This sweet, dessert-like tea experience offers the familiar earthiness of matcha powder as well as the decadent taste of rich cocoa.
Tea Forte is a master in finding the perfect balance in all its matcha tea blends. High quality organic matcha (one of the best, in my opinion) combined with flavors that don't over-power. The chocolate blend is smooth and satisfying. Single serve matcha tea makes a lovely gift for matcha lovers. And now having 30g canisters of all these lovely blends means we never have to run out of our personal favorites. Thank you Tea Forte.
You can definitely taste the chocolate in this tea although the added flavoring isn’t overpowering. I tried it with water and another time with coconut milk. I preferred the plain water version, but that’s just personal preference. If you’re trying matcha for all the benefits, then this would be a good place to start as matcha can be a strong flavor if you’re new to it, and everyone likes chocolate, right? As you prepare your tea, keep in mind that this already has sugar added.
Never having tried Matcha tea before today, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I received all five flavors to have a selection for my palette to pick from. I tried the chocolate first and in the latte form (use 1/2 n 1/2 and milk combination). It was creamy, but had a bit of an after taste, but again, I have no basis for what it should taste like. I will try again, but with water only so I can compare. It wasn’t unpleasant, just different. I am sure, like everything new, it will be an acquired taste. I will review all the other flavors over this next week.
I'm new to Matcha and tried the five flavor Single Steeps assortment (chocolate, chai, coconut, ginger and pure matcha). I expected chocolate to be a little too sweet for tea but after my first cup it's become one of my favorites in the assortment (ginger and chai too). The chocolate flavor is subtle, not overpowering; maybe the vanilla helps tone it down. A great balance of flavors and tea with a slightly creamy texture. Can't wait to try it frothed.
Although this matcha blend is delicious on it's own, I love mixing it up as a frothy latte best. It is perfectly flavorful - so well-balanced. I pick up the subtle sweetness from the cocoa & vanilla while still being able to taste the delicate flavor of the green tea. No bitter taste, no excess residue at the bottom of the cup. For a little extra sweetness, sometimes I'm guilty of adding a little drizzle of chocolate syrup to an iced latte, too. c;
