VitaLife: Matcha Review

I was particularly excited when VitaLife contacted me, asking whether I had tried out matcha green tea before. Of course I’ve seen matcha take over the health world and take over the fitness foodies’ newsfeed on Instagram, but I had never before ventured out to jump on the matcha bandwagon. That was, until I sampled VitaLife’s matcha tea.    I was even more thrilled at the invite to be part of the VitaLife affiliate programme, enabling me to offer my readers, followers and fellow healthnuts an exclusive discount off all online purchases from VitaLife. As featured on my discount codes page, you can use the code MINDFUL16 at the VitaLife checkout for 5% off all orders – the best news is that it’s unlimited use and has no expiry date so you can go absolutely wild with it 🙂 Maybe after reading my review, you’ll be inspired to try out their matcha green tea!?

For those of you who have never heard of matcha green tea and are wondering what on earth I am talking about, matcha is a powdered green tea grown in exclusive regions of Japan. Matcha green tea is absolutely amazing in terms of nutrient content as it has been found to contain over 137x antioxidants of standard green tea, as well as a ‘feel good’ amino acid derivative called L-Theanine. It is also known to improve mental focus and awareness; boost your metabolism (i.e. you can burn fat faster and easier); detoxify the body; and have anti-aging properties. With a plethora of health benefits, Vitalife offer the most extensive range of matcha green tea in the UK.


In terms of the taste, it is definitely for an acquired palette as the taste of matcha is quite strong – it is the chlorophyll and amino acids that give matcha its unique rich taste. Although matcha has an initial vegetal, astringent taste, it is then followed by a lasting sweetness which makes the overall drinking experience pleasurable and relaxing. I liked drinking my matcha in the traditional Japanese style: sifted (to remove the lumps) and then whisked with hot water to produce a full-bodied green tea as I enjoyed the intensity of the taste (I do love strong flavours such as dark chocolate). However, matcha is very versatile and can be added as an ingredient (to oatmeal, for example, smoothies or banana ice cream) since the taste of becomes much subtler – and turns the food a lovely shade of green.
