Third and final matcha of the day. Oh, and I left a bit of french vanilla in my cup earlier and it cooled off and was delicious! Will have to try making them with ice at some point :D anyways, onto this one.

The smell, yes,as DaisyChubb said, is spot on nibs, but leading into a juicier scent of black cherries. But yeah, mostly nibs, now I want nibs!! Haha, so I sifted and whisked 1 tsp of this delicious smelling matcha, which is basic grade, robust flavoring I should add, into hot water and am trying it this way first as per usual. Mmmm the smell is sooo good! I got a tiny bit of that cherry medicine in the smell, but only a bit, and it’s mostly delicious cherries. And as for taste, another delicious matcha! The flavoring is lovely here, nice and fresh matcha with a black cherry aftertaste. I love black cherry ice cream, and this hits the black cherry pretty good, so I can’t wait to try it with the cheesecake or vanilla to add the creaminess! I must say, the fruit matchas are a lot more fresh and natural to me with the matcha, but I really like the dessert ones too. I might add a bit of sugar, as I did with the blueberry, to see if it brings out the cherry a bit more.

Overall, I am really enjoying this one. And hopefully this will give me the kick to continue working on my giant project for my financial class. Another excellent matcha from Red Leaf! :D thanks Sil and ashmanra for the flavor suggestions again!!

ETA: I added a bit of sugar. Guhh. Now this is full on CHERRY. Yess. I cannot wait to mix this with the dessert matchas, as they will provide the perfect sweetness for this one sans sugar. But for now, I will sip this away and be content. :)

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
