This was one of the online exclusives I couldn’t resist picking up… the ratings aren’t amazing, and I’m 99% sure I’ve had it before, but I didn’t find any trace of it while organizing teas, and I had no rating/note about it, and it sounds so yummy! So either I haven’t actually had it before, or I have, and it was either a casualty of the work mice, or I liked it enough that I finished my sample during the time I wasn’t reviewing on Steepster. Who knows.
Anyhow, it smelled delicious in the bag. Like creamy, vanilla bean ice cream. And as luck would have it, it also tastes like that! I can’t really taste any matcha or green tea base, but there’s lots of creamy vanilla, and I like it. At least in this cup, the stevia is not sweet enough to be off putting or to linger overly long, which is good.
I’ll have to see if subsequent cups are this good, but this is not a bad tea to have 50g of, at least from my first impression.
