865 Tasting Notes
Done w/ work for now. My position is newly created and my boss is really behind so I often don’t work for long periods at a time- that will DEFINITELY change in the future though. Paid my phone bill (for the next 3 months- YAY!) and my credit cards (not yay). It was my first payment since getting my computer fixed and it wasn’t recognized so I had to enter a verification code… that’s when I noticed 2 phone numbers were shown on my account. This can NOT be good. Grrr… I need matcha. Good ol’ fashioned hot matcha in my chawan. I may even have a full bowl.
Was sooo tired last night I actually fell asleep at 9. Then woke up when breaking news started and forced myself to go to bed at 11:30. Really should have been up at 7:30, but I slept til 8:30. Having coffee w/ a tsp of chai and a tsp of cocoa powder to try to wake me up.
Decided to sleep in so I chugged some matcha protein water before work. Didn’t help my headache though. :(
Bucked up and actually tried this plain today. …And it’s surprisingly good! It tastes like a mixture of chocolate, coffee, and tea (in spite of this being an herbal)- and I can’t taste the licorice at ALL. YAY!=D Definitely still affective. Much more delicious than any other alternative.
Matcha OJ- not a large amount of added flavor, but a nice freshness.
Matcha protein water and blackberries is the extent of my lunch today.
Rough morning. Watched a movie til 1am, my dog kept me up til 2am, and I had to be up by 8am (thank God I have no commute to work or I’d really be in rough shape). Just as my alarm went off my boss sent me a text saying he forgot he had a meeting at 9 so we’d have to push back training. Decided to get up anyway rather than going back to bed to force myself to practice. Needed massive caffeine today so I made my morning eye opener: 1tsp chai and one packet instant coffee in a cup of boiling water w/ 1tsp caramel creamer. I’d be a zombie without it today.
Have to get up at 2am tomorrow and breakfast isn’t til 7. Decided to have some matcha protein water before bed in case I’m too tired tomorrow.
Getting really low on this… never imagined that I’d go thru almost 100g of matcha in 15 days. Added lemon juice to my strawberry protein water this morning. I generally like lime over lemon in water, but I thought the lemon would go better w/ the strawberry than the lime. It looks like sewer water, but it’s really good!
Made my strawberry protein water w/ this today. Didn’t necessarily make it taste like ginger, but it did tone down the strawberry so it doesn’t taste like strawberry juice. Something I didn’t mention yesterday… this is a LOT foamier than the pink lemonade version… weird.
