Then, my doctor recommended I try matcha green tea.
Besides actually upping my energy some, there were other benefits from the tea.
I noticed myself paying more attention in class.
And then... there was the serious detox that came with it.
Which brings me to the present.
I was able to try the Midori Spring's Ceremonial Gold Matcha for free in exchange for my honest opinion. Since I was familiar with it, I knew what to expect in terms of both flavor and benefits.
However, what I forgot was the normal amount to consume! And boy did I take a beating.
You see, like I said above, the matcha tea is a GREAT way to detoxify your body. So, it's a great laxative. Instead of taking, say 1/4 of a teaspoon like I should have to begin with, I took a whole teaspoon. I regretted it immediately.
My doctor had specifically told me to work my way up with the green tea. It's a powerful tool, so beware how much you take the first time!
Because the tea is extremely bright green, one might expect the flavor to be really rich. However, this tea is just slightly bitter. That's why I typically mix it with a bit of milk (water works fine too) and use a bamboo whisk with it! You can add sugar if you like, or even things like cinnamon!
I typically use a large mug or bowl and stir the matcha around really well. It's typically a little bit clumpy but that seems to be normal with the matcha I've tried. When you start to whisk, you need to go at it pretty good! ;)
When it's nice and frothy, you can enjoy your tea and the energy and wellness it brings. Awesome, right? I think so.

Are you big on drinking tea? What's your favorite kind?
