Matcha NOW Green Tea Review

Matcha NOW Green Tea Review

Hi guys, today I’m back with a review of Matcha NOW green tea and their new flavours! I was fortunate enough that the people at Matcha NOW sent me over some bottles so I could try them out – thank you so much!

The company only started selling in the UK last year, coming over from the US, and started off with their classic matcha green tea flavour. Now they have released two new flavours – Peppermint, and Ginger & Turmeric.

The drink comes in a regular sized bottle, but has a very lovely mechanism to keep the matcha fresh. Instead of pre-mixing the matcha, there is a twist cap where the spout of the bottle would usually be. The matcha is stored in here, and you would twist it to release the powder as and when you decide to drink it! All you have to do is give it a little shake, and your fresh Matcha NOW green tea is ready to go.

First, I tried the Peppermint flavour. Usually I find peppermint flavoured teas are very strong, but this one was more subtle which I like. I think it works really well as a flavour to compliment the green tea. As well as it being a classic hot tea flavour, it is very enjoyable chilled as well, and it is recommended that you drink these chilled.

I also love how cute these bottles are! The design of the packaging is really delicate and sweet, and I especially love the colour of the Ginger & Turmeric flavour. Anything peached coloured and I’m all over it!

Moving onto the Ginger & Turmeric flavour – this one I was intrigued by the most. It’s not a very common flavour combination when it comes to teas, or at least it isn’t in the UK. Although, I do love ginger and turmeric when I am making curries or anything spiced, so I was hoping I’d really enjoy this flavour.

Again, it was a very subtle flavour and really worked alongside the matcha. It’s surprisingly really drinkable, and probably the most drinkable out of the two.

I’ve also heard that turmeric is good for your digestive system. It’s great that these teas have good health benefits, too!

Overall, I’ve had a great time reviewing these two new flavours! I think my favourite flavour out of the two is the Ginger and Turmeric. Not only do these taste great, but they are only £2.99 each! I think that’s a pretty good price for a really fresh tasting Matcha Green Tea. You can take a look at all the flavours and buy them over on the Matcha NOW website, here.

Which one is your favourite flavour?

Until next time,

    What a great idea. I love the packaging! I also love mint teas so I think I’d be a big fan of that.

      Thank you for reading, Ruth ☺️ the packaging is so cute and simple! I’m quite a fan of mint teas, too – I’ve recently picked up a Buttermint tea from Tesco and it’s really nice!

      They’re available in the US as well, as they originated there, but I’m not 100% sure where else in the world that they sell these! Worth looking into if you think they’d be your thing ☺️

    Oh I love green tea and these sound so interesting! I’ve never thought of trying these flavours but it’s great that their quite subtle, would love to try the ginger and turmeric one! I also usually just use these flavours when I’m cooking my dinner haha so it would be interesting to see what it tastes like. Love discovering new products like this! Thanks for sharing! x

      Neither did I until I received them, but they are really nice! I love using ginger and turmeric in food as well, such great flavours and turmeric is so good for digestion, too! Thank you for reading 💖

    It’s so cool that you got to try out a couple of items from Matcha Now! I like how there are different flavors. Peppermint tea is great for any day! I’m noticing a lot of these ginger/turmeric flavors in drinks recently. They’re really good for your body even though the taste is stronger. I’m glad you enjoyed the drinks! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

      Peppermint tea is definitely such a refreshing classic! That’s so cool that places are mixing up their flavours and trying something more exciting, I did find that the turmeric and ginger Matcha Now tea wasn’t strong at all – it was perfect! Thank you for reading, Nancy 💖

    Ooh these are exactly the kinda things I’d drink! I love green tea anyway, so a chilled version would be so refreshing. Ginger and Turmeric sounds super healthy too, both of those ingredients are so good for you. I love your photography Beka, it’s absolutely stunning. The bottles are really simple and stylish too. I’d definitely grab myself one of these if I saw it in the shop. Thank you for sharing! 💖 xx

      I love green tea, too, but I had never tried it cold until these! It is really quite lovely ☺️ The ginger and turmeric was definitely my favourite, flavour-wise but also because I felt so healthy drinking something with those ingredients! Thank you so much, Bexa, you are so sweet 💖

    I love tea. Tea has many hidden benefits as it has been used as herbal medication throughout time. Nice article!
