The matcha has a slightly darker color due to the acai powder. What I like about this tea is that there are no flavorings, sugars or odd additives. The acai powder is pure, ground acai berries. This tea has more of a matcha taste than an acai taste. There is only just a hint of acai. It’s not sweet and the acai doesn’t make the matcha taste bitter. This is a great way to have matcha, but with additional health benefits from the added acai powder. If you’re looking for something sweet or fruity tasting, this isn’t the tea for you. However, if you love matcha and the taste of pure matcha. you will love this tea.
