Note: I woke up this morning wanting for a cup of Matcha and I reached for this Green Tea Powder that I have had and enjoyed. So nothing newly; I simply take a teaspoon of the green powder and put in a tea cup and I pour the boiled water into the cup and begin stirring it until all the tea powder has dissolved. I am always amazed at how green the tea is and smells strongly of the sea…seaweed like or marine algae. When I sip it, a nice light tinge in on my palate upon swallowing the tea and I take another sip and another until the tea is gone.

In recent past I have tried both the matcha teas and this green tea powder cold and hot; I find I prefer them hot and this is because of the warmth that comes with holding a hot cup of tea in your hand; as this makes you want to hug it or hold it tighter; whereas if it is cold you simply want to be done with it and put it away.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
