168 tasting notes

This is the first Matcha Tea that I have ever had.
I made this about a dozen times and I still never really loved it.
At first, I think the water was too hot and it was terribly bitter, finally got that figured out.
Over all the best taste I can get out of this one, is when I am on the tractor when we are baling and alfalfa particles get in my mouth.
Which is not terrible, but I am not sure I want to drink that regularly.
I was not overly impressed with my first Matcha experience.
Thank goodness I am all about second chances…

I am still fussing with my matcha to get used to it – one thing I read of is that often a small sweet cookie is eaten first to get sweetness in your mouth, then you drink the matcha. I need to find some small sweets of some sort to try this with, because I don’t generally keep anything but shortbread cookies around, and they are too crumbly for this.

Hmmm…an excuse to eat a sweet cookie?
I might have to look into this;)

Bio

A Farmer’s Wife who drinks her tea to forget the din of the world.
Love all tea, from black to herbal concoctions.
Usually start my day with black tea and then move on to Oolong or Green in the afternoon, then finish the day with a tisane.
Loose Leaf teas are my preference, I say “Free the Leaves!” :)
When I am not drinking tea, I enjoy knitting, baking, reading, playing with one of our rescue animals or working along side my husband on our farm.

My rating system is rather relaxed:
50’s or under- Um, is this tea or did I get this from the slop bucket?
60’s- Not really my thing, certainly will not be purchasing again.
70’s- I will give this tea a few more tries to see if it grows on me , right now it is okay but not thrilling me.
80’s- Like this tea a lot. It might be a tea that I have to be in a certain mood for and therefore not a daily drinker, but try to have on hand for those “moods”
90’s and higher- ADORE! Will never be without!

I most always drink my tea plain.
No sweeteners or milk/cream.
