A revisit

When I smell the baged leaves dry, they smell like those candies with red and white.

When I smell the bagged leaves wet, the smell is intensified.

When I smell the brewed tea, I smell strong peppermint.

When I taste the brewed tea, I taste strong peppermint

I’m keeping the score the same.

so i tried something new.

putting a teaspoon of this matcha in hot water, stir and drinking it. then using the stuff left on the bottom, i would add more water and stir and repeat.

the experience is: somewhat bitter then gets sweeter over 3 to 4 refills :D

i suggest trying this

tried a different smoothie:

starter matcha + 2 strawberries + milk = a smoothie that’s good but not as good as banana version

starter matcha info can be found here --> http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/starter-matcha-en.html#.VbuNgvlViko

What ingredients do you put in your smoothie?

Kirkoneill1988

Alas, I did not get to make an almond matcha smoothie. Usually I use milk, banana and starter matcha. http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/starter-matcha-en.html
