drank Grand Cru Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
678 tasting notes

My grandparents got me the matcha essentials kit for Christmas and my fiance got me some of this matcha for my birthday so I had to try it out. I’ve only had matcha mixed in with green tea lattes (with coconut) at a shop at my school so this is a new experience for me.

Well I googled how to make a matcha latte and I followed the instructions (minus the milk frother – perhaps I’ll order one). It’s a grassy, earthy taste. I’m enjoying it but it’s different for sure. I added a wee bit of coconut syrup to my and my fiance’s cup. Enjoying it a little more with the addition of coconut. I’ll definitely be trying out different ways of making matcha :)

Sounds interesting! I’ve never tried matcha – I should see if I can get a take-home cup from DavidsTea to try it out. Good luck with it.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
