From Harney & Sons

This powdered tea has been the pride of Uji for several centuries. It has been used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony. The Thin Grade pairs especially well with chocolates. Traditionally drunk hot (although we offer it iced at our stores), Jobetsugi is a mouth-filling experience. The spinach and artichokes flavors are most prominent. Since this is a thin matcha, the flavors are slightly muted. The natural tastes of Tencha are amplified exponentially. This matcha tastes intensely of spinach and artichokes, followed by a bracing caffeine bite.

I need to start drinking coconut water because of its high dose of electrolytes. But I HATE coconut. So I decided to add matcha to it. Everything’s better w/ matcha, right? I took a small sip of it before adding the matcha and shockingly it doesn’t really taste like coconut. It’s REALLY sweet (I can’t believe companies actually sweeten this) and has a slightly off taste I can’t place. Maybe this won’t be so bad because I like matcha lemonade.

Ok… BAD idea. I’m not sure how or why, but matcha made this worse! I had to chug it really fast and gaged when I was done. BAD, BAD, BAD idea. Can someone please give me an idea for a coconut water/matcha combo that won’t make me want to puke?

Maybe add a bit of Orange juice or pineapple juice? I think the citrus would cut the coconut flavor. I haven’t tried it though.


I’m thinking lemon. It already has PLENTY of sweetness to be “lemonade-esque”. Although I’ve already tried once to make it better and failed miserably lol.


What about Coconut Milk in foods or Coconut Oil or Butter in others?


NOTE: I do know there are differences in the Coconut Milk and Coconut Water…and the electrolytes are not the same in both but just some more coconut options for you that may even be interchangeable with the milk VS the water, too…


Coconut milk and possilbly coconut butter (never heard of coconut butter lol) would actually taste like coconut. I wonder if coconut water is highest in electrolytes of the 3. Will check out the link it see if there’s a way to salvage it. Thanks.


None of those even sound good lol. Also I need to consume a full serving (8oz. so that may be kind of hard if I were to cook w/ it. Not sure if the electrolytes would be damaged w/ heat either. I’m thinking 1 cup coconut water, 4TB lemon juice 1 cup of frozen unsweetened berries and 2tsp matcha… I have GOT to find a cheaper matcha since I go thru so much lol.


Mango juice is the classic coconut water additive. It actually doesn’t take much to cover the coconut taste. Pomagranate or acai juices are quite stong in flavor and more in line with the nutrition slant of your despairs. Some hemp milk tends to be strong enough too.

Ha, I love matcha coconut water! XD Sometimes I go on extra bike rides to justify a second glass. Maybe you have to Floridan/Hawai’ian?


I believe Coconut WATER does have the most electrolytes, I think!! :) LOTS Of other coconut products out there too! But I do believe the WATER is the highest…Have you heard of Ani Phyo? She’s a Raw Foods Cookbook Author…she does a lot with Coconut waters and milks!


Just the water has high levels of ptassium and magnesium. The milk only has 80-90 mg potassium. Water has about 950-1100 mg.


I’m not REAL big on mango, but a splash may work… or go w/ my idea above and use mango as the froze fruit. Raspberry-mango might be good. I’m not necessarily looking for a classic or ethnic pairing… just something to work lol. I know lemon and coconut is common, but I prefer lime so that’s what I used this morning. And it actully wasn’t bad

When the going gets tough, the tough drink tea.
What a awful week.
The mediation on Monday went awfully, then I went to the funeral of a friend, and got cornered and verbally attacked 3 different times by 3 different people over something I had nothing to do with, came home, wept bitterly and then had a 36 hour long migraine.
Today, I am feeling better.
Decide to treat myself with this tea, I make a ceremony with the preparation.
Hoping it will bring the tranquility and strength I need.
Only to have 2 wasps promptly sting me as I just get situated on the porch with this tea and my book.
I spill the whole glass and nearly break my cup.
I come in the house, sad and depressed over this whole dad blame week, but as I am grabbing ice for my stings I think “NO! Screw this!” grab a handful of ice and throw it in the blender, add milk and a large scoop of this matcha and a bit of agave syrup and ferociously blend.
Pour into a glass with a straw and AHHHHhhhhhhh!
Its like a large Malted Milk Shake. SO tasty and decadent.
So screw tradition, Hesper June is doing it her way!
Which I think is paying off, because a friend just called and said we are going to get our nails and hair done tomorrow, her treat.
So, here to the rest of the week being wonderful, even if I have to throw it in a blender and add ice!


Sometimes when meditation fails it helps to take something into a field and smash it with a sledge hammer.

Ha! Thanks Azzrian! I might have to try that;)


I’m so sorry to hear about your bad week. I hope things get better!

Hesper June

Thanks Amy:) I am determined to not let a couple of days ruin a whole week!


Awesome. I was thinking salvaging this week would require C-4. Who knew it could be turned around with a blender…. I wonder where ours is…


May the rest of the week be wonderful, indeed! I have found that funerals often bring out the worst in people…sorry you were in the line of fire.

Hesper June

KS, Blenders are awesome. I use mine to make my Healthy Breakfast Smoothie every morning, plus you can blend Matcha Ice Lattes and if all else fails they blend up Margaritas;)
Thanks Ashmanra, I am thinking you are right, it was just a highly emotional time and they needed a punching bag:)


Oh man, I’m sorry this week has teeth. I hope it’s better for you soon!

Wow. This is only the second time I have had unflavored matcha so this rating is a bit biased in direction of new experience but this stuff is amazing.
Matcha was very strong and vegetal and delicious and frankly just reached out and slapped me saying “I’m Matcha! I am flavor – don’t ruin me” to all of my previous flavored experience. Absolutely loved this stuff and want to share its deliciousness with everyone around me.
I’m no big fan of green teas either. This stuff is just delicious.

I’ve made this 2 or 3 times now. First matcha I’ve bought and made at home. I like it especially as a latte :) unfortunately because it takes a little bit of time/ effort to make, I only have it on occasion.

My first at-home matcha experience. I’m enjoying it with some soy milk and a pinch of sugar. My first bowl was a little bitter. I think that the water was too hot for the tea or my 1/2 teaspoon measure was off.
