Got my latest Della Terra Teas order! They ship so fast! Got it in two days! Was a little disappointed because there wasn’t a sample like last time. Oh well. Not like I need more tea at the moment. I got love in a cup, dubbele chocolade, apple cinnamon yogurt, and vanilla creme!

That sounds delicious!

I received my Caramel matcha from Red Leaf today. :) It was my first matcha, and I’m not writing a tasting note for it yet, because I think my first cup was user error. xD; It’s not supposed to be overly bitter, but it was KICK MY FACE IN bitter. xD So I’ll try again and when I make it properly, I’ll write a taste note.

How much matcha did you use? Hot, warm, or cold water? How long did you whisk?

Chizakura said

I did half a teaspoon, and I did 185 degree water. The bowl I poured it in wasn’t pre-heated though, so that probably cooled it down to about 180ish. I suspect I just didn’t whisk long enough, but if you have any suggestions I’m all ears. :)

Emily M said

I’d try a bit cooler water with flavored matcha. I’ve had better luck when the water was warm, and not hot. While I don’t prefer cold/room temp water for matcha, some people seem to have some luck with it, so you may also want to test that out.
I also whisk my matcha for a long time, and very vigorously.
Just experiment a little and see if you can’t find your preference. =)

Chizakura said

Cooler water, thankyou. :) That’s a good idea. And yes, I’ll definitely try whisking longer. Thanks for the suggestion.

Emily M said

No problem! =)
Hope you find a way to enjoy it.

ewwww, that makes me imagine gruesome! hahahahaha

Alphakitty said

Haha I am rather protective of my kitten tea (it’s just so goooood), but when I run out I think I’ll just order a whole pound and split it with my mom

yssah said

kitten tea?

yssah, the packaging of Sun and Cloud Mist features the image of a kitten in a marshmallow cloud with the lemon sun in the background. It’s one of Frank’s best blends, in my opinion. :)
