REVIEW: Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea Powder by The Tea Makers London

So firstly, I thought I would start doing some reviews on products that I am trying at the moment. I guess they will be mostly food related, but just incase you're interested in trying something new, why not have a lookie here first!

I know I am one of those people who go through phases. You know, when I get obsessed with something and have it everyday... yeh, I'm in one of those right now. I'm not really a big coffee drinker. To be honest, it sends me bloody loopy and any client/friend that has been out with me whilst 'on' the stuff will completely understand - you know who you are!
The other thing is, I'm not a massive fan of the taste of coffee, I like a bit of a caffeine fix now and again though and I like the idea of a latte, just you know... without the erm... coffee!

So, here is my new thing! I thought I would try a matcha latte. I have been really enjoying them from The Garden Cafe, but I do like to make my own thing as well if I don't get time to nip down the road... so I bought some matcha!


Please be aware this stuff does not come cheap! I would highly recommend going somewhere that sells matcha green tea or matcha lattes first and try one incase you don't like it. I however do! I scanned quite a few different teas online and found this one from The Tea Makers London. The reason I was drawn to it was because it had a 'Great Taste Award' so I thought I would give it a try - plus the packaging is adorable (what can I say, I'm a sucker for that!)

Now, I'm not a green tea connoisseur, but to me, this tea is lovely. It's not too bitter and as you only need a small amount it lasts for ages. I purchased this one online and it cost me around £17 with postage from amazon, but you can also buy it from their website here.


It's also good to know that matcha green tea is almost looked upon as a super food nowadays because of the amount of antioxidants in it. 

To make a matcha latte here is what you do...

  • In a small cup, add half a teaspoon of matcha powder and add a tiny bit of hot water (not just boiled as the tea will burn) and give it a good mix so the powder turns into a runny paste.
  • Then heat up some nut mylk in a pan (or the microwave if you prefer)
  • In your blender (vitamix/nutribullet type blender) add the warm mylk and matcha paste. Then add a squeeze of honey or natural sweetener of your choice
  • Blend it together so it all foams up. Be careful when you take off the lid as sometimes it explodes a bit! I usually put a tea towel over the lid as I open it.
  • Pour into your cup and enjoy!

Why not give it a try, I found that this one seemed to be the best quality without having a staggering price tag as well. Let me know what you think. What's your fav green tea brand?

Thanks so much for reading,

Big love,
