drank Red Matcha by Pure Matcha
105 tasting notes

I really like matcha and I really like rooibos. Plus, I’m tickled pink to receive a tin of this from an angel named Charlotte I would never have been able to try this otherwise. Come to think of it, there are a ton of teas I would never have been able to try if not for my dear Steepster family! So thank you to Charlotte and everyone in Steepster. You make the tea experience so much more than I thought it could be :)

Now, on to the Red Matcha! Being a newbie, I clumsily opened the tin and dropped a bit more powder than I had planned into my (brother’s) shake bottle. Made a mental note of the need for a spoon. Next, I put it under the water dispenser and tiny clouds of powder flew. This helped me inhale the aroma, lol. Upon hindsight, I note: it is better to put in water first..or pour water oh so gently. Ah, matcha truly is an art requiring much grace!

So I shake it, and sip it, and oh, the water’s gone down…add some more water to make up for too much powder from earlier…and sip down some more, imagining the possibilities of mixing this with other things. I did like the teabag rooibos w/cinnamon and vanilla so I think I will try that for a start :)

rooibos w cinnamon & vanilla? the wissotzky teabag was good. Lariel liked it too.

i didnt get to try it yet..was too immersed getting the feel of it plain? haha. i think the powder tastes better with less water (i put a lot of water in).

Chai was my first love, and later fell hard for Earl Grey. Will always have a soft spot in my heart for tisanes. It has been a while since I last joined and now I am more into matcha but still into other teas most definitely.

Swapped some teas here before with the LIT brand and had to change name to be registered and now selling loose leaf tea in the Philippines as Khesed :)
