I tried this at the Lupicia store in San Jose. They prepared it with soybean milk.

More of a savory flavor, on the salty side. Made me think of green tea ice cream, but instead of creamy it was salty. Slightly bitter, too. Nice but I’m not sure I’d want to drink multiple cups of the stuff.

Ended up buying the strawberry matcha au lait instead.

Ok, I’ve been trying to find out… is this just a flavored matcha or is there powdered milk or something in it much like a chai latte mix? I wonder how this would do in a side by side taste comparison w/ 52teas Strawberry Matcha both made w/ water and milk…

It is just a flavored matcha. For the strawberry, the ingredients are ‘sugar, dried strawberry powder, powdered green tea’

Darn sugar! Why must they ruin a perfectly good flavored matcha by adding it? Based on this, I doubt I’ll get any of them. :(

Suzi

Well, the other flavor I bought was caramel so I’m sure there’s sugar in that :-p Based on the taste I’d wager there wasn’t any sugar in the sakura blend, so you could try that one at least!

Not much of a cherry fan… but yeah by definition caramel has sugar in it lol:)

Suzi

Ah, sweet sweet sugar :)
These are actually my first attempt with anything matcha. We’re in the middle of remodeling our kitchen so getting proper hot water is a pain. All my tea stuff got packed up so I’m relying on tea bags to get me through the day. So when I saw these in Lupicia’s newsletter I thought it was worth a shot, see how it goes.
