This one was one I couldn’t pass up. I love Creme Brulee. Surprisingly it’s good cold too. Anyway onto the matcha. Nice rich green color. Great flavor. I started out with a little over a 1/2 tsp of matcha and mixed in hot water (about 3 tbsp of water) with my electric whisker. I need to get a bamboo one…. I then microwaved some almond milk and whisked it into the matcha. The water was hotter then I thought so I think I may have burnt the matcha a lil but once it cooled down…. nomnomnom

The taste is quite unexpected. You can really sense the flowers and wine. Albeit the wine is very mellow. Almost to the point of non-existstasnce. I really want to like this one but all I smell is wet dog, that makes it hard to appreciate.

drank Earl Grey by Bigelow

Eating breakfast at the restaurant in our hotel. They gave us a choice of tea bags and this one looked the best. I’ve had it before just never reviewed it. Bigelow has some good teas, not great mind you, just good. This tea is a good balance of flavors. Really doesn’t need anything added but a touch of honey or milk doesn’t hurt.

I agree! Good tea when you are away from your tea things. They had it at the cancer center and I got to try several different ones. Not bad.

Typical Rose tea. Little oolong flavor, lots of Rose flavor. Slight oolongs notes here and there but otherwise its just you and the rose garden.

Btw I didn’t see this on the website it was at a cafe called Gigi’s

drank Apple Pie Keemun by 52teas

Monthly TTB. I keep forgetting to add that. It gets hard to remember when I’m drinking a cuppa and feeding my daughter at the same time while trying to write a note. And she likes to try and grab my phone with her food covered fingers.

Anyway. The smell of the dry leaves reminds me of an apple pie you get in a grocery store and not a homemade pie. Or at least not the pies my mom or I make. Dark amber color. Not the best apple pie tea I’ve had (I think Indigo is better). It’s light but still has good flavor. Just not the pie flavor I think of when thinking of apple pie. I’m not a fan of store bought pies so that’s probably why I’m not a big fan of this tea.

drank Chai Love by Tiesta Tea

I need a lil something to put a lil bounce back into my step before going to work. This is a good one to do it with. I probably should have let it steep longer then 3 minutes but it still came out nicely. Just a little light on flavor. If steeped for around 4 – 5 minutes, probably 5, I could see this chair being really nice. There is a nice spiciness to it that I find a good chai should have.

Creamy, with a splash of peppermint. Light on the lavender. In fact I can’t really taste that much lavender at all. Which is surprising because it can be a very over powering flavor. I’ve put a few lavender buds by themselves into the pot to see if that does anything.

A song later…

It added a bit of lavender flavor. But not quite as much as I was hoping. The creaminess probably comes from the vanilla which accents this tea very nicely. I’m trying to tell what the base is for this tea but I’m really bad at guessing black bases.

Flavors: Cream, Peppermint, Vanilla

Preparation
3 min, 15 sec 1 tsp

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.
