We love our matcha – so much so that we want to shout it from the roof tops! But, we understand that if you’ve never tried matcha before you may be wondering what all the fuss is about. Well, the other day we received a lovely email from Ann which pretty much sums up why we think matcha is so super fantastic brilliant. Take it away, Ann!
I bought my first tin of Matcha tea at the beginning of January, and about a week later filled in an online questionnaire from you about my experience of using it. I was pleased, but I realise now that I hadn’t been taking it long enough for the real benefits to have kicked in. Nearly two months later I have become an all-singing, all-dancing, shout-it-from-the-rooftops evangelist!! I’d heard about the wonderful benefits of Matcha tea, which is what made me try it in the first place, but couldn’t honestly imagine how one tiny teaspoonful could make quite the difference that was being suggested. How wrong I was! I am a single mother of a nearly-eighteen-year-old boy about to take his A-levels, have a full-time job, and ailing parents who live three hours’ drive away. The combination is slightly stressful…! I’m 46 but also have spots with my wrinkles – nice! I also had proper ‘flu at the beginning of January for the first time since I was 9. And yet, in spite of all this, I have more energy than I’ve had in ages, feel mentally much sharper (so much so that I’m doing two crosswords a day!), and (drumroll…) my skin is as good as it’s been in living memory. I feel young, spritely and capable, which sometimes makes me feel almost tearfully happy at a time when frankly I could be descending into a dribbling heap!
So thank you Teapigs for your little pot of magic – I really don’t know what I would do without it. It’s no exaggeration to say it’s transformed my life”
