I am completely loving this almost vanilla type tea. I love it that it both reminds me of winter with warm baked goods as comfort during a chilly winter, and also of summer days fill with treats.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Mint Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

Being new to matcha, this one helps to ease into the taste and texture of it easily.My second matcha and with good flavor. The mint stands out but the matcha overpowers it. I definitely recommend this one as a stepping stone to those getting into the world of matcha. I am glad that David’s Tea has expanded their matcha line and hopefully both honor and educate the world about the Japanese tea, as they have with the rest of the teas.

Books recommend for this tea are: Usurper of the Sun by Housuke Nojiri, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, Who Asked You? by Terry McMillan

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Mocha Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

This is my first matcha and before I discovered tea, you would have never found me even trying this or any type of matcha, even for free. But now with being a tea lover and david’s tea fan, I am willing to try anything once, even if it had been once out of my comfort zone. The Mocha Matcha to me was a positive experience and I recommend to anyone, especially since we are on steepster because we are tea lovers, to try it. Like the tea adventure, the books to go along with this tea are for people to try to read out of their comfort zone.

Books recommended for this tea are: Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami, Say You’re One of Them by Uwem Akpan, Twenty Fragments of a Ravenous Youth by Xiaolu Guo, Across the Nightingale Floor (Tales of the Otori #1) by Lian Hearn

A taste of summer as sold in their carnival collection. What I love most about blueberries is the ability to stain your fingers with their juices. As with blueberries, there are many book about summer, or the heat of a place where it is eternally summer. I have read countless books in which the character would think: That summer changed everything. While this tea might not be life changing for some, it is definitely a reminder of summer.

Books recommended for this tea: The Stand by Stephen King, The Kite Runner by
Khaled Hosseini, The Color Purple by Alice Walker

Flavors: Blueberry

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
