As a drink, this one wasn’t working out for me. Trying to find a balance between the number of packets, the size of the cup, and milk vs. water to get the consistency I wanted was just kind of a hassle. However, I did try mixing it with vanilla ice cream, and YUM! :D

Chamomile tea + Kindle + electric blanket = the perfect way to relax on a chilly night. Aaaah. :]
This is a matcha powder that comes in individual packets.
I made a cup this morning and was a little disappointed with the results. I expected a richer taste, and even though I used only a small cup of hot water, the taste was a bit thin, almost watery even. Next time, I will try using two packets or mixing it with milk instead of water to achieve the thicker, creamier taste I was hoping for.
I’m not giving up on this one just yet! If it doesn’t work out as a drink, I could always find other uses for it — maybe in ice cream? :)
This is the Asian equivalent of Lipton Hot Tea (it was actually already in my apartment — left behind by the previous tenant — when I moved in… hm…) Generic, basic black tea, it’s nothing to write home about, but it works when you just need something hot to drink. With the addition of some honey and lemon juice, it’s my go-to drink whenever I have a sore throat. It can get bitter if brewed for more than a few minutes.
This tea was imported by the sister of a friend. Not a bad Ti Kuan Yin. Nice and smooth, and quite a strong flavour despite the fact that it’s been sitting in the cupboard for a while.
