Since I had such good luck with the Boysenberry matcha, I decided to try another fruit-y matcha. There are so many fruit flavors and I couldn’t pick one, so I went with this blend of tropical fruits called “Tropical Matcha”. I got the robust flavoring, as always, with just the basic matcha. When I first got a whiff of the matcha it smelled very fruity, almost candy sweet. Not sure what to expect.
Like before with my Boysenberry, I put 1/4 teaspoon in a water bottle a shook it up to give myself a nice fruity drink. The flavor is very light on this one. It tastes a lot like a fruit punch of some sort. It’s hard to specifically point out one type of fruit over another. If you’re a fan of punches, I’d definitely give this a try. Since I was having a hard time detecting the flavor, I added another 1/4 teaspoon. The flavor was a little stronger, but I didn’t really get that overly strong matcha taste, which is good. I bet tossing some sweetener in here would bring out the fruit taste even more.
While I don’t enjoy this quite as much as the Boysenberry, it’s another good chilled matcha that takes little prep work.
