Having this matcha tea is like finding wine in a sea of beer. I have had it plain, and as a latte and so far it’s become my favourite matcha. It comes across the palette very smoothly, not powdery, and with a hint of sweetness. Kind of like Ovaltine but with a lighter flavour. I can see either Vanilla or Cinnamon bringing the honey sweetness out as a dessert, or you can use it in a base mix for chai. Next, I think I will try making it into ice cream!

Finding it locally has been a pain however. With so many tea shops in Toronto you’d think that at least ONE would carry it! I ordered it online instead. It came in a silver packet, inside its aluminum tin, wrapped in a bubble wrap envelope. It was a bit of a pain getting every dot of rooibus out of the packaging and into its tin but worth it. :) The delivery time took about 3-4 Days from Florida to Toronto.

I’d say this as an expensive and rare drink it truly hits the spot for any occasion. Served hot, cold, or as a base for recipes. Very versatile, healthy and delicious!
