Eggnog Matcha Green Tea Powder #Giveaway!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I love traditional eggnog. The problem is that it can be so high in cholesterol. Now I have found a much better alternative. Red Leaf makes a matcha tea that is eggnog flavored. It smells so good, and I love the flavor.

What I like is that it can be drank hot, or cold. I even split one serving of dark hot chocolate 3 ways, and added unsweetened almond milk with a serving of Eggnog Matcha in the boy's and my drinks. I topped theirs with marshmallows. We all loved it!

You can drink it with just milk (any kind), or water. It can be served as a warm drink, or cold in a smoothie.

A little bit goes a long way! You only need 1/2 teaspoon added to whatever you are having it in. They offer special size 10g of naturally flavored green tea powder ($10 value). Enough to make 5 drinks. 4 calories per serving.

What is Matcha?

It’s a green tea powder and the healthiest green tea.

Why Do People Drink it? 

Usually you steep green tea only to drink the water and throw away the leaves that carry the most nutrients. When drinking Matcha powder you drink the water or milk AND the powdered green tea leaves. It's a finely ground powder, so it's ok to drink.

It has a nice after taste. It does not taste like eggs. It has more of a vanilla taste to me.

If you do not like Eggnog, Red Leaf has other flavors. 
  1. Chocolate Matcha
  2. Sugar Buster Matcha
  3. Acai Berry Matcha
  4. Strawberry Matcha
  5. Noni Matcha
  6. Aphrodisiac Matcha
  7. Cherry Matcha
  8. Madagascar Vanilla Matcha
  9. Wheatgrass Matcha
  10. Pomegranate Matcha
  11. Stevia Matcha
  12. Carmel
...and believe it, or not they have more flavors!

I love eggnog... love it. But with sugar in most of it, I don't drink it.

I drink almost any kind of herbal tea

Citrus Chamomile

Egg nog is not my friend. I love every spice in the world but nutmeg and I love nuts, go figure. Great giveaway tho. Right on Alissa!

(as I read Theresa's comment, it reminds me of my Dad absolutely loving eggnog)
