I had to grab these Caramel Matchacchinos on sale! HUGE discount! They sounded delicious anyway!
First up: hot latte
I was surprised there was already a scoop in the big bag of bright green matcha! Very handy! Little things like that make my day. :D So, I heated up about nine ounces of milk, definitely not boiling, as that would ruin the matcha. Just about warm! One scoop of matchacchino in the bottom of the mug and I slowly pour the measuring cup with warm milk with one hand while I’m whisking the matcha with a fork in the other (yes, unofficial matcha mixing, I know!) The dry matcha has a lovely sweet fragrance. The taste is amazing! It’s like a healthier cappuccino! I could have used MORE matcha flavor and less sugar in this cup. Matchaccino is different from regular matcha in that it already has sugar in it. It definitely doesn’t need more added! My cup was gone in minutes. (Whoops! ) Honestly, if tea wasn’t typically too hot to gulp, I’d probably gulp that down too! Instantly I felt energized!
Second cup: brewed like a typical tea
With this cup, I really just wanted to taste the matchaccino without milk. So I cooled the water a while and slowly poured the water in the mug while whisking with a fork. This cup may have been even better than with milk because I get to taste more of the matcha – the milk hides the flavor a bit. I really liked this cup!
Luckily, I love this stuff since I bought a bunch of pouches. It will definitely increase my milk intake too, since I normally do not drink very much milk.
