I thought I should also give a little bit of background on what matcha is so you know what you’re drinking. Matcha is a Japanese preparation of the carnellia sisensis plant by grinding the whole leaf, which is different from other types; this gives it the most caffeine out of all the teas. The tea is ground and the more finally it is ground the higher the grade is Tencha grade is the only grade that can be considered matcha all others are just considered pulverized. It can take up to an hour to grind 30 grams of the leaves so matcha is usually more expensive then other teas. It is produced in Japan in the Uji region of Kyoto, the Nishio region of Aichi along with Shizuoka and Kyushu. The plants used are shade grown and are covered with blankets two weeks before picking to protect them from any direct light. Matcha also has some of the highest antioxidant count out there with 70 times that of orange juice (fresh I assume) and many times that of green tea. Hoped you learned something about matcha and go out and try some of those domo blends there just great and one glass and your fine for the whole day it doesn’t make you all jittery like coffee.

a new take on the tea bag

Fuze is now offering a green tea flavored with honey, it also comes with natural antioxidants and ginseng. Along with the usual vitamins in all health drinks (C, E, B3, B5, B6,B12). It has the usual green tea taste to it and the honey isn’t really a flavour so much as just some sweetness, it comes in a plastic 547ml bottle and runs for about 2.50.

This is a nice black tea not to strong but with a good flavour, you can add to it and there wont be any clash with the taste, on the second brewing it gives off a beautiful fruity taste, i would say its apricot and its great. Its got a strong citrus taste to it sweet orange comes through, which must be the two flavors coming together, but the lemon grass has a separate taste which is more zesty.

Sprinkle about one third of the cilantro in the bottom of a deep glass or other nonreactive dish large enough to hold the salmon flat. Asian infused baking wuth green tea.I got a pai ma tan which was a nice white tea and was very good iced. The Canister is a nice little tea and coffee store that i have recently discovered in my neighborhood. Drizzle with the mirin and place the remaining salmon, skin side up, over the first fillet.

Well i made the ginger tea in my zarafina, and its turned out pretty good, though the first try was pretty weak because i used the herbal setting but i used the black tea setting gave much more flavour. Bundle up the first seven ingredients in a length of cheese cloth and tie it together with a string. So heres how it went the ingredients were: cinnamon, cardamon, cloves, and black tea. It’s called Tea Story… and i dont know anything about it.
