3 Tasting Notes
I love this tea! This is the best jasmine tea I’ve tried to date. First the smell soothes you, especially if you’ve had a stressful work day. I’ve been reading about the benefits of tea and wanted to try a white tea. My best friend suggested I try this tea and I’m in love. The jasmine is distinct but not overpowering and the white tea is a good choice when I want something light. It has a sweet flavor and I have no need to sweeten the tea. It’s very satisfying after a meal when I’m craving something sweet. It’s not going to replace my sweet tooth for chocolate or cheesecake but when I’m determined to skip my sweets this is a wonderful indulgence. Definitely worth buying and keeping on the favorites shelf :)
I started drinking tea for the health benefits and soon fell in love with many different types. I enjoy drinking lattes and curling up with a good book or movie. The Cheesecake Matcha smells and tastes wonderful plus gives me an extra boost of energy to clean house. Green tea matcha has twice the caffeine of regular green tea so I enjoy drinking hot/cold in the morning and daytime hours. I tried the hot latte in the morning and it was great, I will try it iced next time. I have a friend who tried it in a vanilla milkshake and of course loved it, so there are many different recipes and ways to enjoy the benefits of green tea. I’ve always enjoyed coffee; it was a pleasant surprise to find that I could enjoy tea lattes that tasted as good as the flavored coffee ones I’ve enjoyed from local coffee houses. The quality and flavor of the matcha, I felt was very good. I only added ¼ teaspoon of sugar to a cup of 2% milk that I frothed and the teaspoon of matcha that was added made the drink great. It was creamy with a nice dessert aftertaste. While I’m not interested in putting it on my cheesecake or other foods, I love the taste it gives my beverages hot or cold. Ok, an update, I’ve just tried a latte using vanilla almond milk and liked it better than using milk and didn’t need to add any sugar!
