This is similar to the Unsweetened MatchaBooster that I reviewed a week or so ago, except that this is sweetened. You require more powder for the same amount of water of this product because of the sugar that’s in this. And really, I’d rather it not be sweetened, I prefer the unsweetened.
The sweetness is a little jarring, as I said in my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/11/01/product-review-sweetened-matchabooster-from-maeda-en/
I think it’s a little too sweet. What I did with subsequent uses is that I’d use one tablespoon of this powder and 1/2 teaspoon of the unsweetened powder in my 16.9 ounce water bottle and this made for a much more pleasant experience – it was still sweet but certainly not as sweet, and actually quite enjoyable.
And even with the sugar in this, it doesn’t completely mask the flavor of the Matcha, I am able to taste the buttery notes of the Matcha, light vegetal tones and hints of cacao.
This particular product would be perfect for a Frappe type of recipe – where you want a sweetened product but for on the go, I think you might be better off with the unsweetened.
