This month isn't just May... It's Matcha May. The lovely people at Teapigs gave me the chance to try out their green tea (or 'matcha') during their monthly campaign, and I jumped at the opportunity because I've heard so many fab things about Teapigs!
It may not be the most good looking drink of the year... Yes, it just looks like green water. YUM. Sarcasm aside, Matcha green tea adds a little spring to your step, is high in antioxidants AND it aids fat burning. For just those reasons alone, it's the ultimate cup of tea!
Saying that, I'm very fussy and I've only ever reached out to a good ol' traditional cup of tea. The thought of green tea never thrilled me, but I gave it a go. Needless to say, I couldn't finish it. It's an interesting taste... Some people may say it tastes like steamed vegetables. I'm not going to slate it too much though, as I just have very strong tastebuds and therefore am very picky with flavours.
I have no doubt that, if you can stand the taste of it, then it is a very healthy drink for you to have. Maybe it'll take a few goes before I start getting used to it and will be more willing to drink it. I'll definitely give it a try again soon!
