Ok, can I just say YUM!

I was wondering how I would write 200 words, unless it’s allowed that all my words were the phrase “BOY THIS IS GOOD” repeated over and over again. Probably not though.

I FINALLY received this in the mail yesterday, I was so excited. Last night I had some matchacchino sampling to do so I didn’t bother making this, 24 oz of iced matcha latte in one sitting was more than enough! I was looking forward to trying this one based on the awesome reviews. I had previously only tried Red Leaf’s Bavarian Cream, Maple and Cheesecake matchas, so that’s the only comparison I have.

I brought all my tools to work this morning, milk, frother, matcha, ready to make this as my morning tea.

Unfortunately for me, after I made it I went back to the kitchen with my cup to add a bit more hot water (to stretch this out, gotta make it last!!) and somehow managed to knock my cup over and spill the entire thing all over the counter. So much for making it last. I was so sad. And I cursed and then apologized for the curse to my co-worker who happened to be in the kitchen with me. I barely had one mouthful of it before spilling it ALL.

So anyway, I was going to say that nothing makes a morning easier than a good cuppa tea, but that’s assuming you don’t screw up an easy task!

I did obviously make another one, hot frothy milk and all, and dare I say this was even better than a regular cuppa tea as a great way to RE-start my day! I was so impressed with the flavoring here. I ordered the Classic Grade with Delicate Flavour and I was very happy with that. I don’t mind tasting the matcha, the way I see it is if I had a problem with the taste of matcha I shouldn’t really be drinking matcha! (Trying to see how many times I can say “matcha” in one sentence… I win!)

I would absolutely order this one again, I’m glad I got the large size of it! I am looking forward to trying as many more flavours in the future as I can afford!

I was kind of expecting to not notice the taste of the delicate based on comments about robust or distinctive being recommended, but I found this very flavourful!!

Hello!

So here’s where I am now. I had jumped head first into the world of teas after Davidstea opened in my city a number of years ago. I gave up coffee and became a huge tea freak. From there I joined Steepster and started ordering teas online like a madwoman (not that anyone here would know what that’s like…)

I was swappin’ up a storm and drinking like 6-7 cups a day and I had this tremendous stash to get through…..then. I got pregnant in Spring 2013 and my baby played a funny little joke on me by turning me into someone who had zero interest in drinking or even smelling most teas. I wanted only coffee all the time which was hilarious because of course you can’t really do more than a cup a day when you’re pregnant.

Anyway. In December 2013 I had my baby girl, and now I’m on maternity leave and though I still LIVE (I cannot emphasize that enough) for my morning cup of coffee (or two…), I am trying to get myself excited about tea again, because I have TONS.

So my mission, which I choose to accept, is to first sip down all the samples I have, sent to me last year by lovely Steepsterites, pre-baby.

Here’s what I love (or I did before, and am trying to again):

Butiki teas in general because the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base

Harney and Sons Paris is my all time favorite tea.

Mariage Freres and Kusmi are also on my awesome list.

I love creamy earl greys.

Also have an appreciation of oolong.

I have a mega stash of super flavored teas to work through, or I may try to sell them if I decide they are no longer for me. The sip downs will determine!

I love swapping!
Please note my Cupboard contains everything I have including minuscule samples of teas so it is not intended to be reflective of what I have available for swap…

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.
