drank Champagne Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
1195 tasting notes

I’m so tired of rain!!! And tomorrow’s supposed to be even worse. It’s already been bad for my garden. I ran over there today around 10, because I thought it wasn’t supposed to rain until this afternoon and already the ground around my plot was puddling water. But I got a cucumber.

I realize I haven’t been drinking much tea, or I’ve been drinking the same tea in large 2 quart quantities. And now it’s probably going to dwindle more because I’m inevitably going to get back on coffee too considering the markout you get weekly as a Sbux employee. (Can you imagine if they eventually include something From Teavana in there??? I’d die.) btw my manager loves Harney & Sons so I’m gonna constantly be bringing her other teas to try haha.

Ok so, actually because it’s cooled so much I’m gonna spend the evening drinking hot tea. But first I was really feeling some matcha. I bought club soda to make Italian cream sodas but I couldn’t help but use the remnants of a bottle with some of this matcha. I think 1/4 the bottle was full so if I made a huge mistake by shaking it, I wasn’t going to get matcha water everywhere.

It’s. So. Good. It tastes SO much better this way. It tastes more like champagne but it doesn’t have the bite from the bubbles, while still having them. If that makes sense. I think it also takes away from the weird fruity gum flavor I felt this has some other times I have had it.

I’m going to have to reload up on club soda because I wanted to try tea pops too again, AND I have to try the orange/cola mix I love so dearly this way.

I’ve been drinking the same tea over and over too. It can easily happen. Awesome work experimenting with the matcha and club soda! That’s really creative!

I have so many samples & swaps I need to get around to, and I’m chugging along at only 2 or 3 (if I’m lucky) cups a day :/

For the last 4 days I’ve been making tea, staring at it for hours and hours and then pouring it out. Doesn’t matter which tea. It’s getting very wasteful. I don’t know why either. And I still can’t get my iced tea right.
