drank Matcha Sendo by Camellia Sinensis
4401 tasting notes

I made a smoothie, and I just grabbed this Matcha to add to it because it was nearby. Normally, I prefer to drink this matcha straight (no smoothie) because it is SO good on it’s own that it doesn’t need all the fruit flavor … but, I wanted a smoothie, and I like to add Matcha to my smoothies, and this is what I grabbed… fortunately I still have enough of this for at least a couple of bowls of Matcha.

This smoothie is so good and refreshing. I used some greek yogurt, frozen strawberries, bananas, juice from an orange, and a couple of ice cubes along with the Matcha … it is so yummy. I taste the banana first, then the sweetness of the strawberry comes through along with a hint of vegetation from the Matcha. The ice cubes gave it a cool sensation which is absolutely necessary as it is another scorching hot day. I notice that this tastes less creamy than the smoothies I made last week with the vanilla cloud matcha … the vanilla really made a difference. Not saying that I like one better than the other though, because they are both really awesome.

This is perfect.

Hi again,
I visited a Boba Tea shop the other day and I had one of their Boba smoothie and I think it had vanilla ice cream, almond and soy milk since I don’t like dairy. Anyhow it was very good. I sat there and drink the whole thing. Oink, oink.

I have soy milk green tea but no ice cream for a smoothie. I am not sure that I want to play with it. Best to leave it as is. It had an after taste when last I had it, so I must try to view the labeling, but it says nothing artificial in coloring or flavoring etc. I will lay off it, for now once finish. Enjoy smoothie.

Reminding me I need some matcha as well. I have not had any for a year now. That Stash one finished, gone and it was good matcha…I remember whisking it figure eight style until frothie and it taste lovely, not at all vegetal, it was sweetly in fact.

I am kind of confused? When I made my matcha’s I used cold water and never thought to having hot (boiling water) for a hot cup of matcha, can one do that? I think the water temperature must not be boiling.

In viewing my Republic of tea book, who ministers to my craziness says: Matcha is whisked with boiling water in a bowl to create a frothy, bright-green, nourishing beverage and like all Japanese beverage it is high in Vitamin C.

Well, I think for me since it was powdered drink I thought to have it cold. How dumb of me, also I did not have this book last year, either. Take care,

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.
