Everyone seems to have one or two flavours of matcha that just don’t quite agree with their tongues and tastebuds. Sadly (super sadly!) this is that one for me! Happily, there are still some delicious aspects of this matcha, so here’s my fair review : )

Pina Coladas are my favourite tropical boozy drink! Okay I’ll also drink them without booze, but that kick of rum keeps me happy. Haha! I love the creamy texture of ice cold, slushy coconut milk with the tang and sweetness of fresh pineapple! A drizzle of grenadine and I’m taken to my happy place. To be fair, I haven’t had a pina colada quite like the ones in Cuba. That was my only hot resort holiday, so it has lots of good memories and good drinks.

I was hoping to recreate that deliciousness by making a slushy, creamy, matcha smoothie with this matcha! To be fair, that was the best result, after trying this hot and as an iced latte – slush was the way to go!

Hot, the matcha had too much of that chemical taste that seems to occur sometimes (hasn’t happened to me yet – first timer!). The flavour isn’t really meant to be hot, though, so I tried it iced next! Iced was a bit better, but there was something a bit off that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. It could be that too much flavouring was in my batch? That could be, as there is pineapple, coconut and rum flavour in this matcha – but who knows, it could be one flavouring altogether and I’m just crazy! I digress, the iced wasn’t quite working for me either. (An iced latte is definitely the way to go though, and next time I will try it with coconut milk! I even have some pineapples in the freezer I can pop in as well.)

My Pina Colada Matcha slush might have been better, but I used waaay too much matcha by accident, so it was a bit too strong in the flavouring department. I just crushed some ice with agave and milk to make the slush, so as the ice melted it did become more palatable. I really think the trick for this one is to make sure to use around 170 degree water (that tempers the bitterness) and use a little less matcha powder that you would usually. With other flavours, I could go crazy and dump 3 tablespoons into a cup and it was palatable (and energizing!), but less is more with this particular blend!

When I’m out of this tea, I think I will order some coconut and pineapple separately and do some blending of my own! I still have total faith in Red Leaf Tea – they hook me up with delicious matcha, and I can’t wait to try more flavours!

Matcha-Thon! Too bad it wasn’t all that great tho!

DaisyChubb

That’s okay, it just makes the other ones taste even better! lol

I’ve started just using room temp water for most of mine, no problems then!

DaisyChubb

Yeah, they dissolve very well in low temps, hey? Good call!

Yay! Thanks CK for swapping with me for this!

If you like matcha and pina colada you’ll very likely dig this. I thought it was great as an iced latte!

How did you prepare yours? I’m experimenting right now

Stephanie

Hmm, I think a cold latte with real milk- shaken with some sugar or honey, I forget which one- in a cocktail shaker with ice.

Another addition to my MATCHA MADNESS DAY!!! Pina Colada is next in line from my order of five different kinds. This matcha smells like Hawaii in tea form! I’ve only been there once and have missed it ever since. I’m sitting here in 60 degree weather drinking matcha that will take me to a warmer place.
My first impression of this matcha was heaven! I opened up the pouch, preparing it for the tin that will keep in the yummy goodness. The small size fits perfect in the tin with a little wiggle room…enough to be able to get the measuring spoon in. I could not wait to dig in to this matcha. If I had a piece of pineapple in the fridge I would have paired this matcha with it. I think that next time I will try preparing this iced and be sure to have some pineapple on hand!
I always make sure to warm up my bowl and chasen under a bit under water, sitting in the bowl. My matcha does not cool down as fast when warming the bowl. All items ready…bowl, chasen, matcha, water and my sifter! I didn’t forget it this time. I think I might need to get a matcha preparation bag so that all my tools are handy. I tend to get excited and forget a key item.
First I mixed 2 oz of water with 1 perfect teaspoon of matcha. Once that was properly mixed I added a teeny bit of sugar and 5 oz of water. I added a bit less water this time as I wanted the matcha to be thicker.
The smell of this matcha once mixed with water takes on different notes…almost a chemical smell. I did get notes of coconut and a touch of pineapple but it’s almost a fake smell now like an airfreshener. I’m surprised that the smell would change from the powdered form to when water was added. I purchased robust as I love intense flavor, maybe I went too strong on this one. The quality of the actual matcha is very good, I think it’s the flavoring that is throwing it off. I just ordered the starter/basic grade.
I’m just so sad that this flavor will not make my keep cupboard. My plan for the rest of Pina Colada is to mix it first as a latte, then try it over ice. I might try cold brewing it in the fridge, but I’m not sure you can do that with matcha. If all else fails, I will add it to my health food drink which is a vanilla base. I’m hoping that maybe it’ll be perfect one of these ways so I can add it to the keep cupboard!
Here is how I ordered my Pina Colada Matcha from Red Leaf Tea:
Size: Small
Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Flavor: Robust
Storage: Air tight refill flat pouch – would definitely recommend purchasing a tin for your matcha to keep it fresh. I did not order one this time since I already had a tin.

This one was from the wonderful Stephanie who stashed this in the Here’s Hoping Tea Box for me to steal:) this definitely smelled just like pina colada! The notes of it were there but the matcha over powered it. Will have to change up the ratios here. :) to be continued…
