Midori Spring Ceremonial Green Tea.

I'm a tea drinker and do drink green tea however, I wasn’t sure exactly what Matcha Tea was so I researched it. When you drink matcha you ingest the entire leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf. Matcha powdered green tea has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea. One cup of matcha = 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea in terms of nutritional content.
After reading this it got me more curious about the tea.
Amongst its many health benefits, matchaIs packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg, boosts metabolism and burns calories, detoxifies effectively and naturally calms the mind and relaxes the body  also is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins.  Enhances mood and aids in concentration provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium. Helps to prevents disease lowers cholesterol and blood sugar.
It is also known with matcha tea that the best teas come from Japan.  Midori Spring Matcha Gold Class Ceremonial Tea originates from Japan, mostly Aichi, Kagoshima region.  Another important quality in matcha tea is ensuring that it is ceremonial grade. Ceremonial tea is primarily used for ceremonial tea drinking, not your usual grab and go style. When you take time to enjoy your tea as a ritual, as a time of the day you put all other issues aside and proceed with your ceremony of tea drinking, you know you will want to get the absolutely best tea you can truly enjoy. Midori Spring Matcha Gold Class Ceremonial Tea will suit this purpose perfectly - it is a more expensive ceremonial tea variety. This tea retails for $24.97 for 30 g or 1.06 ounces of tea on Amazon. This is definitely the type of tea that you want to savor, and enjoy. Only the best tea in Japan gets to receive this ceremonial grade.
I made it as directed only I wasn’t able to froth the cup not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if not mixing strong enough.  I added a bit of honey just before drinking and not bad.  I expected it to taste bitter but it wasn’t and it’s wasn’t bad tasting. 
I received this product for free for my honest review and I do not promise a good rating in return, nor am I affiliated with this company or compensated in any way.  #midorispring

Darn I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the tea made in the cup... I was in such a hurry to try it I forgot.  It was a bit odd drinking GREEN tea, reminded me of the childhood story green eggs and ham...
