Where have I been? You noticed I wasn't here, right? I'm going pretend like you did. Nothing is wrong, the truth is that work has been kicking my tea leaves and then I was attacked by turkeys. Or, I had Thanksgiving. Same thing! I even had to pack up my photo set up in order to make room for guests, but now I'm back and just a little behind on reviews.
Today's post is a Twofer. I had some matcha to review, and I had a battery operated frother to review, and it occurred to me that those two go well together! I have posted before about how I think people are intimidated by matcha, so every time I review one I try to prepare it in a different way. If you leave with nothing else after this post, please leave with the idea that you don't have to have a bamboo whisk and chawan to make matcha. it's fun if you do, but you can still have some great matcha with what you have at home. Today I am making my matcha in a rice bowl that I picked up at a thrift store for a dime.

It's funny, I have quite a few teapots. At one point I even considered myself a teapot collector. But, I never used any of them. Oh sure - I have an Ingenuitea that I use and that is sort of a teapot. It functions essentially the same as one. But when it comes to a traditional teapot, I don't know that I had ever used one until yesterday.
