Sample #4
Powder Color: Bright green
Powder Smell: Seaweed
Powder Texture: Fine, slightly clumpy
Liquor Color: Olive green, froths up well
Tasting Notes: Few to no clumps. Darkly vegetal & not overly bitter, but has a sight metallic taste. After milk & honey added, it’s exceptionally smooth & creamy.

Sample#5
Powder Color: Light olive
Powder Smell: Vegetal
Powder Texture: Fine, not too clumpy
Liquor Color: dark green
Tasting Notes: Not so frothy, but mixed well. Tastes of bitter dark greens- Bitter even after milk & honey added, but metallic taste is gone. Slight chalkiness, but unpleasant.

Sample #6:
Powder color: Similar to 4, light olive
Powder texture: Very fine, not clumpy
Powder smell: light seaweed
Liquor color: Dark camo green, mixes well
Tasting Notes: Dark bitter greens, but surprisngly very little metallic bite. Chalky to the taste. With milk added- pleasantly vegetal- like pea soup! No chalk after adding more milk & honey, however I can see the Matcha starting to separate.

Sample #7:
Powder Color: Bright electric green
Powder texture: Super fine, slightly clumpy
Powder smell: Hay w/a little seaweed
Liquor color: Dark Green, but not olive. Took longer to mix in.
Tasting Notes: Bright, fresh, spring greens with just a touch of bitterness. Coppery Bright aftertaste w/a bit Of sweetness. Lovely fresh quality to it once milk & honey added. Slight chalkiness is the only distractor.

Sample #8
Powder Color: Similiar to #7, even brighter
Powder Texture: Similar to #7
Powder smell: hay & spring greens
Liquor color: A lovely emerald, a very fine froth- the teensiest bubbles! Very pretty matcha & I admit I’m having fun whisking this one.
Tasting Notes: Powerfully bitter on the first taste, But not metallic. After milk & honey, a pleasant Collared greens taste. Not as chalky as I would have thought- it stays mixed in. Might need to play around with the proportions when preparing this one. This one has some potential!

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
