Healthy, Organic Matcha (Green Tea Powder) by KissMe Organics Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

We were intrigued when we received our Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder by KissMe Organics and debated over which ways we wanted to try to use it. Our Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder came with a downloadable 70 page  recipe guide. We flipped through it trying to decide what we wanted to do.


The first thing we tried was simply blending a scoop or two into a pitcher or unsweetened tea. We love tea. We prefer to brew our own tea and sweeten it with stevia. The Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder added a nice light flavor to our tea!

 
This is what the powder look like inside the package.

 
With Christmas coming, I knew that we were going to want to bake Christmas cookies and I really wanted to find a way to avoid artificial colors. I decided that the Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder would be a great way to decorate green Christmas cookies!   

 
I put my cream cheese frosting in a bowl and added a small amount of the powder.

 
I blended it well.

 
We decided to do a cookie cake alternating sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies. 

 
Then I frosted the cookies. Don't they look delicious?

The children really enjoyed them. They thought it was really neat that Mama made GREEN cookies for Christmas! Brandon couldn't eat enough of these. He especially liked the gingerbread cookies. Daniella and I preferred the sugar cookies. I think that I added a little too much of the powder. It was very noticeable on the gingerbread cookies. But overall, it was an interesting, new, and fun way to use the Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder.

What are some benefits of using the Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder?
