Peeling tape off bamboo veneer

When I peeled the tape off my latest bamboo veneer order, it took some of the wood with it.  Not a huge deal, but is there any way to minimize or eliminate this?  I tried peeling parallel to the grain and this seemed maybe even worse.  Best seemed to be to pull perpendicular to the grain and pulling the tape back on itself, instead of outward.

Strangely the first bamboo veneer I ordered a year ago had a smoother surface, and it didn't get damaged when I peeled the tape off.  Both are bamboo veneer blonde 2.7 mm.
