To me, this one doesn’t taste a whole lot like passion fruit. I am not sure what it tastes like. It isn’t bad or anything, I just can’t quite put my finger on it. I did chose to get distinctive flavour instead of robust becuase I had a few issues with the fruity flavours in robust tasting chemical, so this could be the problem. I also did not add any sweetener because I wanted to try it plain first, as is my usual with trying flavoured matcha.
The dry matcha has a slight hint of passion fruit. More tart than sweet. The taste is a sweet, fruit flavour. I don’t want to say it is generic fruit because it isn’t, but it is familiar. Maybe just tropical tasting. Or maybe a bit more like guava, not sure. There is a slight hint of a waxy flavour.
In other news, I am finding this matcha, as well as the last flavour I tried, is quite lumpy. It lumps quickly even after sifting. And it does not dissolve very well at all. I used the same basic grade matcha as I always get. So I am not sure if it the flavouring or the matcha.
I made this cold shaken, 8 oz water. I will try adding some sweetener for tomorrow and see if I can squeeze out a bit of passion.
