Taster’s Review:

I have had this Matcha for a while now, and it has been my go-to Matcha when I want a smoothie.  I love the hint of lychee that it adds to my smoothies!

But this Matcha isn’t only good for smoothies… it’s really quite delicious on its own, whisked in a chawan just like a typical Matcha.  The flavor is sweet and the lychee fruit adds a wonderful dimension of flavor to it.  The Matcha is vegetative and smooth.  It coats the palate with a creamy, sweet taste of fruit and grassy taste.  Delicious!

Matcha can be somewhat of an acquired taste and for those of you who want to acquire a taste for it, I recommend starting with a flavored Matcha.  The vegetative flavor is not quite as intense with flavored Matcha, and it will help ease you into the experience.

Once you do acquire a taste for it, though, I guarantee you will not want to turn back.  Matcha is better for you than other tea types because you consume the whole leaf.  But, honestly, I don’t drink Matcha for the health benefits – they are a bonus!  I drink it because I love the taste!  It’s really delicious!
