Day 8 – Matcha Advent
Bubbles formed and then immediately dissipated into nothing.
Once Steeped the resulting liquid is golden brown and bares a very dry and herbal scent. Reminds me of dirty paint water.
Flavour wise it’s dry and wooden with a herbal and sour after taste that lingers with some astringency. It also has a refreshing quality similar to liquorice.
I took a large gulp and shuddered in disgust, that’s how much I dislike Mate. But that’s a personal thing. Besides, I doubt people drink it for the flavour.
It was interesting and perhaps better than your average Mate, but it’s still not for me. Perhaps it would be better mixed with other things, like as part of a smoothie where I’m covering the taste.
