This calendar is being explored very quickly, I can’t believe it’s day 4 already!

Opening flap number 4 revealed a tiny metal pot with the contents of my next tea.

Day 4 – Pure Grade Matcha 

I haven’t actually tried any Matcha from Bluebird Tea so I am excited to finally cross that box. I also like the little tin, I plan on re-using it to make a Matcha lipgloss for it in the near future. I may even do a tutorial for it.

Bluebird describe this tea as “Highest quality Japanese matcha powder shaded two weeks prior to harvest. “

The Matcha is a beautiful bright green colour and quite fine in powder. It produced a beautiful foam.

Flavour is light and smooth with sweet grass and soft vegetal notes that linger in the after taste. This is very easy to drink, it slips down with ease. Perhaps one of the smoothest Matcha I have tried, though I found it perhaps too easy for my every day needs. A little more flavour would have been preferential for me but still it was a nice Matcha. Also a note to say the foam was great, the last few Matcha samples I had from other companies didn’t whisk too well but this foamed beautifully.

Given that it was a higher quality than I expected I may try a few others from them. They do a few flavours that sound interesting.

A nice Matcha delight lived in door number 4, A break from the usual teabag bore, I wonder what is being kept alive, hiding in tomorrow’s door number 5? We shall have to wait and see! Join me tomorrow to find out.

Happy Steeping!
