I know that I’m not the only one struggling with how to take matcha with me when I travel, fortunately manufacturers have begun to take notice as well—there are quite a few who are offering single serve packets of matcha. At first glance these seem like a match made in heaven for anyone who travels, commutes, or wants to take matcha with them during the day so I decided it was time I finally gave a few different brands a try to see if these would solve my matcha woes. Up first: entireTea, a ceremonial-grade matcha sweetened with monk fruit.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with monk fruit, don’t worry, I wasn’t either—it seems to be a fairly new zero-calorie fruit-based sweetener. Not being familiar with it I was taken back by just how sweet it is and the fact that it has an aftertaste somewhat reminiscent of artificial sweeteners. You can tell immediately this drink wasn’t sweetened with cane sugar and it’s so sweet you can barely taste the matcha. Now depending on your tastes that could be considered a good or bad thing. If you’re having difficulty adjusting to the taste of matcha, this might be a good alternative to try, however if you’re a matcha purist or want a drink that is only slightly sweet, this isn’t the product for you.
