So its now officially fall, and when I think of fall I think of the beautiful senery from the autum leaves, halloween ( which is my favorite holiday), dressing up, pumpkin carvings and pumpkin pie of course.
My all time favorite fall drink is a pumpkin spice latte from starbucks, but its so expensive. So when I saw this i was like hummm I think I found a sustitute. I absolutly love pumpkin pie, its the one thing I will eat even though I know I will be feeling awful after (gluten allergie). I knew I needed to try this right away. So I finally got my package which took about 6 days to arrive. And as soon as I opened the package the most amazing sweet and spicy pie smell came out and filled the room. My friend came in and said it smelt like fall in my house, its smelt that amazing. I swear if I closed my eyes and smelt it I would think it was pie and not matcha.
So what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate. Which can be bought here http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/pumpkin-pie-matcha.html. So I made this into a hot latte by sifting 1 tsp of the matcha into a bowl and added 2oz of water and whisking away, I reall suck at getting a foam. And I added my matcha mixture to 6oz of steaped milk and viola Pumpkin Pie Latte. Okay so I couldn’t wait for it to cool down so I sipped it piping hot…. not the best idea, all I can taste is cloves. So wait made myself wait a bit so it would cool down, second sip, a little better added a half a teaspoon of sweeter. Amazing! Now I do get a lot more clove then anything else in this, but there is a pie sweetness in it.
Now don’t get me wrong this isn’t Starbucks but its just as good and easier on my pocket and I bet alot less sugar. I can see this becoming my new mid day drink. Its so weird you can taste everything that is in a pumpkin pie in a liquid that is green. Its kinda a mind trick to me. You look at this green liquid and think that isnt going to taste anything like pumpkin pie but it totally does. And you can still taste that matcha, its not BAM matcha but its there. Im definitly going to have to order a big order of this. So delicious! This is the perfect fall drink. Im going to have to make lattes for everyone at thanksgiving so they can all try this.
