Louise the tea taster says

We like to think of it as a sort of superhero amongst teas, as it’s a super-concentrated green tea powder that’s packed with antioxidants and nutrients. teapigs matcha comes from the renowned Nishio region in Japan, where the tea leaves are grown under cover to produce lots of amino acids and chlorophyll (the bright green good stuff). The leaves are then dried and very slowly ground by granite to a very fine powder, which is then packed and sealed immediately, so as to lock in all the nutrients in. It’s been a ceremonial beverage drunk by Buddhist monks and royalty for over 900 years. But you needn’t feel foolish about the fact you’ve never heard of it before as, until now, virtually all matcha has been consumed within Japan.

How does it taste?

with water - like a super-power green tea brew. With juice/milk - a hint of delicate green tea flavour.

Good if you're feeling

blobby and slobby - this super-power brew is the answer to all muffin-top, couch potato-related concerns.

How we like it

Brew Time

our way - the teapigs shot.  All you need is 1g (approx. 1/2 teaspoon) of matcha and approx. 30ml water/juice/milk. Put the matcha in a glass, cover with the liquid, whisk or stir rapidly. Knock it back - we use a hand-held electric whisk which comes as part of our matcha kit.

How we like it

every day - a shot a day is better than an apple at keeping the doc at bay.

Ripped off

This is a rip off. All matcha is expensive, but there are products available elsewhere that are far, far better value. This one is bitter which shows a lower quality than others online/ in health food shops that are half the price!

Vitality in a can

Wouldn't have believed it but it works. I feel happier and have more energy. I too sometimes have an extra shot late afternoon if I need energy into the evening. I mix mine with a little cranberry juice and just knock it back.

Apprehensive - then pleasant surprise!

Well, I can't say anything yet as to the effects of it, but I've received my first tin this morning and have just had my first cup.
I was apprehensive at first, based on other reviews the taste wasn't supposed to be very good and it did smell quite strong when I opened the tin, but I was very pleasantly surprised! I do like green tea, and I found this one to taste very smooth, not bitter as I anticipated.
I will certainly enjoy drinking it every day and will report back in a month's time. :-)

love this stuff

I am a US customer so I pay a premium for this tea but I cannot find a better brand in the US. It is great for energy level and tons of antioxidants. I enjoy drinking in the I was excited to see tea pigs will becoming US soon!

Love it!

Bought another tin recently and after taking it for 3 days I can already feel the effects. I start work at half 5 every morning and always add it to my smoothies I make around 6am and feel full of energy for the rest of the day! Sleep like a baby and skin has got so much clearer. Would 100% recommend. Just waiting for the slimming benefits to kick in.
