This is my first real dessert type flavoured matcha. I have been sticking to mostly the single fruit flavours or the flavours like French vanilla, etc. So this is my first “complicated” matcha, being of more than one flavour.
The dry tea smells nutty. Like nutty peanut butter. There is definitely a pastry smell to the dry matcha. I made this cold shaken in a water bottle. 1tsp for 8 oz cold water. At first I could taste chocolate notes. Not quite milk chocolate, maybe a bit of dark chocolate but still sweet. Almost like dark chocolate chips. Then I could taste the nuttiness. It is definitely peanut but I would not say it was peanut butter. It was missing that smooth butter part. The liquor, even though it was cold shaken, felt thick. There seemed to be a bit of a spice taste, maybe nutmeg or something. I added a bit of white sugar to sweeten it up a bit, but it was actually quite sweet on its own. I would compare this one to a peanut butter cup, more than a peanut butter pie. I think this one would be delicious as a latte as well.
This one was robust flavour, basic grade.
