Thank you Dexter3657 for sending me this tasty matcha! When I took my first sip is was mostly chocolate but I quickly started getting more coffee/mocha notes around the end. As I continue to drink I realized what this reminded me of…a Starbucks Chocolate Chip Frappecino (Frappacino?). Don’t hold me to that because it has been at least 1/2 a decade since I had one but honestly that is what I am tasting. Thanks again, Dex!

Damn, that does sound better than I imagined.

Right? I’m picturing it as a latte…

Dexter

Glad you like it. :))

Very much so. Thank you Dexter!

Also, I am not a coffee/mocha expert so don’t rely too strongly on this tasting note. However, to me, that is what it tasted like.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
