This is one of the newer offerings from Metropolitan Tea – so new, in fact that the description of it is not featured yet in their catalog… so I’m not able to add it here yet.

This one froths up really fast. There is a bit more bitterness to this matcha than I’m used to – but it is accompanied by the vegetative sweetness that I am used to with matcha – and of course, there is the jasmine which is very pleasant. There is some sharpness to the jasmine notes. I like the aroma of this as I take a sip… the jasmine is intoxicating.

Creamy and yummy… the bitterness does throw me off a bit though, so I am a little disappointed by it. Not extremely disappointed, because it’s still good… but it’s not as good as I hoped for.

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.
