2.5tsp caramel, 1.5tsp cheescake, plus some almond milk and 1/2tsp of sugar.
I had to make it a strong one so that it would fill up my large mug, and so it could overpower the almond! and it worked. Well mostly.
There was a little more almond than I would have liked but then the matcha was edging on bitterness. Hrm. How to fix that… think think think! (I heart Winnie)
I gave some to my aunt and you should have seen her eyes. They bugged out, it was too funny! but she had to reluctantly give the mug back because it was too late in the day for more caffeine. (she had coffee and I made a cuppa Curiosity brew) So, I’m making her one for breakfast :P
Anyhow, I have a job interview this morning and was full of nerves last night so couldn’t sleep! not good right before bedtime!
Really hoping I get it. It’s an HR/Marketing/Admin role so right up my alley. Oh man I want this…
(Somehow I forgot to post this? written last night so if you see any past/present tense confusion that’s why!)

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!
