Day 2 – Matcha Advent

Not an awful lot of foam going on but I imagine that’s due to it being a blend of powders due to the acai. The foam I did create disappeared anyway after a few seconds.

The scent is similar to it’s raw form though not quite as sweet, though the blueberry is still very prominent.

Wow! My first sip was spectacular! Oodles of fresh blueberry exploded in my mouth with sweet and juicy notes before leading to a slightly astringent and dry after taste, which then lightens to leave the blueberry dancing on the tongue.

Even as it cools slightly the sweet tones are smooth and so easy to drink.

I didn’t expect to enjoy this blend so much if I’m honest. The flavour was so strong yet so good that I feel left out from not trying it sooner.

It might not have been foamy, but it was delicious!

Bird & Blend Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 2

Morning matcha milk time! Prepared with 1 teaspoon of matcha for 8 ounces of soy milk. There were some little dark lumps that didn’t want to dissolve – I think maybe it’s the acai powder?

Hmm. For me, the flavoring is too strong here. I say that because with my usual ratio for a matcha milk, the added flavor is too strong, which makes it seem artificial, and the matcha is too weak at the same time. I get a big wallop of dried blueberry and almost nothing from the matcha itself. There’s also some bitterness at the end of the sip, either from the matcha or the added flavoring.

I’m not saying it’s terrible, I can easily just use less matcha for the amount of milk and not have the overwhelming blueberry flavor. But then it wouldn’t taste like matcha at all. Maybe I’ll try this one with water to see if the matcha flavor stands up better that way.

Today’s Bonne Maman advent jam is Mango-Peach (Mangue-Pêche) spread. To me, it’s a peach jam with just a little bit of mango as an accent. In fact, I’m not sure I would notice that the mango was there. If you told me this was peach jam, I’d likely believe you. Tasty though!

I love this matcha. But I make it latte-style with vanilla almond milk, and it tastes just like blueberry muffins.

Cameron B.

Yeah, I guess my issue is I want my matcha to taste like matcha. Maybe that shouldn’t be a requirement for flavored matchas, I dunno. :P

1 teaspoon of matcha for 8 ounces sounds way too much?

Cameron B.

@tea-sipper – That’s the ratio I always use for matcha.

A Berry Frui-tea July! I decided to finally try out one of the flavored matchas from the tiny little matcha sampler tins I picked up from my last Bird & Blend (back when they were still Bluebird) order. I decided to go with the Super Matcha, since it is blueberry flavored and I’m going for the whole fruity theme.

Since I still haven’t endeavored to learn to whisk my own matcha yet, I typically put the half teaspoon of matcha and a half cup of 175 degree water into my milk frother (without the frothing attachment so it’ll just mix with the centrifugal force) on the “cold” setting (since the water has already been heated in my kettle). After the matcha is done, I transfer it to my mug, then put about a cup of vanilla almond milk into the milk frother, and let that run on the “warm” setting, add that to the mug, and give the mug a vigorous spoon-stir. I also added about half a teaspoon of honey to this latte.

The result of this matcha latte was blueberry muffin in a cup. It was very thick, rich, and creamy, and I was surprised it had such a strong, full blueberry flavor that lingered on the roof of my mouth, very sweet, with the slightest touch of berry tanginess, and reminescent of blueberry pancake syrup. The vanilla in the milk and touch of honey sweetness just added to the pastry-like flavor of the cup. It was really nice! I wasn’t really picking up any of the grassier notes of matcha, but then, I also made this cup with a lot of sweet additives, so that is what I was going for here. I don’t really have any complaints about how it turned out, at all.

087/365

This was last night’s latte, and I’m going to say straight off that it’s the best flavoured matcha I’ve ever tried. Brewed, this is like drinking liquid blueberry muffin – it’s absolutely spot-on juicy/sweet/slightly tart blueberry, and that’s one thing, but there’s also a deliciously creamy, cake-like flavour that I absolutely wasn’t expecting. I can’t even imagine where it came from, if I’m honest, but I hope every cup of this is as good.

If you like dessert teas, you really need to try this one. It’s amazing.
