4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely 'Gold Class', 1 Aug. 2015
I really enjoy green tea being a Twinings fan, especially their indulgence flavours. However, this is my first experience of real matcha green tea beyond Starbucks (as embarrassed as I am to admit it) and a traditional 'bubble tea' which I didn't enjoy as much as I had hoped.
I read some of the other reviews of this product and expected a 'not quite pleasant' taste but I actually really enjoyed it. Kept adding water until a taste I liked and although it's not the traditional brew, I added a bit of cinnamon to sweeten. It is very smooth and satisfying - a completely different experience to tea bags and coffee franchises.

The presentation of the tin itself is excellent and exciting - especially opening to reveal a fragrant, bright green powder. I can't wait to make this for my friends - may have to invest in a proper tea making set with a bamboo whisk in order to have a real tea ceremony.

I received this product for review purposes. My opinions are 100% honest and my own

4.0 out of 5 stars A great start to the trilogy, 4 Jun. 2010
Xenitha is overall a pretty good story with a fairly strong plot and good description.

There are many lovable characters but personally, as a child, I think I would have preferred the book if the grandfather was not in the story so much. Maybe, he could have had the shop and while Ethan and Abigail are exploring they come across the writing on the table - because like Harry Potter, the main characters, if aimed at children, should pretty much be children/ teenagers, because more could have happened without him there. For example, Ethan could have expressed he liked Abbie as more than a friend (a good story has comedy + adventure + romance + tragedy).

Some of the characters are similar to some in Harry Potter. For example, kibblekytes remind me of hippogriffs and the gillyweasels are a bit like elves. However, pretty much all the characters have strong, unique personalities.
On the contrary, the characters are not memorable, even if they are enchanting, and I had, at parts, trouble remembering who was who.

In my opinion, you have named too many characters. For instance, Antwan did not need to be identified as Antwan: he could easily have just been known as a resident of Glaxton or such.

The plot is very strong and quite gripping however the writing style is slightly weak and jerky. Personally, I think there is too much dialogue in comparison to other books which have more description/ action rather than the action being conveyed through speech.
It is, however, very gracefully written as not to frighten the younger audience yet keep then enthralled all the way through.

Xenitha is a charming book, written by an aspiring author, whom one day, I am sure will be right up there amongst Rowling and Morpurgo, and I look forward to purchasing the second book of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I feel rich jus readin this book!, 8 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Millions (Paperback)
This book is fab. The book has been made into a movie (that is how good it is)! The book is about this boy called Damian who is obsessed with saints and has been since his mother died and the doctors and nurses were talking about lots of saints. He has a hermitage made of cardboard boxes which is near a railway track and near the railway track he finds a big bag of money with lots and lots of money. He thinks God has sent the money to them because he prayed but later finds out it might be stolen. How will the cash all be spent before Euro day on 17th of December. HOW will they do it????????????????????

3.0 out of 5 stars Run Run as fast as you can..., 6 July 2008
This book is magnificently illustrated and the font is the perfect size and style. The story line is great for 2 - 6 year olds and maybe 7 year olds. It is adventurous, funny, touching and overall mega brilliant!
My favourite part of the book is what the little biscuit person says ("Run! Run! As fast as you can, you can't catch me - I'm the Gingerbread Man!") through out the whole book."The Gingerbread Man" is a wonderfully enjoyable famous classic story to read over and over and over again with little ones. This is a Read It Yourself Level Two title for beginner readers who can read short simple sentences with a little bit of help. I really like the pictures in the book which add humour and pleasure into reading the story.


Two Village Dinosaurs
Two Village Dinosaurs
by Phyllis Arkle
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab, 6 July 2008
This review is from: Two Village Dinosaurs (Paperback)
Phyllis Arkle is a genius! He wrote this funny and charming story that continues the adventures begun so successfully in The Village Dinosaur. The author has also written other popular books like `Magic at Midnight' and `Magic in the Air'.

Surely one dinosaur is enough for any village! But when another is found in a chalk pit, the Parish Clerk's fears become reality. Even when young Jed Watkins was looking after the dinosaurs, they were causing trouble in different ways like messing up the town moments before the judges came from the Best Kept Village competition and crushing the village fête; not to mention eating the Clerk's prize winning roses. It is double trouble when Dino and Sauro trample their amiable way through the village, causing confusion and chaos on either side of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!, 6 July 2008
Ruskin Splinter is small and thin with knock knees, thick glasses and a squeaky voice and the idea of him taking a dragon makes the class laugh out loud. Big, strong Elvis may be stupid and keeps breaking windows but he looks like a hero, So who is more likely to the part of the hero in the play?

But under Lizard Street, beneath the dark bricks and cracked pavements, lurks the mysterious Krindlekrax, and when the monster threatens Lizard Street, Ruskin has a chance to prove he has what it takes to be a hero! This book fizzes with life and humour. Ridley looks set to be one of the most outstanding authors of the 21st century.


Sly Fox and Red Hen (Ladybird New Read It Yourself Level 2)
Sly Fox and Red Hen (Ladybird New Read It Yourself Level 2)
by Peter Stevenson

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool, 6 July 2008
Prey outwits predator in this rustic fable. Sly Fox, hungry for chicken soup, captures Red Hen in a bag and carries her toward his den. But Red Hen is a clever thing, and when the fox stops to doze, she escapes. Red Hen places heavy rocks in the bag and escapes; and Sly Fox discovers her handiwork only when the boulder splashes into his kettle of boiling water. Red Hen is a chubby thing and slender Sly Fox can't be blamed for working up a craving for her. The illustrations are delightfully lovely. The text style and size are perfect for the aimed age group which is 4 - 8. I think the age group should have been 2 - 6 because it is a little bit babyish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cluck cluck, 6 July 2008
When an acorn drops on Chicken Licken's head, he thinks the sky is falling down and rushes to tell the King. Chicken Licken is a great story for kids and keeps them entertained again and again. They love joining in with each part and trying out new voices for the characters. I love how the names rhyme: Chicken Licken, Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky, Goosey Loosey, Drakey Lakey, etc. This is a Level 2 Read It Yourself book and has simple sentences, easy vocabulary, clear readable type, exciting illustrations and engaging characters. This story is told in a way which uses regular repetition of the main words and phrases, which enables children to recognise the language more and more as they progress through the book.


Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Fast Track Classics)
Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Fast Track Classics)

3.0 out of 5 stars short but not sweet, 6 July 2008
Axel Lindenbrock's uncle, Professor Otto Lindenbrock, has found a piece of paper written in Old Icelandic. Axel shortly manages to make sense of it, and it leads him and his uncle to Iceland to an extinct volcano called Sneffells. There, they go down into its crater with the help of an escort named Hans Bjelke, in hope to get to the centre of the earth! They will face hunger, thirst, and tiredness, but odd Professor Lindenbrock will not give up until he is at the earth's core...or until he is dead!

This is not the whole story but only a shortened version that takes only about 40 minutes to read if you do not want to read the whole story or you want to tell a friend about the book.
