My first Matcha and I am soooo pleased. When I saw these flavored matchas, I just could not turn these down. I have been leery to try Matcha-and I was thinking flavored would be a good way to warm me up to the idea. At the same time, I have been sooo curious as Cofftea is always raving about matcha, etc….

I took 1 tsp and frothed it in a splash of water. Then added about 1 cup of cold milk. Tinge of honey. The banana flavor was quite strong and natural- so next time, I will omit the sweetener. No odd vegetative or grassy or fishy flavor was noted.

This was really good. As it is difficult or near impossible to find flavored matchas, I may be placing an order SOON!

lol you were expecting fishy? As much as this one scares me, this shall be the next one I try tomorrow in honor of your 1st matcha:) These do froth oh so nice- it kinda distracts me from the fact that this isn’t green.

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
