Vivid Matcha Green Tea Drink Review

A fairly new drink to the UK health food market that i have been wanting to review for a while now and finally got the chance to recently, which is the great range of Matcha tea drinks from Vivid.#

Vivid is a natural fruit drink blended with the antioxidant rich superfood Matcha, which is becoming very popular with health enthusiasts.

But before i get onto the product and review, firstly we will explain just what this powerful ingredient Matcha actually is and its many proven health benefits.

What is Matcha Green Tea ?


Matcha is a finely milled or fine powder green tea, where the whole leaf is consumed.

Matcha green tea is a natural powerhouse used by monks in the hills of Japan to improve concentration and promote wellbeing.

Matcha green tea is an extremely rich source of antioxidants such as polyphenols and EGCG(epigallocatechin gallate), which scientific research suggests may be able to protect against heart disease, cancer, gum disease, alzheimer’s & may mildly boost metabolism aiding weight loss.

Sudies show that Matcha contains 137 times more antioxidants than a regular cup of green tea.

Matcha is extremely rich in the amino acid L-Theanine, which research shows to aid relaxation and help to reduce stress.

The rich L-Theanine content also helps to balance out the natural caffeine found in Matcha green tea.

Vivid Matcha Green Tea Drink


Matcha provides a powerful dose of natural green tea antioxidants, caffeine and amino acid L-theanine.
 
Our organic matcha from Japan is blended with spring water and a dash of not from concentrate juice to provide subtle flavour. 

Each carton contains real green tea leaf, no added sugar, zero fat and 100% of the RDA(Recommended Daily Allowance) for Vitamin C.

Vivid Matcha Drinks come in three great flavors including Grape & Elderflower, Lime, Ginger & Honey and Pear & Rhubarb.

Review


I have been a massive fan of Matcha green tea for years, ever since i was introduced to its many wonderful health benefits and positive effect it has on my mental well-being.

Matcha is an excellent way to significantly boost intake of the proven cardiovascular protective antioxidants found in green tea.

Vivid Matcha Green Tea Drinks makes a perfect natural pre-workout supplements, and provides a great energy boost before the gym.

Unlike energy drinks and coffee, matcha doesn’t cause the crash or comedown that you typically get with caffeine.

The high amounts of calming amino acid L-Theanine helps to balance out the stimulation from the caffeine, making it a smooth energy boost with little to no comedown.

Matcha also has an amazing calming, relaxing and mildly euphoric effect due to its rich L-Theanine content, which helps to reduce stress.

Having tasted all three flavors my favorite is the Lime, Ginger and Honey, although the Grape and Elderflower is also very refreshing.

For those who don’t appreciate the taste of Matcha it is completely disguised by the natural flavors.

Overall i will definitely be purchasing more of the Vivid Matcha drinks to keep on hand for a treat.
They make an excellent drink served chilled in a wine glass.
