Jes was kind enough to send me some of her matcha, I ended up receiving this at the same time as the matcha that I ordered (which I feel I haven’t loved yet). Mixed this up this morning as a cold latte. I am exhausted after having caffeine too late in the evening, so here I am trying to cure myself with the same thing that failed me.

I do believe this was the starter grade and has the distinctive flavoring. It definetly smells like caramel. I put slightly more than 2 perfect teaspoons into my cocktail shaker, then added about 8oz of milk and shook. I then added some ice cubes and shook again. This yielded way more foam than with my first matcha experience.

I think I probably would have went with the robust flavouring. But this is definetly caramel. I literally feel like I am eating caramels. It’s sweet without anything added. It is so fabulous. I’m kinda sad I waited so long to try matcha, especially this one. Mmmm mmm mmmm

I pretty much ALWAYS get robust flavoring because I like that “in yo face” flavor. Sometimes I get the “Is there matcha in there?” level, but I can’t tell much of a difference. I do recommend getting the highest flavoring levels for the black, white, or red bases.

I love the “in yo face” flavours as well. When I order this I will definetly be going with the robust flavouring.

Yeah. Some people are matcha purists and don’t like it, but I recommend it, especially if you don’t plan to add any sweetener. I also find I can taste the flavors cold better than hot.
