4212 tasting notes

This is my first tasting of this Matcha from Den’s although I received the order well over a week ago. So many teas to taste…

The color of the prepared Matcha is a beautiful shade of bright green. Makes me wish I could paint with it!

Ahhh… Matcha! Thick and sweet and absolutely delightful. The flavor is smooth with no astringency, but I do taste a slight bitterness to it… but a good bitterness! It tastes very rich.

As yummy as this Matcha is, I do think I prefer DoMatcha. Perhaps I’m a bit spoiled? But, this is certainly good and worthy of my beautiful chawan. (Wanna see? http://www.flickr.com/photos/eccentricpastiche/4503534853/ )

I could never let a matcha sit for one day after getting it w/o trying much less over a week!

LOL! I also ordered some of the ginger matcha from Art of Tea, and I haven’t opened that package yet. I think I got it two weeks ago? I love Matcha… but, I being one who doesn’t like gismos or gadgets when it comes to tea preparation only make myself Matcha maybe once a week. Sometimes more… sometimes less.

Ginger matcha is next on my flavored list to get after the strawberry is gone… unless that’s pushed back by another WONDERFUL 52teas blend. I love ginger. I have matcha daily- almost always in my chawan but occasionally in a yogurt- sometimes both ways on those days.

I haven’t tried it in yogurt… but something I definitely will have to try… next time I’m at whole foods I’ll make a point to pick up some yogurt. Sounds yummy!!!

Yogurt + Matcha = Yummy Idea. I have some vanilla Cream-Top Brown Cow yogurt in the fridge—I’m going to try it with matcha right now!

Lovely chawan! I just love pottery teaware. Brown Cow yogurt is yum too!

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.
