Aside from spilling over a quarter of my container of this very expensive matcha and making a huge mess, thereby turning my desk a faint shade of green, this cup is a great success. I mixed 1/2 a cup of water, 1/2 a cup of full-fat coconut milk, and a tablespoon of maple syrup in a mason jar and heated in the microwave until boiling. I then used a couple of teaspoons to make a paste with 1 teaspoon of matcha powder. After mixing, I added the remaining liquid which frothed up beautifully. This was perfectly sweet and the flavor is wonderful – spot-on toasted marshmallow in both the taste and smell. My only complaint would be that even after making a paste with the matcha, it didn’t blend well with the liquid and I still have chunks of it settled in the bottom of my mug.

Lifetime student. Lover of books and paper and ink. Kitchen dweller. Aspiring herbalist, excessively proud cat lady, and tea fanatic. Thirty-something elder millennial. She/her.

I love flavored black teas most of all, always with cream and honey. I enjoy floral and fruity teas, as well as flavored or scented ones. I’m not overly fond of green or white teas, but I’ve found a few that I enjoy.

I’m open to tea swaps and/or just sharing what’s in my tea cabinet! Please reach out if you see something I have that you’d like to try. I do my best to update my cupboard regularly.

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband, James, who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-49: This tea is not good, but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

50-69: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

70-79: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

80-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
