drank Matcha Salt by DAVIDsTEA
1029 tasting notes

Matcha Salt! I asked my sis to grab a can for me before she visited me from Victoria, BC. I do lots of cooking, so I thought this would be cool to try.

Price wise, pretty good. $4.50 for sea salt is pretty good (I’m not sure why, but sea salt here in the US is more than Canada, but kosher salt is cheaper and easier to find here than in Canada).

The tin is very tea tin looking, but you twist the lid to line up a hole on the lid for pouring the salt. Do not use this hole unless you want lots of salt! It pours out so fast and gives you lots of salt! I’d take a pinch out of the can and be gentle with it as it’s pretty salty.

Taste wise, there is a hint of grassyness in this salt. I paired it with stir fried kale which was pretty tasty. I added it to rare roast beef sandwiches which added a bit of grass to it. I found I liked this salt paired with vegetables more. I haven’t tried this with fish or chicken yet.

Ehhhh, I’m not not sure how to rate this salt. Curious? Like to cook? Be a good conversation piece at the table for sure.

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
