Finished off the last of my straight matcha last night making a green tea mochi cake!

I used that recipe, but sifted 2tsp matcha into the rice flour. It was REALLY GOOD! I’m wondering how it would taste using flavored matcha now…maybe I’ll try that some day :)

Made this one into a smoothie for breakfast with a banana, some peanut butter, ice and unsweetened almond milk. Very nice!

Another cold brew backlog. Thanks again Courtney for letting my buy this from you!

I am LOVING this one cold brewed. Pineapple and creamy coconutty goodness! It almost has a marshmallowy quality yet is still totally unsweetened!

Sounds like something to try by the pool this summer!

Cold Brew Backlog!

I’m almost out of this, but I have more on the way, YAY! I’m finding I really enjoy flavored senchas cold brewed, and nothing could be quicker or easier! I will be doing this a lot this spring and summer, I think.

Sil

i keep meaning to order this one heh…

Stephanie

They have a flavored tasting pack right now, Sil with 1oz of each of this, apple, grape, and sakura! In stock until the sakura sells out :)

Sil

yeah..i saw that. pretty tempting but i’m also REALLY trying to be good…so maybe i can hold out until next year hahahaha

Stephanie

I understand completely!

Fjellrev

Funny, I was JUST thinking about Den’s last night, and how I haven’t ordered from the in two years. This definitely sounds like it would make an excellent cold brew!

Stephanie

Now is a great time to remember about Den’s because it is Sakura Sencha time! Limited edition seasonal :)

I was in the mood for something SPRINGish today :)

This is really hitting the spot! Sad I only have one serving left but I guess I need to make room in my cupboard for all the Japanese greens I ordered yesterday…this will be missed though when it is gone. I would definitely buy this one again in a heartbeat!

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Sample sipdown!

Got this in a 5 pack with other flavored white teas a while back. All of them were pretty good, but this was one of my favorites from the set. I would re-stock but the Golden Moon coconut oolong fills the coconut flavored tea space in my cupboard. It is a lighter bodied oolong and similar enough to the white that I don’t feel I need both. This is very good though, and if you like coconut a lot you should probably try it! :)

This tea is so luxurious! I really enjoyed this one. Perfect when you are in the mood for something delicate and floral. I’m a big fan of all Butiki white tea flavored blends :)

Oops I posted this review in the wrong spot originally…

Thanks to Nicholas at Misty Peak Teas for providing a sample of this tea!

This is an extremely SMOOTH and SWEET sheng! Yet still very lively and bright tasting. Extremely yummy. I wish I could afford a whole cake :)

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
