Confessions of a matcha newb: I purchased a tin of this with the intention of making green tea ice cream, which I never got around to doing. So there it sat in my cupboard for, um, several years. Now, armed with my new Steepster knowledge, I’m making a matcha latte every morning and feeling quite proud of myself! Nothing fancy — just sifting half a teaspoon of matcha into my 16 oz. mug, blending it with a bit of 1% milk and Torani sugar-free syrup, and then adding another cup of heated milk frothed with a Bonjour Caffe Froth Turbo. Having as yet nothing to compare this matcha to, possibly all I can say of any value would be that, even sitting unopened in a cupboard for several years, the color was still bright and the smell fresh and strong. (Now that I’ve opened it, I’m keeping it in the freezer.) I’ll definitely use this up.

Profile

Bio

Artist, musician, homemaker.

Long-time haphazard tea drinker who’s gradually becoming more knowledgeable and better focused on tea’s subtleties and complexities.

Favorite teas are pu-erh, flavored blacks and simple unadorned greens. Also have a fetish for sweet, flavored matcha lattes. I’ve seldom tasted a tea I couldn’t drink and will try pretty much anything at least once.

Not big on ceremony, my teaware of choice is a large, lidded infuser in a large glass mug. Not very exotic, but it gets the job done.

SO happy to have found this group!
