.Organic Matcha Tea from teapigs | Review.
Last month i shared my new tea secret with you all Ceremonial Matcha Tea* from the Matcha Factory that’s been making my life so much easier on the weight front. My packet from the Matcha Factory finally ran out so i was in need of a re-stock and because i had a 15% off code for teapigs (see below) i thought i would give a tub of their Organic Matcha a shot.
When it turned up i’ll be honest it was a lot smaller than i thought it would be! Unlike my ceremonial matcha it comes in a little metal tub with a screw top lid which is a lot more practical than the pouch but only holds 30grams of the green stuff which averages out at about 83p per cup – a pricey morning pick me up! It does however come with a little measuring spoon which is not only adorable but it’s also great for keeping each cup the same and helping keep track of your matcha intake!
It dissolves a lot quicker than Matcha Factories powder and seems to taste a little less harsh which makes a lovely change. I still don’t think i could stomach a cup on it’s own without a side of earl grey but it’s certainly a lot more pallattable. As for the effects? Well I still haven’t put on any weight depsite tucking into a plethora of office treats (naughty naughty) so it seems to be keeping the belly at bay which is still astounds and excites me a great deal! It’s become a real staple for me every morning and i feel funny if i don’t have a cup, well less funny, more guilty of the cookies i shouvel down my throat sat at my desk without doing anything to combat the calories!
So which is better?
Taste and packaging wise teapigs wins hands down with a smoother and easier to make cup of tea, but the Matcha Factory comes in at best value for money with 50g of their finest grade matcha for £19.75 compared to just 30g of teapigs standard matcha for £25. Although matcha factory claims you need a full teapspoon of their powder per cup i only ever used half and got the same effects, so that’s means it’s even more of a bargain and i would probably buy more of the ceremonial matcha next time i’m in need of a re-stock purely so my purse doesn’t completely hate me.
I’m so in love with the effects of matcha tea i can’t see a day when i won’t be buying it – I mean, who wouldn’t love a tea that enables you to eat naughty goodies and not put on weight?! If only we could combine teapigs and matcha factory to make a super matcha tea with amazing packaging, great taste, fantastic slimming effects and an easier to swallow price tag!
