My friend gave me almost 60 grams of this because she didn’t like it. She said it was too perfume-y for her, and what she was getting was a chemical taste from the flavoring. I tried it and didn’t care for it myself for the same reason, but we can always try to rescue tea, right?

I figured the robust flavor level was just too much for this particular flavor, so I mixed it half and half with plain matcha for a latte today. It was very, VERY much improved. I actually could do with still a little bit less of the flavored and a little more of the unflavored. I am going to mix up a glass for my friend next time I see her and offer to mix the white chocolate with my plain and split it if she likes it.

When I first started ordering from Red Leaf, I had never had matcha and ordered robust flavor level out of fear of the matcha. But now I love the taste of good matcha, and I love it unflavored, so when I do buy flavored from now on they will ALL be delicate to distinctive flavor level and I will upgrade the base because it really is very nice! I think this is a nice save of 60 grams of matcha!

Ah, it was worth a shot at least! I think I had this in robust and luckily didn’t find it too chemical, but I do find robust macadamia on the chemical side, so go figure.

I love my robust almond flavor, but I think next time I order it even that one will go down a notch in flavor level. Caramel is good even in robust, but the MATCHAccino one is distinctive I think, and that is plenty of flavor. It is really good.

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
