My matcha order was the following:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
After having to see Helena’s posts about pumpkin pie matcha for the past few months? Weeks? I finally got the chance to order some of my own to try. Since it’s only recently that I started drinking pumpkin anything drinks, I opted to go with hot, since I’m not sure cold will do the trick for me.
As always, I brewed this up into a warm latte. Let me tell you friends, this did NOT disappoint! It’s pumpkin, it’s spicey…. there’s a richness to this that brings out the pumpkin and cinnamon flavours. I don’t get much in terms of the pastry side of “pumpkin pie” but i usually have trouble with that aspect of tea and drinks.
I don’t think I’d drink this straight but as a latte, the creaminess of the milk helps offset the spices. If you don’t like cloves though, stay away from this one! The robust flavouring in this one works well with the added milk since the flavour isn’t lost either.
Mmmmm a replacement for those starbucks pumpkin spice lattes for sure! This matcha is so much better :) I will be forcing my better half to try this soon. I know he’ll love it!
