drank Matcha Miyabi by Den's Tea
4401 tasting notes

Yep… matcha. I thought I had had enough of gadgets for the day as I am using a teapot, mary pop-in and tea cozy as opposed to my standard smart brewing device… but apparently not, since … I found myself walking to my tea cupboard and removing my chasen and chawan. I don’t know why I did it. I didn’t even think about it, it was like… “habit.”

Anyway… here I sit with a bowl of Matcha Miyabi in front of me. Pleasant, sweet, and that ever so slight touch of bitterness that I find so appealing. Lovely. So lovely, in fact, that just for fun, I have decided to give it another point or two…

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C

Me thinks I’ll try this one next when I make my matcha rotation back to Den’s. I’m 2:2 w/ their matchas so far… but then again I’ve never found a less than perfect matcha.

If your budget will allow you to, I highly recommend trying DoMatcha. If you happen to live near a Whole Foods, you may be able to find some of their products in their tea aisle… and save yourself the $10 shipping charge… DoMatcha is a little bit higher in cost, but, it is really worth it if you love Matcha!

Cofftea

It doesn’t and I’m not lol. I haven’t getten to the point yet where I can really tell between brands (definitely not to the point where I prefer one of the other) so I’m good w/ cheap for right now… but believe me- I will eventually try every matcha I can get my hands (and wallet) on :)

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.
