David’s Tea Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 1
(I bought this one and was gifted two other tea advent calendars, so there will be a lot of tea!)

I’m learning to make matcha and don’t generally care for pumpkin spice flavored things except pumpkin pie, so take this with a grain of salt, but I don’t think this tea is for me. It had an overpowering sweetness that didn’t remind me of pumpkin pie at all, but more like the artificial pumpkin spices that aren’t my thing. Every so often I’d detect some freshness behind it, but the cloying sweetness kept masking it. I think I also used too much water; not sure if that would have made the balance worse than it was meant to be?

Flavors: Sweet

DAVIDsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 1

ADVENT DAY!!! I was literally bouncing and jumping for joy and my family thought I was nuts but I was so excited. And I was also ignoring all of social media and steepster for fear of spoilers since my days end late and start late thanks to my weird hours dictated by school and baby.

Anyways, today has felt very hectic. I made this hours ago as a hot latte by tossing 3 perfect matcha spoons (maybe 1/2 the package) into 8 oz of milk while it frothed. I would have done 16 oz but my sister’s machine only holds 8. I had a few sips while it was hot and I really liked it. Like between the spices and sweetness, it was almost spot on for pumpkin pie for me. But, like I said, its been hectic so I am finishing the cup cold now. A little bit of the matcha has settled which is making the last few sips very sweet but umami flavored as well. Not loving that but perhaps that’s my fault for leaving it for so long. Overall, a pretty good start to the day.

Ya, last year I had an advent which was a gift from a friend spoiled for me and now I’m avoiding Steepster until it feels “safe”.

DAVIDsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 1

You guyyyyyys (and gallllls), it’s advent time! SQUEE! (happy dance)

So I’m hoping to do a note for every tea, and at least one Instagram post a day. Wish me luck! I’ll be starting my mornings with matcha from this advent and toast with jam from the Bonne Maman advent. So I’ll probably put a few notes at the bottom about the jam too!

I prepared this as a matcha milk. I used the whole packet, which is probably about a tablespoon or a little more? (I couldn’t find the volume or weight anywhere on the package or calendar) I first added a little warm water and whisked the matcha into a thin paste before adding unsweetened vanilla almond milk up to a volume of 8 ounces and blending with an electric milk frother.

How is it? It’s okay. I don’t mind the added flavoring, which does go well with the milk and taste similar to pumpkin pie. The sweetness is strong but not overwhelming, so I definitely wouldn’t recommend using sweetened non-dairy milks. It looks like there are actual spices in here? But they tend to sink to the bottom and there’s not much so I doubt it would add a lot of flavor. The flavoring does come off a teeny bit artificial to me as well.

I will say, I am not a huge fan of the matcha base. Even in milk it tastes rather bitter, which does not bode well for traditional preparation. Then again, they do recommend 16 ounces of water for one packet, so it would likely be quite diluted that way. I will definitely have to vary my preparation a bit! This flavor just seemed like a good choice to pair with milk. :D

Anyway, the jam! Today it’s Pear-Mirabelle Plum Spread, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I adore pear and plum is one of my most favorite preserves. I will say the pear is definitely the stronger flavor here, and it has a lovely sweet honeyed flavor. There are also some delicious big chunks of pear mixed in. I’m not sure how much I’m getting the plum? There is a little tinge of tartness there, but I know Mirabelle plums are supposedly very sweet so that could be why I can’t distinguish it well from the pear. Delicious though!

ADVENTS! Happy December! And, all the jam (the pear plum sounds amazing)! My Grand Cru from DT is also quite bitter, and I’m very careful to add water at a low temperature, but alas! I look forward to seeing how Teavivre’s matcha is instead. :)

I used 175°F water for this, so I could try a bit lower and see if that helps. I definitely have plenty of opportunities to improve my technique! ;)

Aaahh, Mirabelle spread. With pear. Sounds like a wonderful combo!

My David’s order arrived today! I’m a sucker for all things pumpkin and hadn’t tried a pumpkin matcha that I can recall, so I couldn’t resist adding this to my order. I heated some water, added a David’s matcha spoon full to a cup filled 1/3 of the way up, added 1/3 of creamer and frothed it up. It really does smell like pumpkin pie! So many pumpkin products rely on the cinnamon/clove/ginger pumpkin spice combo to invoke the feeling of pumpkin without pumpkin and it’s a little disappointing. The spices in this matcha are not overdone in an effort to mask a lack of pumpkin! I get a distinct pumpkin flavor that is supported by the spices. It’s harder to taste in the sip, but is very present in the finish. I do wish I had made this with a little more matcha so the flavors were stronger and cut through the allergy/histamine reaction I’m having, but it is still a surprisingly delightful cup! I wonder how quickly I’m going to end up going through this bag.

I saw that this was re-released on the DT site today, and decided to start a sip down of my remaining 2oz packet from last year (maybe 2 years ago?). I like this, but I much prefer the Gingerbread Matcha from DT over this one. Made as a hot latte (my first latte in months!) and it is quite comforting. But, I won’t be repurchasing after I’m out.

This was the first matcha I ever tried, back when it came out. And surprisingly I liked it. I had an iced cup of this yesterday and its still good – with the subtle flavour of pumpkin pie, and the cane sugar made it delightful. Great as a fall latte.

Sample from Hoalatha.

This is a fine wake me up tea to have before facing the drive to work/work itself. We’ve been moving slow with processing at work lately due to the holidays approaching; therefore, 90% of the day consists of either waiting for work and/or no work at all. Instead of going to work tired and wanting coffee (We don’t drink coffee here) to get me going, I was happy to find this in my stash of samples.

The flavor profile is simi-sweet because it was mixed with regular matcha. However, the balance of the matcha is perfect. The Pumpkin Pie Matcha comes out on the tip of the tongue—which gives it the right amount of sweetness—while the regular matcha gives you the right amount of umph needed for the day.

PS. Now that I’m officially done with school until I start the process for the English MA program, I will have time to review tea.

Cheers!

Overnight Oats, Take #2…

Taking the basic white lady stuff up a notch with this one; basically made a spiced pumpkin overnight oat. Same basic overnight oats recipe: oats, almond milk, two perfect matcha scoops of my matcha of choice, crushed pecans, and agave – in this case a pumpkin flavoured agave.

This was delicious; I mean, how could it not be!? Perhaps it was a little bit weird to be having a pumpkin spice, essentially, oatmeal in February – but that’s all just personal preference.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

All time favorite. Hands down, best thing ever lol. Im OBSESSED. Just bought 8oz of the stuff. I drink it every morning with milk. It has a custardy, sweet, pumpkin pie spice taste. Its perfectly sweetened, not overly done. I can’t get enough.
