I had a treat receipt from ordering coffee this morning, and this has been something I’ve been trying to get the courage up to try. So I ordered it to drink on the way home from work as a treat. Unfortunately the tea flavor/matcha in this is the epitome of exactly what I don’t like in a green tea. I can’t get past the fresh hay flavor that this tea brings out. Leads me to think I really will not enjoy matcha, as this flavor/smell is something I just can’t do. Even the amount of sugar and whipped cream didn’t make it do able for me. My husband slurped it all up pretty quickly though :)

I can do matcha (LOVE it), but I don’t like it mixed w/ dairy. Although… I think it would be amazing as a blended iced green tea latte (half milk, half ice) w/ mocha and peppermint syrups so it’s kinda like a frozen matcha peppermint hot chocolate. Maybe Strawberry puree too? One thing is for sure, I don’t do classic syrup in anything.

This tastes like consumerism crap that just happens not to be my cup of tea – too much sugar mixed with the matcha they use. Very dry tasting, I thought.

AMEN STEPHEN! I don’t like dairy + matcha (unless it’s matcha drinking chocolate), but if you do, why can’t we get PURE matcha lattes? It bugs me when people automatically assume we want things sweetened (they do that w/ all their tea lattes- but not espresso ones oddly).

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
