drank Blueberry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
823 tasting notes

Another blend of blueberry and french vanilla matcha. I’m almost finished my blueberry matcha, which is probably a good thing, it is getting a bit more bitter every time I have it, just getting a bit old lol I’ve had it since December..but it still is tasty, don’t get me wrong! I made this with hot water as usual, I suppose I could add some sugar, but meh, it still is pretty good, and I don’t feel like moving. 7 hrs of lab = one tired me. This will rejuvenate and help me feel balanced. Gotta love matcha! See previous notes.

Aww, gotta love school. I need to get on my matcha consumption too so they won’t get bitter. There’s only so much one can drink in a day, though!

Haha I know what you mean, to both matcha and school. I would love to drink like 3 matchas a day, but I did the first day my order came in and I had like a caffeine hangover the next day, it was weird! I love my matchas though, I will definitely drink them quite regularly :)

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (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’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

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 recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

(as of 04/19/13)

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
