Not much powder is needed per cup to get a full taste. I really enjoyed this tea and although it is quite grassy, it tastes healthy. It was just sweet enough for me.

This all-natural blend of stone-ground matcha and pure coconut nectar is the easiest, most convenient way to make your favourite green tea drinks. It’s already sweetened, so all you need to do is decide what you want to make. You can blend it with milk and ice for an amazing smoothie, froth it with milk for a latte, or add a spoonful to your next milkshake for a real treat. Looks like you’ve got some seriously tasty experimenting to do.

This is my first time trying matcha, a severely ground up green tea that is FULL of antioxidants and gives you enough energy to keep you through the day. I know some people put it in pancakes, ice cream, cookies, oatmeal, etc other than drinking it on its own or in a latte.
It does have a grassy smell right off, but it wasn’t too bad. The taste didn’t really come out for me until it was brewed. I didn’t have it straight like I usually do, but I decided to have it as a latte and the creaminess and the slight vanilla taste appealed to me into maybe buying some more.
It is a bit tricky to mix it up if you’re not used to it, but I didn’t have a whisk and used my milk frother. I am thinking of getting the Matcha Maker from DT if I do decide to get more since it seems easier to shake it up than whisking it IMO.
Not sure if I’ll try the straight Matchas, but I think starting with this little bag of the Vanilla was a good choice.
I just wish caffeine did something for me, I felt no extra ‘buzz’ during the day and I can usually have a pop or a black tea before bed and sleep just fine, but that shouldn’t impact on anyone’s choice for wanting to try matcha.
I would recommend this little green tea and recommend the Vanilla flavour as a great starter. 4 out of 5 scoops!
Finally decided to try this matcha. I’ve been on a matcha obsession lately. So today I’m starting my day with hot vanilla matcha latte! Surprisingly its not that sweet. I did notice it has none of that ‘cane sugar’ in it, so thats always good. It’s got a hint of vanilla, but also a creamy and grassy note to it. I don’t mind it at all. I’m also glad I don’t taste the coconut nectar in it. Overall I like this matcha. It’s a nice one to enjoy hot!

I found that the tea was difficult to sift properly as something, possibly the coconut nectar, made it clump up into tiny pebbles. I made sure to whisk the tea extra thoroughly which seems to have done the trick to dissolve the clumps at least. The colour of this matcha is sort of a dull, dark, muddy green – I’m not super familiar with how matcha is graded but I think I recall that it’s an indicator of a lower-quality matcha. The flavour is a bit disappointing, as it’s largely the sweet coconut nectar and the vanilla flavouring the come across, with the matcha serving as a vegetal background. The tea is just on the near side of being too sweet, though I’m glad that they at least used a natural sweetener, rather than something like stevia.
I honestly wasn’t expecting too much from a matcha from Davids Tea and this tea neither exceeded nor disappointed those expectations. I might try this as a latte or perhaps in a smoothie, but I wouldn’t recommend it as a straight matcha. I get the impression that this is intended to be a sort of a matcha-for-newbies who might otherwise be put off by the grassy, bitter flavours.
Hot with a smidge of milk.
Another co-worker recommendation – it’s been AGES since I last had this one; I like most of our matcha quite a bit but the two with coconut sugar in them have always tasted pretty bleh to me. Sure enough, drinking this I taste FAR MORE coconut than I actually taste vanilla. I’d love to see an updated version of this tea that ditches the coconut sugar…
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
This is my favorite matcha from David’s Tea (without trying their two highest priced matcha). It reminds me of drinking the milk from a cereal bowl, but better. Because of the coconut sweetener, it can’t really go straight into a cold latte – the sugar doesn’t dissolve well in cold milk.
Let me begin by saying that I just love tea right now and I especially love trying new teas with no preconceived notions just willing and open to the possibilities of having a good tea. I find some tea enthusiasts who preach that one should never have bagged tea or stay away from flavored tea, you should never add sweetener or milk and you know what I say to that? No Thank You! Drink your tea how you like it, isn’t that the point! To enjoy it and grow and be on the journey? I am sure over time your tastes will change and that is the whole idea.
Now that I have said my little piece I really enjoyed this so much that I bought 76 grams of it along with the Grand Cru Matcha witch is just beautiful and I bought 75 grams of that. I am stocked for Easter with Matcha. Please enjoy some tea however you like it.
