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.

Flavors: Artificial, Blueberry, Grass

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. :)

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.

DAVIDsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 3

Today I decided to try this one as an iced latte made the way DAVIDsTEA recommends making them: https://www.davidstea.com/ca_en/explore/how-to%3A-any-tea-anywhere/how-to-make-an-iced-matcha-latte/. Things got messy so I am thinking I may invest in a chawan that has a spout for pouring…maybe. My whisking can also use some work. However, I did buy matcha makers and those should be arriving soon so hopefully they help with these issues.

As for the iced latte, its pretty good, though I think the amount DAVIDs recommends using is too much. I used the whole sample packet and it is very sweet. I get sugar up front but berry sugar. So in that sense, I guess it is true to the flavor…sorta. Also, its an iced latte so its creamy but I can’t say if that cream is coming from the matcha or just the prep method. Overall, its good but I would use less matcha powder next time given the sugar that is added.

Wow, their recipes use a lot of milk!

I prepared this as an iced latte, and it was what I pretty much expected. There is a lot more emphasis placed on the “berries” aspect in regards to the flavouring. It’s reminiscent of a blueberry-açai “power fruit” juice or what have you. The matcha powder itself isn’t as aromatic as I would have expected (unlike its Honeydew cousin).

But, come to think of it, I need to give DAVIDsTEA credit for the berry flavouring to not be artificial to the point that it tastes like actual chemicals. That was a huge issue I had with Red Leaf Tea’s fruit-flavoured matcha. Almost every one I tried had an extremely off-putting chemical undertone, whereas this does not.

sounds interesting. I might have to try it.

WandaVision Binge Watch – Ep 1

Sipdown (1322)!

After a few weeks of prodding from both Marika (my other half from Geek Steep) and VariaTEA I ended up finally starting and catching up on WandaVision yesterday afternoon/evening. I decided to make a proper binge out of it and pair a tea with each episode while “live blogging” my episode reactions to our group chat…

I got a bunch of movie snacks delivered and made this one up into a matcha infused milkshake for my first episode watch – my loose thought process was that I had this “perfect pairing” of berries and cream, representing Wanda and Vision, and the milkshake capturing the “malt shop” feeling of the 1950s, which is the era that inspired the first episode of this “sitcom”.

It was just bonus that this was also a sipdown.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
