Taster’s Review:

Like the Ginger Pear (Regroup) Minteas that I tasted and reviewed previously, I’m liking these Matcha Chai Minteas.  They remind me a bit of a cinnamon mint with an invigorating burst of cinnamon flavor that is somewhat reminiscent of “Big Red” chewing gum (do they still even make that?  I can’t recall seeing it for a long time … but then, I haven’t really been looking.)

Unless I’m really focusing on the flavors, I don’t discern much of a Matcha flavor or a white tea flavor in these, nor do I notice many other chai-like flavors other than a strong, spicy cinnamon note.  The flavors are there, they are just less noticeable than the cinnamon.  The other flavors become much more apparent after I’ve allowed the Mintea to dissolve for a few minutes on my tongue, and then bite into the undissolved portion.  Then I can really notice more of the chai flavors as well as the Matcha.  Yum!

However, what I’m enjoying most about these is not only the flavors but also the texture of them (they remind me of my gramma’s Certs that she used to keep in her purse whenever the grandkids wanted some “candy”).  They have a strong, slick surface that once dissolved slightly feels a little less slick, but still very fine and a bit like granular powder.  Once I bite into one, it becomes a smooth, powdery candy-like texture (but not a sugary texture).  And despite the candy-like texture of these, I like that they don’t taste too sweet.  There is a mild sweetness to them which keeps them palatable, but it never becomes cloying or sickly sweet.

As for the fitness/slimming aspect, I think I would need to have more of these on a regular basis before I actually noticed “Results.”  However, these are tasty enough that I certainly wouldn’t mind keeping these on hand and enjoying them on a regular basis… whenever I need something tasty to help freshen the breath and cleanse the palate.  Plus the tin is pretty cute too.

Tasters Review:

Today I am writing about Black Cherry Cream from Green Tea HP/Green Tea Pros which is a product that includes Green Tea as its base.  Here at SororiTEA Sisters we have reviewed a few of these already and have more on tap!

Before adding this powder-pocket to my bottled water I thought it smelled like Chocolate Covered Cherries…which is perfect timing because almost every year I get my mom Chocolate Covered Cherries for the holidays!  She just LOVES them!  This was a great reminder as well as a healthy alternative for a sweet tooth, too!

Afterward I added it to the water it was basically a sugary smelling Black Cherry type aroma.

The taste is a little tart but that makes sense considering it’s Black Cherry Flavored…it DOES taste like Black Cherry! As for the cream connection…I guess I can also make that out a little…it is sort of reminiscent of black cherry ice cream.

Where as this specific flavor isn’t my favorite from Green Tea Pros it’s still pretty good and I am VERY excited I got to try it!

Stay tuned for more Product Reviews from The SororiTEA Sisters!
