Thanks to the wonderful Sil for providing me with a generous sample of this! This one’s distinctive, which I’m quite pleased about since up until now, I’ve always ordered my flavoured matchas in nothing weaker than robust. The matcha itself doesn’t have that much coffee scent, maybe a little of that quintessential bitterness you get from the beans. I prepared this hot with some half and half and brown sugar. Smoothed out the matcha and brought out the coffee a bit. You have to wait to get it in the aftertaste, however.
I’m going to withhold rating for the time being. Try it cold first!
