I freaking love this tea. I’m surprised I haven’t reviewed it before. Oh well.

As we were packaging up some of this for Christina, I knew I needed to have some soon. Unfortunately, every time I remembered it, it was after 4 pm and I knew that if I had a cup, I wouldn’t sleep.

But today, it was awful hard to get up, so I am all over this matcha thing. This matcha is lovely, I’m drinking it cold with some sugar and it tastes just like a wintergreen lifesaver. Yum.

I am embarking on my “discover all the matcha!” journey, and wintergreen is also among my favourite mint tastes. May I ask what level of flavouring you thought was appropriate for this matcha? nom!

Is this one any good in milk? I only do my matcha one of two ways; club soda or cold milk. I don’t think it’d be great as soda – but I’m thinking it might make for an interesting, creamy “candy cane” like milk drink.

keychange – I ordered all of my matcha at the delicate level because at the time, Red Leaf Tea was still doing their “free matcha for reviews” and anything over delicate was extra $, though this one I would drink at any level, it’s so darn good.

Roswell – I imagine it would be, but I drink my matcha mixed with agave or sugar and water, so I can’t say for sure.

mmm i am so definitely doing this in milk when I get it! I bet it’d be awesome.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
