A soon-to-be summer staple, this irresistible blend combines the classic matcha flavor with honey, lemon and a bit of sweetness. A true treat for your senses, it’s super-invigorating and perfect when the temperature climbs. And while it highlights the earthy taste of green tea, there’s no bitter or grassy aftertaste.
I woke up this morning feeling very sick. I think the temperature changes were starting to get to me. I have heard that drinking matcha can help some with sickness, because there are a lot of health benefits and properties within the tea. I have been making this matcha very frequently because I have enjoyed it so much, so this time I wanted to see how my body would react to it with being sick. I made it early in the morning before classes. I did not notice much of a difference the rest of the day, although I did notice that I did feel more energized. But I did notice that the next day I was already feeing better. I am not sure if this was because of the matcha or not, but either way I will continue to make matcha several times a week and I am so glad that I tried it because of this class.
Flavors: Earth, Green
I decided to make my weekly tea tasting note on this matcha tea again, because it has really grown on me. I made this tea in the early morning this time (7 AM), and I found that it gave me a lot of energy. I felt like I had drank a cup of coffee, but it was matcha tea instead! I am typically someone who really struggles in the morning, but this tea made me a lot more excited and energized to start my day. I made this tea iced again, like I have previously done. I have found that I prefer matcha iced. I was thinking about using this tea for my ceremony, but I ended up choosing to not do so because of the tea making process. I wanted to use a tea that would be steeped rather than whisked, just for ceremonial purposes. I really do enjoy the matcha tea making process, though, as I have found that it is really relaxing and gives me a time to reflect on the day ahead of me. This taste again was earthy, but I have found that I actually really enjoy this taste. I think it just took a bit of time to grow on me.
I have been thinking about what tea I would like to make for my tea ceremony for class, so I decided to try making matcha again to see how it would turn out this time. There is definitely an art to making matcha, and I wanted to really perfect it and see if I liked this tea better the second time. I enjoyed it the first time, but I was not quite sure if I had made it correctly. I watched another youtube tutorial again to make it this time. After it was ready, I poured it over ice again. The taste was very earthy again, and very fresh. The first time that I had made matcha, I was not sure how to feel about the earthy taste. This time, though, I actually really enjoyed the earthy-ness. I also found that the tea tasted a little bit less bitter this go-around. I made this tea mid-day and it was a nice refreshing way to break up my tasks that I had this day.
Flavors: Earth, Freshly Cut Grass
This was my very first time making matcha tea, and I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would! The taste was definitely a bit bitter. It also tasted earthy. It looked like an extremely healthy thing to be drinking because of its color, and I have learned that it actually does have many health benefits. I made this tea at 8:30 in the morning, and it was a nice relaxing treat to get my day going. I made this tea with a traditional bamboo whisk, while watching a youtube tutorial. This is a tea that I would definitely like to make again to get some practice, because I could really foresee myself enjoying matcha on a daily basis. I ended up pouring the matcha over ice, and I really enjoyed it this way. There was also something very relaxing about making tea on my own as apposed to using a tea bag like I would have normally done before this class.
Made this one this morning as a cold latte. I had really good luck making a RLT MATCHAccino in my martini shaker so I thought I would try with plain matcha. I used 1 TBSP matcha, used a bit of warm water to dissolve the matcha, 1/2 tsp sugar, about 6 oz skim milk and 1 ice cube. I shook it up in the martini shaker. It tasted good but the matcha didn’t dissolve too well and there was very minimal froth. It was slightly sweet, green matcha. Not as smooth as I would have liked. Next time I think I will still use the shaker but I am going to froth some milk separately to add on top.
It took me a while to figure out how to properly make matcha so I would enjoy the taste.
I use matcha as an ingedrient in quite a few recipes and it tastes great when mixed with plain yogurt (and some type of sweetener).
The only thing I do not like, is I don’t like drinking things that are too hot, and I find as I let the drink cool the matcha powder settles to the bottom.
