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.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
