Sipdown and thank you dreamloomer!

After 6 hours of lectures sitting in front of screen, with 30 minutes lunch break, indeed Hello, Sofa!

I decided to steep longer than previous time; though last time it was very hot and spicy and I wasn’t that impressed. Though it says it contains matcha, I again went for boiling water.

Quite paradoxically, it was mellower than last time and now I can agree with “An easy going all-organic Spicy Chai with Matcha” on their bag. I am not really able to distinguish spices, but I think I noticed pepper and cinnamon, unfortunately much less orange zest than last time.

I find this tea interesting, but not looking trying again. Maybe less ginger/pepper notes and it would be more interesting… is base bit missing? I keep 70/100, as I am not that much impressed of this tea. But I am glad I could try it.

Very curious person over!

Flavors: Black Pepper, Cinnamon, Ginger, Orange Zest

205 °F / 96 °C 6 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

Wow, what an interesting idea for a tea. Also, it’s funny they call it “herbal tea” when it has matcha, ha ha! That could be a fun surprise for someone expecting no caffeine. :P

Agreed. Calling it an herbal is a bit misleading. I wonder how many people decided to drink this as a relaxing cup before bed. :D

It contains only 2 per cent of Matcha. So it is 0,036g of Matcha in each tea bag. How much caffeine can it contain? Almost nothing in my opinion.

Leafhopper

Okay, that makes a bit more sense and probably wouldn’t keep anyone up. Still, saying it’s an herbal is strange.
