2 Tasting Notes
I found this tea lacking in any discernible lime/mojito flavor. All I could taste was mint. Which is a real shame, because I was hoping for something very refreshing and limey.
After reading the reviews for this I was absolutely excited to step into the world of Matchas. Even better, maple syrup is my favorite flavor of just about anything. They make maple syrup matcha! What what what!! Being that I am an absolute newbie to the Matcha world, I followed the directions for making a ice brew. I crowned the 2 oz’s of water with 8 oz of vanilla almond milk with a touch of heavy cream. (I can’t drink regular milk) I found it oddly vegetal. Not quite what I expected when past reviews have talked about how amazingly sweet it is. I barely tasted the maple syrup? It might be my taste buds are not used to it, or maybe I prepared it incorrectly. Not sure. I ended up tossing in 1 tbs of maple syrup for good measure and that made all the difference in the world. It really brought all the flavors together. I think I am going to keep on trying the flavored Matchas and see if I can become a pro at preparing them.
