(Notes taken from my own comments after Cofftea’s tasting note on Den’s Teas Matcha Kaze, to which she added drinking chocolate):

Well, that was truly inspired, Ms. Cofftea!

I had to wing it on the amounts of chocolate and milk, lacking measuring implements here, but as a gesture of compensation, I did use my chasen, which survived just fine. :-)

One scoop of Essencha’s Jade Bliss Matcha plus 3 spoonfuls of Lake Champlain’s Aztec Hot Chocolate added to some amount of unsweetend vanilla almond milk heated just to the point of small bubbles forming on top.

Holy moly. This was nothing less than exquisite liquid truffle. I wish I could sigh and say that oh, I couldn’t possibly have something this rich more than once a week, but that would be a bald-faced lie. I’ll probably do it again before the day is done.

I’ll be playing close attention to any future tweaks you make to this, Ms. Cofftea. The only thing I’ll do differently next time myself is drink it while it’s hotter. I, too, only taste the matcha “in the very back”, and I like the way it works. Maybe I’ll try a different chocolate next time—I do have one that isn’t spicy but has notes of almond and orange in it. That could be brilliant, I think.

hehe So glad you loved it! This’ll have me smiling all day=P

I think it was especially delicous because it was breakfast and in a bowl. Drinking chocolate from a bowl for breakfast just seems so naughty lol. Isn’t it great to be an adult and be able to do this kinda stuff?:)

Bio

I’m a writer and a documentary filmmaker, and also a mama to one 13 month-old boy—with another baby on the way this spring! I’m pretty much caffeine-free these days, and learning to love the Rooibos. I grew up in Wisconsin and after 5 years in Chicago and 11 in NYC, I now live in a ghost town in the desert. And I love it.

Location

the high desert hills of northern New Mexico
