Midori Spring Matcha Organic Ceremonial (GOLD) Green Tea #ForReview #Free

*Disclosure: I am not affiliated, related or associated with Midori Spring in any way. I have only received a free product sample to give a 100% unbiased opinion. My opinions are my own and are based on my experience with the product alone. This is an honest and fair review of this product*

When I first opened the tightly sealed, pull tab lid of the Matcha Green Tea it burst forth with a very fragrant scent of something quite earthy. When you look inside the powdered tea it is a very bright green, it's really quite a beautiful color. I appreciate that Midori Springs is GMO free, Gluten free and USDA certified Organic. It states on the can that it is a product of Japan. The instructions for use are on the side of the can, but I've gone to their website to give you a better description below. This is the Quick Method.  You really want the froth to get a good rich flavor of the tea. 
Quick Method
What you need: Mug, Small Wire Whisk or Milk Frother, Teaspoon
1. Place 0.75 to 1 teaspoon (3.75g to 5g) of Midori Spring Matcha in mug, avoid clumps.
2. Pour 60mL/2oz of hot water (72-76°c, 162-169°f) into mug and whisk briskly in a “W” motion until fine foam appears. The whisk should not scratch the bottom of the mug. Can use a small wire whisk or milk frother.
3. Sip and Enjoy!

I tried this method and to be honest, it really wasn't for me. It was just a bit too earthy. What I mean by that is, if you have ever tasted straight green tea or Matcha tea for that matter you know what I'm talking about, it's almost a grassy flavor. That's just the best way I know how to describe it. Let me be clear, I want to bring the best products and the best of anything that I can into my body, especially green tea, Matcha to be exact, with it's benefits and properties. I have an auto-immune disorder that causes inflammation in my body, so this is exactly what I want for me personally, I don't like traditional medicine. What I decided to do with this tea was to make smoothies out of it. It really was quite wonderful. If you are a smoothie drinker like I am, you will love the added earth undertone to your smoothie. Bonus, you will know what amazing benefits you are adding to your body! 

Here is a short list:

Knowing I can have just this short list of benefits, why not add it to my smoothies? Besides the fact that I already know it reduces inflammation in the body and for me, this in particular is all the reason that I need to keep drinking Matcha. Honestly, I haven't tried it before this, but I'm happy about the fact the Midori Springs is GMO free and Organic and that's enough for me to keep going back. Now that's just my opinion.

What do you think about Matcha green tea and how do you like it's flavor? I know I'm sold on it's health benefits. Let me know your thoughts.
