Woot! Came home to this awesome new interface. I want to play… :)

Thanks to Sil for sharing this with me, I’m really glad you were able to part with a bit of matcha for me to try.

I smelled just the normal matcha smell opening up this bag as well as during mixing. It’s Distinctive-level flavoring, so I guess it could go either way. I do eat a LOT of macadamia nuts, so I was really looking for that flavor. What I got however was a strong buttery taste, followed by a nondescript nut flavor. That was it. Boo. I did play with it a bit (matcha and liquid) and this was the volume of water and amount of matcha that it tasted the best at, for me. Still yummy and delicious, however I wanted macadamia nut praline, darn it! :)

Flavors: Butter, Nuts

Preparation
Iced 0 tsp 3 OZ / 78 ML

Oh my. 0.25 tsp defaults to 0? Interesting. Good to know.

MissB

Oh wait, it’s all rounded up. Erp. this is a problem when using weird measurements. This was 1/4 tsp in 1/3 a cup of whipping cream – which SHOULD be 0.25 tsp in 2.67 oz.

whipping cream? really?

MissB

Yea, it sounds silly, however I’m currently on an eating regimen that requires me to eat 85% or more of my diet as fat (yes, this is totally legit, and yes, this is for medical purposes – it’s going beautifully!) Whipping cream is great in this case, although it still feels ridiculously indulgent.

Starfevre

Weird! Well, I hope your diet does what it’s supposed to! I can’t even drink 2% milk because it feels too thick.

MissB

It’s already cleared up 80% of the medical crud within a week, and to boot I’ve gone down one size in clothing. Added (surprising) perk!

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
