Matcha Advent 2018

Day 18 – Bird&Blend Matcha Advent


Hi Tea Friends!

My advent calendar is looking sparse now with most of the goodies already revealed.

What is for day 18?



Swampthing Matcha

Swampy super-greens + spirulina with a twist of lime + lavender.

Ingredients: Japanese matcha green tea, spirulina, nettle, natural lime & pear flavouring granules, lavender.


This smells subtle but green tea like. Sweet grass with a hint of toasted flowers.

Steeping Parameters: Whisk two scoops with 100ml of 80C water. Top with hot water.

I will be using the mini Matcha whisk that came with the kit.




No foam really to speak of but it smells very sweet and limey. Like a posh cordial.

The flavour is mild but pleasant. Smooth grass with sweet like and sour lavender that’s perhaps a little soapy but not too bad, and a very sweet after taste that lingers. It’s an interesting combination and I find it odd in a delightful way.

I’ve been sipping wondering what it reminds me of, I think it’s the hard boiled lime sweets you can get. It’s that sort of lime flavour.

This was tastier than I expected.

Join me tomorrow for another quick Matcha review.

Happy Steeping!
