Sadly, this one I didn’t enjoy. I tried it both as a hot milk matcha latte and a cold matcha milk to no avail. The flavours upset my stomach. I’m not a huge fan of popcorn as it is, so perhaps that played a part. I’m not sure I could completely differentiate the flavours, but it struck me as more super sweet, borderline ‘burnt’ caramel/butter mix.

Thanks for the sample VariaTEA! Another matcha to leave for those who do love it in the future. :)

This is a sample sipdown too, the first one of the day eep.

VariaTEA

Oh no. I am sorry you didn’t enjoy it but at least now you know :)

Courtney

Exactly! If they were all winners, I would have a seriously problem haha. I appreciate the sample. :)

Stephanie

Now I dunno if I should try it or not. Dilemma!

VariaTEA

lol I definitely understand. Sometimes I am thankful when I don’t like a tea because it means spending less money

Courtney

You may love it Stephanie! Everyone else really seemed to, plus we don’t always have the same tea tastes.

That’s exactly it VariaTEA haha.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
