Sipdown! (50 | 123)

I prepared this one iced, as I figured I would enjoy the sweetness more that way. So I dissolved my two drops in a bit of warm water and then poured over ice and topped with cold water.

It doesn’t really taste like matcha to me? It does taste like a Japanese green tea, but it’s very heavy on the grass and seaweed-like umami, and doesn’t have the richness or the bitterness of matcha. It’s closer to drinking some kind of iced sencha IMO – a very, very seaweedy iced sencha.

That being said, it’s not the worst thing ever. Yes, it’s quite sweet, but it doesn’t bother me as much iced, which is nice. Definitely not something I would purchase though…

Flavors: Grass, Marine, Seaweed, Spinach, Sugar, Sweet, Umami

I remember liking this one and the Peppermint one best out of the sampler I tried.

I think I liked this best so far, but maybe having the Rose Earl Grey iced would improve it. I seem to have a higher tolerance for the sugar that way.

Sipdown (332)

I don’t like these tea drops. I have yet to find one that wasn’t overly sweetened. This tastes like sugar and then grass. Not the worst matcha flavour I’ve had, which surprised me, but the sugar is just over the top.

Martin Bednář

Matcha with too much sugar? Yucky.

VariaTEA

Yeah, it wasn’t great. I like flavored matchas and don’t overly mind sugar in those to create a flavor but sugary plain matcha seems wrong.

Martin Bednář

I had only one Tea-Drop. I like the concept, but I don’t like the flavours

VariaTEA

It’s a good idea but they are sweet and none of the flavors intrigue me much either. I got a bunch from an Instagram giveaway though so I am trying them out.

Lexie Aleah

I didn’t like them either this one and the peppermint one were my favorite of the sampler though.

Taste: The matcha aroma was there but as for the taste it reminded me of sugar water with a pinch of matcha. So far this one has the least flavor.

This most forgettable flavour of Tea Drop, and in a way doesn’t that kind of make it the worst one because it just wasn’t able to form a lasting impression? Like, I drank a full mug of it and I don’t think I could tell you anything about it aside from the fact it had the same two characteristics all of the other Tea Drop flavours had: it became sludge in the bottom of the mug and it tasted basically like a lightly flavoured sugar water…

VariaTEA

I won an Instagram competition for tea drops back in November and they haven’t sent them out yet so this company isn’t doing great in my eyes right now.

Roswell Strange

Tbh, I don’t think you’re missing out on much. But that’s still shitty.

DrowningMySorrows

I’m glad I’m not the only one who felt this way about Tea Drops. I expected more because of the great reviews on their site and people blogging about the teas, but to me they all tasted like someone trying to cover up the not-so-great flavor of low quality tea and/or poorly brewed tea by burying it in sugar. If this is what they call “lightly sweetened” then I’m afraid to know what heavily sweetened would be like.
