6 Tasting Notes
Like Got Matcha’s other flavored matcha blends, this one does not have a strong matcha taste. I still find it delicious, though. It has a really strong lemon and (especially) ginger taste. I’ve rated it slightly lower because you need more of it to make sure it has flavor. With the recommended measurements and the 50 percent off members discount, this one costs about $1/cup. Got Matcha’s regular matcha is about $0.33/cup.
This is one of my new favorites, actually. You really need to like Lavender, though, as that is the primary taste.
If the Lavender is too much, you can subdue it with other Teavana teas like Sweet Asian Pear (excellent iced!), or alter the floral flavor by adding Peachberry Jasmine Sutra.
I absolutely love this tea. It has a sort of oak-ey, nutty, honey flavor. It’s high in umami, and you can breathe in and taste it again after sipping it. It resteeps very well, with the second and third steeps being the sweetest and most savory. The fourth steep starts to get very light, but longer steep times do help.
