Of the tea-sorry, three, musketeers, the impressive sounding brown sugar boba matcha latte was the one that least impressed from @boberteasg. As @visualindulgence succinctly put it: it’s watered down. And he just came back from Taiwan, the land of 800 episode soap dramas and bubble tea, so he knows what he’s talking about...I think.⠀

It’s true. Sad, but true. The matcha latte was diluted, and tasted a lot more like milk with a bit of matcha flavouring. The trademark bitterness of matcha was missing, and that’s when I knew it wasn’t quite all it was made out to be. And considering that the cost is close to six bucks a cup, it just isn’t good enough at the moment.⠀

Still, the pearls (or boba, if you’re a young kid who knows nothing of the reign of Sweettalk) were the saving grace. Bouncy, charmingly chewy and appealingly sweet, these balls were a blast.
