I bought some of this during the Black Friday sale. At first I was gonna pass over it, but I think it was 30% off and I said “eh, why not”. I’m a big fan of matcha powder, as long as it’s not too overpowering. I especially love matcha iced. Great way to get that green tea flavor without having to wait for steeping, especially if you’re in the mood for something cold. You’ll see a fair amount of my reviews were from matchas prepared cold.

You’re supposed to use 1 tsp of powder for a 20 oz. cup but that is really too strong for me. So I used a 1/2 tsp, poured in some water, ice, and gave it a good shake. The result is a really good grassy green tea beverage. It’s definitely no matcha, but it’s honestly not bad. I could drink this on a regular basis as it’s quite affordable.

Iced 8 min or more 20 OZ / 591 ML

So the short story is, a few years ago I was VERY MUCH into tea. And then a lot of things happened, and I got out of tea for a while. And now, I’m back.ⁿ

To me, tea is the missing puzzle piece for my healthy lifestyle. When I drink tea I am encouraged to eat healthy and be active. I drink tea because I simply enjoy the taste, but the health aspects are just an added bonus.

I love all types of teas, although greens and oolongs tend to be my favorite. I’ll drink herbals if I’m feeling a little under the weather. And recently I’ve been getting more into young shengs (also chasing that elusive “cha qi”).

Unless otherwise stated, I drink my teas straight. I’ve been doing gongfu mostly these days, so I use a ceramic gaiwan with an electric kettle. For greens and some oolongs, I’ll do a western style with a glass mug or regular infuser. I try to specify if my brewing parameters are outside the norm.

I’m kinda strict when rating my teas. I rarely give a tea above a 95. Teas that I really like I keep in the 95-85 category. I’ve yet to give a tea 100 yet. So, if you see a tea about 95, that means I thought it was an amazing tea!

ⁿ – Note: I did step away from tea for a while.. again. But now I’m back for REALZ. Usually I have to put this interest on hold when real life takes over, so I’m hoping for no major life events these days.
