Okay, so before I go into the product- a few need to know things about Matcha:
- It’s a super concentrated form of green tea
- The tea is grown in the shade so to retain more chlorophyll (the good green stuff- which is packed with antioxidants!)
- It contains an amino acid called L-theanine which has been linked to stress reduction
- Due to its high antioxidant content this tea is fabulous for fighting of nasties and supporting the immune system
Anyway, with the knowledge that I was going to consume something good for me I was intrigued at what the taste would be like. Vivid drinks blends Matcha tea with natural flavours and currently there are 3 varieties…
Pear & Rhubarb
This flavour was my absolute favourite! A beautiful natural taste of Rhubarb- with a delicate hint of Pear (which I don’t usually like) and with the addition of Roobios tea, I was in heaven at the first taste! I was drinking this at work and shared it with a foodie colleague who couldn’t believe how refreshing it tasted… thumbs up!
Grape & Elderflower
I love Elderflower. It is the nicest taste ever! Bravo to Vivid for thinking to make a tea drink of this flavour- totally enjoyable and very easy to drink. The blend also included white tea- really nice and didn’t over power my beloved elderflower taste!
Lime, Honey & Ginger
This flavour was my least favourite, for me I didn’t really expect or like the Lime. But it was still drinkable, and actually palate cleansing – I gave a sample to my dad and he loved it and actually is asking me if I have any more!
Due to being a bit sensitive to caffeine, I found the best way for myself to enjoy Vivid was to drink one bottle over 2 days. I had a small drink about 3pm for that afternoon boost.
I have been pleasantly surprised at these drinks. Soooo refreshing and available in flavours that you wouldn’t expect to see- I highly recommend these drinks!
You can purchase Vivid drinks from Whole Foods, As Nature Intended and Planet Organic… I would also give the team a twitter follow too because who doesn’t love a twitter big up :D
Lots of Love
