And that’s another matcha gone! (81) :O I try to drink one cup a day (a big one with 2 scoops!) and only keep 4 flavours open at a time to help out with the freshness.

What did I think? I like this – it’s creamy and sweet and enjoyable for times I don’t want to be overwhelmed by flavour (i.e., pumpkin matcha, or bubblegum). Would I get it again? Maybe. There are so many other options out there, but, I would’ve say no to more.

mmm i’m trying to do the same thing. I just haven’t been in the mood for matcha lately..and i’ve got a zillion different packages still. haha

I was doing really good with my one cup of matcha a day, then I just stopped lol, need to get back on that and finish up my older ones, I haven’t even tried out my new matcha bowl yet! Lol

My matcha is my biggest weakness in my collection, in that I’ve had them forever but I have gotten bad about drinking them. I need to start a 1-a-day program, maybe after Black Friday.

I just wish I went through my matcha faster so I could try new flavors!

drank Je t'aime by Nina's Paris
1681 tasting notes

I had a sample of this before, direct from Nina’s Paris, but JustJames surprised me with just a little more. And I’m happy he did. I still think this is my favourite from Nina’s Paris. I just love the caramel and vanilla.

I may have to pick up some for myself. :)

It’s cold. I think it’s a good morning to visit Mount Gray and tour its blustery peaks.

drank Pu-erh Cocoa-spice by Tealux
1681 tasting notes

Wow. I just got hit with a blast of cocoa. I love it. There’s not much puerh to this, but the chocolate and cinnamon are so good. The chili adds a nice bit of kick too!

I think this would make an awesome latte!

drank Thé de Lune by Mariage Frères
1681 tasting notes

We went to the zoo today and I rushed out the door without any tea and while we had a great AWESOME day, (especially because no one was there!) I’m totally drained and in need of tea.

I wanted something fantastic, and this is it.

I can’t believe JustJames sent a sample of this as I would totally be tempted to hoard it. :P OTOH, when you have something fantastic it’s exciting to see how others like it too. Either way, THANK YOU. :P

And so, how to describe this? I wish I hadn’t drank all of this today in a way because my head isn’t quite able to describe this.

It’s liquid moonlight. Vanilla dancing with cornflowers. Soft perfume floating in the air and a touch of sweet blackberry fruit to give it some weight.

I had Adagio’s Jane Austen Mafia yesterday, and this is the grown-up version of that. Superb.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 45 sec

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea
1681 tasting notes

This is my standby tea for roleplaying day. It’s just a great tea, and one that I always want to re-steep, which makes it easier/quicker for me to refill while we play!

MissB

Ah, roleyplaying day! I love it. I have a board game playing day, however yours sounds much cooler.

drank Violette by Dammann Freres
1681 tasting notes

And here’s another fantastic sample from JustJames. The base is light and delicate in a way that I associate with french teas, while the smell of violets pervades the cup.

This is an enjoyable cup, but not one that I would go out of my way to pursue – I just don’t think I’m THAT into floral teas. Still, I won’t say no to the occasional cup.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
