drank Matcha by Olive Nation
1768 tasting notes

I have had this twice today, and I am posting a second tasting note for the sake of the WAY I made it, rather than to speak of the taste again.

I read that you can use a cocktail shaker to make matcha lattes and thought it would be a great way to get the whole drink really cold. I always enjoy my latte more when it is really icy cold and as it is now I tend the raise the straw to the level of the crushed ice at first!

I don’t have a cocktail shaker, have never held one, have never used one, but I looked at some online to research before I get one and thought my JoeMo travel mug would work. It has proven itself to be pretty leakproof.

I put a teaspoon of matcha in and didn’t bother to sift it. I added a couple of ounces of water, put the lid on, and shook it like mad! Then I added the rest of the water (about one cup total) and the honey and again put the lid on and shook like mad to get the honey to mix. Next I added a cup of milk and the ice and shook it one more time to get it nice and cold throughout.

I could have left it in my Joemo but I decanted it into my double walled tumbler to enjoy. I think next time around I will shake it after adding the ice but not the milk because there wasn’t much room for the liquid to move around. I may get a cocktail shaker after all, but I can take my time finding one and use this until I get one.

Ooh, I think I’ll try this tomorrow morning. I have a cocktail shaker sitting in a cupboard somewhere that needs some love! Thanks!

I think I may try to hunt one down. Target says they are only available online, so I might try Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four 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.

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