Tea Review: Matcha White Peach (Yunomi/Kanes)

Matcha White Peach/抹茶 白桃美人
Type: Flavored Green
Origin: Japan, Shizuoka and Aichi Prefectures
Product Description:

A sweet matcha flavored with white peach. Add hot milk to transform this into a delicious latte!
Temperature: 160° F
Tea Amount: 10 gram (2 teaspoons)
Water: 6 ounces 

The blend ingredients include matcha, white peach flavor, and sugar.

After whisking, the vivid green infusion is semi-opaque with a sweet aroma of peaches and something that reminds me of lime.  The taste is sweet with the flavor of ripe white peaches and matcha.

If you enjoy white peaches as much as I do, chances are that you'll really like this matcha blend.  Though sugar is one of the ingredients, the taste isn't overwhelmingly sweet and doesn't leave behind an unusual aftertaste.  I was pleased that the matcha flavor did come through and that there was no astringency or bitterness.  This was also very tasty after chilling in the refrigerator if you're looking for a summer treat.  I prepared this using 6 ounces of water heated to 160° F and 10 grams (1-2 teaspoons) of tea as suggested.  I might use 5 grams in future as I tend to prefer a lighter flavor.  This tea does not require a whisk or matcha bowl.  

This tea was purchased by me.
