Davids Tea -- Matcha "Matsu"

Matcha 'Matsu'

DD#1 - 2/5
DD#2 - 5/5
Bruce - 2/5
Me -  2/5
(family average - 2.75/5)

Green Tea
In Japanese "matsu' literally means "pine tree".  But it's also a term that indicates excellence.  This powdered green tea lives up to its name.

Well you can see who likes green tea in this house.  DD#2 gave it a 5/5 but the rest of us did not like it, giving it a 2/5.  Have been told it can be put into smoothies & you would never taste it, now that's a good thing! 

Sweetener of choice, none

Davids Tea -- Eggnog

Holiday Collection

DD#1 - 5/5
DD#2 - 1/5
Bruce - 5/5
Me -  5/5
(family average - 4/5)

With white chocolate, meringue and the aroma of warm winter spices, this is a healthy twist on our favourite winter indulgence.  The only thing missing is a splash of brandy.

We made an Eggnog Latte with this tea, making it with 1/2 milk and 1/2 eggnog
Bruce, DD#1 & myself all gave this a 5 star rating.  DD#2 gave it a 1 as she does not like eggnog.

Sweetener of choice:  None

Tis that time of Year!

DIY Tea Advent Calendar

There is a new DavidsTea in the Niagara Outlet Mall in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  That store as you can tell is very dangerous for us.  Went there the other day to purchase the 24 - 10g packs of tea for our advent calendar.  It is getting harder to try 24 different teas that we have not all ready tried but we did manage it.  Really looking forward to trying all these new teas.  Review of the teas start on December 1st but there is a teaser trailer, tomorrow & the next day.

24 - 10g packages of tea
