I was so excited to try this tea! I saw a comment that said it tasted like a liquid, matcha dessert! :)
These are just my opinions, since I know many people enjoyed this tea. I absolutely love Deb. She is such a wonderful person, and I will continue to support her since she makes some wonderful blends (hello, Raisin Bread Pudding!)
However, when I tried this Matcha Cream Puff; to me, it tasted strongly of coconut. Again, because there are whole coconut pieces in this, when they get hit by the hot water, they release natural oils, which gives this tea an oily mouthfeel and taste.
I think I might need to try it again, maybe I can cold steep it instead of warm steeping it? Maybe that will bring out the vanilla and matcha notes more? I will update this log if I do try it brewed differently!
To improve this tea, I think it needs more sugar since I cannot taste much maple! (I enjoy my tea sweet, though. So this might just be me) And maybe vanilla, to increase the creamy notes? Or maybe even some shredded white chocolate?
Although this tea was not for me, when you order from Deb, she gives free samples! :) I requested this as a sample to try, and maybe I got a bad scoop? Not sure!
