Hug thanks to Shakirah1984 for the chance to try this (and a couple others).

I’m aware of my typo above but decided to leave it because these samples are totally worthy of a hug.

I got these in the mail today and I happen to be home, so of course I made it immediately, awesome! I followed Red Leaf’s directions for a matcha latte, and I should note this is the first homemade matcha I’ve ever had, let alone the first flavored one.

It. Is. So. Good.

I can taste the maple, but it’s not overwhelming. I don’t really know what else to tell you because I have no basis for comparison, it’s tasty, you guys. That is all.

I’m really sad because now I have to buy some at some point and that means I will have a long wait because this stuff isn’t cheap.

I’m even more excited to try my other two samples, Bavarian Cream and the illustrious Cheesecake.

Thanks again Shakirah1984 (rather, curse you!) :)

I just ordered basically this same set of flavors haha, plus fig. I can’t wait to try them! For first time buying I suggest trying one that’s on sale and then write the review on it and get a discount on your next order…then you can try like buy 3 get 1 and try new flavors while paying less.That’s what I did and it’s lasted me a while and been totally worth it.

I will have to try that! It’s just pretty darn expensive. Too bad there aren’t samplers available! I’m wondering how many cups of matcha are per bag (the smallest size)

I use half to 1 tsp of matcha per serving and I can get probably 20 servings, it’s like a 50 gram bag of loose tea I feel. I personally was not fond of the Green Apple Matcha but everyone else seems to love it, I’m glad to send you the bag if you want to do a small swap, only about 1-2 tsp missing from it.

Thanks so much for the offer :) I tend to hate anything apple flavoured though so I’m sure there’s someone out there who would enjoy it more than me, haha :)

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
