I’m not having much luck on the matcha front today. I was still craving an iced matcha, even after the lemongrass fiasco. I should have grabbed one of the flavors I know I like (grapefruit or english toffee), but instead grabbed this one. I made it hot a few days ago and it was ok. Not good or bad, just ok. Today I made it iced. It’s definitely better hot. I don’t really taste the butter cookie. Just a sweet vanilla flavor with a really strange aftertaste. Like its been sweetened by something artificial. I’ve almost got it covered up by a combo of almond, coconut, and regular milk, but it sneaks through. I don’t know if I just don’t like the black flavor or the butter cookie flavor. Either way, I think I’m sticking with green matchas from here on out.
Okay, I need to go find to a reliable tea from my favorites cupboard to help me recover from the disappointing start to my afternoon tea.
