Kiss Me Organics - Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder


Are you addicted to coffee?  I find myself drinking coffee for taste and for that caffeinated kick that we all love.  I don't drink it often, but I have wanted to try options that would give me the energy I am looking for since I'm not a morning person at all.

I had the opportunity to try out Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Matcha.  This is an organic powder that can be blended into drinks and added to other recipes including baked goods and even main dish recipes.  This is my first impression of this product and I am hoping to have it featured in other cooking posts.  

The warning that this matcha was fresh and had a STRONG aroma was right.  I took a big whiff as soon as I opened the bag and was kinda freaked out.  I know some green teas have a strong smell, but I was sort of scared to drink this.  LOL!  With this order, you also get a recipe book, including the recipe for the KissMe Matcha Green Tea Latte.

1 tsp. Matcha powder
¾ cup almond milk (or soy or cow or goat milk)
¼ cup boiling water
1 tsp. agave syrup

1. Place matcha in the bottom of a coffee mug or other heat-proof cup.
2. Bring almond milk to a simmer in a small pot.
3. Whisk boiling water slowly with the matcha powder in the mug, then pour in almond milk.
Tip the cup to up the foam factor.
4. Sweeten with agave syrup if desired.

Makes 1 latte.

I didn't have a small whisk and had to use a large one.  LOL!  I didn't get the nice frothy results that you would if you used the correct type, but it sort of worked.

I did use honey instead of agave syrup, but it was still a bit tart for my tastes, so I added a bit of organic sugar.  Next time, I will probably use sweetened almond milk instead and follow up with a little bit of honey.

-Gives you that boost!
-Rich flavor - for those that like matcha!

-STRONG taste.  If you have not had a matcha before, you may not like it.

Would I recommend this to a friend?  Yes and No.  No because of the price.  $25.00 is a bit much to be spending on 4 oz of matcha powder, but yes because it is an organic grade.  You could potentially find a less expensive brand, but would you be getting the same quality?  Hard to say.  Since you only need a small amount of matcha for the recipes, most requiring only 1-2 teaspoons, this bag should last you awhile.  

I am looking forward to trying out other recipes, including a main dish.  I want to see if the taste of the matcha will overpower or not.  Would also like to test this out baking and maybe whip up a batch of cookies.  I will have other posts on cooking adventures with Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder in the near future!
