So I have a pound of this. I got sucked into the free shipping.

Coconut flavour, distinctive level of flavouring.

SO. GOOD. Yes, it’s sweet, but it’s not too sweet. A little sweeter than an unsweetened (ie: no syrup) green tea latte at Sbux, but some of that might be the coconut flavour, as I found the flavour quite sweet even in the plain matcha.

Distinctive is enough. Next time I might even just go for the base flavour level! This tastes like delicious coconut baked goods. Yum. This will be an excellent alternative to plain matcha in my morning smoothies, and it’ll be even smoother (I have a cheap blender) with the addition of 1/4 banana. OMG, this might be amazing with rum. And banana. And maybe a squeeze of lime. Uh oh!

I weighed 15g, as the scoop was quite compacted and I wanted to be sure I wasn’t using too much. 200ml soy milk, 4 large ice cubes. If I was making a shaken drink instead of a blended one, I’d use more milk or less powder.

nice! glad you’re enjoying them

OMGsrsly

Having a blender at home to easily make cold drinks makes me want ALL THE MATCHA! Pretty dangerous!

I have never tried matcha ( and am not drawn to trying it ….those green bubbles….tasty? …..I don’t know….) but I so want to find a good caramel tea……this one sounds……super dee-lish…….

lilysmom – if you like black tea try the caramel assam from butiki. you might find it to be your sweet spot. If you prefer green teas, try the caramel cream from purearoma.

Kittenna

A pound?!

OMGsrsly

Kittenna, yes. A pound. 16 oz. 30 servings. Muahahahaha. Considering I’ve had matcha every morning for the last two weeks, this will go pretty quickly…

Lilysmom, if you’re not drawn to matcha, I wouldn’t bother. Definitely save your pennies for a Butiki order. Just my portion of the group order is ~$100. Umm.

Don’t be alarmed, Kittenna! It is the kind with sugar already added, so it is only thirty servings! :)

I grabbed the caramel. I had some today but it was still a bit powdery – I guess I didn’t blend it enough, even though I still enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to trying it again tomorrow!

OMGsrsly

I blend quite a bit because I like to add a little banana, and ice, and my blender is super cheap. :)

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
