16 oz, soy, and whipped cream

I have been wanting to try this, so I dragged my boyfriend with me to get one. At first, I thought that the green tea was really bitter. As I kept drinking it, the better the taste got and the more I liked it. It is really nice to have on a warm day and it was my very first taste of matcha. I wanted to try it in something before I decided to get a tin for myself. I am glad to say that it did not put me off of matcha and it makes me want to try it for myself even more now.

Even though I don’t really care for coffee, I would go to Starbucks again to get this. It was really tasty.

I am happy you liked it, I have tried it twice and found it to have a really powdery taste to it.

but, it makes me want to go out and try it again.

I thought it had a powdery taste to it when I first sipped it. But it grew on me quite quickly.

Hot with milk. Perfect to curl up to with a book on a rainy day.

I know I had something written here, but I don’t remember what it was. Probably something about me being boring with my tea choices lately and needing new tea.

I probably had this cup hot with milk. I really like this tea that way. Especially if I drink it in the morning.

Dad keeps this tea in the house, so I decided to try it. I heated the water up in a smaller tea cup, so I think I got the water too hot. I also decided to add honey to it. Five drops of liquified honey.

This doesn’t really have a taste to it. It is really smooth though. Not what I was hoping for in this cup.

I forgot that I really shouldn’t let this get cold when I am drinking it. At least, not on an empty stomach. I had a really rough morning with my brother and the animals so this is the only thing I can get down right now. Tea saves my sanity.

Hot with just a touch of milk. Just enough to give it a creamier mouth feel, but not enough to start to cover up the green tea.

After reading some reviews of different chocolate teas, I decided that I would really like a cup of chocolate tea. There was only one problem: I didn’t have any chocolate tea. After some thinking, I came up with a compromise. Make a cup of this and add some chocolate milk to it.

It isn’t that bad either. I could have brewed the tea a little stronger for more of a tea taste, but the black tea is there. It lingers at the back of your throat at the last minute. The milk mellowed the tea out a lot. More so than plain milk. I’m not sure why.

If I was going to do this again, I think I would pick a stronger tea to do it with. Probably something like Irish Breakfast so the tea would stand out more. Or break down and get some chocolate tea and try it. This will do fine in a pinch though.

The last bag from the Charleston Tea Plantation. This is such a nice cup of tea. It tastes clean and fresh. It is a very plain tea, so I bet it would be good in almost any tea preparation. I would totally get some of this tea as a safe tea to carry around in areas where you can’t control the water temperature very well. Like a college where you have to pick between a communal tea kettle or the boiled water that is in the cafeteria.

Hot with milk. Surprisingly good with hot dogs.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
