Backlogging. Last Tuesday.

The previous day, I’d read a tealog about a matcha smoothie made with matcha, banana, yogurt, and milk. It had been on my mind. So when I wanted something cool to drink that night, I made one. It was green, a funny colored green. And I could barely taste the matcha. I couldn’t taste much banana either. I think the ratio of ingredients was off. Too much plain yogurt. Unhappily, this was also the last on my Strawberry Matcha. I thought I’d have a single serving left afterward, but there wasn’t much left after I added it to the smoothie so I just used it all.

Unfortunately, the Cranberry, Apple, and Banana Matchas don’t sound very appealing to me. So I am matcha-less for now. And I don’t know how I’d feel about plain matcha. Plus the price. I think matcha is somewhat of a novelty tea for me.

Preparation
Iced

The other matchas are actually REALLY good- the bananan tastes just like banana runts.

It took me a couple of days to get my proportions right, I barely use any milk – just a splash for sweetness since it’s almond milk. I kind of eyeball it though, so I can’t be much help there…shame that was the last of it!
I’m kind of interested in the cranberry matcha…but banana runts hold NO appeal for me :P

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
