This may be horrific but I wanted a matcha latte so badly today and asked Ashman if he would like one, too. He rarely says “no” when I offer food and drink. This is the only matcha I have right now so even though it is the extra thick grade when culinary grade will do, I used it.

Good golly, it was refreshing. I have some stainless steel cups. Made a paste of matcha and cold water in a matcha bowl. Put that in a cup with sugar and milk and used an Aerolatte to froth it. So dang delicious. Now I am out of matcha oh no I hope there is some in my stocking. (There will be. I ordered it myself. I mean, I was buying some for Superanna so how could I not? Heehee.)

Smooth, sweet, green, fresh, frothy. I think this is my favorite matcha, although D25 from Matcha Outlet is very good, too. The Harney grade just below this one is also great, and a good price for the quality.

Lol extra thick grade, what a weird way to say that it’s matcha for koicha. Doesn’t sound very appetizing does it? Lol.

Tea gifts to yourself are the best gifts. :P

I have also been craving a matcha latte. I have the matcha and even something special for it. Now I just need to have the milk and the craving at the same time.

Nothing like satisfying a craving. Especially a relatively harmless one.

Cameron B. – I guess they call it that because they have two koicha grades and the other is just called Thick Grade. It is very good also and I used to keep both on hand and use thick for lattes and this one for whisking in a bowl.

Ah yes, it was soooo good it was hard nit to gulp it all down!

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
