Thanx Scruff!!!

3rd Japanese tea of the day...MATCHA. Matcha truly is amazing, mesmerizing even. I can truly see how Space had 5? cups of this yesterday.

This one is just an everyday offering that is a bit lighter than I am used to. I usually use this for mixing with other Japanese greens like kukicha, lower grade sencha, but I also use it for cooking which is a lot of fun. Turns food like rice really green and tastes great. Everything I try matcha in I like.

Anyway...a little mellower than most matcha I have had, but great to have around.

Many happy returns to the birthday people! :D I am also happy tonight. My oldest kid just won a $400 music camp scholarship in a band solo competition. I shouldn't get too excited until I see how far $400 goes.

Drank some good Adagio snowbud tonight. The caffeine powered me through the rest of my math. Ordered some silver needle and am really looking forward to it.

Finished the day with my 4th Japanese tea of the day, my special blend of Karigane gyokuro, Sencha, and Matcha.

This is such a nice blend ans so approachable...yet I love how different each component is, but harmonizes so nicely. It is like Crosby, Stills, and Nash, you can hear and appreciate each voice, but they come together incredibly well.

This is post number 50 for this TeaDay thread, and I enjoyed reading each and every one of everybody's post. This has to be a first in TeaChat history.

I thought the poll was also fun today.
