drank Morning Matcha by Matcha Source
220 tasting notes

Finally got my homemade matcha frappucino. I used this recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/matcha-green-tea-smoothie-or-iced-latte-133955

But I didn’t have any vanilla syrup, so I dashed in a little bit of vanilla extract.

I think it tastes pretty darn good!

I have to clean up the mess. And ice cubes are hard to blend, I had a couple of whole ones and big chunks. Maybe I’ll used the crushed ice setting on my fridge for the next one.

I also had to dig an old unused spare McDonalds straw from a drawer to drink it. My bendy straws were too skinny to hack the bigger ice pieces.

All in all, I’d do it again. It’s cheaper, and I don’t have to leave my air conditioned house. And it was fun!

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, my husband got me a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
