Matcha Challenge

January 5, 2015Sew White

For the first two weeks of January I am taking part in the Matcha Challenge. 1 cup of matcha everyday for 2 weeks.

Sew White Matcha challenge
It is a magical green tea. It’s organic green tea which has been ground into a very fine powder. It has a huge amount of health benefits including a very high amount of antioxidants – 70 times the amount of orange juice!

The two week challenge is meant to help with energy, overall health and an improvement to hair and skin. Five days in and I’ve already noticed I feel more awake and my brain power and concentration seems a bit better too.

You can have the tea in regular tea form but also cold. I find the taste a bit strong but mixing it into smoothies is fabulous. I love a strawberry and banana smoothie with matcha mixed in. I’ve got to try a few of the recipes on the teapigs website the matcha latte looks very good!

Teapigs were kind enough to send me the challenge kit but if you fancy having a go you can get it on their website in their special matcha section

Expect another blog post on the 14th January to see how I got on!

    Ooo, I’ve never tried this before but it sounds really good. Especially as you’re already noticing a difference. Good luck with the rest of the challenge 😀

    I don’t drink any form of tea so this wouldn’t really be to my taste. I did try some fruity tea the other day and I really disliked it!

      It’s weird how many people don’t like tea. I can’t imagine not drinking it. I don’t like coffee though so it’s tea all the way for me 🙂

      I would really recommend Matcha tea. I’m nearly at the end of the 2 weeks and it’s really made a difference. I do feel a lot better which I didn’t think would happen so much. I was a complete skeptic but I am convinced!
