I had a hard time deciding between this one and the mandarin matcha. I ended up getting this one to try first, I am sure I will try the mandarin in the future. I got classic grade, robust flavour.

On first smell, it smells EXACTLY like chewable vitamin c. Mmmm. To be honest, that was my favorite candy as a child. Ha ha. It is not the super tart kind, but the slightly tart and sweet kind of vitamin c. Very similar to orange flavoured Emergen-C.

I started by using 1tsp in about 8 oz water, cold shaken. It tasted very similar to the vitamin c type flavour. But it was missing something. I was at work and added about half a packet of Splenda. That helped to make it taste more like a classic orange flavoured drink, think orange pop or C plus. But I really don’t like the taste of Splenda so that was throwing me off a bit.

I think I have to experiment with this one a bit. I am going to try a bit less matcha and play around with sweetener. I also got this one to mix with my cola matcha and cheesecake matcha. Looking forward to the results.

I agree, chewable vitamin C has its merits and all, but that must be weird experiencing that flavour in a matcha.

I got the robust flavour so I am finding I hardly taste the matcha at all. There is a very slight matcha flavour, but it more just makes it smooth and a bit thick tasting.

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.
