I’m an American in the UK and I’ve been having Huel with Matcha flavor boost. It’s not available in the US shop, so I’ll have to find an alternative when I return to America. Are there plans to add Matcha to the US shop?
We’re working on boosting our Flavor Boost US range - we’ll update on which flavors.
Thanks James, that’s good to know. I hope the US gets matcha soon. I’ve tried all the UK flavors and matcha seems to work best. Huel has a pretty thick consistency, but adding matcha balances it out and makes it easy to drink.
FYI, and disclamer: for those sensitive to caffeine:
Although brewed green tea has l about a 60% less caffeine than its brewed black tea counterparts, the ground up macha green tea powders contain significant levels of caffeine. It’s quite potent.
I added a macha powder to one of my Huel drinks one afternoon. The recommendation was one teaspoon. I did about a third of a teaspoon. I was wired, buzzed, and paranoid all day.
Take away message is that Macha powder should be viewed differently than brewed green tea.
