From Dessert by Deb

There are some desserts that are so classic and so beloved that they’re a no brainer when it comes to being hopelessly devoted to them. Key Lime Pie is one of them – who can resist the tart juicy bright flavour of lime and lime curd paired with swoops and swirls of whipped cream? Dessert by Deb introduces a twist on this cult favourite to the Japanese & Asian Patisserie by marrying matcha, lime, and coconut for a creamy dessert and pie inspired blend like no other!

Ingredients: Green Tea, Natural Lime Flavour, Lime Pieces & Peel, Toasted Coconut*, Canadian Maple*, Ceremonial Matcha*, White Cornflower Petals,

Handcrafted in Toronto, Canada.

Steeping instructions: 2 tea spoons at 200F for 5-6 mins enjoy as a latte/with milk!

This TTB is my first chance to try out Dessert by Deb teas, and so far I’m finding that I either really like them or I… don’t. But the ones I like, I like (and I have a few more enticing ones that Cameron B. sent me that I’ll be tasting after I send the TTB on, thank you!). This blend falls into the category of DBD teas that I really like.

When I brewed it up, the lime peels in the blend turned a bright kiwi green, which was visually really fun! The tea itself was a little cloudy from the matcha, but cleared up once the matcha settled. It smells exactly on point to the description, and the taste is almost exactly there too. There’s sweet-but-not-cloying lime and a touch of creaminess, though I suppose it could be creamier for the “pie” aspect. After trying it, I paired it with Cuban food – a salad with a lemony dressing and platanos with mojo – and that pairing worked really well. I brewed up a second steep with the leaves (about 8 minutes at 180f) and added oat milk. That gave it the creaminess I was looking for a little more of in the first steep and made for a really nice dessert drink. In fairness, it might be my own fault that it wasn’t so creamy – I ignored the directions to brew at 200f because it’s a green tea and I didn’t want to burn it, so I brewed at 175f instead. It’s entirely possible that if brewed at the recommended temperature, the creamy/pie notes would be stronger. Next time!

Preparation: Western with oatly
Tasting Note: I wanted to try this one as a latte as Deb notes her preferred brewing method for some of her teas. The first time around, I had it straight and I thought it was really nice like that.

So looking at the dry leaf of my current blend, the matcha looks a little dull (I may have waited on opening this bag a little long- about 4 months). The are slices of lime in the blend so that bodes well for the lime flavor. Coconut chips are large which I like.

Brewed as a latte. Matcha and sencha gives the tea a little grassy flavor. The lime is very much present as a flavor but I think that it is the lime flavoring that is giving it that sweet sort of taste as opposed to a pithy lime bitterness. The coconut feels a little lost this way as it competes with the oatly. I don’t know if I am getting key lime pie from this blend as there isn’t really a nutty pie crust element that I am getting with these flavors. I am definitely getting like a matcha key lime ice cream or yogurt though . I definitely prefer this tea brewed with out the oatly though.

This one reminded me more of some sort of lime Jello salad, the kind with Cool Whip added ha ha. Maybe toasted rice would’ve added that pastry element?

Yeah, the lime is definitely more of a jello lime. Oo, toasted rice would’ve helped get the pastry element.

A key lime pie genmaicha is sounding very interesting to me… :D

Truthfully I didn’t pay a ton of attention to this cup as I drank it because I was also playing a video game at the same time, but I remember thinking that I was yet again really impressed with another of Deb’s matcha dusted teas – they seem to catch me off guard each time I try them. In this case, it was the combination of the light and vegetal matcha with a very bright pop of lime. I liked the lime flavour a lot, though the overall cup was pretty light/mild. Is this the first time Deb has worked with lime!? I’m not sure.

Will have to try again with more attention given, and also think more about the “pie” aspect and if I feel like it’s been captured well in addition to just the taste of the lime…

I don’t usually care for Deb’s matcha green teas, but the lime really made this one for me.

Sipdown! (13 | 465)

I’m not generally the biggest fan of Deb’s matcha green teas, but I quite enjoyed this one. It has a fluffy lime marshmallow sort of flavor, it reminds me of those multicolored fruit-flavored mini marshmallows – the lime ones, of course. It’s a lime Jell-O sort of lime flavor with a nice creaminess to it.

Lime marshmallow tea! Not a flavor I can see myself craving though, so not a likely reorder for me. But fun to try!

I love lime teas, generally, but this one didn’t quite hit the spot. Maybe the matcha? I’m not entirely sure. Still did enjoy it, though, but not as much as I’ve enjoyed fluffy lime tea flavours in the past.

Today’s round in the tea tournament is this tea, Matcha Key Lime Pie vs Lemonberry Whip by 52 Teas aka Battle of the Citrus Dessert Teas. Check out the tasting note for Lemonberry Whip here: https://steepster.com/rachel12610/posts/423052

I purposely skipped over this battle yesterday so that this tea could do double duty and be both my tournament tea and my #MatchaMonday drink. And keeping on trend with my own Matcha Monday tradition, this got paired with this week’s read: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab. Check out the pic of that here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CUVZeBhLZSJ/?utm_medium=copy_link

This tea is nicer than I expected. Sometimes I get nervous with matcha blends but this is both dessert-like without being overly sweet. I get more lime in the scent than the flavor but its there. What took me by surprise is the pie crust element that seems to be coming through. I think it is from the coconut which is buttery and creamy and thus helping convey both the crust and the filling simultaneously. It’s quite nice actually.

Actually both this tea and Lemonberry Whip are quite evenly matched – sweet but not overly so. Still feel like you are enjoying dessert. Bright citrus notes in both. I find there is a slightly umami/grassiness from the matcha that isn’t really my preference and for that reason, Lemonberry Whip just pushed ahead. Both are good options though.
