drank Strawberry Matcha by 52teas
4624 tasting notes

Guess what arrived today! I was very surprised (happily so!) to receive my package from 52Teas!

The strawberry flavor is a bit tart. Or it could be that the slight bitterness from Matcha brings out the tart of the strawberry. The sweeter strawberry flavor arrives on the palate in the finish as sort of a low note. The strawberry flavor is a really nice addition to the flavor of the Matcha. I think I like the mandarin matcha a little better though. Overall a very pleasant Matcha.

you post made me go tearing out of the apartment to go check my mail, sadly nothing from 52teas, but at least a swap was there so it wasn’t a total let down. hopefully it gets here soon!

Stephanie

Mine arrived today too! I’m just staring lovely at it right now—I’m almost hesistant to disturb its vacuum-packed glory!

Cofftea

No fair! I want mine! What matcha/water ratio did you use?

Ricky

Jealous!!! Mine won’t arrive till sometime next week!

SoccerMom

I’m jealous too! Who knows when mine will arrive.

LiberTEAS

Maybe Chelsea likes me better than the rest of you. (evil grin)

52teas

FYI, all of the initial Strawberry Matcha orders went out the same day, so it’s all up to the post office now, but I would bet that everyone in the US should have theirs Monday.

LiberTEAS

Maybe the postal service likes me better than the rest of you. After all, my father is a retired postmaster. (giggle)

LiberTEAS

By the way, Frank… how about a peach flavored Matcha? Yum… or… maybe do a Chelsea special to the matcha and make it chocolate covered banana matcha! Chelsea’s rooibos is still my favorite from 52Teas!

52teas

I actually think the next one might be a tuna melt matcha. :)

LiberTEAS

oh… yummy! Can’t wait for it.

Stephanie

lol!! :)))

AmazonV

i vote for plain tuna salad actually, celery, tuna, mayo ;)

LiberTEAS

onion too, please… I love onion in my tuna salad.

Cofftea

While I totally believe that 52teas is capable of tuna melt or tuna salad matcha, cheese and mayo flavors scare me. Can they be done w/o needing to be refrigerated like the real thing?

AmazonV

@Cofftea – yes! well at least the tuna http://www.asianfoodgrocer.com/product/dried-tuna-flakes-3-52-oz haven’t found a dry mayo yet

AmazonV

waiwait not what i wanted: http://culinaryarts.about.com/od/saladdressings/ss/mayonnaise.htm so mayo is eggs (comes dry powered) and oil….so i think it can be done flavor-wise

Geoffrey Norman

Man, I wish this was still on their site.

Cofftea

Yes, it’s sad it’s gone, but the other ones are equally as good!

Geoffrey Norman

I was eying the cranberry matcha.

LiberTEAS

@Geoffrey – the cranberry is probably my favorite of the three most recently released flavored matchas from 52Teas – I really like this one. Although, the other 2 are very good also.

Peer pressure really works on here.

Cofftea

Haha! Ooooh yeah.

Profile

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
