Pure Chimp Super Tea!

my spanish vida blog matcha tea

~ I was kindly gifted this tea in exchange of an honest review ~

 As you guys know I love, love, love my herbal teas. I mean I do still love a cup of Tetley, who doesn't?! 
And I always have to have a cup in the morning, it used to be three before I could even function lol, but 
I've retrained myself that one is more than sufficient, then it's time to move onto the herbal-licious blends!

So when Pure Chimps were looking for bloggers to review their Matcha Green Tea, 
my hand was straight up to volunteer and they kindly sent me over this sachet to try.

How cute is this packaging?! 
So excited and eager to try this blend out!

Now I'm sure you guys have heard of Matcha Green Teas before, as there are many different brands selling 
this on the market and in tea bag form too - which is handy for on the go - but why the loose powder and 
whats all the fuss about Matcha Green Tea anyway? What is so special about Matcha?

Matcha is soo amazing that just one cup is equivalent to ten cups of regular green tea!

Pure Chimp have some lovely recipes over on their website here of different ways to enjoy their Matcha Green 
Tea. I think some people find it quite bitter and hard to drink, so making it into lattes and cakes is a fab way to 
make sure you're getting your daily Matcha intake!

Me though. I do like to think I'm a hardcore Matcha tea drinker! I have it full on straight in hot water!
Literally, I have a nice heaped teaspoon mixed with boiling water. I was so gutted that my mini electric whisk 
is still in Spain, so I couldn't give it a good whizz up! But, a good stir is good enough for me!

I really found Pure Chimp's Matcha Green Tea nice and smooth and so easy to drink. 
I really am pro Matcha and think Pure Chimp's have an awesome blend! 
Check out their cute mini whisk too here! I want one immediately!

Love to know how you drink your Matcha!

Read more on my  Disclaimer/Contact  page ~ Since writing the post ' Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginners'   I keep thinking about the part about choosing a name for your blog. If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog.

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

My Spanish Vida goes to Riyadh KSA

This isn't just a one off trip either. It is for, well, the foreseeable future, for as long as they'll have us anyway.  If you follow my social media,  Instagram  and  Twitter  you've probably picked up on the fact that we have relocated to Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The gist of the reason is that my husband was offered a fantastic position out there and to be honest after trying out semi-retirement and with the whole pandemic thing where we've (all) been extremely restricted we were itching for another adventure. We also never realised how much we missed the Middle East.  Previously we had five years out in the UAE, living in Abu D
