Some of you may have noticed some new additions to my bath & body range and organic tea range over the last month. I have gone totally and utterly bonkers over Matcha!!! What's Matcha you ask? It's a wonderful deeply green stone ground powder made from young tea leaves. This Matcha stuff packs a punch and is soooo good for you. Just 1 cup of it is equivalent to 10 cups of regular green tea in terms of antioxidant content! Fabulous, isn't it! I know right!
I tried Matcha a few years back when my brother introduced me to it. I was wondering why this green tea was so green and had so much more flavour than the regular varieties ( I didn't know it was Matcha at the time). My brother told me what it was and then I was hooked. Fast forward a few years later and it's the new best thing in super foods and well there are great reasons for this.
I loved it so much that I decided to create 3 new products - I had to stop myself at 3 hahah. So there is my Matcha Beauty Mask, The tea itself (mind you I didn't create it - I just sourced some really awesome Matcha) and my Matcha Tub Tea. I decided to call them Green with Envy, because well everyone will be green with envy when they see how wonderful your skin looks after using Matcha and drinking Matcha!
So firstly onto the Matcha Mask - I love this as it's so soothing to the skin and is helping to deliver beneficial antioxidants right to the skins surface. Matcha has wonderful detoxifying qualities so it really helps to clear the skin of impurities and at the same time keeping your skin hydrated and baby soft!

Now onto my Green with Envy Tub Tea. We all know I love my Tub Tea! So this one has all the ingredients that I normally have in my Tub Teas just with Matcha as well. In the tea bag component I've also added regular organic green tea so you can still use the bag to exfoliate your body once the tea leaves have softened. Just imagine soaking in a wonderfully green bath with lots of antioxidants and other fabulous detoxifying ingredients, sip on a cup of Matcha too and all your friends will be green with envy!

Last but definitely not least - My Matcha Green Tea - organic of course! I love to drink it in the morning or add it to a green smoothie. I have also been experimenting with making Matcha jelly, it's pretty yummy. Maybe when next time I slip into Matcha madness I'l make a Matcha ice cream!
