Teapigs matcha challenge week 2

So, now I have been having some teapigs matcha every day for the past 2 weeks.

I loved the little card that came with it, with suggestions as to how to drink it.2015-01-12 07.02.45

I don’t mind the flavour in water, but I prefer it in milk (usually almond milk). I had some chocolate almond milk and I enjoyed it in that for several mornings, but my favourite milk was the Rebel Kitchen chocolate mylk- it is so thick and creamy and frothed so well too.

I also tried it stirred into porridge. No, it did not look pretty, but I had it with some mince pie filling and it was lovely.

Now, I have no idea whether the matcha has given me extra energy- of course I am not a scientific test, but I have been feeling good these past few weeks. Partly this is due to finally getting rid of that cough (I do keep on about it, but seriously I felt so awful when I had it that I just feel miles better), but my running has been going well, even with the increased distance, and going back to work after the Christmas holidays.

So, I suppose the question is, would I keep having it? The short answer is yes, especially at the moment as I have some left in the tin. I am still pondering how to use some in baking, so if you have any recommendations let me know please.

The powder is quite expensive, but then the tin will last a while. I think it would be something that I would not have all the time, but might treat myself to every now and then.

Would you be tempted to try it?

I was given a teapigs discount code to share with everyone- the code isΒ RUNNING and is valid until the end of Feb 2015 for 10% off (excludes matcha kits, pick & mix, cheeky deals and subscribe and save).

*I was sent the matcha kit in exchange for reviewing it on my blog. All opinions are my own. The discount code is just that- I do not receive any benefits from the link.Β

  1. I’m still not convinced with their matcha, I adore their tea but that green stuff …. I just can’t adjust to the taste. I have an open tin in the fridge as I type and I’m STILL not sure πŸ™

  2. Glad you’re feeling miles better- and your miles are feeling better… see what I did there!! Haha πŸ˜‰ (sorry lame, lame joke)
    I’m just not sure about it. It’s quite expensive, like you said, and I don’t feel the need for it in my life. I’d try it though if the chance came along but otherwise I probably wouldn’t buy it.

    • Thanks- I do like a good pun or joke like that πŸ™‚
      I think I had a sample once before and quite liked it- I am not really into powders and things but it tastes way better than spiruluna πŸ™‚

  3. I can see exactly where you’re coming from with the cough Maria, I think I had mine for two weeks and it was awful, any longer and I’d have been tearing my hair out!
    I’m glad the matcha is going well for you, I haven’t bought it as it’s so expensive – though I did try the pukka green tea with matcha and liked it.

  4. I tried Matcha from Teapigs a few years ago when it first came out and wasn’t a fan, mostly because I didnt have a clue what to do with it. Ive recently started experimenting with it again because of the health benefits and Ive fallen in love!
