Day 8 – Matcha Ninja | 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!

Matcha Ninja premium ceremonial grade organic matcha green tea powder Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Matcha Ninja is a premium, ceremonial grade, matcha green tea powder on the market that can be served cold. Their Tencha leaves are de-stemmed and finely ground for a longer period than regular matcha to allow for a super soluble and superior tasting matcha. Ceremonial Matcha is creamy, sweet and delicate mouth feel. I love high quality matcha vs food grade matcha for their antioxidant, anti-aging and energy boosting properties.

Matcha Ninja is 100% organic and is Canadian and USDA certified. It is easy to use because it is super soluble in cold and hot water. Just add some matcha powder to your water bottle, shake it and go! You don’t even need a whisk.

Good earth Coffeehouse Vancouver Alma UBC Point Grey Cafe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Good Earth Coffeehouse is a popular Alberta-based coffee franchisee that recently just entered Vancouver’s coffee scene! The first location is located in the Point Grey neighbourhood at 2505 Alma Street and Broadway. It is around the corner from Nourish. Co-founder Nan Eskenazi plans to open three to five locations in Vancouver. One at Capilano University in North Vancouver and another coming soon to Downtown Vancouver.

The coffee shop is roomy and has lots of natural light, perfect for studying and catching up on work and life! I love that there are bar seats, long communal tables and even some pretty marble tables with firm comfy couches by the windows that makes every photo totally “grammable”!!

In addition to coffee, Good Earth Coffeehouse also has tea lattes like my favourite matcha green tea latte and rooibos tea latte. Their French Press coffee is rich and great to share with friends. All their coffees are Rainforest Alliance Certified – sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Did I mention they also have craft cold brew coffee? And if you’re looking for that Happy Hour relief, they serve beer and wine!
