One of the things I missed about blogging during these weeks at the new job, is writing about all the wonderful product samples that I received over the holidays.
One of which was the Matcha DNA Certified Organic Matcha Tea.
Of course, I had to tried immediately but I must confess that is was different from what I expected.
I thought it was simply another brand of green tea, but I was totally wrong as by infusing the powder of one little bag in a big glass of water gave me a rich and green mix.
It is an acquired taste for sure and, try as I may, I couldn't bring my self to drink it pure :(
I still wanted to really try it given that is organic and I'm attracted to anything that are, so I gave it another chance in my daily smoothy, as it suggested in the package and I loved it this way. I thought I'd share my recipe with you in case you would want to try it too.
Mixed Berry smoothie
1/2 cup of mixed berries (like blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries)
2 Tbp of Sugar (I usually omit the sugar tho)
1/2 of milk
1 cup of ice
and 1 ripe banana
plus a single bag of Matcha DNA Certified Organic Matcha Tea
And voila', this is what you end up with!
Granted, it still comes up looking pretty green after being mixed together in the blender, which could be a put off for some people, but I assure you that it tastes as fruit and nothing more!
I'm really happy to have had the chance to try Matcha DNA Certified Organic Matcha Tea and I hope more people would feel like giving it a try!
