drank Plum Matcha by Matcha Outlet
5594 tasting notes

I picked this up in BrewTEAlly Sweet’s stash sale in my efforts to try all the matchas. Something about plum matcha milk just seemed weird so I decided to finally try the matcha soda that my tea triplet, Roswell Strange is so fond of. So my thoughts? Really tasty all around. There is a hint of plum flavoring but nothing too distinct. Mostly it is just fruity and sweet and a nice flavoring alternative to soda syrups.

I know what you mean. I have acai here, but I’ve been putting off having it with milk because it seems bizarre.

Roswell Strange

I have Acai and Cola earmarked for my last two cans of club soda. Somehow “Cola Milk” seems pretty unappealing…

VariaTEA

Aside from the weird carbonation flavor that club soda tends to have, this is a great alternative. I think I will try the eggnog matcha soda Roswell Strange loves so much because that has a fair amount of flavor to it.

VariaTEA

And Cola Milk does not sound great. Luckily I have my soda stream which means endless supply of club soda.

Courtney

Yeah Cola milk, puke. I don’t like pop either though haha. Maybe I’ll flatten it, then add acai. So essentially, water. :P

VariaTEA

haha I once put about a 1/2-3/4 tsp of matcha in a water bottle and drank it like that. Wasn’t bad.

Cheri

How do you do the matcha soda? How much of which and what? Cuz this sounds interesting……..

VariaTEA

I used maybe 1/2 an oz-1 oz of hot water to dissolve a 1/2 tsp and then filled the rest of the 8 oz cup with club soda

Roswell Strange

I’ve also had cold shaken matcha in a water bottle; it works best with the fruit flavours. Cola would maybe be ok in that method, though.

Cheri

I like the idea of club soda. I bet it would work really well with fruit flavors.

OMGsrsly

Cola float! :) I’d totally have the cola in milk, although I haven’t had a cola float since I was a kid, and honestly thought it was pretty gross. Root beer FTfloatW.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
