drank Cola Matcha by Matcha Outlet
871 tasting notes

I have been waiting to try this one. I was holding off for some reason, not sure, delayed gratification maybe.

Anyway, the dry matcha smells DELICIOUS! It smells of generic cola, my favorite flavour. I could barely wait to try it, but it was bedtime by the time I opened the package so had to wait until today. Smells very much like cola flavoured candies. I made this one cold shaken for work. I put the matcha mix and a bit of white sugar in my glass water container at home, then added the water at work. The taste is a bit disappointing considering the smell. There is still a cola taste but it is not quite there. It is like you are waiting for the taste to hit and you can feel it coming but it never does. I am going to experiment with some different sweeteners because I think that could help bring out the taste.

Edit: OK so I read a bunch of reviews on this after I drank it. First of all, just to point out, this was robust flavouring. I think I need to try a bit more matcha in the mix. I used 1/2 tsp per 8 oz, which is my norm for Red Leaf matches, but I think I need to try 1tsp. And it seems that most people did not add sweetener, so I will have to try that and keep you posted.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
