Kappa Matcha from Wendigo Tea Co. . .Heaven in a Cup!

It is no secret.  I adore, love, and admire all things Wendigo Tea Co.  From the moment I first saw their website, I was hooked.  After trying their tea, I was in love.   From the high quality teas to the crazy adorable tea names to the amazingly created art work for each of the teas, this company has always been one of my favorites from the start. Recently, Wendigo Tea announced they would start selling a high grade ceremonial matcha.  Once I saw the adorable artwork for Kappa Matcha, I was smitten.  But I will be the first to Read More

Today was one of those days that screamed- You need to drink Matcha.

Matcha from ZenTei . . . . .

In the last wave of summer weather, I brewed up a cup of matcha from ZenTei.  It was an easy choice, after my eye caught a glimpse of its beautiful packaging on my tea shelf. This matcha is a hand-ground, organic green tea. The powdered tea is smooth and green, though a bit muted in color.  Matcha is best at its freshest and greenest, and I should note that I’m tasting this sample after a friend, so it’s possible my sample was just a little past its prime. In the warm weather, I tried this iced, unsweetened and without milk. Read More

Matcha really is my best friend. I stick to one company and drink their Ceremonial Matcha every morning, via a milk latte with agave syrup. When I saw Pinky Out’s matcha in my sample box I was hesitant .

It was definitely different than traditional Ceremonial Matcha. Ceremonial grade is more vegetal and perhaps even a little less sweet than this stuff, Read More

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
