I threw some of this into a mango smoothie the other day. With vanilla yogurt (it was all I had at the time) and some peppermint matcha. Oh and a ton of ice. It turned out really nicely!! Not overly sweet, which is what I wanted to avoid. The mint made it super refreshing and balanced out the other spices perfectly. Now, my peppermint matcha is pretty old so the potency is kinda meh. But it was super strong when I first bought it.
Anyhow. I’ll totally try this combo again if I can!
I’m not so big on this one as a straight up tea, which I kinda expected. Definitely needs a latte style treatment. Normally with chai I don’t bother heating up the milk because I prefer the spice balance when I just add some dairy milk. But this one? it’s kinda bitter with just a few dashes of milk. And I found the same with almond milk as well. So next up, I’ll see if I can do it up cooked in a big pot-o-milk.
Also! I added some to soup. That was really good. But I’ve made three or four soups in the last few weeks and I can’t recall which. Woops.
