Made this up with my new matcha set! Still missing my sieve. This one was just a teeny bit gritty at the bottom. More because I was at work and didn’t have time to whisk like a madwoman for long :P
Anyhow, I added a tiny squeeze of agave and a splash of milk which turned my cup in a lovely pastel green shade. Reminds me of my bedroom walls actually. In daylight, I’d bet they are a close match! The taste was ok, pleasant. Oddly, it was better without the milk. One day, I’ll give it a go with almond milk and see what that does.
Been going a bit crazy the last week. My work contract is ending soon and I NEED to have a job so I’ve been networking all over the place, or atleast started to. Getting my Linked In profile updated etc. I should go check my birth certificate, my middle name might have been changed to stress!
Darn, I wish I had the chamomile matcha tea. Le sighs.

Keep positive! Everything eventually works out in the end.. even if it doesn’t always look that way (I know I know.. easy thing to say.. but deep breath and push on!)

Profile

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
