep! The best part is that I wasn't expecting all the wonderful goodies inside from The Tea Spot.

Matcha?? I've always wanted to try it. I've heard so many good things. As you may know, because of it's pure form you can supposedly soak up much more of the antioxidants. Today I tried the matcha because I was so excited but keep a look out because I'll be doing a separate post for each tea!  

If you follow my on snapchat you probably saw my super goober videos about how excited I was when I got the matcha! I'm also totally in love with the little tin for the powder matcha. The cherry blossom design is beautiful!

I was so excited, I took a selfie.Β 

I was so excited, I took a selfie. 

The best part about this package is that it came with a cold brew water bottle. All I did was pour some matcha powder into cold water, closed the top and shook it up! Oh my, how delicious. I'm not sure where all ya'll are from but here in Maryland it feels like an oven, this cold matcha was so refreshing.

My first sip and I'm in love! I always try teas without any sweetener to really get all the aromas and subtleties but I do love to add honey to my tea. I didn't feel the same way about this cold brewed matcha. The flavor was so refreshing and kinda sweet on it's own.   

I have a hot brewed matcha kit on the way and I can't wait to try it and compare cold vs hot!

Do you want this matcha goodness in your belly? And this portable bottle so you can take this goodness everywhere with you?? You can totally get it here!

Here's a short video on how to use the bottle! 

I think next, I'll bake with the powder. Matcha cookies anyone??!
