From Red Leaf Tea

Have you ever heard of Gymnema Sylvestre? Well, not many people have. Gymnema is really quite a neat and interesting herb nicknamed “The Sugar Destroyer” You may wonder why it is called that and you are about to find out. Gymnema is a unique herb that assists in many sugar-related aspects of life. It does not add sugar, replace sugar or any of that. What Gymnema Sylvestre does is this:

Regulates blood sugar levels Curbs your appetite for sweets things and goodies Helps maintain a healthy weight Helps maintain normal cholesterol levels

Ideal for people who have a sweet tooth, this interesting herb makes it easier to resist sugar cravings and ensure healthier life without the needs for something sugary and sweet.

We are pretty excited about this herb, so much so that we have added to our famous and high-quality Matcha Green Tea. Our Sugar Destroy Matcha not only has the many benefits of Gymnema Sylvestre, but also the many health benefits of Matcha Green Tea.

Matcha Green Tea features many healthful qualities such as optimal heart health, cancer-fighting properties and blood detoxification. It also helps burn calories. Combined, Matcha Tea and Gymnema enables sugar to be absorbed in the intestine. This tea blend blocks the sugar taste so you do not crave it as much. Gymnema Sylvestre is very often used in the Ayurvedic (long life) community to help control Types I and II Diabetes. Matcha and Gymnema are also known to help regulate weight loss and cholesterol levels.
The National Institute of Health conducted a study showing that Gymnema can be a safe and effective weight-loss formula that helps reduce excess body weight and BMI (body mass index) while maintaining healthy levels of blood lipids. Source: NIH http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15056124
You can see, then, that our Sugar Destroyer Matcha works wonders for your body to maintain health and promote healthy weight and healthy living naturally. This is a wonderful combination tea you will love and it will help reduce that sweet tooth while offering many other health benefits.

So… this was great! it tasted “fresh” like just picked greens washed in spring water, maybe even made into a broth. Rather smooth, and not fishy at all! The hint of natural sweetness was nice, like you find in some salads. A tiny hint of agave brought out that note a bit more, not that I was craving it lol
As for whether it reduces my sugar cravings… well, we shall see! I didn’t expect it to work the first time. I assume these things have a cumulative effect.

Bonnie

Hi! There you are! This sounds refreshingly good!

Indigobloom

Hi Bonnie!!!! ahhhh this site is SO slow today. I’ve got such a backlog… but no patience to post.

gmathis

Will be interested to hear about the sugar-craving element.

Indigobloom

well I only had ONE chocolate ball instead of… (errr let’s keep that number secret shall we!) :)
But then I didn’t follow up with a second matcha today

chaijeeyah

I have never tried Matcha but I have one in the shipping right now and I am very excited about it.

Indigobloom

oooh! did you get a whisk as well? exciting indeed!

chaijeeyah

No, not the whisk, I opted for spending more on tea than teaware this time :)

Post weight lifting smoothie!

Sugar Destroyer matcha + soymilk + soy protein powder + 2 Kale leaves = BLECK! Creamy chunky leaf bleck!

I should of added some almond butter (thats a delicious kale smoothie right there), but I think I’m punishing myself for being out of exercise the last few days.

EDIT: this is the longest smoothie drinking session ever! I swear I’m chewing more of it. The sugar destroyer matcha I cannot taste, but I can feel it perking me up. Ugggg kale teeth!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this Matcha.

This is very interesting. I had never heard of Gymnema Sylvestre, but if it helps to keep that sweet tooth under control, then I am definitely excited about this herb.

This is a delicious Matcha, but it is a little different. It isn’t as foamy or frothy as some Matcha, it foams up after whisking, but it disappears rather quickly. The flavor is a bit more even than a typical Matcha. That is to say, it isn’t as distinctly grassy or bitter as a typical bowl of Matcha. It is more of an even-tempered flavor with fewer high notes. The sweet, vegetative and even bitter tones are still there, just not quite as distinct as they would normally be with a typical chawan full of Matcha.

As I near the end of my chawan of this Matcha, I notice more of a herbal-y kind of flavor. It isn’t off-putting, just definitely different from the normal Matcha flavors.

A very enjoyable, albeit different, bowl of Matcha!

So I’m starting to come to the end of my matcha reviewing career, I’ve tried just about all the ones I want to try and now I need to decide which ones I want to stock up on. This is one of those I’ve been eyeing, but it kept popping out of my cart in favor of delicious beauties like French Vanilla or Caramel. But I am very excited to be trying it now (found here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/sugar-destroyer-matcha.html).

It’s no secret that I sweeten my teas with sugar, all teas, without fail. I know, I know, I’m a horrible tea drinker. But this one is supposed to help curb sugar cravings and so on and so forth, so I’m going to try it without sugar first. It’s worth mentioning that this tea isn’t meant to replace sugar, it’s meant to do the following:
Regulate blood sugar levels
Curb your appetite for sweets things and goodies
Help maintain a healthy weight
Help maintain normal cholesterol levels
Taking all of that with a grain of salt, if replacing straight matcha with this can help curb my cravings for sugary snacks, then I’m all for it. Now I just need a tea to help me curb my desire for biscuits and gravy! Disclaimer, my cravings aren’t usually for sugary sweet things, I crave chips and bacon and savory goodies, so I’m not entirely sure that this will help me.

It tastes like…matcha! Surprise! I’ve never had a straight matcha from Red Leaf Tea, so I can’t really say how it compares to their matcha, but I have had straight matcha from other sources so I can, for sure, say that this tastes like matcha. Shocking, I know. I don’t magically feel like I don’t want anything sugary, but I’ll keep an eye on my cravings today and report back. Keep in mind, though, I’m only having a very small cup. The good news is that I am taking this matcha without sugar and while yes, I would like some sugar in it, I’m not dying for it. Maybe this old dog can be taught a few new tricks!

So here I am a few hours later, ready to report. Now, keep in mind again that I’m not horribly keen on sugar snacks, but after a long, long day at work I discovered that I hadn’t ready craved sugar at all today. It was interesting but inconclusive. But I’m glad to have tried it and I look forward to trying more and seeing if it really does help when I’m dying for a good sugar buzz.

Hahahaha, I was thoroughly entertained by this review! :)

A nice – strong – rich – HEALTHY – great quality tasting matcha! It leaves a leafy green meets veggie aftertaste but it’s darn good!

Cofftea

Love me some strong and rich matcha. But all matcha is healthy!
