Will I ever go to Japan? I dream of it! At least I can savor the amazing flavor of this matcha. Thanks to the heads up here on Steepster, I got this on sale. How could I resist? The flavor is so nuanced; delicate and robust at the same time. I just stare into the vivid green, inhaling that vegetal aroma…and just imagine I’m visiting Japan…

I ordered it on sale too! Did your order come with a weird free sample too? Some herbal pills for “urinary frequency”…?

Serenity

OMG Janefan YES. I was like, “errr…thanks…? Is there something I should know about this matcha??”

LOL [innocent bystander falls off chair, laughing]

And I was so excited at first, “ooh! Sample! Mabye MORE TEA!” : D

Janefan

I know! I realized the box was rattling (it really did sound like pills in a bottle) so I had to open it then and there. And cue disappointment. That is so weird, I mean what percentage of their customers can actually use these pills? It’s not like an herbal supplement just for general health. It’s for a specific ailment that I (luckily) do not have. I don’t know what to do with them! If anybody is reading this and may need them, please PM me. I’d be glad to give them a home. It’s a bottle of 30 pills.

Serenity

Great idea, Janefan, same here!

Bio

Although I can be heard to mutter “Dust! Fannings and dust!” when drinking a poor cup of tea, I really don’t think I’m a tea snob. Want to talk about your favorite tisane with jelly beans in it? I’m there. Want to talk about gyokuro and assam? Done. I welcome the chance to discuss all things tea and tea related because I’m that kind of nerd: a tea nerd. Other things I’m passionate about: my family: my husband and daughter and our Chihuahua and new cat; literature, and social justice. I have poor eyesight, a good temperament, an odd sense of humor and a lot of curiosity.
