Amazing, even though I brewed it incorrectly! It was a gift from a friend and is very fresh. The leaves are a deep emerald colour, and the tea tastes like very good quality matcha. I’ll brew it properly next time, which means I’ll have to bring my thermometer to work to get the water temperature right. Lovely.

I’m at the point where my family, friends and coworkers ask me for tea advice. It’s awesome, but I still feel as though I’m just getting started.

I love tea, have a small ball-joint doll collection, am fascinated by Japanese culture and faerie folklore, and wish I could travel much more often. I have two daughters, a husband, and three cats. I wish I had more time for all the things I want to learn and do.

I use Steepster to log each tea I try only once, so I may not update that often, but I drink several kinds of tea several times daily!
