Hot, straight, and very frothy! This was a free sample in the door bag from the Montreal Tea Festival, and it took me a while but I finally had the chance to whisk it up. I even did so in the matcha bowl I bought at the festival!
I don’t really _love_the taste of straight matcha unless it’s very smooth and creamy, and this matcha definitely is quite smooth but the flavour is a bit more of that cooked asparagus/seaweed kind of taste that I’m not a huge fan of. I actually finished the matcha bowl because I didn’t want to waste the matcha since it was perfectly good – just not a flavour profile that resonates particularly well with me. Even if it had been half as oceanic, I think I could have appreciated it a lot more.
Still, it’s always good to get out of my comfort zone. Plus, with this being a free sample anyway I’m especially glad to have tried it!
