I haven’t been on steepster in forever, but had to share my new way to drink matcha. I’m sure someone has probably written about it before, but I don’t feel like searching so I’ll just tell you.
A few weeks ago a friend of mine was going on and on and on about bulletproof coffee, which, in its simplist form, is coffee, butter, and MCT oil (derived from coconut oil & Palm oil). I don’t drink coffee so I didn’t think much more about it. Then I was at New Seasons (a more neighborhoody version of Whole Foods and infinitely better) and the nutritionist launched into it too. I bought the MCT oil and came home to give it a try, but as a matcha drink instead of coffee.
I chose caramel because the idea of putting butter in tea sounded gross. But I love butter caramels so it seemed like the best bet. I put the matcha, water, and ghee (clarified butter) in my milk frother (I use the breville milk frother thing for my matchas) and when it was done poured some of the mct oil in.
It tastes exactly like a butter caramel. Smooth, creamy, buttery caramel. So delicious and (butter and all) super healthy. If you want to try it and don’t have MCT oil, coconut oil is supposed to have a similar effect. I will definitely be experimenting with other flavors and teas, but this was a clear winner.
So that’s all.
