Another advent sampler (only three more left!) which I put into a breakfast smoothie. Full tablespoon sample whisked in plain cold oat milk and sampled prior to adding strawberries and yogurt to the smoothie.
Like their other fruit matchas, I found the sweetness in this slightly distracting. I could tell it was mango, though something about it was reading very stonefruit (apricot/peach) to me. Like, a tropical version of a peach? Ya. (Wait, do mangos just taste like tropical peaches to me? silent O mouth ) I wasn’t able to taste the actual matcha under the flavoring this time around, either.
It was fine, but I don’t think I’d rank it as a favorite amongst the fruity flavors. Much like the Peach Matcha, I actually liked it better in smoothie form, since the real fruit adds that missing tart element and toning down some of the candy-like qualities; it tasted very nice against the blended strawberries, where I could taste both flavors quite distinctly and they complimented each other nicely in the smoothie.
