Decided to immerse myself in all things Eire today: shamrock green sweater, Irish Whiskey Tea (Teamaze) for breakfast, rereading an installment from “An Irish Country Doctor” series, listening to The Irish Rovers, and this for my work break because, well, green.

I don’t have a lot of matcha experience so this may just be ignorance talking, but it was a little too high on the bitter and vegetal scale for my preferences. I’m lily-livered and want my green teas gentle, sweet-ish, or flavored. No harm done, horizons expanded, and with that, I’ll leave you with this little Irish blessing I found: If God sends you down a stony path, may He give you strong shoes.

Steepster “geezer” (been reviewing here for more than a decade); tea barbarian who has no systematic method for storage, preparation, classification, or rating; lover of strong unleaded builders’ tea. Never quite grew up—I cut and glue, play with Legos, design kids’ curriculum, and play with fifth graders every Sunday.
