delicious. i’ve had this so many times that i never logged, and the few times i did i logged it under Starbucks green tea frap/matcha frap although i’ve never had it as a frap. for me, the powder is already so sweet and satiating it doesn’t need any syrup, let alone frappification! with soy milk, this tastes like some kind of vanilla marshmallow treat with the slightest touch of grass.
i know this isn’t straight matcha (and i have plenty of those in my cupboard! not to mention wonderful, unsweetened flavored matchas from Red Leaf) but there’s something about this scandalous confection that’s so good. can’t decide if the matcha powder Starbucks/Tazo (?) makes is giving off the marshmallowy flavor or if it comes from the kind of soy milk they use, but either way, with the correct number of scoops it’s perfectly sweet and is delicious consumed hot or cold.
there have been instances where i’ve been too full after dinner to even take a sip (tonight is one of those nights) so i’ll either refrigerate it or let it sit and cool on my night table and drink it first thing when i wake up.
