A few months ago I bought this lemon matcha and also the mikan (orange) matcha by this company, wanting to add those flavors to my morning breakfast smoothies.
Sadly, both flavors turned out to be awful as smoothie additions because they are so damn packed with sugar that they make the smoothies way too sweet. So I figured I’d try a water preparation, so I added a tablespoon of powder and 500ml ice cold water to my water bottle and shook it like I was beating the devil out of it.
It just tastes like instant powdered lemonade. It’s a nostalgic taste; growing up my parents used to buy the big tubs of CountryTime lemonade powder. But I just can’t taste the matcha at all. There is a slightly different mouthfeel than I’d get with instant lemonade, but that is all I can taste.
Meh. Definitely will not purchase more of this.
