Organic Black Matcha Tea Review and Giveaway

I have been a huge fan of matcha tea for years. I have reviewed quite a few varieties over the past year on my blog, so I was pretty excited to try a new type from Matcha DNA.

First off, the color of this is of course different than the regular green teas that I have tried.. certainly because it is Black Matcha! I also noticed that the scent was a bit different, but pleasing. 

I love that it is organic. SO many teas are treated with chemicals, irradiated and grown with chemicals.. it ruins the taste, and it undoes all the health benefits of matcha. 

Dr. Oz has been talking matcha tea up like mad, and this is a brand that can satisfy your craving!

I brewed up a cup as I usually do, with the green tea setting on my electric kettle, and using a measuring spoon to try the first taste. (after that I can wing it!)

I have to say, it was a flavor I did not expect. I want to say it was a little bit floral- almost like a lavender scent. Not unpleasant, but surprising. It was very smooth and it was not bitter at all. 
(cheap teas have this issue, and this is not a cheap tea) 

If you are looking for a new matcha to add to your cupboard, I think this is one to try. 

Want to try a bag for yourself? You can purchase it at Amazon. How about entering the giveaway below:)

Thanks so much to Matcha DNA for letting me sample this. I will be enjoying this bag for a long time to come!
