From Dessert by Deb

There are some desserts that are so classic and so beloved that they’re a no brainer when it comes to being hopelessly devoted to them. Key Lime Pie is one of them – who can resist the tart juicy bright flavour of lime and lime curd paired with swoops and swirls of whipped cream? Dessert by Deb introduces a twist on this cult favourite to the Japanese & Asian Patisserie by marrying matcha, lime, and coconut for a creamy dessert and pie inspired blend like no other!

Ingredients: Green Tea, Natural Lime Flavour, Lime Pieces & Peel, Toasted Coconut*, Canadian Maple*, Ceremonial Matcha*, White Cornflower Petals,

Handcrafted in Toronto, Canada.

Steeping instructions: 2 tea spoons at 200F for 5-6 mins enjoy as a latte/with milk!

Truthfully I didn’t pay a ton of attention to this cup as I drank it because I was also playing a video game at the same time, but I remember thinking that I was yet again really impressed with another of Deb’s matcha dusted teas – they seem to catch me off guard each time I try them. In this case, it was the combination of the light and vegetal matcha with a very bright pop of lime. I liked the lime flavour a lot, though the overall cup was pretty light/mild. Is this the first time Deb has worked with lime!? I’m not sure.

Will have to try again with more attention given, and also think more about the “pie” aspect and if I feel like it’s been captured well in addition to just the taste of the lime…

I don’t usually care for Deb’s matcha green teas, but the lime really made this one for me.

I like this one a lot more than I expected. I haven’t been a fan of Deb’s other matcha teas – they’ve all been kind of same-y in a generic sweet coconut-ish way.

But the lime really helps add some interest. I will say, it doesn’t taste like key lime pie to me, mostly because the lime is more of a candy-like artificial lime as opposed to the tarter real thing. So instead it makes me think of a lime Jello salad, the creamy kind made with Jello and Cool Whip. And some coconut, of course. Sort of like a lime-flavored ambrosia salad?

Anyway, I dig it. I’m not sure I would order more, just because I don’t see myself craving this particular flavor profile. But will enjoy my 25g packet while it lasts!

I love lime teas, generally, but this one didn’t quite hit the spot. Maybe the matcha? I’m not entirely sure. Still did enjoy it, though, but not as much as I’ve enjoyed fluffy lime tea flavours in the past.

Today’s round in the tea tournament is this tea, Matcha Key Lime Pie vs Lemonberry Whip by 52 Teas aka Battle of the Citrus Dessert Teas. Check out the tasting note for Lemonberry Whip here: https://steepster.com/rachel12610/posts/423052

I purposely skipped over this battle yesterday so that this tea could do double duty and be both my tournament tea and my #MatchaMonday drink. And keeping on trend with my own Matcha Monday tradition, this got paired with this week’s read: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab.

This tea is nicer than I expected. Sometimes I get nervous with matcha blends but this is both dessert-like without being overly sweet. I get more lime in the scent than the flavor but its there. What took me by surprise is the pie crust element that seems to be coming through. I think it is from the coconut which is buttery and creamy and thus helping convey both the crust and the filling simultaneously. It’s quite nice actually.

Actually both this tea and Lemonberry Whip are quite evenly matched – sweet but not overly so. Still feel like you are enjoying dessert. Bright citrus notes in both. I find there is a slightly umami/grassiness from the matcha that isn’t really my preference and for that reason, Lemonberry Whip just pushed ahead. Both are good options though.
