From Bird & Blend Tea Co.

Our brand new tropical fruit mocktail tea powder is ground to Japanese specifications, so you get all the flavour of green matcha but none of the caffeine! We’ve used a superfuel-ed combination of baobab, lucuma & coconut nectar to keep this sweet treat healthy too!

How are we drinking it?

We LOVE this blend as an iced latte, with coconut milk of course! To make this at home, make your tea powder as normal then pour over ice & top up with coconut milk. Adding a cocktail umbrella, a slice of pineapple & a splash of rum or Malibu also turns this beaut into a sweet summer time cocktail without any of the calories!

Ingredients: Baobab fruit pulp, coconut nectar sugar, lucuma, lemon peel, natural flavouring granules.

A new tea powder from Bird & Blend I haven’t tried yet! I whisked it in coconut milk as a) that seemed appropriate and b) I really need to finish off this carton before it goes off.

The drink is very sweet, and I’m not sure how much of that is from the tea powder (coconut nectar sugar) and how much is from my coconut milk. Obviously I taste coconut (I mean… the milk) but oddly enough, the main flavor I’m getting from the powder itself is a guava/pear sort of taste. I see it is made with “Baobab fruit pulp” and “lucuma”, two things my uncultured tongue has never had before. A little research tells me baobab can be “citrusy”, “tangy pear”, or “sour mango”… I’m not really tasting citrus (wonder if the sweetness is countering the tang?) but maybe that is the tropical pear note I’m getting? Lucuma is also apparently very sweet! But I was expecting pinapple, because… pina colada! And I’m not tasting pinapple. It does taste tropical, but I’m still a little disappointed. The texture is also a bit chalky/grainy, which I also experienced with B&B’s rooibos-base tea powder, so I’m wondering if this something I’m going to consistently experience with their “not-matcha” powders. I don’t recall having this issue with any of their matcha base powders…

After sampling, I put the latte into a mango smoothie and blended it up. That takes care of the texture issues, at least! Oddly enough, I am finding more citrus notes popping in the smoothie (a tangy lemon?), but I still taste that “tropical pear” flavor, and am not tasting pineapple, which is what I was really hoping for.

I wanted to like this iced latte that I had on Matcha Monday weeks ago. Bird and Blend recommends this as an iced latte with coconut milk and I can see how that could be better. Unfortunately with plain milk, this is too strongly tasting of powder and artificial flavor. I am not a fan.

Another new (to me) Bird & Blend matcha!

I suppose this is technically speaking not a matcha – but I’m down with more liberal interpretations of what a matcha is so I don’t mind the branding choice. It was very easy to “whisk” up, though it doesn’t really froth like a matcha and the particles don’t stay suspended in the water as long as a matcha would.

In terms of taste this is DELICIOUS – but why wouldn’t it be!? I love almost anything pina colada flavoured, and I especially love when a pina colada inspired tea puts a bit more emphasis on the pineapple. That’s exactly what’s happening here! I mean, technically any pineapple I’m tasting is coming from flavouring and not actual pineapple – but I’m sure the lemon peel/lucuma/baobab are playing into the general fruitiness as well. I kinda get the lemon in particular; it’s just vaguely citrusy which works with the strong tropical vibes. Coconut is a little creamy, but mostly sweet. In general, this matcha is very sweet. Very, very sweet. It’s kind of sticky and coating too – I feel like it’s lingering in the bed of my mouth for a really long time and while I find it awesome I totally get how this whole tea would probably be a little much for anyone who doesn’t love sweet things, pineapple, or both…

The other note worthy thing? ZERO texture issues! That’s a big trigger for me with Bird & Blend matchas – but this one is smooth a silk.

Yeah. I’m a fan.

How did you prep it. I have this at home and need to make it.

Just whisked a matcha spoon and a half (roughly; I eyeballed) in a mug of near boiling water.
