Sipdown! (31 | 31)

So I haven’t been craving matcha much lately, not sure if it’s because of the cooler weather or what. But I don’t want to let my matcha languish into sad brown blandness, so I’m going to make an effort to have some every day or two until I sip through everything.

This pouch was my first time trying this one from 3 Leaf, and I really enjoyed it. To be honest though, I’ve enjoyed all of their flavors so I wasn’t surprised. I always prepare my matcha as an iced oat milk “latte” (although it’s not foamed), and this flavor has a really nice blueberry oatmeal or muffin sort of vibe that way, especially since I sweetened it with maple syrup. The blueberry here is definitely more of a dried blueberry flavor IMO, like you might find in blueberry instant oatmeal or Blueberry Morning cereal. So it has more of a concentrated, sweet flavor rather than a tart, fresh one.

Very tasty! I think the raspberry is still my favorite of their fruity flavors, but they’re all good. I probably won’t order again for a while since I’m not really drinking a lot of matcha at the moment, but I would buy this one again.

Flavors: Blueberry, Creamy, Dried Fruit, Freshly Cut Grass, Grassy, Oatmeal, Sweet, Syrupy

Preparation
Iced 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I really like the matcha’s from 3 Leaf. I have tried birthday cake, lemonade and banana. I will have to try blueberry and raspberry. Have you tried their hojicha powders? I definitely want to try theirs.

@Jean – The peach matcha is really good too! I have tried some of their hojicha powders and the banana is definitely my favorite, but I haven’t tried the cinnamon yet.

Bio

Hi, I’m Cameron!

I’m a 30-something software engineer currently living in Austin, Texas with my husband and our two pugs, Gobo and Ume. I tend to cycle between my different hobbies, and they include piano, knitting, video games, board games, miniature painting, planners, bento, KBeauty, and – of course – TEA! But really, what I’m best at is “collecting” hobby-related things… ;)

~ 2024 SIPDOWN CHALLENGE! ~
- May Sipdowns: 20
- Total 2024 Sipdowns: 33

I prefer my tea lukewarm or at room temperature and without milk or sugar. I steep Western style, and fluctuate between using big mugs or small teapots depending on the season.

I am always up for a swap! Just let me know if you’d like to try something in my cupboard.

Tea Preferences:
I enjoy both flavored and unflavored teas in many forms. These days, I drink mostly flavored teas, and I tend to gravitate most toward black, green, oolong, and herbal varieties. I do have a special fondness for straight Japanese green teas, however.

I do not sweeten my teas, and pre-sweetened teas are usually too sweet for me. I also do not enjoy stevia.

I tend to reach for fruitier flavors rather than desserty ones these days, but I do have favorites from both categories. Willing to try anything once! There are a few ingredients/flavors that aren’t generally my jam, such as coconut, rose, lavender, and chocolate flavoring. But I also have teas that I love with some of those things, too! :)

Favorite Companies:
3 Leaf
Bird & Blend
Dammann Frères
Harney & Sons
Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms
Lupicia
Old Barrel Tea Co
Simpson & Vail
Taiwan Tea Crafts
TeaVivre

Tea Rating Scale:
90-100: Outstanding! Permanent cupboard resident
80-89: Great – a possible staple
70-79: Good, but I wouldn’t buy it
60-69: It’s decent
50-59: Meh… I may or may not have finished the cup
40-49: Ick. Couldn’t finish it.
00-39: Repulsive, I spat it out

I will sometimes refrain from rating a tea if I feel I’m too biased due to my personal dislikes, or if I suspect the sample has been compromised by age or scent contamination.
