Yum watermelon! When I opended the package of this all I could think was summer! And why didnt I get this before the summer eneded. You get this lucious sweet smell that just fills my house, its smells like joly ranchers! Everytime I open the container everyone in the house knows exactly what I’m doing. So what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate. I had to try this cold first. So I made myself a Iced latte, I can taste the earthiness of the matcha but there if this sweet juicy watermelon taste that is mouth watering. I have to say out of all the matchas I’ve tried so far, this is the one that I taste the matcha the most. I did get it in delicate I bet this would be amazing in robust!
I made my latte by adding 1 tsp of my watermelon matcha and put it through my sifter. Added 2 oz of hot water and started whisking away until its all was blended. Added ice to my glass, then mixed about half a cup of milk into my bowl with the matcha. After everything was mixed together I poured it into my glass with the ice. I did add a bit of sweetener to bring out more of the watermelon sweetness. Yum this is the perfect drink for a nice summer day. I only wish watermelons where still in season, after reading reviews of people putting in watermelon chunks I want to try it.
Its lucious, its sweet, its earthy, its great. Alot of the times with drinks that have watermelon flavor they just dont taste like watermelon at all. This is a very authentic watermelon flavor to me. Its crazy who would have thought watermelon and matcha would go together, but it does and its delicious. It amazes me how Red Leaf gets there flavors so spot on.
