With this flavor from Jade Monk, I decided rather preparing it like a Matcha (with hot water, whisking it in my chawan), I chose to mix it with cold water and stir vigorously. This Matcha drink is MUCH BETTER using this cold water method rather than attempting to prepare it like traditional Matcha. Even with the stevia, the stevia tastes less bitter and leaves less of a funky aftertaste. I still taste the stevia, but, it doesn’t taste as “off” as it did when I prepared the peach matcha from Jade Monk with the hot water.

Still, I’d rather there be no stevia in this at all. But, stevia is a better alternative sweetener over aspartame which I cannot drink… So, I guess … for what this is, it’s pretty good.

The more I drink of this, the more I enjoy it. It is sweet and the cranberry and blood orange are a nice combination of sweet with just enough tart to keep it from tasting too sweet. Overall, it’s pleasant, I don’t taste a lot of the Matcha … but I can feel it’s energizing effects.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
