Trying the Tea-ramisu Matcha from Starbucks

For years now, I’ve  been on the hunt for the most matcha-rap (sounds like masarap, a Filipino word that means delicious) finds in the metro. So the matcha lover in me rejoiced upon finding out that Starbucks Philippines is offering a new matcha green tea-based frappucino— the Tea-ramisu. It was made available since Wednesday, April 11. So I had to go to the nearest Starbucks branch to find out for myself if it’s good or otherwise.

Sharing the very short video I made just so you know how it looks like. I ordered Grande. I usually order my drinks without the whipped cream but I have to find out how this new drink looks like in its ‘basic’ form.  The video is embedded below.

Here’s my takeaway:

  1. The drink is too sweet. I swear I can imagine the spoonfuls of sugar being poured into the drink!
  2. I could not taste the ‘matcha-ness’ of it. I feel like it’s safe to say that there’s only about 5 to 10 percent matcha in it, the rest they’re all sugar, cream, etc!
  3. For around 150-200, I feel like this drink is too expensive.
  4. Would I order it again? Sadly, no. 😦
