I’ve officially jumped on the flavored matcha train! http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/cheesecake-matcha.html
Being obsessed with green tea flavored everything and also having a weakness for cheesecake, I figured this would be a perfect start. I feel like I was in one of those movies, where the person patiently waits by the door everyday for the postman that never comes. Ha..okay maybe not that bad, but I was fairly excited when it finally came.
After opening the bag, it smelt so incredible I was tempted to eat a spoonful of the matcha. Realizing that wasn’t the best idea, I opted to make an iced green tea latte. I wanted to get the full flavor of the matcha untainted so I didn’t add in any sweetner as I usually would. I whisked a little bit of hot water and the matcha and it foamed up nicely. Being a bartender, I threw the matcha with ice and soy milk into my shaker tins and shook away. The foam from the ice turned super frothy and tasty.
The flavor was to the t what I imagined liquid cheesecake to taste like. Right down to the slightly lemony tang you get from real cheesecake. It was more complex than just sweetened cream like I expected. After adding in a little agave the flavors popped even more.
Later in the day I even found myself craving more and decided to make a hot latte instead. I usually am a fan of iced drinks, but after having this as a a hot latte I think I’m converted. This is a very versatile matcha that I can’t wait to mix with other flavors…
mmmm pumpkin pie..caramel..acai..white chocolate… =D
