Win a bag of Matcha tea from Zen Green Tea
I have to say I go through my stages with green tea. There are times when I drink it quite often and then I usually go off it again. One of the things that puts me off is that if you don’t brew it for the exact right amount of time it can taste really bitter and just gross.
So I was rather intrigued when Erin from Zen Green Tea contacted me about their Matcha tea. Match tea is a rare green tea powder which apparently dissolves to form the smoothest green tea. Erin and co from Zen Green Tea, like me, were tired of the bitterness of the standard green tea bag and therefore began their search for a better option. This is when they came across Matcha tea. They found that Matcha was used by the Zen monks during their long meditative stints as the tea allowed them to access profound levels of calmness and meditation. They also found that the Chinese and Japanese royalty utilized Matcha to achieve optimal health and prevent aging and disease.
Desperate to try this product and not being able to find it in Australia they sourced Matcha from a number of different overseas sources and what they found was a tea that was strong but not bitter. After drinking the tea they felt gradually energized and awake but unlike coffee we were not “jittery” but calm and concentrated.
They therefore started importing and selling Matcha tea wanting to share it with the rest of Australia.
Unfortunately as you know I am not in Australia at the moment so I cannot test this green tea and that is why I want you to try it for me! One lucky ready will win a 60g bag of Matcha tea worth $24.95. All you have to do is tell me in 25 words or less why standard green tea just doesn’t make the cut. The winner will also be required to let me know what they think about the green tea so that I can blog about it (even better you can write a blog post for me!). The competition ends at midnight AEST on on the 12th June, 2012 and is open to Australian residents only. Make sure you leave your email address (where not visible to other commenters) so I can contact you if you win!

I’m back… and I am going to start making up for my absense with this amazing recipe for gluten free banoffee pie. Since moving to London I haven’t done much baking except when I went through a phase of making gluten free banana bread (recipe to come). However more recently I moved house and my

I used to eat at Wagamama all the time and loved it. But after being diagnosed with coeliac disease I visited Wagamama in Sydney and found out that I could only eat one item on the menu and it was far from the best dish I had had there. So I didn’t go back for

Just when you thought there could not be anymore restaurants in Banff with gluten free options. I have one more for now… and it’s a good one. It took me 10 months of living in Banff and finally in my last month of living there I got around to visiting Nourish. I had been told

I absolutely love Mexican food. The great thing about Mexican is that they often use corn tortilla’s and if not they usually at least have them as an option. So it is not surprising that after the first visit to Baja Cantina in Glebe, where they give you the option of corn or flour tortilla’s,

As I have mentioned before there are a number of places with gluten free options in Banff, and The Elk and Oarsman Pub & Grill is no exception to this. I was very excited to find that The Elk & Oarsman actually have a separate two page (!!) gluten free menu. I usually go to the

There is a really awesome website in Canada, Well.ca, which has a great selection of gluten free foods and delivery is free! Whilst there is a pretty good selection of gluten free foods available at the two supermarkets in Banff there are some things I just cannot get my hands on. For these products I

I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it. The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time

One night I had planned to make the chickpea curry I saw on Scandi Foodie’s blog however I left the recipe at work (and I didn’t have internet at home at the time) so I had to put my thinking cap on to try and remember the ingredients for this recipe. Then I realised that

This was another daily deal site purchase – a voucher for a meal at Sugar Lounge at Manly Beach. A couple of friends and I headed down one sunny Sydney day to indulge in some fancy food and drink (well fancier than most of my dining out choices). First things first – cocktails! I went for

I love rice paper rolls and it’s disappointing how many thai places don’t have them on the menu opting for gluteneous deep fried spring rolls instead. However they are very simple and cheap to make so I often make them at home as a dinner entree or snack. You can buy the rice paper sheets from
