drank Chocolate Ecstasy Matcha by Domo

I managed to get a canister of this tea on sale at my local organic foods store which was lucky because it’s usually quite expensive and I likely wouldn’t have tried it otherwise.

I followed the steeping directions on the container that recommended 3/4 cup steamed (well heated in the microwave in my case) milk with 1 tbsp of the matcha powder, and I then filled the mug up the rest of the way with hot water. I didn’t wisk the matcha, I just made sure to stir it thoroughly with a spoon which seems to have gotten more or less the same result. The latte doesn’t look very matcha-ish being sort of an off-white colour, though there’s lots of nice froth on top – I love frothy lattes.

It’s a little bit short in the flavour department as the most prominent thing I can taste is the milk. Still I can tell that the matcha and chocolate are there – they’re just hiding. ;) The chocolate is the sort of flavour you’d find in a basic Cadbury hot chocolate mix, going for that sweet, milk chocolate flavour rather than the richer, bitter-sweet cocoa flavour. The grassy matcha is an interesting counterpoint to the chocolate – almost a yin to its yang or something silly like that.

This wasn’t bad at all for an experimental first cup, though next time I’ll add more of the powder and see if I can’t get more flavour out of it.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
