104 Tasting Notes
I was really excited to try this when I ordered their deal from Groupon. I was pretty disappointed. I don’t really taste the matcha, as the a ‘hint’ of spices overpowers the entire blend. It could REALLY do without the spices. The spices ruined it for me. Otherwise, it tastes alright before those spices kick in.
First I must say since they switched to the mesh whole leaf bags this tea has improved a lot. I enjoy the vegetal, even a little bit woody taste. I like the slightly bitter after taste. If you are getting this at Starbucks, be mindful of the steep time or this tea can get NASTY. I usually order it in a grande because the size of the teabag in a tall tends to make the tea taste oversteeped.
