Iced Sipdown (253)

L is for…Lemonatcha

This is the second Lemonade-inspired matcha I am having in honor of the “L” day falling on #MatchaMonday. Like the other, this also came from Roswell Strange so thank you for both!!

This one specifically instructed making it as an iced tea. While I considered making it the exact same way as Lemonade Matcha, I decided I would rather have the sample as it is recommended to be had by the company. That said, it was also made a few hours ago and the ice is gone now. So maybe I am having them the same way after all…room temperature. Also from sitting, the cup has a clear gradient of clear water on top and dark powder at the bottom.

This one is much more my speed than Lemonade Matcha was. This is much sweeter and closer to lemonade. The matcha is secondary to the flavoring. Granted, its a preference thing since I know some people prefer to taste matcha first and then flavoring but this is much more to my personal tastes. It’s sweet, refreshing, and has a great lemonade flavor that is just so bright and delightful. The last mouthful is the only time I tasted matcha at all and it was because I got the settled powder. Even still, it was mostly hidden by the sugary lemonade flavor.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
