Trying to brew through this big ol’ bag. Today I scooped a generous 1.5 teaspoons into my brew basket and dusted with the slightest pinch of matcha powder before dunking it in my mug. Today it brewed up my favorite shade of lime! Nice fullness and warmth and just the right balance of astringency. Dry finish.

I found a recipe for a green tea sugar scrub, and I think I will probably use this tea to make it with because it seems like it has a good ‘toning’ element. That, and that I still have a ton of this stuff.

Bio

I am lucky enough to make my living as a martial arts teacher and as a barista. When I’m not training or making cappuccinos, I relish cooking, reading, growing plants, and of course, drinking tea.

I love greens the most… the grassier the better! I also love oolongs and whites. I have a weak spot for anything with jasmine, mint, or lavender.
