Backlog: I was going through some of the samples that Whiteantlers gave me a few years ago, and I took a break from the usual oolong for an actual green tea. I was kinda surprised this tea was flavored because it just smelled like a really fresh green sencha when I opened the bag.
I used my whisk and bowl, and when I tried the tea-I was caught off guard by the citrus sweetness. It reminded me of emergency a little bit, but it was sweeter and lighter. It was a hot summer day, and the orange was welcomed. It reminded me of some Japanese Sherbert Ice Cream I used to have in Hawaii, and there was a little bit of a sugar crystal texture in the lightly grassy green matcha. I was very happy with it and finished it quick.
Flavors: Citrus, Creamy, Grass, Orange, Sugar
I grabbed this sample with the Japanese Orange matcha sample I tried from the same company. They claim to add sugarcane and sugar syrup to their soil to enhance the natural sweetness of the tea. Not sure if I buy that, but it was a perfectly decent bowl of matcha. Very smooth flavor, nicely grassy with only mild bitterness.
I found out about this company through a tea blogger I follow, and saw that they offered matcha samples for $2.99 with free shipping. I grabbed this one and their plan matcha. This was really pleasant! It has a tangerine like flavor, sweet and present, but not cloying or overwhelming. I added a bit of honey and it was an excellent bowl of matcha.
