drank Matcha Superior by Teaopia
107 tasting notes

I ended up with this matcha when we got sent some old Teaopia stock to clear out. It’s…okay, but doesn’t froth well, and I am pretty much using it up in lattes and such.

Yesterday at Second Cup, I noticed they have some syrup flavours out for sale that I do not have yet. I currently have their soda vanilla, caramel and peppermint, but they were selling some others including orange and toasted marshmallow…so I picked those up.

Today, I made an iced orange creamsicle matcha latte! About a cup of matcha with a half-cup of milk (more tea to milk, I wanted the tea to be stronger), a half-teaspoon of the vanilla syrup and one and a half teaspoons of the orange.

Pour the matcha and syrup over ice, shake well, strain into a big icy mug.

Froth the cold milk in a separate cup, top up the mug with the cold frothed milk.

NOM. A bit indulgent (90 calories from the syrup, probably around 10 for the matcha, plus whatever milk you use), but totally worth it when it is boiling hot out.

Now I’m trying to figure out what I can do with the toasted marshmallow.

I’ve always been a tea drinker – I grew up drinking Tetley’s Orange Pekoe and their Chai, and considered myself to really like tea.

I’ve been working various retail jobs to put myself through higher education. One day at my store, a customer left a newly purchased bag of loose-leaf behind. We waited for three days for said customer to return, but they (likely not realizing where they had left their bag) did not return to claim the would-be brew. Too bad for them; lucky for me! I claimed the bag, took it home, and awkwardly made my first cup of loose-leaf tea with the only strainer we owned which was small enough.

I haven’t bothered with Tetley since. For the most part (and due to convenience), my patronage is limited to David’s Tea and Teavana. I also order from 52teas and Verdant Tea.

My rating system – hah, I don’t have a rating system. I rate teas a lot like Ebert rates movies. Everything’s relative.

I may often forget to mention it, but you can safely assume everything I drink is sweetened in one way or another – most rock sugar, or honey for green and white teas. I have not yet achieved drinking most tea clear. The few teas I drink unsweetened include milk oolong and genmaicha so far.

I currently work for Teavana. But I just work there, and my opinions about any of their teas are entirely my own and not meant to be reflective of the views of the company.
