I treated myself to a beautiful blue matcha bowl, so sat down to “christen it” with a bowl of Matcha Matsu.
I have some really odd texture issues, so I don’t generally drink matcha unless it’s in a latte, but I wanted to have the first drink out of my new bowl be pure.
Hmm, the flavour is nice, but the way the matcha coats my mouth when I have it straight bothers me. I do a thin matcha for straight consumption, thicker when I intend to make a latte, but something about the latte (is it the milk? or the texture of the foam??) makes the feel of the matcha sticking to my mouth seem less offensive.
Barring the texture issues, it’s a really nice bright green tea. Crisp is probably the best word to describe it. I can’t think of anything to compare the flavour to, but it’s refreshing, totally different than my usual choices of buttery greens.
