Make that an unapologetic tea aficionado. There are no apologies for liking ice cream, especially if one has no lactose-intolerance.
Make that matcha green tea.
Match-what? Matcha. M-a-t-c-h-a. Matcha.
Matcha is whole leaf green tea ground to a fine powder. It is this form of green tea commonly used during Japanese tea ceremony.

Chocolate, of course, is optional.
Stay cool and keep those tea cups up.
