Good quality looking matcha. I’m always a little weary when they are that nasty green instead of being closer to the bright lovely green. I have no idea as to what spurred me into buying this one other then the fact that I like honey. It’s quite sweet. Leaves a pleasant after taste.

So smooth. Much better than expected. I got the basic grade which was a not as nice of green color like usual for the basic grade. Anyway, great taste. Mixed it with almond milk. Nom

Lovely. Earthy and grassy. Both in scent and flavor. Good hot or iced. Darker amber color. Steep about 2 mins. Maybe 3. It becomes bitter quickly after that.

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
443 tasting notes

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.

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.
