Ceremonial Emerald Matcha Green Tea #midorispring

July 17, 2015

Midori Spring Ceremonial (Emerald) MatchaMatcha is a fine green tea powder used for drinking or cooking. It is different from loose leaf teas because the whole tea leaf is consumed instead of just the infusion. Midori Spring's Emerald Class is the mid-quality ceremonial Matcha Green Tea and it is the one I prefer. They also offer a Premium Gold Class Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea as well. The Emerald Class is ideal for beginner green tea drinkers and for Matcha Green Tea inspired recipes.

I received my Midori Spring's Ceremonial Emerald Matcha Green Tea in exchange for an honest review and so I wanted to try it a variety of different ways. Below is my favorite recipe that I discovered using the tea.

Matcha Green Tea Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3-1/2 teaspoons Matcha Green Tea powder, divided
  • 1 cup boiling water, purified is preferred
  • 4 green onions, chopped, divided
  • 3 tablespoons honey, raw is preferred
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)

Directions:

  1. Place 2-1/2 teaspoons of Matcha Green Tea powder in a small bowl; add boiling water. Cover and steep for 5-6 minutes.
  2. Pour Matcha Green Tea into a large skillet. Add half of the onions. Stir in the honey, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame oil. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until sauce is reduced to about 3/4 cup.
  3. Add chicken and remaining Matcha Green Tea powder; cover and cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°. Cut chicken into thin slices; serve with sauce. Garnish with remaining onions. Yield: 4 servings.

Midori Spring Ceremonial (Emerald) MatchaThe first time you drink green tea some people do not like the taste. Matcha Green Tea, as are all green teas, are an aquired taste like coffee or wine. After a few sips you'll come to love it! If you still do not like the taste, but want the benefits, try adding a bit of raw honey, or turn it into a Matcha inspired latte or smoothie! Yum!

It boosts the immune system and reduces inflammation – Matcha has the highest rated ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) compared to many fruits and vegetables. Matcha also contains a specific Catechin called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCg). EGCg is most widely recognized for its cancer fighting properties. Research has found that Matcha contains over 100 times more EGCg than any other tea on the market! Midori Spring's Ceremonial Emerald Matcha Green Tea has an abundance of the unique Amino Acid L-Theanine and may contain up to five times more of L-Theanine than the common green teas. L-Theanine creates alpha waves in the brain to promote relaxation and alertness.
