I love fruit teas, and this tea smells and tastes pretty good. It’s very strong, though. The berry taste becomes too intense if this tea is brewed for more than a few minutes.
to leave a comment.
I got hooked on this drink when I worked at Borders. It has a milky, matcha taste with not too much foam. It’s sweet enough on its own, but I have a super sweet tooth, so I usually add a little sugar. I love it hot or iced.
Anyone who knows me knows I’m a sugar fiend. The sweeter, the better, I usually say. But this drink is just nasty. I can’t detect anything remotely green tea-like in it!
I agree! Fake matcha is just nasty. And what the heck was up w/ the melon syrup they used to put in it- w/o telling us it was in there! Thank God that’s gone at least.
Yes! I’m really not a big fan of melon, so the addition of the melon syrup put me off this drink for life.
Don’t let that stop you from making your own matcha lattes/smoothies at home, you’re in the best place to do so!=D
I should, but I’m hesitant to buy non-bottled tea here since I can’t read the labels and I have no idea what I’m buying, lol!
For example, the first bag of tea you bought me from over there you thought was matcha, but it turned out to be sencha, which was still pretty awesome. :P

I love giraffes, reading on my Kindle, 80’s music, and learning taiko.
I’m a huge GLEEK!
