My friend at work discovered this tea at her local grocery store. It’s actually a matcha latte mix. The cost was extremely reasonable, and it turns out her local store was selling a 100g tin of this mix for a few bucks less than what they are selling it for on the company’s website. It smelled so amazing, and she offered to pick some up for me. The other day, while I was working from home, she told me she put a little present on my desk, and it turned out to be a tin of this! Awesome timing, too, because I still can’t drink hot liquids, so all my black teas are off-limits right now. It’s been really hard! Aaaaahhh! Thank goodness for friends who bring you iced tea!

So, this mix is really delicious! There are even tiny bits of coconut! It tastes like a macaroon! Yum! I made it as an iced latte with unsweetened almond milk. Creamy deliciousness! Having this almost makes me forget about my beloved black teas….well, it really doesn’t, but it does make me feel better!

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
