I find this tea interesting in that is has matcha powder. Presumably the matcha is mixed in with the tea in the tea bag. And presumably it dissovles while steeping.

The tea tastes like most other bagged mint green teas I have tried, with the addition of tart lime. The mint is subtle, with the lime flavour predominating. It does remind me of the flavour of a mojito. The tea is not bitter, but it is certainly not sweet like a real mojito.

I did not add any sweetener but next time I will. I think it would also make a refreshing iced tea.

I am unsure why there is the addition of matcha powder in the tea, but most likely for the health benefits. I do no think it adds much else to the tea.

This tea is ok, I think I prefer just plain mint green tea though.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
