The smoothest of our matchas, arguably, Wake the Dryad gives you the soft, soothing accents of a jasmine tea you know and love, but needs no sugar to make a pleasant latte (though sugar doesn't hurt). With the caffeine of a double-shot espresso and the calming flavor of jasmine, this matcha will kick you in gear in the softest, most soothing fashion.
Warning: This matcha does have a tendency to clump up. We suggest sifting the matcha with a fine strainer, then breaking up the leftover chunks with the back of a spoon (or other applicable appliance).
