This bright matcha blend both comforts and energizes those who drink it, bringing together the unexpected but highly pleasurable pairing of earthy matcha and sunny coconut.
I found the flavor to be very suttle and not at all like a sunscreen as previously indicated by another customer. I love coconut and have definitely had products with an off taste because of the imitation flavoring. I think for some the smell of coconut (my daughter is one of these people) triggers the thought of sunscreen. don't be afraid to try it. I found it to be quite good with regular milk and also with a small amount of coconut milk.
This matcha blend has a notable coconut flavor and if made with coconut milk, it really brings that out while tamping down the green tea/matcha. Out of all the matcha blends at Tea Forte, this is probably my least favorite but that's mostly because coconut isn't my first choice of flavors in general. Some people have noted the coconut is subtle, but I found it to be fairly strong. The matcha benefits are wonderful, though, and it gives me a nice kick of energy without jitters. If you're new to matcha, be sure to follow the directions and realize that this will have a definite green tea undertone. Also, it already has sugar added but doesn't have a sweet taste to it beyond what you would expect with the coconut. The set of flavors will make a great holiday gift for tea-loving friends and the canisters are really cute!
This is our least favorite of TeaForte's matcha combinations (which we generally enjoyed). Something about the coconut just didn't work with the matcha flavor. One of my friends described it as tasting like sunscreen. While I don't taste sunscreen myself, I can understand what she meant.
