I’ve heard good things about the flavoured matcha from T2, so I was really excited this week when I got the opportunity to try out two of their flavoured matchas – and when I smelled this one!? Man, I was in heaven!

I’ve had Jaffa cake before, although I’m blanking right now on where I actually tried it. I know it’s a chocolate orange sponge cake type thing, though – and from my memory I recall thinking it was pretty damn good. So that was promising to me, as a matcha flavour! I have to admit though, from the moment I started whisking this tea up I began having some serious doubts…

For starters, I just could not get this matcha to froth. However, it also had the absolute oiliest surface I’ve ever seen on a matcha; like, there were little droplets of oil collecting on the surface of the whisked up matcha. Gross! They translated to the taste of the matcha too; very oily. At least it wasn’t gritty though, which was actually a fear when I noticed how quickly the cocoa powder blended into this was settling on the bottom of the matcha bowl…

Taste wise!? It’s a solid B minus. The chocolate and orange both come through, and taste pretty nice – a little creamy, not overly sweet or bitter and pretty well balanced. I do get a jaffa cake vibe, which is a good thing! However, the finish is pretty chemical to me – especially the lingering orange notes. So, that lingering chemical taste combined with the general oily quality? Big no, for me.

I could see this as salvageable in a latte – but straight up like I had it? I wouldn’t try it again that way…
