621 Tasting Notes
Pretty sure vanilla almond milk is my new best friend for flavoured matchas!
I haven’t tried it with a straight matcha, but maybe monday I’ll try it out :)
My school schedule is perfect this quarter. Monday 2-4, Tuesday 1-5, Wednesday 2-6, and Thursday 1-3. IT’S FREAKIN PERFECT. I’ve decided that I’ll have matcha before class every morning so I won’t fall asleep in class hehe :))
Oh oh oh HELLO.
So I legit went to the store this morning because I wanted matcha and I had no milk, so I just got my usual fat free milk and I got vanilla almond milk as well because… Dude I was just craving that right now okay.
So I made this matcha with my vanilla almond milk and DANG THIS BRINGS OUT THE FLAVOURS SO MUCH 15/10 WOULD RECOMMEND
So thankful for the Teeny Tiny TTB because even though it’s a baby box, there’s a ton of tea inside!
I’ve been meaning to try straight gunpowder for a while, but I never had the chance to till now! I’ve had it in blends, but never alone. Needless to say, I really like this tea and I think I’m going to keep it :)
Teeny Tiny TTB!!
Ahhh I got the box today and it’s such a teeny little box but ALL THE TEAS INSIDE WOW THERE’S SO MANY.
I wanna try them all but there’s a TON and I know I won’t be able to.
I’m weighing out my tea. Using the smallest teacup I have, just a wee gram of each tea just to taste it and I’m taking what I want, and replacing it with one of my own.
First tea out of the box that I tried was this! Sadly, a lot of the teas smell similar since it’s such a teeny little thing, so I couldn’t really smell this tea, but steeping it, it smells so much nicer than the spice that I was getting earlier. A nice, bright oolong, and it tastes great as well. Not too strong, not too weak. A lovely tea and one I’ll definitely keep for myself hehe :)
Oh darn. This definitely got bitter :( I was talking to my roommate about spring break shenanigans and I got distracted and BITTERNESS UGH.
But with enough tampering with sugar and water and milk and things, I have an *okay cup.
It’s in my timolino now and I’ll be heading off to my first class of the quarter soon :)
So I flew an hour from NorCal to SoCal and I wanted to drink tea but I left my sachets with my mum back home so I figured that these little beauties would be great to drink on the plane :)
Yep. I asked for a cup of hot water and dropped these little bad boys in :)
It was actually really good! I had a great cup, but it definitely started getting bitter by the end of the cup. Not the best way to drink tea, but good enough who where I was at. I’ll be trying these sometime this week, this time actually taking time to make the right cuppa :)
So many teas to log and this should be the last of them!
I’m enjoying this tea along with my Oh Canada. Both were cold brewed overnight and both were a success.
Oh Canada definitely has more of a… rustic/darker taste, while this one is so very BRIGHT.
This one works great as a hot or cold tea so I’m enjoying myself very much. It did turn a bit sour, but nothing a small pinch of sugar couldn’t fix :)
Made this tea, threw into my Timolino with a drop or two of agave and drove 2 hours to Sonoma to visit my sister. Finally got to her apartment and started drinking my Blueberry Jam and it’s still nice and hot and beautiful! I was so happy when I weighed my tea and realized I had enough for two more cups, so the next cup would be a sipdown :(
I had my sister try this tea and she liked it! And she got mad because I never told her that it was hot and she spilled on herself ahhah. Well, I did tell her that the timolinos keep these teas freakin hot all the time! Just because it’s been sitting there for nearly 3 hours doesn’t mean that it’s gone ice cold :)
