stash-mangosteen.jpgMatcha is a tea that is literally powdered tea leaf that you mix with hot water and stir, stir, stir. If you're familiar at all with the Japanese tea ceremony, matcha is what they use. I'm not really sure why they mix it into their Mangosteen Green but I really can't complain, the extra flavor was there without a doubt. The tea itself is a rainbow of greens, reds, and yellows with chunks of fruit mixed in.

I instantly got the citrus taste that you can smell wafting from this tea and the juicy pear was in the background among other fruity flavors. There is such a nice mix of flavors here every sip you find something new and I really enjoy teas that unfold like that. Sweet is something this tea does well enough on its own and the citrus makes it light and refreshing. The matcha flavor comes in at the very end just a little bit in the back of the mouth although I would imagine it would be hard for those not familiar with the taste of Japanese teas to pick up because it is very faint to begin with. I enjoyed this tea a lot, the different flavors all really work well together although not as strong as my tastes prefer when it comes to flavored teas and I would probably use more tea per cup than most to get that full flavor. I also really appreciate the natural taste of this tea, some flavored teas end up having a chemical taste to them due to the flavoring added but thats nowhere to be found in this one from Stash.

    I did the bagged version of this about a year ago, it didn’t leave much of an impression.

    However, Stash employees have indicated that the loose leaf versions differ from their “speshul” bagged siblings.
