A review of Green Magma (Barley Grass) by Green Foods

Company: Green Foods
Tea Name: Green Magma (Barley Grass)
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ powder
Liquor Color: dark green
Leaf Characteristic: powder smell smoothly of freshly cut green grass; it makes you think of fresh green grass or that freshness that conjures green.

  1. Steeping: none

Water Temp: cold water
I have been enjoying all the many aspects that this Green Magma powder juice has to offer since it has become my morning ritual for beginning my day with that much needed cup of strength, energy and vitality.

Two teaspoons of the powder placed in a long glass with about 8oz of water poured into the tall glass and stirring it vigorously, briskly at first so that it froth to molten green dew like; it is a thick foam surrounding the rim of the tall glass. And when I take sip and sip or mouthful of the drink, my lips are green with that paste like foam from the glass.

I sip it slow because it is cold but once I get beyond this coldness and simply take in the pleasure of the frothy taste and the strength that comes when I swallow this drink, than it is one gulp than another and gone is this drink.

I don’t drink it slow to make it last because the immediacy that comes from consuming the drink is that wholesome feeling and being alert to having had something that is good for you.

I am so happy to have found this long forgotten (by me) drink. Yum!

**A review of Green Magma (Barley Grass) by Green Foods

Company: Green Foods
Tea Name: Green Magma (Barley Grass)
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Region: japan/USA
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ powder
Liquor Color: dark green
Leaf Characteristic: powder smell smoothly of freshly cut green grass

  1. Steeping:none

Water Temp: cold water
Time: less than 1 minute

I take one tall glass and adding two tea spoon of the powder to the glass and pouring enough fresh tap water to fill the glass and stirring it gently at first, than vigorously so that it foams just right.

I love the smell that is filling my nostrils as I stir and stir the mixture; it is a crisp aroma of grassiness. Once I finish stirring what I have is a lovely cup of darkly green drink and when I take a mouthful of the drink and swallow, I am met with a sharply, astringent drink; kind of like sharp cheddar cheese.

The drink is met with greatest of need for it. I am happy to be able to have this juice again; it has been a long time. I am drinking it for the nutrients that it offers: increased energy, support of the immune system, and to help digestion while fighting free radicals.
