We are back in “self-isolation” after a sudden fever in my toddler on Saturday night. He was fine the next morning, but the lovely new rules and lack of testing availability in Ontario mean we have to assume it was covid. Really cramping my plans of easing into one-parent mat leave (husband went back to work last week) when we can’t access my planned outside help (grandparent, daycare). Frustrating! Been starting my 2-kid days of isolation with matcha “lattes” (just made with half water/half milk, no fancy frothing) in an attempt to have enough energy. I’m not sure it’s working, but that could be related to lack of sleep and recovering from sickness. Also, my toddler is obsessed with colour-changing mugs, so this kills two birds with one stone as I get a hit of caffeine + entertain him for a few minutes!
Anyhow, this was one matcha latte in a long line to come, most of which haven’t been quite as satisfying as I want but were fine. I want this to be more BERRIES, especially since I’m kind of taking care of the cream aspect with the milk. It’s fine, but I just want more.
The flavor of the matcha itself is really pleasant. The berry was a tiny bit chalky and fake, but overall tasty. Good balance of berry and matcha flavors with a little bit of cream. I don’t buy matcha, but if I did, this one would be a possibility. It was my second favorite of all the matchas I tried.
Pulled another advent matcha sampler out for my breakfast smoothie tomorrow. As per usual, whisked the full tablespoon sample in one cup plain oat milk, cold, and sampled.
Compared to the other fruity flavors I’ve had thus far, I think I like this one the best so far, just because by being “berries and cream” my brain immediately switches to something sweet so the sweetness of the matcha feels complimentary rather than distracting from the flavor. Plus this was a nice “mixed berry” sort of flavor; I use the raspberry/blueberry/blackberry mix in my smoothies a lot and have a distinct “taste” in my head when those things combine, which I was getting here. That, just sweet, rather than having the tart/tangy fruity bite I’d expect from mixed berry.
Despite using the full packet, which usually allows me some matcha taste beneath the flavors/sweetness, I actually did not notice any grassy/umami matcha notes from this one.
I mixed this latte with a cup of frozen peaches (my other frozen fruit on hand at the moment are all berries and I wanted something that would provide a juxtaposing flavor) and a little yogurt (less than usual since my carton is very low and I want to get one more smoothie out of it for Friday morning before doing weekend grocery shopping). It worked well; I was getting the distinct sweet mixed berry taste from the matcha, but could also taste the peaches as well, and the flavors blended together nicely.

David’s Tea Matcha Advent Day 3.
I struggled with this one a lot. Still can’t make a foam! The first taste made me think “fake blueberries and grass”. Unfortunately I don’t much like a blueberry, and the artificial taste was even more off-putting.
I tried adding milk. Now it was fake blueberry and milk; grass disappeared. I’ll drink most things iced, so I poured it over ice; nope.
This one got dumped.

DavidsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar 2020 – Day 3
Berries and Cream! I was skeptical of this one out of the package…it smelled so fruity, I was like how can this go with matcha? Let’s say I was pleasantly surprised! I prepare all my matcha the same way when I have them the first time – 175 degree water, whisk a bit in to make a froth, pour into one of my two littlest mugs, top up my little mug with hot water. This one was berry tasting and creamy, quite enjoyable! I didn’t find the berry too artificial, which is what I was worried about. It went down smooth, so will have no trouble finishing up the sample!
DAVIDsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 3
Good morning, Steepster!
I prepared this one as a sort-of latte. I used the whole packet (about a tablespoon I think?) using 12 ounces of warm water. Once I got it all combined nicely, I added another 4 ounces of milk. I did mix it using a frother, but didn’t really make any foam as it just didn’t sound good this morning.
This is pretty tasty. It has a strong enough berry flavor to stand up to the milk, and the sweetness isn’t overwhelming. I think I get blueberry and raspberry for sure, and maybe strawberry too. The matcha has a pleasant grassy flavor that’s, of course, a bit subdued by the milk. I will say the berry flavor is a tad artificial-tasting for me, but admittedly I often have issues with mixed berry flavoring in tea tasting chalky. Still a pleasant cuppa this morning!
So the jam for today is Mango-Peach-Lime Spread! I’ve had Bonne Maman’s regular Mango-Peach preserve so I’m interested to try this one. I will say, the lime is fairly strong and I love the effect it has! It adds such a nice bright zingy note to the sweet fruits and pairs perfectly with the mango. It’s not too tangy though, and has a good balance of sweet and tart. So good, I wish I could buy this one normally! ❤

Thank you for the swap, Amandastory5016. :D
I’ve drank matcha all my life. Usually the traditional way. This is the first time I’ve ever tried flavored matcha. True story hehe, which is why I really appreciate the swap so I can try some. I look forward to the others you sent. This one is a bit chalky as someone mentioned but the flavors of berries, vanilla and cream as well as the matcha itself is very pleasant. It is too sweet for me but I’m sure I can send some to my nephew who will appreciate that part. :)
Flavors: Berry, Cream, Sugar, Sweet, Vanilla
It’s hard for me to know how much matcha to use when it has sugar and other ingredients bulking up the powder. It seems that whatever was left in the sample sized bag I got was the perfect amount. I added some creamer (which is slightly sweetened) and got a very pleasant cup. I get matcha at the start of the sip with a little grass and berries more in the aftertaste. Hard to tell about the cream part after adding my own cream, but the overall taste is indeed creamy. I like this one and can see it making a really good summer drink served over ice. I would consider buying it again.
