drank Matcha Miyabi by Den's Tea
4231 tasting notes

I bought a new chawan last week on etsy (purchased from this studio: http://www.etsy.com/shop/KoideStudio) and I just got the PO Box to pick it up today – and so to commemorate its new home I decided to make some Matcha… now that I think about it I probably should have christened it with some DoMatcha, but, that’s ok.

I’m using the last of this – I still have a little of this tea left, but will be sending what I have left to a friend.

Beautiful, lightly frothy (my matcha seems to fall between koicha and usucha), sweet, just barely there bitter, and just YUM!

Now that I have finished off this, I guess I should finish off my DoMatcha… Matcha is not something that should be kept forever, I suppose (which is bad news for hoarders like me).


And it’s gone already… maybe I want a second bowl of Matcha today. It was so yummy……

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

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.
