Coconut Matcha from 3 Leaf Tea #VeganMoFo2016

I figured Coconut Matcha from 3 Leaf Tea was not only due for a review here at Sororitea Sisters but it would make a great tie-in for today’s Vegan MoFo Prompt which is “Late Night Snack”.  I maybe a little different than most but I really LOVE a good, flavored matcha in the evening or even late at night.  Although – I never think it’s a BAD time for a good matcha!

For a late night snack one evening I had some of this matcha and it was glorious!  Coconut Matcha from 3 Leaf Tea is SO very creamy, SO very sweet, and SO very tasty!  It’s the closest I have tasted to natural, shredded coconut in liquid form.  I’m pretty sure I haven’t tasted a coconut matcha that I like better than this one from 3 Leaf Tea.

Below you can see some drink ideas using Coconut Matcha from 3 Leaf Tea but I enjoy it straight-up with hot water.  Eventho I think this is great anytime of day I think this makes a great late night snack since it’s creamy, comforting, sweet, and dessert-like.

  1. Traditionally, a bamboo whisk, also called a chasen, is the preferred tool to whisk matcha. A chawan, or matcha bowl is also used. If those items are not available, a small metal whisk and a wide bowl or mug to accommodate room for whisking can be used.
  2. Water temperature is important for the matcha to maintain it’s sweet flavor and avoid turning bitter. Water temperatures below 170° F are recommended.
  3. Matcha is stored best in an airtight, light proof container. To maintain maximum freshness, store in refrigerator.
  4. Sifting matcha through a fine mesh strainer before use helps remove clumps and creates a smoother consistency.
