Inspired by VariaTea and her desiring some of this, I opened up the package (just received this morning!) to try it out.

Opening the bag was a pleasant experience. I smelled mostly cream, with a hint of something chocolatey and cripsy, if you can smell crispy. Mixed it up in some coconut milk with the FREE wooden matcha spoon included in this order (thank you!), and started sipping away.
The first thing I taste is the cream, and then a very much oreo-like chocolate cookie. I haven’t had an actual oreo in many years due to grain intolerances, so I can only go on memory – and it actually feels like I’ve eaten an oreo cookie.
There is something that tastes a bit off to me though, and I can’t quite place it. Maybe a chemical-ness to the vanilla/cream? It may however be my coconut milk (the kids have a tendency to leave it out on the counter), so I’ll leave it at that.
A tasty treat, and one I’ll definitely have more of.
