DavidsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar 2020 – Day 18

Backlog from this past Friday – um, so I don’t know what happened with this tea when I made it, but I do need to make it again because the first cup was disastrous LOL. It smelled funky when I opened it, honestly…like cat food? LOL. So I was like ok…..let’s try making it. So I made it in my usual way, 175 degree water, whisk, top up with hot, drink. It did not froth at all, but since it’s a coconut nectar matcha, I’m not surprised lol. But what the heck, still smelled wayyy off. So tried a sip, BLECH. Also tasted off HAHAHA. So not sure what was going on or if my taste buds were having a moment, but this got dumped. I do want to try it again, in case it was just me….but this one and I did not have a good start lol.

Will try again another day, but for now definitely not a favorite haha.

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
