Used this for my breakfast smoothie… I missed my smoothies over the last few days as I wanted to drastically cut back on my dishes until my sink got repaired, and smoothies require a lot of washing up.

Wisked 1 tsp in 1 cup coconut milk. I don’t like sampling in coconut milk because of its sweetness/strong flavor, but this carton is now desperately close to going off and now that Smoothie Town is open again, I have to use up the carton stat!

The strawberry in this is quite sweet, and waxes a little more toward strawberry-flavored candies than actual berries, since there is just no berry tanginess present. I couldn’t taste the matcha itself, which I’m sure was due to the coconut milk, since it added another layer of sweetness and a noticeable coconut flavor. The strawberry complimented the coconut flavor nicely, though!

And the mixed smoothie was one of the best I’ve had yet! The strawberry matcha coconut milk latte was blended with frozen mango, a teaspoon of lime juice, and a bit of yogurt and the strawberry really popped with the combined flavors; I think the tang of the citrus and the sweetness of the mango helped bring it closer to a “berry” feel and further away from “candy.” The flavor integrated so well, so it is there but the other elements are there as well, unlike, say, the Bubble Gum Matcha which had a flavor that overpowered the smoothie quite a lot.

One serving left, and I’m looking forward to recreating this smoothie for tomorrow’s breakfast, as well!

DAVIDsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 21

This smelled lovely when I pulled it out of its drawer this morning. Very candylike but I’m okay with candylike strawberry so was excited to try it. Prepared with 8 ounces of warm water and 4 ounces of warm milk.

Prepared this way, it tastes pretty much exactly like strawberry Pocky… Very creamy and decadent artificial candy strawberry. The flavoring rather overpowers the matcha here, which I can perhaps taste a hint of if I cross my eyes and concentrate. There is a touch of bitterness that pops up at the end of the sip.

I’m enjoying this cuppa this morning as a sort of “guilty pleasure” matcha due to it reminding me of Japanese strawberry sweets. :)

As for the jam, today’s selection is White Nectarine-Peach Spread. To be honest, I had no idea white nectarines were even a thing… But I love stonefruits, so this sounds delish to me! Yum, it has such a fresh nectarine and peach flavor. I will say there is little-to-no tartness here, and I feel like a little bit would really help punch up the crisp stonefruit flavors. Even so, this is scrumptious for an apricot jam lover like myself!

Have you ever gotten to sample white peaches? Hard to find in my part of the world, but firmer and milder than regular “squooshy” peaches.

Cameron B.

Yes, I have tried white peaches! I remember them being more delicate, but not much else. :P

derk

White nectarines taste like candy to me, so delicate and sweet.

LuckyMe

I bet a Strawberry Pocky flavored matcha would make a delicious latte. Perhaps blending this with a straight matcha would balance out the flavoring.

Sipdown! 83/365

Today I learned that you’re supposed to use 5-7 matcha spoonfuls of DT’s flavoured matchas for 16oz water. A matcha spoonful is 1/2 tsp, so that’s 2.5-3.5 teaspoons. That’s a lot! Especially as it is heavy/dense. Anyhow, I think I purchased maaaaaybe 2 teaspoons of each matcha, so I just used this one up entirely today (I’m only making 8oz, possibly less). Today has clearly been a long day, because I drank it this morning and am struggling to recall it. I do know that blueberry was better, but I could taste light strawberry. I think I wished it was stronger and more candy-like. Not bad, though.

Personally I NEVER use more than 4 perfect matcha spoons max when making matcha for myself. Usually less than that. So don’t worry about not using the “right”/recommended amount if you’re enjoying the taste at a lower gram amount.

VariaTEA

I use 1/2 tsp/8 oz when making matcha. I don’t think I ever strayed from that so 2.5-3.5 tsps seems a bit nuts

Kittenna

I honestly didn’t measure anything, I just dumped things in my cup :D I’m drinking everything with milk, so it’s pretty hard to get it too strong, but I’m still really surprised at that recommendation for a non-latte. Good to know that I’m not crazy in thinking so (I can’t imagine that the added sweetener adds that much volume…)

This is pretty good whisked with milk for a sort of over latte effect. Whisked in hot water, it’s unpleasantly grassy. Not too sad to be finished with this one.

I bought this one during the summer while I was pregnant. Because of the caffeine and not wanting to overdo it, I didn’t try this one and bought 100g blind, hoping I would love it. Thankfully I was right! This tea is so delicious. I made it up with some milk because I haven’t been able to master drinking matcha straight up yet. I’m hoping I will be able to someday, but as of right now, it’s not happening.
Anyways, so I probably made this a bit stronger than needed. I grabbed the wrong spoon. I used my Teaopia teaspoon instead of my matcha spoon… so probably an extra half a scoop than needed, but oh well. This would make a great latte. I would probably love that. And I’d probably even enjoy this one as either an iced latte or iced tea with a splash of milk. Either way.
So I should actually mention something about the flavour of this one. haha It’s got a really nice strawberry flavour. It’s really spot-on, which makes me very happy. It doesn’t taste like artificial strawberries. I don’t get a lot of the green tea flavour, but that’s okay. It’s there, but not very strong. My only “complaint” about this one is that it is VERY sweet. Like, very sweet. I would have preferred if they had cut back on the cane sugar a bit.

But even still, I will enjoy this one quite a bit. I’m glad I got 100g and I will probably get more if it comes back.

Adventaggedon Day 21 – Tea 6/6

Pretty stoked to see this tea in the morning as, for a very long time, it was my favourite matcha from DT a few years back. It’s such a surprisingly creamy strawberry flavour that it’s always reminded me a bit more of a Strawberry Milkshake or, simple, Strawberries & Cream matcha profile over anything else…

I debated all day how to make it, but I ended up doing it hot in a travel mug with a tiny splash of cream while out for a walk and then while grocery shopping. It’s already such a creamy flavour that it didn’t need much cream to boost those elements and really I added in the cream to make the mouthfeel thicker/richer more than anything else.

Super enjoyable – can’t wait to see what tomorrow’s advents bring!

Made this today as a matcha latte with almond milk and sugar. It is quite tasty. Strong strawberry flavor but not too much matcha flavor. Overall while this is probably not considered a ceremonial grade matcha it is pretty tasty.

Making of this was simple. I have limited access to my tea ware now. So I put three matcha scoops of matcha in a cup, added about 10oz 175 degree water and then uses an Ikea frother to mix the matcha. I then added the sugar and almond milk and used the frother again. Came out quite tasty.

Yum! This is a very good matcha to mix with milk. Tastes just like a strawberry milkshake with the matcha kick to it.

Do you know strawberry milk? The super sweet stuff you buy in bottles (usually when you’re a kid)? Well, that’s what this tastes like. Strawberry milk but for adults because of caffeine.

It would be interesting to try some other flavors of matcha that DAVIDs has to offer since it’s certainly easier than Red Leaf Tea to get ahold of. Maybe I will hit up a store while I still have my 20% off discount (or is it 30% now?).

Have you tried Lupicia’s strawberry match? And if so how do they compare

MrQuackers

I actually have tried strawberries blended with a good amount of matcha making a hot 500 mL drink. With sugar, the taste was more like hot apple cider with the strawberries acidity. These were super fresh summer berries. Didn’t taste like strawberry jam to me. Lol
