It’s hard for me to know how much matcha to use when it has sugar and other ingredients bulking up the powder. It seems that whatever was left in the sample sized bag I got was the perfect amount. I added some creamer (which is slightly sweetened) and got a very pleasant cup. I get matcha at the start of the sip with a little grass and berries more in the aftertaste. Hard to tell about the cream part after adding my own cream, but the overall taste is indeed creamy. I like this one and can see it making a really good summer drink served over ice. I would consider buying it again.
