drank Cranberry Matcha by 52teas
4359 tasting notes

Of the three flavored Matchas that 52Teas released recently, this was the one that I was least eager to try… I don’t know why I’ve got this predisposition to immediately dismiss cranberry flavored teas. I actually like cranberries… I just sometimes think I don’t.

This has a very nice cranberry aroma when I opened the pouch. The flavor of the cranberry is much softer, which is alright with me because I like how the cranberry and matcha unite. This is smooth and sweet, not too tart (although a nice cranberry tartness comes through at the finish and tickles my tongue) and just… YUM!

What was your ratio (or best estimated if you winged it)? I tried it this morning and got virtually nothing but thick, almost chalky matcha. It was only in the after taste. I really want to love this- please help:)

LiberTEAS

Three scoops with my chashaku, then I add a little hot water to do a pre-whisk (I found that this one was a bit lumpier than the other two). After I’m satisfied with my pre-whisk, I add a bit more water… filling my chawan to about the halfway mark. I don’t measure so I don’t know how much water this actually is, and I don’t know the capacity of my chawan.

Hmmm… That’s what I did. I used 8oz water. I’ll tinker w/ it on Mon after I get thru the other 2.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
