Still tired; decided to try one of my other matchas without milk to test and see if it was indeed the milk. This is one I never make as a latte because I feel like the bright flavor doesn’t really work with milk.

I am actually still getting some of the almost metallic, almost salty tastes from this one too, but I’m not so sure it’s the matcha getting old, it might just be that I haven’t drank any matcha in months and forgot what it tastes like. The matcha has been sealed in a freezer so it shouldn’t have degraded too much. It’s still tasty, and I still am enjoying the bright berry flavor of this tea, so I think I just need to pick my habit back up.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
