Dream Matcha Powder Review

Hello Lovely,

When I was asked to review a new matcha powder, I couldn't resist! I love matcha but it can be so costly, it's almost not worth it. I wasn't always a lover of matcha and it's still a hit and miss for me. I had a matcha green tea frappuccino at Starbucks once which wasn't bad but when I had a matcha iced coffee at a local coffee shop I wasn’t very convinced. It was terrible! But I was determined to find a reason to love matcha so I bought some from Whole Foods during my Christmas trip. I spent about $18 for 2 oz. I didn't realise there would be so little in the canister.  After about 6 servings, it would be all gone. It definitely felt like a rip off.

That's why I love Dream Matcha Powder. At only $16, you definitely get your monies worth! So far I've enjoyed a steaming cup of matcha tea and I already have plans for other recipes to try with it this week. I'll keep you update on how that goes.

What is Dream Matcha Powder?

Dream Matcha tea is a high quality ceremonial grade matcha green tea powder, imported directly from the Uji region of Japan. Renowned  as the matcha capital of the world, the Uji region produces only the finest quality matcha green tea.

Matcha green tea comes as an extremely fine, bright green powder. It is ground through exclusive stone mills and has a lovely smooth, sweet taste unlike any lower grade matcha powders offered elsewhere.

Each pouch contains 50 g, equating to roughly 30 servings. Matcha powder is mainly used as a tea but also has many other uses; it can be used in smoothies, food, shakes and more.

Green Tea Citrus Chiller

Hello Lovely,

What better way to spring into action than to enjoy a refreshing cocktail that's surprisingly good for you? I actually got the idea for this on the back of an Equal Sweetener box. I went to the food store, picked up some random ingredients and got to work. This was so delicious and of course I had to spike it! It’s beautiful, refreshing, and so tasty.  And it doesn’t hurt that I love the colour.  So vibrant you would almost think there’s real fruit in it!

To give the drink an extra pop of flavour, I used Mr. Boston’s Peach Schnapps (this post isn’t sponsored, but it’s my one of my FAVOURITES!).  It has such a bright and fruity flavour. You don’t have to add alcohol to this drink, but let’s be real. You should.

Best of all, the base of this drink is green tea. Antioxidant-rich, green tea offers a number of health benefits, such as reducing the risk of cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and heart disease. So what are you waiting for? Get the recipe after the jump!

Green Tea Citrus Chiller


·         6 cups water, hot

·         1 cup sugar

·         4 Lipton pomegranate cranberry green tea bags

·         1 cups fresh orange juice

·         ¼ cup Mr. Boston’s Peach Schnapps

·         2 drops pink food colouring

·         1 cup white wine (optional)

·         Orange slices (optional)



Bring water and to a boil in a large saucepan. Remove pan from heat; add tea bags, and steep 5 minutes. Remove tea bags with a slotted spoon (do not squeeze).

Cool tea to room temperature; stir in peach schnapps, orange juice, cranberry juice, and sugar. Cover and chill at least 1 hour. Once cold, you can add the white wine if you’d like to make it sparkling and extra boozy. Serve over ice; garnish with orange slices, if desired.
