Iced Oat Milk Latte!

So I picked this up, along with the LLT version, while in BC last week. When I was putting together a list of where I wanted to shop I actually had to narrow it down because there’s just so many stores in Vancouver and we didn’t have nearly as many days there.

Because Paragon isn’t one of those big “infamous” stores in the area I nearly cut it out, but when I was “preshopping” on their website to narrow my list I saw this tea and it was the sole reason this one ended up included in our trip. Why? Well other than the fact I’m a huge hojicha fan, I just haven’t seen flavoured hojicha offered from places other than 3 Leaf Tea before so that was exciting to me!

I don’t know why I felt so compelled to have this as a latte. Specifically an iced latte too. Mango and milk don’t sound like they should get a long. However, there’s always stuff like Mango Lassi out there that break those rule so y’never know.

It was weird, though.

That said, the mango taste itself wasn’t unpleasant nor was the hojicha! I thought the grind on the hojicha was very smooth so there were no unpleasant textural issues and the roast was nice and golden with these deep, rich nutty notes and a pleasant caramel-like tinge to elements of coffee or roasted grains. The mango? Erring just a little bit on that more pine-y green mango type note but still with a ripeness to it. Actually, I found myself thinking a lot of the mango matcha from Chamberlain Coffee which (from my memory) was pretty similar. The contrast with the hojicha made it pop a lot more, and I thought almost made it feel sweet in a way that it might not have on a matcha base.

I’m excited to revisit this one, just minus the oat milk.
