I think I made this one correctly, and if so that would be a first for me. I added a little bit of hot water to stir up the matcha with and then filled the rest of the mug with hot milk. It isn’t frothed because I don’t have the capability at work, but it is mixed pretty well. This one mixed much better than the other samples I have tried.

On to the matcha. I first tried this one unsweetened and while it is good and I could definitely drink it, I don’t pick up all that much chocolate flavour. Perhaps it’s just my tastebuds because really, I do sweeten everything that is sweeten-able. The black matcha is quite tasty, a deep and rich flavour that I wasn’t expecting. It isn’t bitter at all, even without sweetener.

With sweetener (and this is with robust flavouring) and the flavouring starts jumping out. Yum, chocolate. It’s not quite smooth on the tongue, there is a touch of something I’m not sure I can identify as coming from either the base or the flavouring that is sharp and slightly tingly, but it’s not so much that I can’t enjoy this matcha. This is not my favourite matcha so far, but as the first example of a black matcha I’ve tried, this is pretty nice.

Bio

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
