I’m not having much luck on the matcha front today. I was still craving an iced matcha, even after the lemongrass fiasco. I should have grabbed one of the flavors I know I like (grapefruit or english toffee), but instead grabbed this one. I made it hot a few days ago and it was ok. Not good or bad, just ok. Today I made it iced. It’s definitely better hot. I don’t really taste the butter cookie. Just a sweet vanilla flavor with a really strange aftertaste. Like its been sweetened by something artificial. I’ve almost got it covered up by a combo of almond, coconut, and regular milk, but it sneaks through. I don’t know if I just don’t like the black flavor or the butter cookie flavor. Either way, I think I’m sticking with green matchas from here on out.

Okay, I need to go find to a reliable tea from my favorites cupboard to help me recover from the disappointing start to my afternoon tea.


I’ve had days like that. Hope your next cup is better!!

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
