drank Chai Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
470 tasting notes

NaNoWriMo has made me kind of forget to do things like… eat, or sleep. I get so caught up in writing that I look up and it’s 8:30 and all I’ve had so far is a small bowl of cereal. Considering that I have low blood sugar and not eating in regular intervals makes me very ill, that is not a good combo! So I wander into the kitchen and think man, I want some hot chocolate. Okay it’s not dinner, but I need some sugar!

In college one of the dorm standbys was 1 cup milk + 1 spoonful nutella = the best hot chocolate ever. So I stood there whisking my concoction thinking that it would probably be good with some cinnamon, maybe a little nutmeg. Chai spices, yeah! And then it dawned on me: chai matcha. So yes, I am drinking Chai Matcha Nutella Hot Chocolate right now and it is the greatest thing ever. I think this would probably work with tons of flavors (berry nutella, caramel nutella, cheesecake nutella…) so if you have milk, matcha and nutella you should go do this RIGHT NOW. Well maybe not right now but try it, it’s fantastic.

Um, last week I had cookies and cream frozen yogurt with nutella and now I am really going to need to make this with my cookies and cream matcha!!!

Need. Neeeeeed. I’m pretty creative with my random concoctions but I never would have thought of this. I am a Nutella addict, but I guess it wouldn’t have occurred to me that it would melt properly. So awesome, thank you for sharing!

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
