drank green tea powder 250g pack by Tradition
1476 tasting notes

Over the last several days I have prepared hardly any tea except this one. I can’t function in the morning without my tea powder and milk. I’m out of flavored syrups to add to it. So just milk and some sweetener. No it is not Matcha but it is pretty good for as cheap as it is on Amazon.

We have our first real snow of the winter so I hope that means I have time for tea.

Did you ever try the one from Nuvola? Pretty darned good and amazingly cheap back when I bought it. Just be sure to change the currency to US dollars. I almost fainted when I saw the Hong Kong dollars price!

I have not tried it. Looks pretty high class compared to this one. This is like the Great Value version of green tea powder. It’s less than $11 for 250g.

As usual started my day with this one. Somehow I got busy yesterday and never drank any tea but this one – ONE – glass. Glad I like it.

Learned something new to share. Went to the Pulmonologist Monday afternoon. He put me on a bronchodilator medicine. I started reading up on this particular medicine. Turns out it is a naturally occurring part of tea. The amount is too small to be considered a dosage but it is there. So occasionally when a tea gives me the sensation of breathing down to my toes – it may really be helping to do just that. Finally a health claim for tea I am willing to consider.

Not sure what I did different today. This is the best frap yet out of this brand. It is really inexpensive but today it is as flavorful as some of the brands I’ve tried that were 4 times pricier – which is still pretty reasonable.

It’s a good thing this was tasty. I have been on hold for 50 minutes with insurance. All I want to check is if my pulmonologist and medical equipment place are in network this year – because you never know. Their website doesn’t work well so I couldn’t get answers without calling. Arrrrrggggghhh! I’m kind of homebound for now. My portable oxygen machine seems to be on the fritz. I had already made the Dr. appointment before the machine went wonky, so this was an added bonus. Good times. This too shall pass.

I hope everything gets worked out!

After finally getting to talk to someone at insurance, I was only on the phone a couple minutes after one hour on hold. ha. Got my answers. In the meantime my wife returned with the machine. It wouldn’t act up in the shop. Maybe being unplugged for several hours reset it. We’ll see.

Let me begin by saying, it is cold here. Negative numbers cold. So I have a box of Swiss Miss Candy Cane and some green tea powder. Hmmmm. Yeah, the idea is a good one, but the reality, not so much. The powder wanted to clump in warm milk. I usually use an ounce of room temperature water and it mixes fine. Maybe the carragean (sp?) in the Swiss Miss caused it to clump. Anyway the peppermint tasted old and the tea was BITTER. Live and learn. On to the next.

Sounded like a good approach, theoretically.

Went back to my normal powder, milk, vanilla, and caramel syrup. Not a drop of Diet Coke. Some things do not have to be repeated before the lesson is learned ;-{)>

gmathis

Ah, but where would the world be if creative people didn’t attempt anything creative?

K S

Without cell phones? Would that really be so bad? Just kidding. I love my phone. It’s everyone else’s I can’t stand. Yeah, I just got back from town lol.

I was actually thinking about the inventive Chinese emperor (circa 3000 BC or so) that sipped his kettle of water after some leaves fell in it. Today I am pretty solidly anti-technology, particularly in the area of can openers. We are on our third one new out of the box that did not work properly.

K S

Sure glad the emperor didn’t have a leaf fall in to his Diet Coke ;) as for anti-tech, well let me just add the Keurig we gave our son for Christmas already has a voluntary recall. sigh

Under the heading of not my brightest idea – this morning instead of starting with room temp water to dissolve the powder, I used room temp diet Coke. I like Coke and milk, but green tea powder does not. I drank it anyway :)

My dashboard isn’t updating – surprise!

Happy Ho Ho anyway.

Nicole

You drank it anyway. What a trooper. :) That sounds… nasty. I like Coke floats so I guess I could say I like Coke & milk. But matcha… brave soul you are. :)

K S

Green tea powder and milk every morning. Add some vanilla and its very good, at least I think so. Of course I just added Diet Coke, so what do I know?

tea-sipper

Wooee.. not hopefully matcha, milk AND Diet Coke?!

Mikumofu

Sounds…creative, haha!

Riimu

So, weird combinations with tea powder continue.

I saw this mentioned in a discussion. Read the reviews – Gingko and The DJ Booth both seemed impressed. I drink green tea powder everyday and let’s face it, I’m cheap. I looked this up on Amazon and it was like $10.50 for over half a pound of tea. I got free shipping with some accompanying Christmas present orders. This is half the price of what I normally drink. The company is in Taiwan, so I believe the tea comes from there as well.

Long introduction to say with the addition of milk and flavoring added, I can tell very little difference between this and the costlier (but still pretty cheap) version. I’ll watch it for a few days before totally committing – although with over 8 oz of it, I am kind of committed anyway. What difference I did note was this may be a little less bitter, with a little less potent flavor. Or maybe, I just haven’t got my mix right yet. Either way, I am satisfied at the moment.

That’s my strawberry tea people…can’t be too bad!

K S

I thought the strawberry tea was from Good-Young or something like that. I have searched for a strawberry tea I like as well – haven’t found one yet. Next time I am near the world mart I need to try Ahmad Strawberry. They have never let me down yet.

gmathis

I think it’s got about twelve names, but Traditions is also on the box. We were at a World Market last weekend (I was so-o-o-o-o good in the tea aisle, I still have claw marks on my palms from clenching my hands). But not much Ahmad there at all.

K S

I remember the Traditions/Good Young thing now. I have a tin of loose poo like that. Mostly not English. I think I had it for a year before I learned the company that distributed it.

I know too well the claw marks but it did allow the Ahmad to stay in the store – until next time.

I have found this at the asian grocery near me. The flavor is good. Not to much different than other matchas I have had. Don’t know much about it, but for the price it is great standalone or in a post run smoothie. I would recomend sifting it before making tea cause it tends to be clumpy.

drank rose green tea by Tradition
1015 tasting notes

This is a tea that my sister-in-law picked up at the Hong Kong Marketplace. She gave me a few bags to take home, and I proceeded to put them in my cabinet even though I didn’t think I would like it at all. I haven’t been a big fan of rose and I was afraid the green tea would be strange with the rose. I was actually very wrong.

This tea is really good. It is not overly floral, just slightly and the green tea is very light but tasty. I don’t think I would want an entire box of this but I am enjoying the few bags I have. They are especially comforting right before bed.

I am 100% happy with this product, considering both its quality and price.

First, I would like to point out this is not a matcha product. Even though the pack says “matcha”, it’s really just a green tea product. The package is labeled this way because many Asian people take matcha and green tea powder as the same concept, however in Japan, matcha is strictly distinguished from other green tea products.

This green tea powder product from Asian grocery. It’s fine enough to function as “matcha” in desserts. The pack is half a pound, all for several dollars. I don’t think I could ever possibly finish this big pack.

I use this powder and light cream to make green tea popsicles. The green tea taste is very refreshing. It stands out from the background cream flavor very well. This is my favorite summer cold dessert.

Another easy way to use this powder is “matcha” milk tea – similar to starbucks matcha frappucchino. 1/4 teaspoon of green tea powder in a glass of milk, stir with a chopstick or an electric milk froth maker. Easy and yummy!

Fake matcha… sad day!

Gingko (manager of Life in Teacup)

I wouldn’t call it fake matcha, because matcha in Japanese and Chinese simply means fine green tea powder. But matcha as a specific term now means the finest form of this kind of powder. It is worth noticing, though, many Asian products labeled as “matcha” are not matcha in the most real sense.

SimpliciTEA

If I get my hands of any of this, I may try your ‘matcha milk tea’ idea’. I guess that’s basically like a matcha latte?

Get’s very frothy. Yummy when made into a thin tea as opposed to thick. Powdery after taste on tongue.
