5049 tasting notes

Oh yeah… that’s right. What’s better than cheesecake or caramel matcha? CHEESECAKE CARAMEL MATCHA! Hells yes! After yesterday’s fiasco i needed a double dose of goodness this morning to kick start my day. Since i couldn’t decide which one i wanted, i tossed both into my smoothie this morning. Best. decision. ever. yes that’s right..two tasting notes. one for each. because today? today is all about doing whatever i want. so ha! :)

I have some flavoured matchas I want to try :) What sort of smoothie do you suggest? Or just throw some fruit in and hope for the best hah?

Oh man, I’m so desperately interested in trying that matcha, but I’m such a newb I’m scared to order a whole batch! More reviews like this and I may have to take the plunge.

@Elizabeth. I am not a matcha fan but even I enjoyed the caramel matcha. If you like flavourings, go for a stronger level to make it more yummy. If you like green tea, maybe go for a bit less. It’s a good one to cut your teeth on!

Courtney – So I don’t like straight matcha + water. Anytime i have matcha it’s always either as a latte or a smoothie. For the smoothie I basically just toss it in the blender with milk and ice, though I’ve discovered that I like the texture that a frozen banana adds to them as well. Sometimes i’ll add other frozen fruits in as well – blueberry + vanilla matcha + frozen peaches makes me pretty happy

Elizabeth – I was the same way, only started drinking matcha a few months back. I don’t like the flavour so 90% of my flavouring through red leaf is robust or at least distinctive. Caramel seems to be a good starting point for most people. If you don’t want to invest a bunch of money into trying it, you could use the red leaf discount code that a few of us have which will get you 50% off an order (the best sale i’ve seen so far) for new customers. Mine’s DYH75 if you decide to try it and the discount helps ease your fear of not liking it. Happy to chat any time too if you have questions/things to ask about it.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
