RE: “but it messes up the whole tea experience.”… GASP! lol! j/k:) Maybe you’d think differently if you had a matcha mill:) Why did you grind them if you were going to decant? There’s a reason the leaves didn’t dissolve. Matcha powder does not dissolve in water- the particles are simply suspended in the water- it’s not like the jarred instant tea.

Ricky

True, I was thinking of Lupicia’s matcha latte which dissolves. I figured the flavors would be stronger if it was powdered.

Is this the one from the sampler, or another one?

I’ve been here almost a year too! 6 more weeks. My how steepster has changed in the last year… I think we’re due for more:)

Ricky

Well I got several months more before I hit that one year, but yes, it definitely has changed a lot. All this tea….. lol

Paul M Tracy

Thank you! I couldn’t quite put into words what I was getting with this tea. “Plastic” is just about right.

Ricky

Glad, I’m not alone on that. Adagio’s a great starter though. I don’t regret getting this tea a while back.

Angrboda

Ha! I read that as if you said it was almost a year since you had last been logged on and had a O.o moment. :p

LENA

September will be my 1 year anniversary on Steepster…lol. Adagio is a great starter company. I’ve moved forward so much in my tea life since a year ago.

Happy anniversary!

I can’t wait to my sampleset arrives!

Ricky

Samplers are so much fun! More companies have to jump on board and start producing sampler packs.

Rijje

…every company should have samplers (and cute sampler tins!)

Ricky

Instead of plastic / foil baggies?

Yeah, only company that packs sampler tins I can think of is Adagio.

Cofftea

Actually as a person who has almost exclusively sample sizes (2oz and smaller), while cute is attractive, I’d rather have resealable opaque bags. Those tins are just too cumbersome to store when you have as many as I do! lol. But then again most people probably don’t have as many as I do lol.

Paul M Tracy

I should just sign off Steepster until I can get to my Canton sampler pack. (It’s sitting on my office desk while I’m away.) The tea-envy is getting to me.
