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.

That is so good to know. I’ve been eyeing this one since I love passionfruit but had a feeling it wouldn’t be that accurate.

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.
