This is the last of the new matchas – and what a good day for matcha lovers!
I’ve had a lot of raspberry matchas from different companies, so I’m surprised that it took DT so long to create one. I had a hard time not immediately comparing it to what I’ve tried from other companies, and so I think the first time I tried it I was VERY critical. However, taking a step back I think it’s a really nice raspberry flavour – it’s just not massively different from what other companies offer. That’s not necessarily good or bad; it just depends on what’s easiest to get ahold of for you if you enjoy the flavour. Like, for me it’s REALLY easy to access DT products and I enjoyed the creamy, sweet raspberry flavour of this matcha a lot so it just makes sense that if I want a raspberry matcha in my stash that it will be this one. If it’s not easy for you to get DT matchas and you want a raspberry matcha and another company is carrying one you can buy much easier or cheaper then you’re most likely not missing out by buying theirs over this one. It’s all down to circumstance, IMO.
What really pushed this one over the edge for me was having it in latte form though – it’s so decadent, rich and sweet! Very much like a creamy raspberry milkshake, and that’s exactly why I enjoy both of DT’s Blueberry and Strawberry flavours so much. At some point I’ll probably do a side by side of those three matchas for all of the berry fans out there, but going on my gut feeling right now this is PROBABLY how I would personally rank them:
Blueberry, Raspberry, then Strawberry. All are excellent in my own opinion though…
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 and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
