I’ve now completed two weeks of the the #matchachallenge! I’m currently skiing so this post is coming from my mobile, so it won’t be pretty. I’m going to carry on using matcha like the challenge for the whole month, but wanted to share the two week challenge update with you first.
I have rally enjoyed that #matchachallenge these last two weeks and have definitely noticed an energy boost in the hours after I have had my shot or drink. I’m still noticing while I’m skiing as suffering with not not sleeping well at the moment. To me it is less of a buzz like you would get with coffee and more of a prolonged boost of concentration and motivation. This is what I needed and wanted so am really pleased. This was what I was aimed my for in the two weeks. I will have a look at the weight loss benefits over a longer period of time too
I tried the matcha in a number of forms. The shot is by far the quickest, but I found it can also be the least appetising. I tried it with milk, water, and apple juice, and the juice was the best. I would like to try with almond milk when I return from holiday, as teapigs recommended that as an option. I also made it up as a long drink in the form of standard tea and a tea latte and enjoyed both a lot and will continue to drink these when I have that little extra time to sit and enjoy over the shot.
I am continuing to use my tin as it lasts the month and will stock up on more while teapigs are offering a discount throughout January! I am then going to make it a regular part of my daily routine.
