This is, I believe, the second to last matcha I recently picked up in the “buy five, get two free” package that I am splitting with a friend. We chose the following options:

Size: Small (30g)
Matcha Quality: Classic (Basic Grade)
Matcha Type: Regular
Flavor Level: Delicate

When I asked my friend what flavors appealed to her, she instantly named this one. I had actually already received a sample from the awesomely generous Sil and so I knew that I really liked this one and was more than happy to get more.

Now that I have tried the strawberries and cream matcha, I think I personally prefer that (although I think that is more a reflection of my extreme love of strawberry milkshakes and less a reflection of the matchas themselves) but this is still amazing! I mixed half a teaspoon with 8 oz. of milk and the result is creamy, fruity, and delicious. I would say when compared to strawberries and cream, this is less sweet and a touch fruitier, just as raspberries tend to be not as sweet as strawberries.

In my opinion, this is more reflective of berries and whip cream whereas strawberries and cream is more reminiscent of a tasty, tasty milkshake. Both amazing in their own right but I would certainly recommend this for someone who enjoys raspberries with the perfect touch of creaminess.

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.
