1176 Tasting Notes
Sil, this is WEIRD! It’s coffee, but it’s green, and it’s matcha. My brain doesn’t know what to do!
I’ve made it as a warm latte. It’s pretty good, but the flavour isn’t quite right, nor is the colour. :) I think if I want a coffee, I’ll just have a coffee.
Thank you for sharing, but this isn’t a flavour I’ll be keeping on my list! :)
D for Distinctive, I believe.
This sample is from Sil! Thank you! :D It’s been sent all over, and now I have ALL THE MATCHA in my apartment. My apartment smells like raspberry candy, wow that raspberry flavour is strong.
I’ve made it as a soda, per Roswell Strange. 1/2 tsp matcha and a bit of sugar dissolved in warm water, then mixed with club soda. And some ice.
Surprisingly tasty! Wow. I’m not really getting mandarin from this (all I can smell is raspberry – my WHOLE APARTMENT smells like raspberry!), but it’s tasty all the same. Maybe when it’s had a chance to air out more than just a few hours. :)
I have the sads.
I got the special edition that was on sale a few weeks ago, but it smells like candy corn and tastes like butter. No caramel to be seen.
What is wrong? I remember the caramel being CARAMEL!!!!!!!
It’s still pretty tasty, but it isn’t what I was craving, really.
(3/4 tsp as a latte in almond milk)
Wow! Boozy hazelnut rooibos (kinda sorta) tea!
Like! Yes, I do like this one. Very hazelnut, but not an overpowering flavour unless you consider the booziness. That really surprises me, actually. The rooibos lends itself well to a base for this flavour, and isn’t hugely apparent.
I’ve never had frangelico before, so I have nothing to compare it to. But this is good!
For a hazelnut tea, I prefer Zen Tea’s Bossa Nova, but it’s caffeinated and this isn’t. So there is that.
Thanks for suggesting this one, VariaTEA!
An exceptionally pleased cat is purring on my lap, there is ridiculousness going on on Facebook, and I have alcoholic tea.
A touch of sugar, almond milk, and the last of the whiskey. Just what I needed. So good. I really like this tea. :)
I also got my matcha order today – the special Caramel, and the Cheesecake sample. I HAVE to try a cheesecake matcha soda tomorrow!
This is actually pretty good, but I think it will shine as a cold brew. :) I have a jar in the fridge just to try out.
I mean, I’ve had this tea for a year. I need to drink it. And it’s kinda sad I don’t reach for greens more, because I actually quite like this one. The only reason I’m drinking it now is because I had coffee when I got home from work, so I needed something with a bit less caffeine.
Also, look what I spent my April tea budget on! (I got a few more nail things too…)
It’s Model’s Own Sardonyx. Matte jelly blue-red glitter. I sandwiched it in LED-set gel, so the shiny bits will last all week, but now I’m wishing for a matte gel top coat.
