My samples finally arrived late this afternoon and I sent my review. I am highly caffeinated. Is unflavored going to be an option for the mixes?

Finished my survey! It was hard to pick a favorite, they were all so good.

My survey will hopefully be in end of this week. I caught a cold and my sense of taste is off. Really sucks, especially being a tea blogger!

I just received my samples today – I thought I’d do the cold ones today and the hot ones tomorrow (so I’m not caffeine crazy).

For the cold drinks, is it necessary to use a blender, or is it ok to mix it with a spoon? I’ve never had matcha before, so I thought I’d check with those who’ve already done the samples.

I just put them in a water bottle and shook them up. It worked really well.

It does mix SO well using the shake method! Love it…

Great! I’ll give that a try!

I still didn’t get mine :(

Question on survey:

for size options, the 5oz and the 16oz – approximately how many servings is that for each size?

10 & 30

(This was my first time mixing matcha by the way – it was really good!)

Thank you. That looks very nice :-)

Hello! My matcha latte samples finally arrived today! Matcha smoothies for supper!!

I just finished doing the cold review, once I do the hot ones tomorrow I will send in my completed survey. I made notes so I wouldn’t forget my conclusions from today.

So far I like 3 and 4 the best because I find the matcha taste most noticeable there. (and the caramel too! Just more flavorful in general I guess) And if I didn’t want to taste the matcha I probably shouldn’t be drinking this in the first place :)

Yum all around though!

PS I used my magic bullet to mix and oh man! So thick and creamy and smooth and frothy and awesome!
Screw you, Starbucks!

Nice! I totally agree about 3/4 tasting like matcha…so good:).

I also use blender which gives this a very nice froth. Not sure about others, but I like my ice cream at the point that it’s already melting, so when I add a few extra ice cubes to my blender, I get nice thick shake consistency. My wife’s family came over this Easter and they all tried it and loved it, especially kids, (we told them it was ice cream, ha ha) They did not question this, and it had much less calories than shake, so parents were happy as well.

Thank you for the updates as well as suggestions.
From the comments we have received so far, it looks like some of you like more matcha flavor and some of you do not need it as much. What to do, what to do? :-)
We decided to make this product the most customizable of them all. Now you will be able to choose, in addition to strength of the flavor, strength/amount of Matcha in your mix. This way everyone will get what they want.
Someone has also mentioned an idea about single pre-measured packs that you could carry in your purse or package to work or anywhere, and maybe sell packages of different flavors for each single serve packet. – Great idea. As soon as the sales get to higher level, we can start working on it.
Thank you very much for all the help.
Also, here are some notes I got so far:

  • most of you like #3 or #4
  • most of you like the amount of flavor and matcha in the mix
  • The suggested price per serving ranges from $0.75 to $2.50 with average price $1.60
    The good news is that we’ll be keeping the basic price low – $0.99 per serving. For those that may think this price is still too high, consider this:
  • Our price is in the middle of the competition, which does not offer flavors, 100% natural ingredients, and any way for you to customize it.
  • Our mix contains a LOT of matcha comparing to our competition mixes and unfortunately this drives the cost up a bit. It would be easy to substitute this with some artificial ingredients to save money, but we rather go for quality.
    Also, there will be a new line of accessories done just for this new product. I’m so excited…(or maybe I just had too much of Matchaccino today :-)

Excited to see this for sale soon!

I agree, I loved both three and four. Six months ago I would have preferred three because I wasn’t used to matcha yet. Now number four wins by a hair, but both were great. The flavor was plenty for me, and I also shared it with my son and my best friend. They both enjoyed it, and my son has only just started drinking matcha lattes. His favorite is your almond flavored! Can’t wait to see the accessories! I am all about the doodads and paraphernalia! :)

If one day Matchaccino comes in premeasured packs, I’ll retire all the crystal lite packets in my purse!

got my survey in. Had my other half drink them with me today so i could get the opinion of someone who doesn’t drink lattes, matcha or even tea hahaha
