865 Tasting Notes
Decided to be brave: 2 pinches of crushed red pepper steeped in 8oz boiling water for 3 min, reboil the water, add 2tsp chai, 2tsp cocoa powder, 2 TB caramel coffee creamer, and 8oz fat free milk. WOW. Definitely even more of a kick w/ the red pepper. So good though. Gotta get some decaf instant coffee to add to this.
Funny story. Mom and I went out for dinner w/ my grandparents and I wanted to treat my mom to coffee after. It’s a bit of a hastle getting my chair in and out just for a quick trip and mom had things to do yet tonight so I just gave my order written on a piece of paper (you’ll see why in a bit) for her to run and get the drinks. I ordered a tall double pump mocha, double pump white mocha, double pump caramel, double pump SF vanilla, double pump iced dirty chai Americano w/ whip and mocha and caramel drizzle. The poor barista just kinda chuckles and says “I think we’ve made this before” and dubbed it “the works iced Americano”. It’s bad when you’re known by your drink and you’re not even the one ordering it! This really is not as good as it could be. I wish the chai concentrate itself was better. It’s kinda like ordering a fat free sugar free brownie instead of the full fat and sugar version lol.
Ate a pizza last night that made me sick… attempting to detox at work. 2tsp matcha 4TB lime juice, strawberry kiwi protein water, and 16oz water.
Finally slept great… but I was awake at 6:30. Caffeine will help me from crashing later. Mom left me about cup and a half of coffee this morning so I used the last half of a cup or so to make chai w/ milk added to make it a full cup. Normally just “dumping” really annoys me, but this turned out good.
1TB of wing sauce added to my chicken yakisoba bowl for lunch… BIG mistake. Had to try to calm my mouth w/ matcha protein water. This was strawberry kiwi. I think pink lemonade would have worked better, but I haven’t been able to find it.
My first experience with an angry client at work today… I’m just greatful it was in an e-mail and not a real time phone call. I’m extremely sensitive and need to work on not taking things personal. You’d think working 3 months as a telemarketer would have worked, but desensitization thru exposure just isn’t effective for me. I need a matcha break. Full chawan.
CRAP! I found almost a half of a container of this that’s a year old! I must have gotten distracted w/ Frank’s matchas or something. Dispite the nose dive in color, this is actually still pretty good.
Matcha OJ seems even more smooth and creamy than normal- YUM.
Matcha OJ to cut the spice of dinner.
Have some of these and had no clue what to do with them. Decided to have a yakisoba chicken noodle bowl so I steeped 2 bags (because there’s 2 servings per bowl) first, let it cool, then added it to the bowl before microwaving instead of plain water. Definitely gives it a nice flavor (along w/ the 2tsp of wing sauce I added). Now if there would only be more veggies and actual chicken in it. The other half of the bowl will be my dinner.
