Thank you, Incendiare, for the awesome samples! I know you weren’t sold on this flavouring, but it made a delicious morning latte today. The royal grade is pretty fine, and I’m going to have a hard time not always opting for it now.. I’m not even going to try, actually. The matcha here mixes so smoothly!

I’ll admit that the macadamia nut flavouring is a tad abrasive. These guys taste like they’re loaded with salt, and leave that tingling aftertaste. They’re more the nuts you’d eat with beer and jerky than the kind you find flirting with desserts. The effect is strange in a latte, but not unpleasant. I still consumed this like I do all my other matcha lattes- waay too quickly. Always a good sign.

I can’t wait to try my matcha samples! I don’t have any milk though… I wonder if that’s enough to motivate me to go for a walk to get some. :D

Matcha is usually the deciding factor that gets me out the door when I’m out of milk.. :P

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Ingredients/flavours I tend to dislike or stay away from: apple, cocoa nibs, marine, peach, stevia, dairy products

Subjective Rating System 2.0:

90-100: My absolute favourite tea. Will impulsively buy and hoard like a dragon.

85-89: A favourite tea. May have quality flaws that I choose to ignore.

76-84: A lovely tea, maybe of high quality or masterful blending, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Enjoyable, but I may have few minor problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Quality, consistency, blending, or personal preference problems are apparent, but I wouldn’t pass up a cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab teas I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This is last year’s low-grade bancha mixed with rancid coconut, stale cocoa nibs, over-enthusiastic hibiscus, and stevia sweetener. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.
