I’m trying out my new matcha chawan that I got in vancouver during Boxing Week. It was on sale for only $10 at a nice Japanese ceramics place in Kitsilano – I was pretty proud of that find. I noticed that it seems to keep the matcha warmer for longer than the old bowl I was using before did – I’m happy I don’t have to chug my tea so quickly any more. ;)

I went with 1 tsp in 3/4 cup (6 oz) of water this time and I noticed that the strawberry flavour was noticably stronger although it’s still sort of a slightly bitter/un-ripe strawberry flavour rather than the sweet, ripe flavour the smell suggests. I’ve also noticed that using this much matcha gives the tea a distinct powdery taste that I don’t particularly care for.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
