I had this one cold in a water bottle this morning, as a practice run for when I bring it to work.
When I first opened the ziplock I had the open package in, I was hit with a whiff of raspberry. I think this one just needed some time to cure a bit because It did not smell like this when I first opened it a few days ago.
Drank cold, there is a strong cinnamony and pastry type taste. You can taste the cream. There is a very slight raspberry taste. I think I almost like this one better cold, than I like it hot. I forgot to put a bit of sugar in it too, which I usually do. I think adding a bit of sugar will bring out more of the fruit sweetness.
On first smell of the dry matcha, I was a little concerned. It did not smell anything like raspberry. I thought there was quite a chemical smell to it. But I went ahead and brewed it anyway. From experience with Red Leafs flavoured matcha, I find the smell is not always indicative of the taste.
I got this was as robust flavour in classic grade.
I decided to make this one as a latte. I thought it would fit good with the raspberry and cream flavour. I used 1/2 tsp and a bit of sugar. I dissovled it in warm water. As soon as the water hit the matcha, I got a whiff of raspberry. Then I mixed it with about 6 oz of warm frothed milk.
The smell of the brewed matcha, is still not quite raspberry, but the taste can only be described as delicious. It does taste like creamy raspberry. It also seems like there is a nutty and cinnamony taste as well. Absolutely delicious.
I bought this to have cold at work. So I will need to do some experimenting to see how it will taste cold.

Oh no. This is not good. Not good at all. When I opened the bag the smell wasn’t too pleasant but I was hoping this would be one of those teas that has a strange aroma, but a good flavor. Not the case. This is just weird. And I really love lemongrass and lemongrass sodas. Shoot.
