I just did the most amazing thing and i will never make matcha any other way again. Oh yeah. I’m feeling pretty smart right now.

I have some friends coming over in a bit to watch the final four games and need a little caffeine boost before all the beer starts being guzzled so I thought I’d make an iced matcha. I’ve already got my kitchen all cleaned up so I didn’t want to make much of a mess. I was back in my little tea nook and saw my breville milk cafe that I use to froth milk and remembered that it’s also a hot chocolate maker. That got my brain thinking. What if I just throw water and a splash of milk in the thing and then throw my matcha right in there.

Holy S&%t it’s so creamy and delicious. Perfectly mixed and frothy and creamy. I was going to pour it over ice but no way. This is delicious as is! And all I have to do is rinse the frothing mug and it’s ready for another use. I need to do a review of just the frother. I love that thing.

oh yeah, the cheesecake flavor is good too. That’s probably worth mentioning!

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
