Matcha DNA Green Tea Powder Review

Matcha DNA Green Tea 

I was able to try green tea powder this week which is great because I started trying to eat a little better and flush all the toxins out of my body. Matcha DNA green tea powder may be the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of nutritional value and antioxidant content. That is a ton of green tea. It is certified organic and sustainably grown for maximum potency. I tried it just as a cup of tea and wasn't too blown away, it still tasted just like green tea, it is supposed to be smoother and less bitter but I would say its pretty much the same as regular green tea. But I like regular green tea so that is not a problem but I think I will try it in another recipe. 

These are a few of the recipes that are on their website I would like to try they have a whole bunch of them, and if you would like to order some of this magnificent tea go to www.matchadna.com
