DAVIDsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 23
I haven’t watched Geek Steep in FOREVER because I wanted to spend time picking awesome teas that I think suit the fandoms perfectly and I did not have time to do that during exams. However, today is a rare day where I have the main space to myself while my sister, brother-in-law and the baby are all napping. It’s also advent time so most, if not all my teas, are predetermined by that. Yet, I wanted to watch (listen to?) Geek Steep so I did something a little different today and decided to pair an episode to what I thought would best suit the tea I made.
I have never had this matcha but it seems fruity and fun and I made it as an iced latte topped with whipped cream and sprinkles. I also have not seen several of the fandoms covered but for some reason I thought this would pair well with Princess Jellyfish. Both seemed to have that flirty and fun vibe to them based off literally nothing more than names. I could be completely off the mark.
While making this matcha, I will say (1) I had not heard great things and (2) it smelled like a crappy fruit punch, so I don’t have high expectations going into this. Drinking it, I can confidently say I am not a fan of this matcha. That crappy fruit punch smell turned into crappy fruity gum in taste. Like juicy fruit that has been chewed slightly and then spat out into the grass. Wow…that was harsh…its not that bad but all those elements do sort of make sense for this matcha.
Here’s hoping this Geek Steep episode goes better than this matcha. So far so good…
