505 Tasting Notes
Chocolate almond milk, a bit of mocha greek yogurt, and a generous scoop of this equals a delicious Starbucks drink. Add some softened chia seeds and you have chocolate sprinkles. So good.
I thought Sil was crazy for having three coffee based matcha flavours (Mocha, Coffee, Tiramisu) but they are turning out to be good things. :)
I made some up in a blender with chocolate almond milk and chia seeds, which was decent. Then I decided warm some of it up and use an electric frother. Even better.
It was still a bit watery, and I added a bit too much cold milk after which didn’t help, but the creamy sweet chocolate mocha vibe is good enough even when not perfectly prepared.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cream
This one’s from Sil’s super matcha pack. 1 scoop, 8oz of almond milk, half a banana.
This was unfortunately not a hit with the two roommates. Roommate A said it was too sweet and then proceeded to guzzle down a huge mug of black coffee (she’s of that alliance). Roommate B said it tasted floral, almost like soap, and then asked for a cup of black coffee from Roommate A, which she added a lot of sugar to. It was a landslide win for the coffee party today.
Although I liked this more than the roommates I found it kind of sweet too. While I know what butterscotch hard candies are (roommates don’t) and I can taste it, I’m unfortunately not a fan of said candies. I think I’ll put this one aside when I’m feeling more inclined.
I wasn’t expecting to like this one, but I’m a sucker for butter and florals. I’m not well acquainted enough with grass, veggies, and green teas to say where this one falls but it’s good and that’s good enough for me.. One of the roommates likes this as well, so two recommendations!
I made some pretty stupid choices and said some dumb things this weekend, but drinking this wasn’t part of that, thankfully. I used 2 servings worth for a banana smoothie, and another serving as a cold almond milk mix. The rest I rubbed over some white chocolate covered pretzels.
I’ve never actually had amaretto before, although I’ve had a few amaretto flavoured things. I gather that it’s cherry-like. It’s not an everyday flavour, but I’d consider picking some up. Thanks, Sil! Here’s looking to a fresh week filled with new tea (and school assignments).
Wow! I can taste the sweet, and slightly sour, whip cream, as well as the strawberries. It all makes for a pretty decadent and rich breakfast smoothie (bananas and strawberries pair so perfectly). I like how easy and straightforward this one is, and will consider picking some up for myself in the future.
Thanks Sil for sending all of this matcha to this side of the country, and Fjellrev for repackaging and distributing all of it!
Flavors: Berries, Cream
Backlog. This is another generous matcha sample from Cavocorax!
I had this twice the other day; once in a banana almond milkshake, and a second time by doing a warm whisk and then mixing it with cold almond milk. The banana version definitely trumped the warm whisk method, which didn’t carry much bubblegum flavour until the very end of the cup.
The banana milkshake version made me feel like I should be chewing. I have mixed feelings about that.
