Recent Tasting Notes
Michelle sent this one a while back for her sale! thank you! It’s an individually wrapped serving of matcha with sugar in it, but it looks like a BIG serving. Probably twice as what Red Leaf’s matchaccino scoop is. With all the mess of ingredients I put in my smoothie, it was hard to tell how nice with the matcha was, but it wasn’t not good! :D A banana, raspberry yogurt, milk and whipped cream on top! So delicious. I’m getting addicted to these things.
My friend doesn’t drink green tea, and her parents came home from Japan with, well, green tea. So I passed a bunch of my teas off to her, and she traded me.
I can’t read anything on the package except for the words “Blendy Stick.” I figured it was some sort of matcha. When I opened it up, there, were a bunch of little plastic tube-type pouches which had written on the “Matcha au lait.” Awesome. Matcha with milk.
I don’t have a way to heat milk, so I heated my water to 180F and mixed that in 50/50 with milk from the fridge – I figure that would take the temp down to 150ish and also give it the support of the milk. I mixed it with my stick frother until it all looked edamame green and there was a little layer of froth on top.
It’s good, it’s really good! The first thing that hit me was the sweetener – it’s definitely sweetened, but it’s not done so past the point of drinkibility. I can still taste the matcha there, which is good. Interesting!
