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
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.
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.
