Yum! I do love a chawan of Matcha. There really are very few teas that I find more invigorating … it’s a great way to recharge in the afternoon.

And this one is OUTSTANDING! One of the best I’ve tried. Sweet, buttery smooth! Usually with Matcha I notice a bittersweet kind of flavor to it … but this one has NO bitterness at all, just sweetness. Very nice… Smooth, thick and lovely.

I want to buy this so bad. My next tea purchase.

The only thing keeping me from getting into matcha is the purchase of the additional tools you would need.

Really, you don’t need additional tools. They do make it easier to prepare the matcha, but, you can prepare the matcha without them. You can use an ordinary spoon to scoop out the matcha: a Chashaku scoops out an amount of matcha that is about “almond size.” I use a small strainer to sift my matcha (I purchased it at the grocery store in the kitchen utensil section for a dollar or two). I use a chawan (matcha bowl) but you can use a cereal bowl or a wide mouthed cup for that matter. Even a chasen isn’t necessary – you can use small wire whisk to whisk your matcha, or you can even use a spoon to stir it, it might not end up quite as frothy as it would with the bamboo chasen, but it will still taste good.

^ I concur! I use a spoon and a wide mug and I’m good to go!

Thank you for this info! I had my first matcha today although it was a cold milk matcha but LOVED it!! Absolutely want to get some. They had some for sale there but was 30.00 bucks for a small tin. I need to do some price shopping.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
