Matcha Source popped up at The Daily Dose, the passion project of LA local rabble rowzer, tech-entrepreneur, music lover, and sometimes chef, Sarkis Vartanian. We served tea in a bowl and matcha green tea lattes to the brunch crowd who dined on a menu of farmer’s market fresh oyster mushrooms. Here’s Sarkis’ post from the Sunday Farmer’s Market:
when i went to the Atwater farmers market this morning, for a minute i thought i walked into Alice’s wonderland. At Kane’s Family Farm table i was able to pick my own yellow oyster mushrooms so todays special is called the wonderland: 3 egg omelet, sautéed shallots/welsh and red onions and yellow oyster and shitaki mushrooms in beurre blanc sauce topped with scallions made to order
This from Denise in Rhode Island:
Here in RI we had a blizzard and lost power last night. I had an empty Morning Matcha tin that came in very handy. By taking off the bottom with a can opener and punching holes around the side, it fit perfectly on top of the can of sterno (canned heat) and made a neat little sterno stove!
Morning Matcha saves the day!
This week Nicolas Varney stopped in with a gal pal and pooch. Mr. Varney, visiting from New York, could work behind the counter here. A major matcha fan, he sniffed, sampled, handled and bought just about one of everything. He swore to me, “I’ve never had a single cup of coffee in my whole life. And I’m very OCD and drink A LOT of green tea.”
Nicola Varney Jewels can be found at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
Andrew came in after hours to pick up a FOCUS TEA SET before catching a return flight to Far Rockaway, NY* where he lives and works. Andrew Lock makes custom suits for men and has a line of men’s shoes, ties and watches. He found his passion in color, pattern making and fabrics. All the shoes are from London and Italy. We had such a good time gabbing and examining all of the fine details of his suit, including the fleur de lis pattern of the stitching on the buttons, “Machines can’t do that,” he told me.
A custom suit is an excellent gift for college graduates, weddings and significant others. Wearing well made clothes changes the way you are perceived in the world. It’s just so.
Andrew also appreciated our 100 prong whisks and fine smooth taste of Kama Ceremony Grade Matcha. If you do look him up, please tell him The Matcha Lady sent you.
