Schweppes Matcha

As we have said before, the relaunch of Schweppes Premium range contains new references for its main botanicals and countries of their origin. Schweppes Matcha has Matcha tea as its main botanical, which comes from Japan. Kyoto, to be more precise. Attentive to the phenomenon which a long time ago implanted itself in countries such as Spain, unswerving England, and which in Portugal is already just as concrete, Schweppes created this new mixer which brings the world of tea to the cocktail. The novelty isn’t exactly in the use of tea or the infusions of it for use in cocktails, but in the availability of a ready to use product.
For us to better understand this new mixer from Schweppes we must first understand its main botanical ingredient. So, what is Matcha? It is a tea which, just like green, white or black tea is extracted from the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). All originating from the same plant, it is their treatment which gives each type of tea its distinctive qualities. Matcha is obtained from young leaves which are protected from the sun, to increase their levels of chlorophyll. They are then harvested and ground very slowly in a stone mill until they are powder.
All the essence of Matcha tea is captured in the new Schweppes mixer. Its vibrant green colour immediately jumps out, as does its markedly astringent flavour. The use of tea and quinine together makes for a more bitter and herby taste, even though balanced with a little sugar.
Only slightly noticeable on the nose, the more citrus side of this mixer finds new life in the mouth, mainly one mixed with some alcohol. The freshness of lime gains a new dimension and it is that which punctuates the palate, while maintaining the greener and rougher touch of the Matcha tea.

Schweppes – what’s new and what’s not

Schweppes took the opportunity of exhibiting at Lisbon Bar show to show their refreshed mixers range. The premium portfolio is now organized by the botanical or principal flavouring and by the country that inspired it in a total of 6 products, 2 of which are tonic waters.
Their latest model comes from Japan and is called Matcha, the powdered green tea that gives everything its aroma and bright green colour that is so characteristic of the tea. For now, we can tell you just that it is not a tonic water as it has no quinine in the list of ingredients. A complete review of this product will be with you soon.
From Jamaica and Thailand come, respectively, Ginger Ale and Ginger Beer, mixers that had already joined their premium range last year. The novelty is in the neck of the bottles which after being restyled show off the stand out botanical of each mixer. Now appear Ginger Ale and intense ginger that reinforces its fresh, lively character and Ginger Beer and Chilli to wake up the more distracted with a piquant edge.
From Hawaii comes the Hibiscus which was already in the premium portfolio. With a strong pink colour and a floral hint it can be surprisingly versatile as it can be used as a mixer and as a standalone drink.
The first tonic water in this range comes to us from Brazil with the aromatic touch of Pink Pepper. This tonic that we already knew stays in the portfolio of the premium mixes and promises to delight those who want a little extra bite to their tonic.
To the contrary of the Pink Pepper, the Ginger and Cardamom has left the premium range. For the lovers of this tonic that crossed the fresh heat of ginger with the exotic spiciness of cardamom, get to the supermarket fast!
Jacob Schweppe, the “father” of Schweppes, was born in Germany in the middle of the 18th century. It is to him that we owe a debt for one of the biggest inventions of that century, tonic water, which since then has always been connected to India. It is that connection that Schweppes make in the redesign of the bottle of Schweppes Original Premium. While the recipe remains the same, and it is important to point this out, the brand distinguishes the hint of lime that characterizes the Schweppes tonic water. This is a neutral tonic although lightly flavoured, like all existing tonics on the market, and not a deliberately flavoured tonic, such as the case of Schweppes Pink Pepper.
