EatCleanTea – Matcha Green Tea Review. 

I’ve been a huge fan of Matcha since my favourite local cafe began serving Matcha Latte’s. I hadn’t initially realised just quite how versatile Matcha was until I began seeing it EVERYWHERE. Fruity iced matcha, matcha icecream, matcha energy balls…. Anything you can think of, within reason. 

I’m very much into looking after my body and remaining as natural as possible. I personally believe that keeping natural in food, drinks, skincare etc is the best possible thing you can do for your body – keep it as nature intended. The world today is full of nasty toxins and everything is becoming processed, which goes a long way in explaining the poor health many face. 

Anyway, I was so excited about this package as I’ve been reading up all about the benefits of matcha. I’m obsessed with green tea as it is, and matcha amplifies all of the health benefits of ordinary green tea, as it is made from the ground leaves. Here’s a few of the many health benefits: 

  • It is packed with antioxidants
  • It boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • It calms the mind and relaxes the body, whilst boosting memory and concentration 
  • It’s rich in fibre and many vitamins such as Vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium 
  • It prevents disease
  • It lowers cholesterol and blood sugar 
  • It increases energy levels and endurance 
  • It’s all natural (when bought from a reliable source such as EatCleanTea) 
  • It tastes amazing! 

So EatCleanTea have three flavours: Original, Matcha and Mint, Matcha and Ginger. All three are totally natural and of the highest quality but I opted for Original this time as I know I love the taste. I can’t wait to try the other flavours though! Since receiving the package, I have religiously drank Matcha Latte’s with either soya milk or almond milk. I prefer the sweeter milks than the original, but I’ve also tried adding a little agave nectar which added a really nice natural sweetness. 

I’m yet to try my matcha cold, but tomorrow at some point, I’ll be throwing some ice and water into my nutribullet to give it a go! I think it’ll be amazing with a little apple juice and maybe some fruits soaked in. There’s so many recipes online and on the EatCleanTea website and Instagram (@eatcleantea) so even if you’re not a fan of hot drinks, it’s still a must-have purchase! 

Below, I’ll tell you how I make the perfect Matcha Latte using soya milk and the EatCleanTea whisker (which makes it so much easier not to get pesky lumps!) 

  1. Add two scoops of matcha to your favourite mug 
  2. Add a small amount of hot water and use the whisker to blend away any lumps
  3. Full the mug with your milk of choice
  4. Pop in the microwave for 1 minute (you don’t want it piping hot as it will ruin the tea) 
  5. Whisk once more to create a froth
  6. Enjoy 


You can purchase yours at EatCleanTea and do let me know if you think of any interesting recipes for your Matcha! #TeamMatcha

New health craze: TreeVitalise

There’s always a new health craze on the go, most of them… Questionable. So it’s always great when you find a product that not only tastes AMAZING but is also really good for you. 

The post man bought me this beautiful little package this morning with 3 bottles of TreeVitalise Organic Birch Water – lemon, mint and original. 

  
Birch Water has been hailed as the new health and beauty saviour, topping the coconut, aloe, cactus ‘super waters’ that we all rushed out to snap up. 

It comes from a tree commonly found in British gardens – the birch tree and the naturally sweet water is tapped from the trees without damaging them. 

There’s claims that birch water can treat all sorts of ailments from flu, headaches and dandruff, to eczema, cellulite and liver disease. However, the most common benefits are hydration, improved immune system, and it’s antioxidants and diuretic properties allow it to flush out toxins, uric acid and excess water. 

The drink is widely used across the world, particularly in America, Eastern Europe and China but it’s now becoming available here in the UK thanks to TreeVitalise

As my readers know, I’m a big health lover and like to try anything that can contribute to my health and well-being. So I was DELIGHTED to receive this package today and it’s SO prettily packaged with sky blue tissue paper on a bed of matching shredded paper. Each bottle tied with string and a little heart for good measure. 

  
They’re so nice to grab from the fridge after a workout and my favourite flavour (lemon) will be accompanying me to Yoga tomorrow! All three are delicious and refreshing and of course guilt free at just 4 calories per 100ml.
