Am I breaking some sort of code of ethics by using this grade in a protein smoothie? Overall, I prefer consuming matcha cold, so I haven’t tried this hot yet. I got this for free a few months ago, hence the splurgy behaviour.
200ml Silk original soy milk
50g Syntha-6 banana flavoured protein powder
2g Ceremonial Matcha
95g frozen banana
60g frozen blueberries
In comparison to Grand Cru, I can tell, even in a smoothie, that this is more vegetal, while Grand Cru is brighter. Both are grassy but this has more of a wheatgrass-like bite. I think I actually prefer the Grand Cru, whose batches are consistently brighter (emerald) green in colour. It’s crisper in flavour and not as vegetal.
