My first matcha experience! Thanks, Meghann, for sending some my way!!
Okay, it would probably be a lot better if I had the right matcha tools. A cereal bowl and a metal flat whisk probably aren’t the best, but it’s all I’ve got here. At first I used 1/2 teaspoon to 8 oz of 200 degree water. After a sip, I added another 1/2 teaspoon.
It does taste like banana runts! It’s not very strong, but it’s definitely there, and the aftertaste is exactly the same as after you finish a runt. The green tea taste is really good, too. Delicious, but…
It’s grainy. I didn’t sift the powder, so maybe that’s it? Or my little whisk wasn’t good enough? I didn’t get much froth, but I did manage to get some. Taste is pretty darn good, but the grainy I can’t handle. Maybe a bit less powder? Advice would be greatly appreciated.
