I really like Pukka tea but I find it a little hard to come by in the US. I originally started drinking the brand on my first visit to the UK and they got me hooked on good greens. My Target carried it for about two months and I poured boxes into my basket every trip but for some reason they stopped carrying it again. All that to say, when I get to the UK I go to Tesco and I buy a bunch of boxes of Pukka tea.
This time they had bags of latte mixes across from the tea, with the coffee. I’m hooked on matcha anything and can and will spend $4.60 on a grande matcha latte at Starbucks every morning so I grabbed a bag of the matcha mix.
I just now grabbed the bag to make one and noticed that’s its actually called “Majestic Matcha Chai” which is great because I also love chai lattes, although I feel like they missed an opportunity for “Matchai” but anyway.
It says “a velvety blend with cinnamon and cardamom” but it’s really like “a kinda grainy blend with mostly cardamom”. I like cardamom so that’s okay. The mix is vegetarian /vegan/no added sugar /dairy free/soya free/gluten free which I feel like makes it convenient if you’ve got dietary preferences. It’s sweetened with licorice which in this case is basically unsweetened. I’m okay with that because I feel like the Starbucks stuff is a little too sweet.
The instructions say 2 heaped teaspoons per 250mL hot milk and that is too much. One is fine. This is a good thing I feel like because now the bag makes that much more. It’s very cardamommy. This makes it more chai than matcha but the matcha is still there.
It’s drinkable as is but after half a cup I felt like the cardamom was making it kind of strong so I added a small amount of sugar and then it was great. I think honey would have been even better and I’ll try that next time.
My only complaint is the graininess of the spices. At the bottom of the mug were veritable chunks of cardamom and maybe cinnamon. Other than that it was very nice and will be a nice replacement for my morning Starbucks (until the bag runs out).
