Dream Matcha Ceremonial Grade Matcha Green Tea Powder

As the weather gets cooler and the days become shorter, I find nothing better than pouring myself a cup of tea at the end of the day. Lately, I've been trying to be a bit more "adventurous" with my tea choices so I immediately was drawn to trying out Matcha Tea Powder.

Focus Supplements kindly me sent a packet of Dream Matcha Ceremonial Grade Matcha Green Tea Powder* to try out for myself. Matcha tea has been making quite a hit lately. If you have never heard of Matcha powder before, it is made from special green tea leaves that are then steamed, stemmed and de-vined before being turned into powder. Matcha powder has a vibrant green colour that tastes slightly grassy but is sweet yet mild. Matcha tea falls into two categories, ceremonial grade and culinary grade. Ceremonial is much finer and more expensive while culinary is used for most cooking and baking.

The Dream Matcha Ceremonial Grade Matcha Green Tea Powder* (£11.99) is the highest quality tea that is imported from Uji, Japan where it is ground through stone mills. It is infused with an array of vitamins, minerals and organic superfoods and is an extremely powerful antioxidant with nootropic qualities. It comes in packets containing 50 grams of powder that equates to roughly 30 cups of tea. Focus Supplements recommends mixing the powder with boiling water to enjoy its relaxing and tasty benefits. The more tea you drink, the more you will enjoy its benefits although one should not drink more than 3 to 4 cups a day.

My favourite way to drink the Matcha Powder is to mix half a teaspoon of powder with boiling water to dissolve it and a bit of milk for a creamier taste. I love to drink this in the evening as I feel like it helps me to relax and unwind. It also tastes great as a latte mixed with a bit of honey as a sweetener or in a smoothie.

While looking for ways to use this powder, I came across a face mask which asks for a teaspoon of matcha, a few drops of boiling water and honey. I decided to give it a try and although I looked like a green monster, I quite liked it as my skin felt really clean and soft afterwards.

Focus Supplements have a wide range of different supplements that are specifically targeted for health, body, energy, mood, memory and focus among others. I recommend trying out this product if you are a tea lover like me, wanting to try out something new.

sunday catchup, university, moving

Hello! By this point, I'm pretty sure that you have all forgotten about me and my blog! I had even forgotten about my blog for the past month. It's been super hectic recently so let me rewind a bit.

During the past month, I have travelled twice, moved and started university. There have been many happy and stressful times. The last thing that I posted here was the first travel post. I planned to put up the second one a week later but then it got a bit too crazy. A few days after arriving back home, I received my exam results which determined if I would go to uni or not. I had been dreading this day as I was so sure that I had failed. After stressing too much about opening the results, I found out that I had actually passed and got better results than I had ever anticipated. I was so happy and I still can't believe it. 

Now I had to start preparing for the next step, packing. Mind you, university was starting a week later. Since I don't live on mainland Malta, it takes me more than a 2-hour trip to reach my destination which includes riding a ferry and catching a bus (which is basically a nightmare thing to do in Malta!). The only reasonable thing for us living in Gozo, is to move closer. If anybody has moved house you will know that it's a very stressful thing to do. So now I live in a flat with my roommates in a totally different place and life. It was strange at first but now I've settled in quite well. 

As for University in general, I think it's going quite well. I am following a degree in Communications and I'm loving it so far. It is all about studying the way people communicate and interact with each other, be it face to face or online. I still have no idea what I exactly want to do in the future so this course is perfect for me since it can lead to many different career paths. 

Now that everything seems to have calmed down and I'm getting used to the new routine, I felt like it was time to get back into blogging because I do miss just sitting down and writing whatever comes to my mind. So basically that's what has been happening in my life. I'm sure that a lot of you are in the same place as me or have recently been through this change so I hope that you understand the lack of activity on here.
