It's okay - it makes my head a little buzzy and my heart beat a little too fast.
Love that it is easy to take to go, and the idea of adaptogens in drinks is really cool too. I tried the matcha, and in the nicest way possible it was just a no. Maybe I was comparing it to matcha in Japan, which is great and obviously you can't expect it to taste that good. I also have had my fair share of macadamia nut milk in Hawaii which is also another reason I was drawn to Taika at the store, but the taste is really not there. I will consider trying another flavor.
Love the matcha flavor!!!

I LOVED this! The tea was light and refreshing and bubbly and not too sweet! A bit pricey but definitely worth it!
Just tried this for the first time yesterday and was super impressed. I had the Mocha Latte (last one on the shelf) and the flavor was really balanced and pleasant. I will try anything that's zero sugar but they're not always worth having. This was actually a delight and I drank it all pretty quickly.
There's a chalky chunky texture to it when you get near the end. Didn't mind it too much.
I was so looking forward to try Taika because a canned matcha latte with macadmia milk sounds dreamy right? Anyone who is a matcha connoisseur knows that high quality matcha has that ✨ color ✨ and this did not have that...after pouring this into a glass, it looked quite muddy! The taste of matcha was VERY light and as I continued to take more sips, I noticed there were clumps sticking to the side of my cup like the matcha was not whisked properly. Would not recommend for the matcha latte, but hopefully the experience of the regular latte is better.
I mostly have caffeinated drinks for the taste - I don't find that caffeine (or Taika's drinks) has much of an effect on me. Because of that, I wouldn't recommend Taika because I personally didn't like the flavors I tried. There was a weird sour taste.
i tried the yerba mate and i felt that there wasn't anything special about it. flavor was fine and packaging is nice. i didn't really feel like the adaptogens did anything for me.
Good product but still not quite sure why I should 'connect' with the brand and what its stands for. As a brand and design junky I need more...if not more, then different would be enough!
This brand leaves me a little cold...no pun intended
I have tried the Oatmilk Latte variety of Taika, and the flavor is actually pretty great for a canned latte. Usually the can imparts an unpleasant aftertaste to coffee drinks, but they somehow avoided that with these! In my experience, the texture is not as smooth as you'd want from a latte. I'm not sure if the additives or oat milk have some separation that occurs over time, but that is something to look out for with these, depending on when and where you purchase them. I'd like to try the other varieties in the future to see how they compare.
