I had a treat receipt from ordering coffee this morning, and this has been something I’ve been trying to get the courage up to try. So I ordered it to drink on the way home from work as a treat. Unfortunately the tea flavor/matcha in this is the epitome of exactly what I don’t like in a green tea. I can’t get past the fresh hay flavor that this tea brings out. Leads me to think I really will not enjoy matcha, as this flavor/smell is something I just can’t do. Even the amount of sugar and whipped cream didn’t make it do able for me. My husband slurped it all up pretty quickly though :)
This is such a guilty pleasure.
I mean, 440 calories in one drink? That’s pretty killer.
But I love these things!
It’s very, very sweet. The matcha flavor is strong, but there’s so much milk and whipped cream that any bitterness from the green tea vanishes completely. It’s like drinking green tea ice cream, but sweeter. Much, much sweeter.
Also, as I was sitting at my desk enjoying the drink, one of our residents came in and kept looking at my drink out of the corner of his eye.
“Is that green?” he finally asked.
“Yes sir!” I answer in my perky I’m-working-hard voice.
“…thank God, I thought my eyes were going wacko on me.”
I had to pick one of these up because KS reviews them all the time. I haven’t had one in a long time. It tasted delicious. A little on the sweet side but I forgot to ask for less sweetener when I ordered. It tastes like green tea powder, not necessarily matcha, mixed with ice and cream. The green tea taste is more sweet grass than vegetable flavour. I splurged and went for the large dollop of (fake) whipped cream on top.

I have been wanting to try this, so I dragged my boyfriend with me to get one. At first, I thought that the green tea was really bitter. As I kept drinking it, the better the taste got and the more I liked it. It is really nice to have on a warm day and it was my very first taste of matcha. I wanted to try it in something before I decided to get a tin for myself. I am glad to say that it did not put me off of matcha and it makes me want to try it for myself even more now.
Even though I don’t really care for coffee, I would go to Starbucks again to get this. It was really tasty.
Personally, I find this stuff to be a crime against matcha. The one you can get in Japan is a bit better than the US one, as it is less sweet. However, all the cream and such just is not necessary. The one I got in the US actually made me feel sick.
Unless you have a serious sweet tooth, I would suggest you avoid this. If you want a matcha dessert, add the powder to some fairly plain ice cream or yogurt instead. You can even buy some decent matcha ice creams that maintain the bitter but tasty matcha flavor.
