My normal routine is to have a Sencha Shot from Ito En right before I hit the gym. A little background… I go to the gym a minimum five days a week, Monday through Friday. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I do weights and cardio. Tuesday and Thursday is cardio only. Weekends I stay active by doing outdoor activities with the family especially with summer and warm weather approaching. Yes, shopping counts as cardio too. Haha!
Since I have only done this once I would need more experimentation and consistency to firm up my actual final impressions. The Sencha Shot gives me more of an energy boost up front. I always liked that because it allowed me to start strong and once I start to feel the natural build up energy while working out I would get a solid finish. Love the Sencha Shot and I’ve been drinking it right before my workouts fairly consistently for about a month. I can say with certainty it works for me. Remember I am not a doctor…blah…blah….blah. These are strictly my experiences and they will most certainly vary person to person. I do however encourage experimentation.
The Unsweetened Matcha Love was more subtle but more substantial. By the way, I was introduced to the Matcha Love line at the World Tea Expo 2015. Best part was that it didn’t wear off as my workout went on. I felt it all throughout which actually helped me push myself harder as opposed to wishing I was done as I got closer to the end of my workout. I am very interested in giving this more experimentation. Seeing as I have only tried it once I can’t really say I am onboard yet. However, I can say that results are promising.
