I wrote a few weeks ago about the Buddha Tea CBD Turmeric & Ginger Infusion, while now I’m carrying on with the range, taking a look at the CBD Matcha Green Tea Blend, before I move on to the peppermint infusion and the chamomile blend. I have made sure to keep drinking this on a regular basis to be able to offer a proper review.
How Much CBD Do You Get In Each Tea?
A single tea bag contains 5mg of full spectrum water soluble CBD.
How Long Should I Leave It To Brew?
As with any form of tea, longer you leave it to brew, greater the chance you get the full amount of active ingredients you are after. When you brew green tea, they often state that longer you brew, more antioxidants will be present, so I can presume the same should be the case for CBD, therefore while the general recommendation is to wait 3 minutes, I actually prefer to keep the bag in for 10-15 minutes.
How Does It Taste?
There really isn’t much difference in taste to this product and most other green tea you will drink, while there is no real noticeable taste from the CBD which you might expect. This is probably my favourite from the range, as I do regularly drink green tea and this allows me to tick off green tea and CBD all in one hit.
When Should I Drink It?
Most of the other Buddha tea’s are perfect to drink in the evening, containing relaxing ingredients such as chamomile (plus obviously CBD) and helping to alleviate stress, however the green tea inevitably contains caffeine, therefore this is one you should try to have at latest 2pm. I’ve been trying to drink it through the day instead of my usual coffee.
Of course, an added benefit to taking green tea, beyond all the antioxidants helping to fight off free radicals, is that it can help you to lose weight.
What Is The Difference Between Matcha Tea & Green Tea?
Both green tea and matcha are actually from the camellia sinensis plant, however matcha is the flower powdered down whereas green tea is often in the leaf form served in a tea bag. An added good point about matcha is that, by being powdered down, it is much higher concentrated and therefore packs a greater nutritional punch. In fact, matcha is believed to contain 137 times more antioxidants than your average green tea bag! If that isn’t a reason to give it a go, I don’t know what is.
Where Can I Buy CBD Matcha Green Tea Blend From?
All of the Buddha Tea products can be purchased from their website, currently priced at £16.99. Of course, that’s if you only purchase one box, with a better deal offered if you’re to purchase 3 or 6 boxes. You can also enjoy free shipping on orders over £20.
Tea For Tree
Everyone is keen to reduce their plastic, however this is also leading to over production of packaging with paper, so we haven’t quite solved the issue. This is why I was very happy to see Buddha Teas have signed up to a program in connection with the National Forest Foundation, they have set out to plant 5,000 trees each year across the USA.
