I really want to like Matcha, but I’m thinking making it myself is not the best place to start? It just doesn’t taste right. Too…I don’t know how to describe it? Grassy? Maybe I’m getting the ratio of water to tea wrong? I know it’s good for me, so I’m determined not to give up on it quite yet.

Pure matcha is usually pretty grassy. The only one I’ve tried without strong grassy notes is the KaiMatcha, which is more buttery.

Maybe try tossing some in a smoothie? It’s less intense that way but you can still taste the matcha, so it might help you get used to the flavour.

I tried the matcha at David’s. Couldn’t stomach it. KaiMatcha is amazing, and the flavoured ones from Red Leaf to :)

@Alphakitty and Indigobloom – Buttery is more my thing. I’ll have to give KaiMatcha a try. I’ll have to check out Red Leaf also…once I drink down some of the tea I already have of course ;)

@softrevolution – That’s a good idea. I’ll have to save what I have left for when the smoothie weather returns.

I drink my matcha as a latte, pretty much exclusively. Most of the matcha I have is lower quality though. (1 tsp per 12-16oz almond milk, plus sugar to taste)

I hear you Canadianadia, I feel exactly the same as you do… for some reason, Matcha is the ONLY tea I don’t care for. Wanted to love it for so long but just gave up! My supply of it is strictly used for smoothies. But I enjoy so many other types of greens that it doesn’t seem to matter much :-)

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
