Just add to milk to this matcha au lait mixture. A lovely combination of sweet aroma of soybean powder and green tea.

Interesting.

I don’t drink many savory teas; I tend to like my tea sweet enough to rot your teeth out and fruity like Carmen Miranda’s head gear. But I made it a goal to try all of Lupicia’s matcha latte blends, and this is the fifth and final flavor.

It’s a nice blend. There’s a nice toasted element thanks to the soybeans, similar to genmaicha. Roasted soy beans and powdered green tea. It’s good mixed into hot water, but mixed with milk it’s even better. The creaminess of the milk makes roasted flavor even more prominent.

I really didn’t think I would care much for this blend, but it’s pretty nice. I’d buy it again.

Backlog from… Thursday? You know, sometimes I have brainfarts so massive I wonder how I even function. I was making it cold with some milk (that I bought specifically for the purpose). I also used my blender bottle (although that still stinks of protein).

Somehow I misread 2 tsp as 2tbs. I know right? So after putting two heaping tbs into 8 oz of milk and thinking ‘does this bag REALLY only hold 2-3 servings? LAME’, I reread the bag and caught my mistake. SHAME. To try to fix it I filled the bottle to the top (22oz!) with milk and skipped protein powder for the day. Soy protein counts a little? Maybe not. The proportions probably were not right, I was running late for work and didn’t bother looking up the conversion.

Even shaken up like crazy (until the milk foamed) the powder was not mixing well into the milk. It was also settling out of the liquid every time I let it sit for 10 min. The mix was a little grainy, and honestly I could taste the soybean, and was wishing for more of a matcha taste. I might add some of my own matcha next time to adjust the flavor.

I was wondering how this would go with water, but seeing how badly it did with milk… I don’t want to see the visual result of it settling out of the water mostly. At least I finished most of the bag in one go?

Well to start this review off, I have to say I didn’t follow the directions because “2 heaping tsps” for 8oz seemed like way too much, but tasting this now I probably could have gone with it. At least I know for next time. I did follow their directions of whisking the matcha into cold milk, and then microwaving it. Which felt odd, but it seemed to work well.

So it did come out a bit light with 1 heaping tsp, but I quite like it. I made it with plain unsweetened soy milk. It tastes quite a bit less vegetal and bitter than plain matcha, as expected. It’s just super creamy and rich with a bit of roasty nuttiness from the soybeans. There is sugar in the ingredients list (but not listed on their website) but it’s not very sweet at all. Even for someone who usually can’t stand sweetened tea. Totally a decadent treat, and I’m kicking myself for not getting the strawberry while I was at it.

I was kind of hoping I wouldn’t like flavored matcha this much, because I really don’t need anymore tea interests. But oh well, off I go to browse RedLeafTea’s site…

Thanks for the offer! Unfortunately I’m kind of swamped at present and would have trouble sending something back in return, so I can’t really ask for stuff in good conscience. Maybe some other time!
