It should be known first that I’ve had matcha flavored things many times before and haven’t really enjoyed the experience. I’ve come to realize that maybe it’s me and not the type of item I’ve eaten.
For my class I’ve decided to make a real cup of green tea, I asked the owner of the shop from where I purchased my matcha powder the best way to prepare my tea. Armed with my new tin of powder and insightful tips and tricks I went home prepared my tea. I tried three, the first time I don’t think the water was hot enough by the time it had gotten “frothy” my tea was barely warm and just tasted like grass juice. The second time I got the signature matcha flavor that we all “know and love” but still I couldn’t love it. Finally I rememered the one time I like the matcha flavor was in a bingsu dessert sweetened with sweetened condensed milk. I prepared it this way and it was better but still not my cup of tea. All in all I don’t believe this tea is poor in quality I just don’t like matcha flavor.
