drank Blueberry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
996 tasting notes

I am finally just about done this, it is getting pretty strong as it is fairly old. This morning I was wanting something sweet because it’s Easter and I don’t have any candy (insert sadface) so I mixed this with my caramel matcha, half tsp of each. I then added about a half tsp of sugar after whisking with hot water. The result is not too bad, but the blueberry is mostly overpowering the caramel and it is pretty strong. The caramel is mostly present in the later part of the sip. Not bad, and I am feeling the matcha energy! Perfect for working on my one paper of the term! (how I dislike papers lol) See previous notes on both of these matchas :)

Oh, and Hoppy Easter!

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.
