Wewt! Got my tin (I was one of the 10 winners) today, and, of course, immediately had to try it despite saying I was going to avoid caffeine for the next few days. What I actually meant when I said that was “I am going to avoid caffeine unless something interesting and caffeinated shows up.” And it did! Hilariously, it came with a bamboo whisk and I had just gotten back home from buying one in anticipation of its arrival. Whoops!

For my first try, I just made it straight. Half a teaspoon, add water and make into a paste, add a bit more water and whiskity whisk whisk. Wow! This is REALLY good stuff. It’s so smooth and creamy – I don’t think I’ve had a matcha quite like it! It’s got just the right amount of vegetal undertone and it balances quite well with the creaminess. Yum! I could really get used to this.

I’m so glad I got the opportunity to try this – can’t wait to try the different variations on the DoMatcha site!

Congratulations Ewa!!

You’re kidding… hmmm… I hope mine comes w/ one- I want to get my best friend a matcha set so maybe I can find a cheap chawan and scoop.

Congrats Ewa :D I look forward to reading your “mad scientist experiments” with this ;)

Ewa

Thanks guys! So many things to try! So little time!

Mine came with one, too. I don’t have a chawan, though. I’d ordered one from Maeda-En with a steepster select but they held up my order over it after the sincha came in, so I bagged it. Now waiting to get one so I can give this a try the way it’s supposed to be tried. :-)

Ooh, I’m still waiting for mine (and hoping that my neighbors didn’t steal it…grr).

Ewa

Looks like it required a signature or some sort of acknowledgment of receipt, (I think my roommates accepted it) so hopefully that means it’s safe from your neighbors! Of course, that means it’s in danger from capricious delivery times….

Cofftea

No signature for me- mine came FedEx.

Ewa

Well, like I said, I wasn’t there. There was just a little “confirmation of receipt” thingy that I thought might have meant it needed a signature.

Thanks for the information, Ewa ;) I’ll have to keep an eye out for it….

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
