drank Mint Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
56 tasting notes

I love mint and I’ve been wanting to try matcha, so this seemed like a good way to try it out. When I opened the bag it smelled like iced tea powder? Unexpected, but ok. The matcha “powder” was more like granules, which was also unexpected. Prepared it as an iced latte by shaking 2oz warm water and matcha powder (two teaspoons) in a 1/2 pint mason jar for a minute, then I topped off the jar with milk and shook that for another 30 seconds. If I make it again this way I’ll use a full pint jar so I can get the milk really frothy. Poured it over ice in a 24oz cup and voila!

I actually ended up drinking a couple big gulps to make room for some more matcha as it was quite weak. Just added another heaping teaspoon and a splash of water in the jar, shook, and added that to the cup. It’s still really mild! I think the milk is just overpowering everything. I do get a nice cooling mint sensation at the end of the sip but I’m mostly tasting milk with a teeny tiny hint of grass. The grass taste might be making the milk taste extra cow-y in fact… not super pleasant. I bought 50g of this so I’ll have to try it with a non-dairy option and see if that helps. I have other teas I’d like to try with almond/coconut milks so it all works out. Overall, not bad but I think I can play around with it and make it more to my liking. I’m eyeing up Red Leaf Teas reviews… may have to try them as well!

Note: as I got closer to the bottom and the latte was watered down more, the mint started to taste stronger! I’ll do 50/50 water to milk next time and see if this helps!
