So this is one of the matchas I forgot in Florida in January but I remembered to bring it back with me when I returned from my most recent trip. Being St. Patrick’s Day, I found it a fitting time to have another cup of this. Unfortunately, all the sweet, creamy, milkiness is being covered up by a really strong vegetal taste from the base. I am confused though as this has never been grassy/vegetal before and it was prepared the same way it usually is. Bad news? This cup is getting dumped because it is just not good. Good news? I can now try a different matcha milk :)

Woot for other matcha milks, though an unfortunate end for this one.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
