1046 Tasting Notes
I’ve been enjoying trying all of the new DT matchas. I made this one as an iced latte with oat milk (as I’ve been doing with most of the new flavored matchas), and it was really tasty. It reminded me very much of a fruity cereal milk. I enjoyed it, but it’s another one that I don’t absolutely have to have on hand.
I absolutely love kabocha, and I have a newfound love of hojicha. So, I was very excited to see this offering by Yunomi. I bought 2 20gram bags because it was almost sold out, and I thought I would love it. While I do enjoy it, there isn’t much of a pumpkin flavor. It’s a bit savory, but the flavor is very mild. Still quite enjoyable, just not what I was expecting.
I’m a sucker for creamsicle flavored things, and this tea did not disappoint. It’s very much a sophisticated version of the familiar flavor combination. The vanilla is aromatic and creamy, and the orange is zesty without being sharp. Not sure what flavor the jatoba wood adds, I tried doing some research and can’t find much about using it as a flavoring. I’d imagine this would be wonderful with some milk added.
Another unfortunate disappointment. I love mango, and had very high hopes for this blend. But, much like the pineapple black blend from the same company, this just doesn’t really taste like mango. The slightly mango flavor smells like it has gone off? There’s just something slightly stale about it.
