Matcha Latte… but made a little bit funky!

Ever since the New York Times feature on them, one of my coworkers and I have had a light hearted debated on whether matcha and peanut butter cookies would taste good. We’re both very intrigued, but she’s quite skeptical the combo would work together and I’m more worried that the peanut butter would really over power the matcha.

Thing is, we’re both not willing to commit to actually making the cookies to find out. We then heard about someone who had tried the two as a latte (and not enjoyed it), and I figured that was something I could easily do! So, basically I melted a few teaspoons of peanut butter and stirred that in with some pre-whisked matcha until it was pretty emulsified and then I poured that mix into my Breville Milk Frother with some cashew milk.

Here’s the deal. It wasn’t good. It also wasn’t bad. The thing that it really was was savory. I could taste the nuttiness of the peanuts and texture-wise everything was creamy but it just brought out this DEEPLY umami flavour and all of the vegetal notes of the matcha in a way where the latte sort of tasted like fresh pea puree. It was weird. I had a hard time processing the combo as I drank it.

…and now I’m not sure where I stand on the cookies at all.


The sacrifices we make for science…

Following the lackluster chai latte at the cafe today, I decided to go with something else…a matcha latte. Now, I normally wouldn’t get this because the matcha I drink is almost exclusively flavored matcha. However, this was a white chocolate matcha latte and I figured I would give it a go.

I ended up really enjoying it. They whisked this matcha in some hot water and then dumped a few ounces of white chocolate. Like literal cubes of it. That was topped with steamed milk. It made for such a creamy and decadent latte. The white chocolate really came through and provided a great top note to the more vegetal base of the matcha.

It honestly was so good that I even got a matcha smoothie to go using this same matcha, a banana, and vanilla oat milk. Once again, I am enjoying it but the smoothie is a bit icy and not as good as the latte from before. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed this matcha today and would get either drink again.
