I like! I’ve tried at least one or two other powdered Genmaicha teas in the past and have enjoyed them. I really like how well this MatchaBooster mixes in to the cold water in my water bottle! It makes a really good drink to go!
For the purposes of this review, I grabbed my water bottle (which holds a little more than 16 ounces of water) and filled it about half way with water. Then I added a level teaspoon of the Genmai MatchaBooster powder to the bottle and secured the lid and shook it until the powder was well-incorporated. Then I topped it off the rest of the way with water and shook again. Now it’s time to enjoy!
No lumps. No unincorporated particles of tea. It mixes thoroughly – quickly! And it stays incorporated. You don’t need to shake it every time you take a drink. I did shake it a couple of times while I drank, but this wasn’t to incorporate the tea (I didn’t notice any settlement during the time that it took me to finish the bottle), it was to sort of aerate the tea and try to froth it.
Because that’s probably the only thing that I felt was missing. When I drink Matcha, I do like that froth. This doesn’t have a lot of it.
That said, this does have a really good flavor and the lack of froth isn’t keeping me from enjoying it. Yeah, I miss the froth, but I like the energizing feeling I experience when I drink this, and I love the sweet, toasty flavor of the Genmai together with the light, grassy and buttery notes of the Matcha. It’s a tasty drink!
It’s really good with just plain water, but if you’re looking to elevate it – try it with coconut water! Wow! I love the combination of this Genmai MatchaBooster with coconut water. The coconut water adds another level of creamy sweetness! It’s a very refreshing and rejuvenating beverage!
