Oh good lord. I’m glad I still had a bit of tea in another cup to wash the flavor out of my mouth. This matcha is apparently soluble in hot or cold liquids, so I went with a small cup of cool water. It dissolved fine, though it did leave some dark dregs in the bottom. The flavor is like oversteeped green tea leaves that sat out for a few days and started to rot. Plus lawn clippings. I basically chugged it just so the herbal content wouldn’t be wasted.
I am buzzing pretty hard by now (not like Red Bull hard, but it’s more than tea usually gives me). But I can get a buzz somewhere else without having to suffer through the taste of this stuff!
ETA 15 minutes later — MY EVERY THOUGHT IS IN ALL CAPS!! Time to clean ALL THE THINGS! OUT OF MY WAY!!
