Greetings Tea Friends.
Welcome to day 3 of my advent celebrations. Let’s see what today has in store…
Behind door number 3 is:
This magical blue matcha is infused with blue flower, to create a deep sea blue brew!
Ingredients: Blue pea flower, japanese matcha green tea, carob powder, natural flavouring.
A blue matcha? Well I suppose there has to be a first for everything!
Hmm…it looks pretty green to me, perhaps it goes blue once I add the water?
It also smells sort of chocolatey.
Steeping Parameters: Whisk one sachet with 100ml of 80C water. Top with hot water.
I will be using the mini Matcha whisk that came with the kit.
Holy moly…it went dark blue! From green to blue in the blink of an eye. It made a decent foam though with a beautiful shine.
It tastes like chocolate(along with the smell), it’s sweet but with a creamy undertone. The flavour isn’t strong but the delicacy of it is pleasant.
The after taste is sweet with some dryness and a quickly dissipated chocolate tone.
It was nice though very un-matcha like and I found that a little off putting. Sure it’s cool that it changes colour and I like chocolate (not a huge chocolate fan), but I love matcha for the grassy, seaweed flavours. If it’s going to be flavoured I feel it has to be done well, and this one just isn’t for me. Though I’m glad to have tried it.
What a journey I’ve been through already for the first 3 days. I wonder what tomorrow will bring?
