My First Cup of Matcha Tea

My First Cup of Matcha Tea

Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I’m getting back in the grove. That being said, from now on I am going to be posting normal articles on Sparkle Saturdays and Wednesdays and then I am going to be starting a new page on my site sometime this week called ‘thought of the day’. Because of school work, I am not able to write as many full articles, but I will do my best to post a ‘thought of the day’ at least twice a week where I will journal a quick response to one of your questions for me or write a quick reflection on something I thought of on that given day. As always, don’t forget to follow my social medias to get all the news that sparkles and don’t forget to sparkle! Now, onto today’s post!


In late July, I received a package filled with a very generous donation of a full pack of Matcha tea single sips and a sample packet from The Republic of Tea  for a review.

The Republic of Tea Matcha Tea Sparkle News

 

So, I decided to try out one of the sample packets today. The first thing that I noticed was that the tea packets had instructions for a few different ways to prepare the tea: hot, cold, or as a hot matcha latte. Being me, I decided to make the matcha latte. It was very easy to prepare, all I had to do was make a cup of hot water and stir in the tea packet with a fork and then add milk. Also, the tea was a very pretty green color when prepared.


As for the taste, the Matcha tea tasted slightly like green tea only with a slightly more subtle taste. The milk also made it very creamy and nice. I would definitely recommend Matcha tea, especially The Republic of Tea’s Matcha tea, for people who drink green tea regularly or for those who like tea lattes. In addition to its taste, I read up on Matcha tea and found out that it has quite a few benefits as well. Not only is Matcha tea good for detox, but it also burns calories and boosts energy. Overall, I was really pleased with my first cup of Matcha tea. As for you guys, the full pack of Matcha single sips will be included in the much awaited giveaway that I will be doing soon.

Don’t forget to check back on Wednesday for a new fall related article and don’t forget to check my page ‘Thought of the Day’ which will be released soon! Don’t forget to sparkle!

 

Road Trip Blog Day One

Road Trip Blog Day One

Hey guys! As many of you already know, for the past five days I have been on a road trip with my family. What you don’t know is where I have been and what I have been doing. So, here is my recap of day one and day two will be posted tomorrow. Also, as always, don’t forget to follow all my social medias and to stay active. And, most importantly, don’t forget to sparkle!


Day 1: Amarillo, Texas

Our first destination was Amarillo, Texas. We packed the car, dropped my dog off at his doggie daycare, and left my cat with lots of food and water in the morning before hitting the road. I’m not exactly sure when exactly we left, but I think it was around noon. Although the ride was long, about halfway through we came across this really cute small town called Childress. Childress was founded 1902 and had a lot of really cool old buildings, cars, and an old train.

If any of you ever find yourselves a few hours south of Amarillo, I highly recommend that you stop in Childress. After Childress, we kept on driving so that we would make it to Amarillo before it got dark. We got to the hotel pretty late so we didn’t really explore Amarillo much, but we did stop at a Target near the hotel so that I could buy a camera I had been reading about online to use on the trip. I was looking for the Nikon Coolpix L340 but unfortunately they told us that Target was discontinuing selling the item. After we got back to the hotel we settled in for the night. The room was really comfortable because it was split up into two smaller bedrooms and a main living area. So, me and my sister watched Say Yes to the Dress on TLC and Toy Story 3 on Freeform before going to bed sometime just before midnight. Even though we didn’t do a whole lot on the first day, it was still very fun. Also, we did A LOT on day two so make sure to go check that out here.

On the road.
