Raspberry Matcha from Tea’s Me. . . . . .

I love Matcha tea. I love the vibrant green color, I love the grassy green flavor and I especially love the health benefits. I also love raspberries. They are in my top three favorite fruits. So I was very excited to try raspberry matcha tea. I made a pitcher of this over ice because the weather is warm and I like my fruit teas served cold. First of all, as soon as I opened the package I smelled a strong raspberry smell which made me very happy. And mixing this was a breeze, no clumping issues at all. Now on Read More

It’s that time of year, when you long for tea but the thought of a hot cuppa after being out in the heat and humidity makes you cringe. Republic of Tea to the rescue!

I followed the instructions on the company website. Personally – I could taste a Read More

Caramel Popcorn Matcha from Matcha Outlet (formerly Red Leaf Tea). . . .

Matcha is supposed to be the epitome of healthy teas. People see the green hue of a matcha latte and assume it is good for you. There are claims that the finely ground green tea can boost metabolism, burn calories, calm the mind, relax the body, enhance the mood, prevent diseases and so on and so forth. Unfortunately, matcha can also taste a touch like grass at times and as someone who discovered matcha when I was just discovering tea, I was not quite ready to willingly drink something that seemed like it was produced by my lawn mower.
