Smoothie Sipdown (249)

I store my matchas in the freezer except the last time I made a smoothie with this (Wednesday, I think) I forgot it on the counter. When I got home from class I was craving a smoothie and with this just sitting there staring at me, it got tossed in.

I didn’t actually measure anything so I don’t know how much of this I used other than I know I finished the package. I also didn’t measure the honey I added and so today this is less berry and more honey. Still good. Sweet. Creamy. Soft berry notes. Honey. Yum!

In other news, I have been craving KFC for like 4 days. I don’t even like KFC! But I have been thinking about it forever it feels like and I am debating if I should order it but I have food here and should probably eat that.

I found it super weird that KFC, in Montreal, is PFK. It’s such a small, arbitrary thing but that and a few of the other businesses with names that are different from the rest of Canada (like Shoppers/Pharmaprix) really tripped me out when I moved. It was just something I had never even considered might be different.

Loblaws and Provigo was a hard one for me. Also I forgot about PFK. That is how the French sneaks up on you.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
