Last fruity matcha, also as an iced latte.
To me personally, this was the matcha from the collection that best fit my expectations of it. It’s very much a mixed berry sort of flavour with notes of blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, and even this sort of acai kind of quality? That jumble of berry notes reminds me a lot of the mixed berry profile that Red Leaf Tea’s Richberry Pie matcha has! I really enjoy that part of the flavour.
For me, the thing that really doesn’t connect well is the ‘cream’ element. Quite often, I find myself thinking that whatever the company uses as its “cream flavouring” is really artificial and somewhat unpleasant tasting- and that weird “cream flavouring” is used in several different blends. It’s not as prominent here as I’ve seen with other teas, and the addition of milk to add some actual creaminess both in flavour and mouthfeel does help a lot. It’s kind of like a berry custard? Pretty solid overall, despite some slight cons.
Also, I think this may arguably be the sweetest of the new matchas for what that’s worth.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
