Matcha: The Secret Ingredient to a Better Life.

Look, I’ve played around with pretending to like matcha as much as the next celery-juicing, biohacking, crystal-infusing health-nut out there. But, let’s face it: matcha can be tricky. It’s generally bitter, takes a bit of effort preparing, and isn’t exactly the most budget-friendly wellness indulgence. Hence, like most people, I sort of pushed matcha to the side and kept it as a one-off “special” occasion type treat (...that I didn’t even really enjoy anyways).
This was up until I found My Matcha Life, which 1) isn’t bitter and 2) makes me feel AMAZING. Rather than drowning my usual matcha lattes in maple syrup or mixing with a dollop (or 7) of raw honey (which is YUM, but sometimes a bit of a sugar-overload…) - this particular product has a specific taste and profile that is light and mild. It has a “matcha” taste - but with none of that weird pungent aftertaste that all other matcha seems to come with. Better still, this is matcha you can FEEL. Honestly, every time I drink this stuff, within MINUTES I feel a rush of calm cool collected SERENITY wash over my entire body, and I am able to relax into a state of focus and alertness unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before. This stuff is like drugs, except its superfood...or superherb...super-whatever, I’m into it.
1) Why the DELICIOUS (& Not Bitter) Taste?
Apparently, the My Matcha Life Co-Founder, Calli O’Brien, actually worked with tea masters in Japan to come up with that specific flavour taste and profile. Furthermore, the tea leaves themselves are hand-picked during first harvest. It’s important to choose a first harvest if you’re looking to enjoy a more mild, pleasant-tasting matcha, because the sun changes the amount of L-theanine (which is naturally occurring in these green tea leaves) into tannins (bitter). Thus, a second-harvest matcha will be undoubtedly less sweet and mild vs a first. The level of L-theanine present in the end product also leads perfectly into the next part…
2) How Come I Feel SO Good From Drinking THIS Matcha?
Well let me tell you, it’s not some crazy placebo effect from snazzy branding or because of convincing myself that I’ve forked out enough change for this drink, I better flipping enjoy it! In fact, it’s because it’s proven as LITERALLY the best-tasting matcha available on the market today, thanks to its incredibly high L-theanine level. This translates into an almost INSTANT boost of sustained energy, mental focus and alertness - all the while lowering stress levels. It’s calm meets awake, and it’s the perfect combination for a pre-workout, pre-meeting, pre-LIFE activity.
Seriously, there’s a reason MY MATCHA LIFE experiences no customer returns - like, ever, ever.
If you’ve questioned matcha in the past, hey - I don’t blame you! Regardless of “how good” it’s supposed to be for you, if it doesn’t taste palatable, you’re probably not going to put in the time to get whisking (or spending!). Furthermore, if you don’t actually notice the benefits in terms of how you really feel DIFFERENT (in a good way) from drinking it - why would you?! Regardless of your matcha experiences in the past or present, I am SERIOUSLY suggesting you give THIS particular product a try, and you can thank me later.
PS I fell SO HARD in love with this product, I reached out to the Founder to see if she would consider providing me with an (actually special) deal for me & my tribe on MEByKiki.com.
