Matcha Green Tea Review
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
What is Matcha Green Tea?
Matcha DNA™ green tea is organically grown and hand picked. It can been made as delicious tea, latte, martini or used in food like green tea ice cream and cooking.
Few people know that the current practice of drinking powdered tea in the Japanese tea ceremony is actually from the song dynasty in China. It dates back to over 1,000 years ago. This practice was carried on in Japan and is now considered a pillar of Japanese culture. Today. once again high quality Matcha is being made in China.
The tea has a slightly different character than its Japanese counterpart. Both teas have a deep green color and thick, savory taste and texture. Both are high in EGCG and antioxidants. However, our Chinese MatchaDNA™ is smoother, without the bitterness, and has rich, smooth and fresh taste unlike any other!
POWDERED GREEN SUPERFOOD TEA
NOT MADE IN JAPAN CHINESE ORIGIN
ULTRA HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANT AND EGCG
One glass of MatchaDNA™ may be the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.
I was supplied with a sample in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review.
The first time I used this I did not stir it very well so my last few sips were too strong and left a bitter taste in my mouth. Please make sure you stir or even shake it enough so you do not have that gritty taste at the end. I have come to the conclusion that this is very potent like it claims. It is like drinking several glasses of green tea (up to 10- in nutritional value). Since I am not a consistent tea drinker it seemed a bit to strong for me. I have only been using a half of packet now and that is much better on my taste buds. :) This is my first experience with a powder tea so it is a new thing to get used to. I still love the health benefits and would recommend it to anyone.

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray. They are a bit similar but yet different. Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1. Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2. Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid. Mix well. 3. Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4. Go have fun!!! This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week. I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general. I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry. I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes. :) Ready, Set, Go! Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
