I haven’t had a lot of boysenberries or boysenberry flavoured things (I think I might have had some jam blend at some point) so I can’t tell you if this is true to taste, but it is certainly tast_y_ and definitely of the berry family.
This review is for the classic matcha base and robust level of flavouring. After my last mega-batch of matchas were done at distinctive and I had been disappointed in some of them, I decided to up to power level on this next batch (and the one after it, which is already being shipped to me, heh).
This is a good flavoured matcha, but it doesn’t really knock my socks off. I’m rather picky about my berries and if this is what a true boysenberry tastes like, I’m pretty sure it’s one I wouldn’t seek out very often. I remember liking the jam though. Hard not to like jam.
According to wiki, a boysenberry is a cross between a European raspberry (not sure how that differs from a North American one), a common blackberry (yum, almost a weed up here in the Pacific Northwest), and a Loganberry (which I’m also not that familiar with). A loganberry is apparently a hybrid of a different type of blackberry and the same type of raspberry (European). So now we know. I think I like both raspberries and blackberries better separately.
