I couldn't believe it but turns out I react to very concentrated green tea with nausea. I think it's cos it was up to 6x more concentrated than it should be as it was my first time making matcha from powder so I thought, gee, one teapson should do it and I did a heaped teaspoonful. Then I found out from my friend it's more like 1/4 of a teaspoon. So I guess that's the end of my green tea matcha experiment for now until I regain my taste for green tea! I really did love the japanese tea ceremony green tea though. That was like drinking the cappucino version of green tea. Next time I'm going to ask someone who's experienced at mixing green tea to tell me how first. Nothing to do with aikido other than the fact I usually drink cold sweet green tea in between sessions of aikido to quench thirst. Today I think I might stick to plain water.

Monday's aikido: I'm practising when really tired mentally which means I can sometimes not get simple moves. We did a kind of kaiten nage which involved sliding alongside uke's punch with my back to uke then turning around in a kokyu like throw. But I kept getting confused and turning the wrong way. There are just some moves I never get for a long time and this is one of them. I was also getting confused between the ai hanmi and gyko hanmi versions.
