Had to pick up this blend during my first visit to their Chicago store on Division. Great store. Really wish I could have geeked out more but it was hot out and I was with my family.

Anyway. Very unique blend! The black tea comes out the more you steep it. Really an interesting blend. So much going on. Don’t even know where to begin.

I’m hoping I can get up there and visit that store before winter makes it too cold. Love it!

What a lovely tea! It smells great. The flavors are a perfect blend. Great addition to these cinnamon rolls. The flavors blend so well it’s almost hard to pick them apart. You can get a feeling for the base on first impact but it’s quickly taken over by fruity sensations.

What a gorgeous color! Couldn’t pass up trying this one. My mixer broke so I’m using my blender… Not quite the same. But I imagine the taste is pretty much the same. Very smooth with a bit of creaminess. A bit earthy at first but it finishes grassy.

Did you know the difference between vanilla and French vanilla is eggs? Had to look it up. They say french vanilla is a bit more camarel, floral, and custard like. I can see that now. This matcha brings out that flavor pretty well. Custard, definitely.
Cream. Vanilla of course.
Yea. I quite enjoy this one.
Used almond milk and mixed matcha with water.

Not quite sure of why they decided to name it Tokyo. I don’t picture any of the places we went while I’m sipping it. Ok wait no I just pictured one of the grocery stores. Those were always fun to walk around in. It’s nothing special in taste. Grassy. Can’t really taste the sesame seeds…

I need some whip cream. Currently drinking this cold because it’s warm out. Just threw 6 oz in the blender followed by 1tsp of matcha. Great chocolate smell emits itself from the package. The taste is also much better then I was expecting. Oh man…. I just had a great thought! Mix this with the orange matcha. Oh that is so happening!

Oh, this makes me crave matcha!

Can’t wait to get home amd make this with some almond milk. Just mixing it with water in a cup I can tell it’s good but doesn’t quite do it justice.

On a trip right now so have to brew the matcha in whatever fashion I can. Most of the time it involves dumping it into a small water bottle and shaking vigorously. This I brewed with hot water and stired with a plastic stir stick. Real fancy…

Definitely getting some hints of sunshine state oranges in there. Not as much…. Uh… Orange zing? As I thought there would be though.

Brewed this the easy way. Dumped the rest of the half tsp in a cup and the poured hot water on it. A bit dry which is weird to say for a liquid but somehow we all get it. As it settles it tastes better. Honestly, I prefer the deluxe oolong from rlt that tastes like oolong over this

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
