I got the eggnog as a free sample along with another flavor a purchased (caramel), and I have to say, I was EXTREMELY disappointed in this tea.
I don’t know if it was a fluke sample, but I made it once on its own, using close to traditional prep methods, and it was horrible. The tea itself was very bitter and the sweetness of the eggnog flavor on top of that astringent taste was a bad combo.
I prepped it again, figuring I must have done something wrong since I’ve never had matcha that tasted this bad before but the second try wasn’t any better. Added milk and a little sugar for the “latte” effect and it didn’t help.
Thankfully the caramel flavored matcha was significantly better, so I am wondering if maybe I just got a bad sample. But the friends I made this for really disliked it, and they were surprised because I have made them good matcha before, so…
