Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this Matcha.

This is very interesting. I had never heard of Gymnema Sylvestre, but if it helps to keep that sweet tooth under control, then I am definitely excited about this herb.

This is a delicious Matcha, but it is a little different. It isn’t as foamy or frothy as some Matcha, it foams up after whisking, but it disappears rather quickly. The flavor is a bit more even than a typical Matcha. That is to say, it isn’t as distinctly grassy or bitter as a typical bowl of Matcha. It is more of an even-tempered flavor with fewer high notes. The sweet, vegetative and even bitter tones are still there, just not quite as distinct as they would normally be with a typical chawan full of Matcha.

As I near the end of my chawan of this Matcha, I notice more of a herbal-y kind of flavor. It isn’t off-putting, just definitely different from the normal Matcha flavors.

A very enjoyable, albeit different, bowl of Matcha!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
