It's no secret I love tea, but one type of tea I have always struggled to get to grips with, is green tea. I've tried dozens of varieties of green tea and I've never found one I like. But, I kept searching because I really do want to incorporate green tea into my diet on a daily basis, as the health benefits are too good to ignore. At a REN event earlier in the year, I was introduced to a kind of green tea I didn't even know existed, and I've finally found a green tea I like; Matcha. Matcha is a super-concentrated green tea powder, which is packed full of good-for-you antioxidants and nutrients. It's almost a cult product, preferred to your standard green tea and definitely one for those who love super-powerful natural goodness.

Matcha contains 70 times the amount of antioxidants than orange juice, and can raise your energy levels for up to 4-6 hours. As Matcha is finely powdered green tea, it gives you more benefits than drinking green tea from a teabag. As Teapigs put it, you wouldn't boil some veg, throw the veg away and just drink the water, so why drink green tea teabags, when you can get the full benefits through Matcha? Teapigs Matcha comes from a renowned region in Japan, Nishio, where tea leaves have been grown under cover to produce as much amino acids and chlorophyll (the stuff which makes green tea, green) as possible. The leaves are dried, slowly ground using granite until they are just a fine powder, before being packed and covered as quickly as possible. I've been trying Matcha powder myself, and have seen some massive benefits in general to my overall energy levels and character, but I have a full review coming on that in another blog post soon. First, I wanted to introduce you to Teapigs Matcha Super Power Green Tea Drinks* (£1.89), which for me have been the easiest way to get Matcha into my diet.

In three delicious flavours, the Teapigs Matcha drinks are a quick and easy way to get the full benefits of Matcha, without the fuss of preparing a drink using the Matcha powder. It's quicker, it's easier, and especially if you're on the go it's a drink you can grab on your way out of the door and not have to worry about missing your usual pot of powdered Matcha. There's three flavours, Elderflower; a light, refreshing and floral blend with one serving of Matcha, Spring Water and Elderflower, Apple; a juicey drink with Apple, Spring Water and one serving of Matcha, and Grapefruit; slightly punchier in taste, a kick of Grapefruit, Spring Water and one serving of Matcha. They are all incredibly low in calories (apple is 23kcal, grapefruit is 21kcal and elderflower is 32kcal), and they're free from added sugar, with all natural ingredients. I loved each of the three flavours - I thought I'd have a disliking for Grapefruit, as it's such a sharp taste, but it was actually so light and subtle that it was perfect. The Apple flavoured one tasted just like apple juice, and the Elderflower flavoured one was my favourite, as I love elderflower! For me, these are a fab way to make sure I get my Matcha fix and they are also fab and refreshing for a hot summers day. I've particularly enjoyed the Elderflower one after a morning workout.

    1. It is a bit pricey, but if you think of how much it costs per use, it works out fab. It's an extremely high-quality product, so the price does reflect that, but think of it long-term and it doesn't seem so bad :) xo
