3 Tasting Notes
I always forget how much I enjoy sipping on this tea. It has a light vegetal taste with a hint of sweetness that comes from the popped rice pieces. I have also enjoyed this tea as an iced tea and it is quite tasty in a rice cracker sort of way!
Flavors: Sweet, Vegetal
I am in love with this tea! It is so, so similar to Pistachio Cream from DT (which I also love an enjoy, but is sadly discontinued) It’s rich and creamy, and just the right amount of sweetness for my tastes. I enjoy this tea sometimes as is just steeped in hot what and other times with a splash of milk or better yet as a latte! It reminds me of a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie, MmMmmm!
Oh you are so delicious!
Defintely grassy taste is to be expected, some what vegetal. As a hot tea I tend to drink this one as a rather fast hot shot. But Iced? whole other story! Add some almond milk or skim milk in there and it really shines.
At the moment I am whiskless =( but I have been using a little hand held frother, which gets it to foam a little bit but not as well as having a proper whisk! Definitely recommend that.
Excellent to experiment and bake with too! I used my Matcha Matsu to make a flavoured popcorn butter with cumin and soy sauce, as well I used it daily in my smoothies and boy! does it give me a great boost of energy and leaves me feeling great!
Also I purchased a small amount in a tin, it’s easier to store and scoop out. A lot of the powder gets lost on the bags and for the price I want all the matcha I can get!
