I will probably use vanilla matcha instead of strawberry for this one.. but.. you guys: I ordered a Zoku! AH! I’M STOKED!
YAY for visa points to buy things for free when you’re broke!

This is the recipe that inspired me to buy the Strawberry matcha, even if I won’t use it in the recipe:

That thing looks awesome! I want one. :)

Oh man I love the strawberry matcha. Especially in a latte!

I had no clue what a Zoku was, but now I want one!!

DaisyChubb

I know! I have no room for the Zoku, but when I saw we had enough points and they’re usually over 100 bucks – I went for it! Next crazy kitchen gadget I want is a SodaStream :D

Mmmmmmm

My boyfriend drinks a TON of flavored sparkling water so I have emailed SodaStream asking them to make black cherry flavoring so he can switch to one of those…mostly for the sake of recycling purposes but because I also want to use it hahaha. I wonder if I have enough credit card points for a Zoku now!

Rachel Sincere

SodaStream is not a crazy gadget! I’ve had one for 3 years now. It has saved me a ton of money and hassle in my diet Coke and diet Sprite intake.

I am sad to report my rewards program doesn’t have Zokus, though I could get an Amazon gift card to get one. I never have enough freezer room for popsicles, they are the best invention ever.

DaisyChubb

I definitely want to experiment with making my own syrup for the sodastream!
Oh Amanda, nuuu! I’m sorry :(
But hey, Amazon is the next best thing :D

momo

Actually!!! I have a 50% off up to $30 off coupon for a kitchen store and they carry them, so I’m going to use it and keep holding onto the points for now. $25 for it feels far more awesome.

A friend bought me a Zoku some time ago, but I haven’t had a chance to try it out, yet. My mum wants to make the first popsicle (she’s as much of a kid as I am: wants to be there when I open boxes, pops bubble wrap with me, etc. =) ) and she hasn’t had a chance to come over and spend the time, yet.

@Amanda: You don’t need a Sodastream syrup. I have this, and it’s wonderful:

It’s unsweetened, but is naturally very sweet. I haven’t made my black cherry soda in a while, but I think I added only 1-3 tablespoons (I forget how much, but it really wasn’t a lot) to the Sodastream bottle, so the 16oz. bottle lasts quite a long while. Give it a try, I hope he likes it. =)

momo

Oooh! Thanks, Nik! The water doesn’t have sugar either so that might be able to replicate it very well. If he doesn’t want to buy the Sodastream that might be his Christmas present with a bottle of that!

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
