328 Tasting Notes
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!
Hmm….the pellets look like rabbit pellets. The blend contains licorice. But the licorice is not noticeable AT ALL. This is a mild oolong. Others have said it is woodsy. And it is. There is a vegetative aroma this tea. Smooth. Not bitter.BUT-not sure if I like this one personally. The woodsy flavor is sooo subtle….I just like my teas w/more flavors… So, I am thinking it is MEH…
This is a great iced tea w/straightforward flavors- a solid, not astringent tea base and lemon grass. As others have said, the lemon grass flavor is strong. But with a little bit of sugar to cut the pungency of the lemon grass, this is wonderful. As the lemongrass is strong, it masks the yunnan-flavors of the tea base. But on the other hand, if a cheaper tea base were used, perhaps, this blend would not be as pleasant.
In fact, this one holds up to multiple infusions.
