So I have been really lax in logging tea lately with the start of school and all. I have been drinking way more then I log, but my order from Lupicia came today so I have to log my new teas as I try them!!! I totally caved on purchasing a bunch of teas from Lupicia to get the newsletter and samples everyone month and then a little more to get free shipping – haha.

Anyway this is my first Matcha experience. When I first smelled this tea I was reminded of two things – one was green tea ice cream and the other has completely slipped my mind. I will update this later if I think of it. Anyway the package says to add milk and then microwave but I am low on milk and decided to make it with water (and my beloved electric kettle instead). So I whisked in about 8oz of hot water.

My first impression was that the tea was okay, but as it cooled it got awesomer and awesomer. I love the slight vegetatal (okay I tried spelling this word about 8 times and I am failing :( )bitterness (I like when you can tell green tea is GREEN tea) so anyway I like the bitterness mixed with the sweetness of the caramel flavor.

At the end of my cup it got a bit powdery so I mixed in some cold milk and that was awesome too. I think this would be really great as an iced tea made with milk and I will at some point try it with hot milk too.

This tea is most definitely a winner. I look forward to the rest of my pouch :)

Tea has always been a part of my life. A cup of tea was always the solution to middle school tears and high school early mornings.

When I was in college I started quite the little tea collection in my tiny kitchen cabinets.

I have definitely scaled back my tea ordering and tasting the past 2 years or so, but I am getting back into it.

Outside of tea my interests include reading, photography, too much tv, visiting new places, trying new restaurants and playing video games with my husband.
