New Detolf & New Matcha & New Anime

April 13, 2016

So last week I got to go to Ikea, and finally get a second Detolf 😀 (amongst other things, like shelves and cutlery).

I also caved and got some more matcha, which was in the last post. But today I caved and opened it. Which I’m glad I did.

And the past couple of weeks all the new anime has started, and I’ve tried almost everything new out, even the shorts. Haven’t decided to pick many up though… so far anyway.

Matcha the right way ~ Matcha Factory & other things

This is the Grape Tree’s Matcha, it’s been sifted so it’ll mix better :3

So thanks to my favourite sushi restaurant’s particular choice of green tea, I’ve been on a green tea bender. I asked them where they got their kind from and they told me, Costco. So of course I went on a googling spree. I found out that it was a green tea-matcha blend. Which is probably why it was the greenest green tea I’ve had in a while. It’s the Kirkland brand, which I couldn’t order direct from Costco, so I ordered from Amazon. The day it arrived I decided to wander round town to see if there was any pure matcha on it’s own. Found 2 places near where I worked, one was a weird blend, and one was pure matcha. £6.99 for 30g from Grape Tree in Sutton Coldfield, probably some of the cheapest I’ve seen online or offline. I can  only think of one website that has it cheaper. And of course, I’ve done my research now.

Day Off = TV, Anime, Games and SNACKS!! (Dagashi Kashi sample set 1 tasting)

March 2, 2016

My days off are used to catch up on TV, play games and control the TV completely. But today was special, as I got to try out some of my Dagashi Kashi loot from JList. It arrived last week but I’d only been able to try two things since then; an Umaibo which turned out to be Natto flavour, which I enjoyed 😄 (Now I want to try real Natto, dangerous right?) and the Cherry Kozakura Mochi, which I had Thursday while watching Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi. It was very cute.
