This was my impulsive black Friday purchase. I couldn’t turn it down, it was an incredible deal and it was the perfect opportunity to delve right in.
I went with the royal grade matcha with “There’s matcha in there?” flavour level.
I purchased a matcha kit just for this. I boiled the water and THEN, only then did I bother reading that you shouldn’t use boiling water. . . Then came the task of waiting for the water to cool. Finally we got there. I added 1 tsp of matcha powder to my bowl and 6oz. of water. Then I got to use my super cool bamboo whisk! It frothed up pretty quick and I added some milk I steamed in the microwave.
I had no idea what to expect for flavour, all the reviews are so different, some say it’s bitter, some say smooth. I expected it to be tangy, that normal tang that cheesecake has. It didn’t have it, it was perfectly rich and smooth and tasted real. The matcha buzz lasted me well into the work day, which I was VERY grateful for. I look forward to all my future red leaf purchases and I plan to make this one a staple in my tea collection.
I should add that the shipping was insane! I ordered Friday, they shipped FRIDAY and I received it the following Thursday and I’m in Canada! I think I’ll get the tin next time!

I hope I did this right! lol

Looks good! I posted this earlier, but just so people know…if you order one large robust flavor level matcha it is $30.98. If you write two reviews and get a $30 gift certificate and get the buy three get one free deal, they come to $15.75 each. Maybe a friend would want to order with you and split the cost if you don’t want four at once!

There are few things in life that I enjoy more than a good cup of tea and the company of my dogs.
I’m a down to earth person very true to my Virgo roots. I own two Boxers, Octane (male, 6 years) and Rally Rims (female, 3 years). I do not breed or show, they are an integral part of my family. I also have a loving husband in the Canadian Military and a beautiful daughter who amazes me with her wit and intelligence everyday.
I love Autumn, for it’s colour, smell and general ambiance.
I’m just a girl, looking for a good cup of tea.
