Eggnog Matcha Review + Giveaway

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




Christmas Day is nearly here and many you are looking forward to drinking eggnog (the alcohol and non-alcohol kind), if you haven't had a few cartons already. Personally, I love Anderson Erickson Classic Egg Nog, but it seems everyone else does, too, so they're hard to find in the grocery stores this time of year.

Eggnog has a little hidden secret - it has calories. Yes, it does taste great, but you'll be regretting drinking those few extra cups of eggnog on New Year's Day.

Friday, I received a sample of Eggnog Matcha from Red Leaf Tea. Matcha is made from a green tea powder. What is the difference between drinking matcha and a regular cup of green tea? When drinking green tea, you are mostly drinking water, as you throw the tea bag containing the green tea leaves into the trash, but with matcha you are actually drinking the green tea leaves.

Eggnog Matcha is 100% natural with 0grams of fat and only 4 total calories. There are no food coloring, MSG, preservatives and artificial sweeteners. It only takes a 1/2 teaspoon for every 6-8oz cup of milk. You can either make a cold latte or a hot latte.

It was nice having a hot eggnog latte without having to worry about the unwanted calories, plus matcha is a natural energy booster. Don't be thrown off by the green color of the matcha, as it doesn't taste a bit like green tea. The Eggnog Matcha has a creamy vanilla with a hint of nutmeg to it. I recommend using a milk frother to mix the matcha with the milk, which I used skim milk with mine. Overall, the Eggnog Matcha has a great taste and look forward to drinking another cup of it.

  3. I never even noticed brands! My local grocery carries one brand, and it's in a little paper carton. They have a soy nog, too, but I have to be honest: Soy nog tickles the gag reflex a little.
