drank Caramel Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
1827 tasting notes

I don’t remember who said they did this, but someone said they put their matcha in a water bottle, added a little cold water and swirled it around really hard, then added a lot more cold water and drank it. I had read this to my eldest daughter and she said it was probably a health food nut and that was why they liked it. LOL!

Well, I decided to try it myself with my caramel matcha. Wow! It isn’t bitter at all, and if you want some flavor and a caffeine boost, this is too easy for words! It really is good! I didn’t sift, didn’t whisk, didn’t add sugar.

Up to now, I have not wanted to order any fruit flavored matcha. That just changed, because I think this would be awesome done with a fruity tasting one!

might be good if you can get a bottle with one of those protein shake balls in it. I don’t have one but I heard it’s supposed to break up clumps!

Indigo: the cool thing was that I didn’t get any clumps! Whoever posted it said to put in your matcha and just a little water and swirl like mad. Then add the rest of the way and shake. Thing is….I had the wrong measuring spoon and now I am so caffeinated I can’t think straight, LOL!

lol I did that and I’m not a health food nut at all :D Quite the opposite… guilty of pizza for breakfast this morning. Oops! But yeah the only reason I tried this method was to break up the clumps. Clumps be gone :D

ashmanra

LOL! The kids don’t always trust me when I tell them something tastes good because they don’t like as many things as I do, except for the eldest. She was sure it was someone who eats pine cones for breakfast! I will set her straight, plus it was so tasty that now I want to try it with a fruit flavored matcha. It is a good thing the Black Cherry is on sale this weekend! I just ordered the large ju st so I can use the DaisyChubb method on it! Patent pending, all rights reserved.

Haha patent pending! awesome.
I did this when I went camping a few years ago and it turned out ok now that I think back!!

DaisyChubb

Ohh it will be SO GOOD with Black Cherry! I have some on the way too :D Black Cherry soda is one of my other bubbly pleasures. No worries everyone, Creative Commons license! Experiment away! lol

That may have been me, a couple weeks back with cheesecake matcha :) I got the method from someone else though http://blog.mellowmonk.com/2010/07/cold-brewing-matcha-in-bottle.html

Given how many of us are playing with flavored matchas now, we could probably use a discussion thread on favorite (and least favorite, ha) prep methods…

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
