While matcha lattes have started to catch on in the cafés of Canterbury and London, I don’t have any matcha of my own to try. At least, I didn’t until the Teapigs twitter account started giving away sample packs of this, so I opted in. After all, their matcha lattes (which, incidentially, I always order without the latte) seemed pretty good! Let’s give this a whirl!

And… uh… hm. Naturally, having tried a proper, tea-ceremony style matcha before my hopes for this were already quite high… But having used the 1/4 teaspoon amount of tea as recommended, the flavour is rather weak. There’s the slight dryness and some of the vegetal earthiness in the scent has made its way into the taste, but not by much.

I imagine this needs to have more matcha powder, or maybe it’s just tasteless…

UK student, a dabbler in all teas and coffees. Definitely epicurious.

Open to tea trades if there’s anything in my cupboard that grabs your fancy (or anything on my shopping list you might happen to have :) )
