drank Matcha Salt by DAVIDsTEA
682 tasting notes

Picked some of this up yesterday out of curiosity – the smell has a hint of matcha, but I didn’t find that to be present in the taste. I used it on supper last night and it really packs a salt punch – but be careful to use just a little unless you want a very salty meal. It’s neat, but more of a gimmick than a necessity for me, I think.

Well thanks for sharing!

I wondered about this – thanks for the review!

Cedes

Oh darn, I was hoping it would be amazing!

I might get it anyways just because I need a good coarse salt for things like pretzels or soft caramels – I might just have to add a bit more plain matcha too ;) Thanks for the review!

Bonnie

I think this would be useful for cooking and dusting things with. I saw some chocolates with matcha inn them that were then dusted all over with matcha powder. So, the idea of something sweet dusted with the salty matcha or something like that would be a culinary use. A straight shot might be way too much salt.

You can also make your own by mixing matcha and himalayan sea salt/ fleur de sel. Yum!

Bonnie

I just bought some from Cube in L.A. that taste’s better than most fleur de sel’s I’ve had. Still, salt….for drinking….I’d only use it for culinary use even as matcha.

@Bonnie, I understand it to be marketed only for cooking. No-one would want to drink this – although apparently my fiancee thought that was the intention at first! : )

Azzrian

I want some!

It would be a risky move from David’s to start selling tea confections and jelly at their stores, but I’d love them to.

Bio

I am a lover of many things, but my passions include my records, tea and books (not necessarily in that order!) I embrace local food and good cooking as much as I can, and place great value on time with family and enjoying the bounty of nature. As of January 2014 my husband and I finally moved to the country to be closer to family and continue our journey in a family home. We have been wanting to do this for a couple years, so we are very excited to follow our hearts. We also have a wonderful kitty named Emma that is the princess of the house.

I am drawn toward good Chinese blacks, enjoy some herbals and the odd roasted oolong. Greens and whites can make me nauseous, but I will have flavoured ones on occasion. While I don’t yet adore puerh, I am giving it my best effort. Chamomile and coconut are the devil though, I wish they didn’t exist. Mint has been a particular favourite of mine since childhood, and I enjoy both flavoured and pure teas though unflavoured blacks are tops for me.

As for ratings, I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: WOW. This is the cream of the crop.
71 – 80: This is a solid tea. I enjoy it, and would recommend it to others, but may not repurchase.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. May try again to improve.
41 – 60: Bleh. Might finish it, but it’s not to my taste OR just doesn’t impress me at all.
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
