My plan when I went upstairs to make tea was to prepare some whites and maybe a fruit tisane. I also planned to make a second cup of matcha. Somehow that turned into me grabbing older swaps instead and making two green teas, an oolong, and eating some yogurt (which did not come in a swap).
This is one of the teas I picked up in Janelle’s stash sale a few months back. It was never something that interested me in store but people speak so highly of it here that I though I would give it a try. Unfortunately the sample I got looks pretty crushed so hopefully that doesn’t have an effect on the taste.
Tastewise, this is pretty vegetal. I am getting a lot of butteriness but none of the apple or maple I hear so much about. It is almost like drinking the melted butter they put on popcorn at movie theatres…well if that popcorn also had a vegetal green tea component. This really is not for me. I am trying to drink the cup but honestly I think this is getting dumped.
