drank Matcha by Ta-Fu
1550 tasting notes

This is the first tea I’ve purchased in two months (besides the order I placed the other day). I’ve been out of matcha for like a month now and since I prefer to have it in protein smoothies, I thought I’d skip down to T&T and buy some cheaper stuff there. Because I haven’t been buying as much from DAVIDsTEA this calendar year, I’ve yet to gather enough points to get more free Grand Cru (for a long while there, it seemed like my free matcha was unlimited) but this’ll do.

$12 for 100g isn’t too shabby. It comes sealed in a foil pouch tucked inside a tin, and is a pretty bright green. I haven’t tried it alone but so far I’ve had it in this breakfast smoothie:

45g Natera hemp protein powder, blackberry pomegranate flavour
200ml almond-coconut milk
2g Ta-Fu matcha
76g frozen banana
75g frozen raspberries

I could barely taste the matcha, honestly. It’s those blasted, flavourful raspberries again. So next time I’ll up it to 4-5g. I could taste a hint of grassiness but nothing monumental. This is also the first time having the hemp protein and there’s a lot going on with that alone, as well. I’ll reserve rating this until I add more next time and see what happens.


Good for you for resisting temptation to buy more! I was doing good for a while, and then new teas came out from DAVIDs and Verdant. I also haven’t been buying very much from DAVIDS this calendar year as well.


Ugh I haven’t even checked out DAVIDsTEA’s fall collection yet. But really should! sounds like you are still doing very well though so you should still be proud.
