After a few months of gazing longingly at 3 Leaf Tea’s website, I finally decided to place my first order. I ordered butterscotch matcha (60g package) and this raspberry hot chocolate (1/2 Ib package with sugar, not raw cacao). The weather here was pretty bleak, so I decided to try the hot chocolate first…..and now I’m in love.
My first impression of powder was that it smelled divine. The biggest fear I had was that I wouldn’t be able to taste the raspberry, but I was pleasantly surprised. The raspberry was definitely there, but it didn’t over power the taste of the cacao itself. I also think the amount of sugar in the hot chocolate is just the right amount, it takes the bitter edge off the cacao, but not so much that it tastes like your eating a chocolate bar. I definitely look forward to trying 3 Leaf’s other flavors!!

I’m rather new to the tea scene, and I don’t have nearly as much time to dedicate to my new-found love of tea as I would like. I’m currently in my second year of college studying microbiology. I’ve been a tea drinker for about three years now; however, only in recent months have I been experimenting with loose-leaf teas.

My favorites are Earl Greys and Matcha.

Any kind of green tea will always hold a special place in my heart, particularly Matcha. I don’t normally add any milk, honey, sugar, etc. I prefer to appreciate the flavor of the tea on its own. I do like oolong, white, and black teas as well. Although, I usually avoid most herbal teas, I don’t dislike them (I’m especially fond of Chamomile or Mint herbals). I generally dislike teas with any overpowering flavors- especially cinnamon or most “spiced” blends, but I try to keep an open mind.

My other interests include reading, video games, anime, and hiking…in no particular order. I also follow The Walking Dead and I’m always open to new ways to procrastinate my coursework.
