I have a 2g sample of this Matcha, it’s in a small, thin envelope which fell to the bottom of one of my tea drawers which is why I have been so late in trying it. I’ve just lost my train of thought, my parents dog Jasper (old gal) is going into the hallway for some biscuits but instead of eating them out there she is bring them into the living room and eating them here, she has been back and forth several times doing this! That makes no sense, yet she seems happy doing it that way.

Once the Matcha has been made it’s a beautiful green colour, not super dark and not light. I checked a colour chart and the name for it is ‘yellow green’. I was hoping for a fancy name. Ok colour aside it blended very well and has a beautiful light, sweet and creamy flavour with only a little astringency. Very delicious…I’m taking large gulps…can’t stop myself. I’m loving Matcha at the moment, got 200g of basic kitchen grade on it’s way from Yunomi.us. Part of my new diet (that I keep trying to get on), instead of taking vitamin pills I’m going to have a cup of Matcha a day and my husband is going to join me. Such a shame I can’t buy more of this one, I would have stock piled like crazy. After the Matcha I already have I’m thinking of trying the starter Matcha from Red Leaf Tea, it’s only $20.99 at the moment and $9.99 for international shipping for 1lb of the stuff (to any Brits that is 453g ish and a total of £18.50 delivered). An unbelievable price, has anyone tried it? Not drinking as much for the flavour as the benefits :)

Bio

I’m 30 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have six of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory Ruby, Lady, Misty and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
