I have not made anything from the Top 100 Matcha Recipes Ebook. I’ve just been drinking this straight up with water or more recently with beet root powder in my “Blender Bottle”.

The green tea powder will settle on the bottom of your cup/bottle so drink it in one shot if possible or you’ll have to keep re-stirring or re-shaking…

Can’t say that I’ve noticed any increases in energy (to be fair almost nothing works supplement-wise) or mood… or weight loss… which is probably because I’m more on the less-than-active side of the fitness lifestyle spectrum (whatever! LOL). [If you’re going to take supplements and matcha green tea you’ll definitely want to be somewhat active to enjoy the benefits of taking your daily doses of this healthy stuff. notice how even just going out for a brisk walk makes you feel more alive and energetic?]

This match green tea definitely has a strong recognizable green tea taste. I’m not even trying to re-adjust to weaken the overwhelming strength of the powder on my taste buds. Smells like green tea ice cream too when you open up the resealable pouch.

I really like green tea ice cream… (the mango one is great too!) whenever I have room left over from eating sushi and my usual chucken katsu/sometimes chicken teriyaki. I will have to try making some with matcha powder…

I also enjoy green tea. I should totally make some hot green tea…

#food

I still have about half of the bag left to drink/bake/cook with.

Time to finish my daily morning bottle of Matcha Culinary Green Tea Powder from Matcha Organics… blog ya later,

P.S. Earlier this year when at the local playground with my older sister and my niece, one mother was asking another mother whether she had tried something called Matcha Green Tea… (she was prettyt excited about it) now that I’ve been drinking this stuff I have something to talk about with these mums!

P.P.S. I didn’t realize this until after ordering that this green tea is sourced from… yup, you guessed it C-H-I-N-A. ugh. But then again there’s the whole Fukushima thingy which I was looking into earlier this year when doing research on the safety of matcha green tea from Japan and found a forum where they were just blasting away and openly mocking someone questioning if this stuff was safe… craziness.

P.P.P.S. I’ve continued to drink coffee with my Matcha Organics… NO JITTERS!

Honey Land Honeycomb with Gift Box Unboxing & Taste Test Review

Honeycomb from The Land Flowing with Milk & Honey…?!

Yes please!

I’m am quite pleased with my Honey Land 100% RAW Honeycomb/beeswax in a Windowed Wood Gift Box with Latch. Check it out here:

https://www.amazon.com/Unfiltered-Comb-Exclusively-Land-Kosher-360-Pesticides-Herbicides/dp/B01H62EQVI

Here’s my Honey land Honeycomb Unboxing & Taste Test Review Video:

(skip to 4mins mark – once I upload the whole video – where I finally get the lid open… and try some honeycomb LOL)

I really like the presentation! Gift box with a latch and a nice see-thru honeycomb container.

If you’re going to buy this as a gift don’t forget to remove the booklet inside the box (under the honey container). Would be weird to find that booklet about cold pressed oils. (I’m going to have to look into Pure & Natural Oil, looks promising)

Spent ~ 1 1/2 minutes licking the inside of the lid… YUM!

It was a bit annoying having to unravel that tape around the lid… lol I even washed the lid and it’s still sticky BUT not from whatever honey that leaked out before… it’s the stickiness from the tape residue!

So you may want to just transfer your honeycomb into a different container.

This honey is so sweet that it seems to good to be true. It’s almost as sweet, if not sweeter
than the stuff you can buy in the supermarket and those are known to contain little honey and
mostly added sugar…

I had honeycomb/beeswax from a local place once and I don’t recall much flavour or sweetness… I
mainly just recall chewing on the beeswax and wondering if I was supposed to spit it out or swallow it… so I’m wondering why Honey Land can be so naturally sweet.

I’ve been using Honey Land on toast (spooning up the “melted” honey alongside the bottom of the container).

I have yet to take a nice chunk and chew away… have only tried using my fingers and just had a few waxy tiny bits in my mouth.

DISCLAIMER: I did buy my Honey Land Honeycomb with a discount code so I could taste and review my very own supply.

Looks like someone forgot to renew the domain name… so I’m wondering when these Honey Land honeycombs were sent into Amazon.

Based on the taste & sweetness of Honey Land’s Honeycomb plus the nice windowed & latched wooden gift box I would recommend this for all honey/honeycomb lovers and gift givers.

Thanks for watching & reading,
Yoon

GinST15 Fermented Korean Ginseng LiquidCaps Review

Disclaimer: Thanks to Surv’N Thrive I was able to review GinST15 for a discounted price.
I bought my GinST15 Fermented Ginseng LiquidCaps here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RYTDJ7G (they also sell Ginseng Elixir in a dropper bottle. How cool is that?!)

Have you ever experienced the taste or effects of Authentic Korean Ginseng before?

Then you’ll really like the taste of fermented ginseng. It’s NOT awful! LOL

I’ll admit that I was a bit leary of trying FERMENTED!? ginseng What’s that?! It’s probably going to taste horrid right…? It wasn’t actually that bad… I gave my younger sister one (but of course! Who wouldn’t use a sibling as a guinea pig? LOL) – she really dislikes HATES pills but it was okay since this thing dissolved so quickly (I think she partially bit into it) so she didn’t even have to swallow it.

So I asked her about the taste…
Moi: “So what do you think? Is it nasty…?”
Her: “It’s okay”. <== Which means it’s pretty good.

Our family grew up having tasted Ginseng Candy, Tea and real Ginseng growing up with a real Korean Halmoni so we all experienced acupuncture, downing herbal concoctions boiled in a traditional clay pot and drinking the ever nasty doraji mul when sick (it worked though!)…

Never had a Korean Grandma? Never tried Ginseng before? It’s probably going to be one of those acquired tastes… but no worries you can let a bit of the Ginseng out under your tongue and then swallow it with water if it gets too strong for your delicate taste buds (LOL)

Today I walked to the bank and then made a quick pit-stop to order takeout at Taco Del Mar then made it back home in record walking-time… (I took a dose of my GST15-4 before I went out). I was walking abnormally fast for me (I generally walk really, really slow.) and didn’t feel like I was getting tired and I wasn’t feeling all “JACKED UP” either… guess one could call it #SmoothEnergy?

I did experience a “food coma” after eating most of my ginormous burrito along with part of this totally delicious rice/salsa/black beans salad though. LOL And yes, I went to take a nap. FOOD COMA won out versus GINSENG ENERY.

I do suffer from a lack of sleep that goes beyond insomnia… I have the younger sister who can’t walk so she crawls to my door during the night and knocks when she needs to go to the bathroom… how’s that for no energy during the day?!

I haven’t been taking naps everyday like I always feel like doing so these LiquidCaps full of Fermented Korean Ginseng must be doing something right!

I’ve been thinking about taking the Ginseng 3 times per day… at least once in the morning and once at night and maybe even midday and see how that goes. Is my energy level going to increase a lot?

I decided to take another pill earlier & let it just melt in my mouth and almost immediately felt less tired. Quite cool.

You may have to use your finger nail to create an opening in the blister pack so the your Ginseng caps can come out easily. That seal they use is pretty strong. Most of the times my cap is already partially indented from pushing it out of its individual pocket making it easier to have the Ginseng get pushed out by placing it under my tongue.

Hiya!

So I’ve been looking at doing a parasite cleanse for quite a number of years now but just never got around to it… until now!

30 Day Paraway Cleanse [I’ve done a cleanse before using some mlm program but ended up actually gaining weight! I ate their weight loss cookie (them cookies were huge!) with my meals… lol You were supposed to skip meals and eat the cookies along with drinking stuff]

======================= end of notes ==================================================

I do have an unboxing video to share…

bought Paraway Cleanse for $49.99 Canadian, *free shipping in Canada since I bought over $79 worth of stuff
(including ORGANIC MANUKA HONEY TRUFFLE BAR (MILK CHOCOLATE), CARDOMOM & FENNEL TOOTHPASTE, Dr. Tung’s TONGUE CLEANER, & EARTHPASTE NATURAL TOOTHPASTE x2 Cinnamon and Peppermint)

So far I’m really disappointed in not having any parasite pics to share… maybe I should have used a colander to collect my bowel movements and then poked through them…

So either this parasite cleansing using Hulda Clark’s protocol isn’t working or I’m not infected with worms… still have 18 days to go to find out! (^_^)

Thanks for reading,
Yoon
