This was my first time having a flavored matcha. I usually go for plain, unsweetened matcha, opting to add a little honey or almond milk after preparing. So Japanese Green Tea IN’s Mikan one was a new taste for me. I was sent the green tea and also a lemon one for free, in exchange for an unbiased review.
Mikan is mandarin, and this powdered green tea’s ingredients are Premium Green Tea with Added Japanese Orange Powder and Natural Sugar. It was refreshing and would be good iced and as a latte.
If you aren’t into sweet teas, you probably won’t like this one, but the citrusy, tart mandarin orange taste is very flavorful and cheerful. If you’re new to matcha, this is a good place to start. The orange sweetness stood out most, with a hint of green tea showing up after. It was a nice treat.
