The serving size is 1/2 to 1 tsp. It says it will give you energy for 4-6 hours both as a stimulant and relaxant. I was excited to try this because of that statement in the description at Amazon. I have a hard time with caffeine, as it makes me jittery. I was worried about using such a potent green tea powder, so I started off with 1/2 teaspoon in my smoothies. It did not alter the taste of my 12 ounce fruit smoothie at all. I didn’t notice a huge boost in my energy, but I did notice I didn’t want to take a nap in the middle of the day like I do sometimes with my son. I made it through a long day with just a 1/2 teaspoon. I decided that I would not try 1 teaspoon, as the 1/2 teaspoon serving seemed just right for me. I did not feel jittery at all ever during the day or after I drank my smoothie with the Matcha Green Tea Powder in it. I like the convenient resealable pouch that it comes in. I am happy with this product for what I am using it for. It is too early to tell if it has changed my skin, which it claims it does through improving blood flow and oxygen levels. If Matcha Green Tea Powder can help with oxygen levels, I am interested in seeing if it will help with my asthma or if it’s just for skin. This is a good product. It is made in China. But here’s what the company has to say about that, directly from their Amazon Q & A:
Our Matcha powder is from China. We did a significant amount of digging beforehand and we found a couple things about Matcha and Matcha drinkers. 1) Is that the price of ceremonial grade Matcha makes every day consumption very expensive and thus prohibitive 2) The radiation in Japan is still a real concern, especially for teas that are consumed through ingesting the whole leaf, of which Matcha is made. We visited and received samples from dozens of farms in China, had them tested for purity and chose the one with the best results. Our goal was to offer a culinary grade Matcha that can be used everyday, is high in antioxidants and will not drain your monthly budget. 🙂 We hope you will try us out for yourself. Thanks again for your interest and if you need anything else, please feel free to contact us via Amazon or through our website’s contact form anytime.
I still recommend using Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder because it is Organic and it did give me a steady, gradual feel of not being exhausted. I liked that it just felt natural and that I wasn’t on speed or something. Usually green tea in any form makes me hyper and has a crash at the end. This product did not do that for me. I am happy and relieved! I plan on continuing to use this anytime I have a smoothie, which is a few times a week. Let’s see how it does on my skin and maybe even my asthma?
