I’m not a fan of white chocolate even at the best of times, so my opinion about this chocolate bar is going to be very biased. That said: this flavour, to me, is best treated as an experiment.

The mix between the white chocolate and matcha is pretty good, as both are evident – or at least they were to me. My mother, who is not a tea drinker and has no experience with matcha, didn’t taste anything besides white chocolate because she didn’t know what to look for.

However, just because you can taste both doesn’t mean that they they taste well together. The sweetness of the white chocolate doesn’t complement the flavour of the matcha at all. The matcha has a salty taste to it, and even reminded me of roasted seaweed on the back of my tongue. The white chocolate is just sweet and bland. Together, they don’t work well at all.

So, bottom line: I tried it just to say I did, but didn’t like it. Blech.

Flavors: Seaweed

Updated March 2016:

I’m a writer and editor who’s fallen in love with loose-leaf tea. I’ve also set up a site for tea reviews at http://www.booksandtea.ca – an excellent excuse to keep on buying and trying new blends. There will always be more to discover!

In the meantime, since joining Steepster in January 2014, I’ve gotten a pretty good handle on my likes and dislikes

Likes: Raw/Sheng pu’erh, sobacha, fruit flavours, masala chais, jasmine, mint, citrus, ginger, Ceylons, Chinese blacks, rooibos.

Dislikes (or at least generally disinclined towards): Hibiscus, rosehip, chamomile, licorice, lavender, really vegetal green teas, shu/ripe pu’erh.

Things I generally decide on a case-by-case basis: Oolong, white teas.

Still need to do my research on: matcha

I rarely score teas anymore, but if I do, here’s the system I follow:

100-85: A winner!
84-70: Pretty good. This is a nice, everyday kind of tea.
69-60: Decent, but not up to snuff.
59-50: Not great. Better treated as an experiment.
49-0: I didn’t like this, and I’m going to avoid it in the future. Blech.
