Thank you Cameron B. for sharing this one with me! I just finished steeping it up so that I could sip on it while working on tasting notes, and I feel as though I’ve made an ill advised decision on what tea to drink. For a moment, however, it seemed like it was going to be okay: I opened up the portioned single serve of matcha and caught a whiff of sweet pineapple that smelled really good.
However I then proceeded to pour the water over the matcha and what I’m sure was a face of delight probably quickly turned into a scowl. This has the same nauseously sweet and cloying taste as all of the other matchas from Yum Matcha – just with a distinctly tropical pineapple note to the finish. We’ll see how I feel by the end of the mug, but I have to say that while this certainly doesn’t taste good it also is the most palatable of the flavours I’ve tried so far and has the strongest/most distinct fruit flavour. It’s pretty apparent that this is pineapple.
So props, small as they may be, where props are due.
