drank Cola Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
517 tasting notes

I know, I know, I just made a tasting note, but this one is different! I just made a cold matcha for the first time! It’s…not as great as I’d hoped. Possibly I’m just mourning the lack of carbonation that suddenly seems to be missing. I think I have too much water, but I just added more cola matcha to my cold water (and shake!) and it got a little bit more matcha-y but not much more cola-y. Guess I’m just disappointed, I had such high hopes and this one smells so good! Mayhap I will try this one traditional style next time.

ETA: Doh, no wonder it doesn’t taste right, I forgot to add sugar! Added about a half teaspoon of sugar to my 16 oz or so of water and it suddenly tastes much better. Might try a full teaspoon next time, if I remember. Usually I just use half, but this is a lot more liquid than I normally have for matcha.

How much matcha did you add to the water? I was planning on making a cold matcha tomorrow but not sure how much to use.

I added a full teaspoon and the flavour was still not that strong. I haven’t mastered making this matcha yet, sorry.
