Lovely Matcha. The color is beautiful vibrant emerald green. It has a fine and smooth feel to it and its consistency is one of a very fine powder. It has the qualities of a high standard matcha and has no bitterness nor astringency… And thank goodness, no paint-smell, some actually smell like turpentine. Ew. Sweet, full-bodied, rich taste and aroma. It’s energizing and vitalizing, but calming. I prepared it with 1 tsp in ~2 oz boiling water, frothed it, then added another 6 ounces boiling water. It has a very creamy texture with a vegetal, earthy flavor with a ever so slight hint of sweetness that lingers on the palate. The aroma is calming, sweet, and vegetal. Highly recommended.

In other news, my nephew went back home with his father and my mother who is taking care of him. My brother is doing better, but like all those that suffer from PTSD and other disorders, it is always a sad and difficult road. All we could do is love them, and support them in their recovery. Thank you all for your support. It’s appreciated <3.

Not having PTSD but panic attacks, and I know it is hard. Wishing your brother fast recovering. Support is very important! Keep it up.
And tea? Well, I should try matcha prepared somewhere.

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Sencha, Matcha. I’m currently into Oolong, Black & Pu’erh.

Gongfu cha is the main way I prepare my tea (gaiwan or Yixing teapot). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. I do try some flavored now. I don’t like artificial sweeteners.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia. (Note: I love the teaware from TeaVivre and Yunnan sourcing.) Good experiences with 52Teas, Harney & Sons, Whispering Pines

Flavors I dislike are artificial flavors, especially artificial sweeteners. Strong lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, ripe papaya, sweet honeydew.

Can handle a little of the following: Rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, mint, spearmint, peppermint, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, all fruits except cantaloupe, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
