I have never tried matcha powder before, but as a foodie I am always keen to try new things. I have heard a lot of touting of matcha powder, though. I hear it's heavy in antioxidants. Can't really go wrong there. So, I tried Midori Spring Organic Culinary Matcha.
Upon opening the green package, I noticed a smell akin to grass emitting from it. Not an unpleasant smell and frankly much better than a number of other healthier ingredients.
Reading the back of the package, I saw that you can use this in baked goods, smoothies and meals. My first thought was to include it in a smoothie. So, I whipped up a strawberry, kale, matcha smoothie. The powder was fine enough to not change the texture too much. And it did not give my smoothie a weird taste.
Next, I made some zucchini muffins. Now, this is where I either did something wrong or matcha powder just does not work well with zucchini muffins. But, the taste was significantly different than what was normal in zucchini muffins.
I am not sure if I really feel healthier since I began to use this product, but I know I will continue to use it. After all, it takes time for things to work. Recommended.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
