This was more like a matcha shot. It was 4:15 yesterday, I needed to leave the house by 4:30 to go paddling. I’d meant to make a Matcha milkshake (like the one HesperJune mentioned earlier this week), but time was getting away from me… So, I poured a splash of almond milk in a wide-bottomed but small mug of mine, eyeballed about 1/4 tsp of matcha with a regular ol’ “silverware” teaspoon, stirred it up a bit, added more milk (about 5 oz total), frothed it up with a few short blasts of my Areolatte (the “moo” model), and gulped it down.
It was delicious, there were somehow NO lumps (which I’ve never had happen when trying to cold steep/electric whisk matcha), and it foamed up very well. Apparently Blue Diamond almond milk is better than Silk and So Delicious at frothing even when cold. Score!
And what’s better, I had plenty of energy and a great time paddling (flatwater lake. I don’t do rivers).
I think there will be many more cold matcha lattes in my future now that I know I can successfully whip one up and drink it down in 5 min. flat!
I’ve dried two different matches of this grade, pure and this one. They are very different. We’re pure is more buttery, domatcha is more grassy. Domatcha froths up very well considering that I keep it in the fridge. I love the smell and taste of this tea, and I mean love. The fact that it’s easier to find, aka do not have to order online, helps, but the tea itself I like better. It has a wonderful green color, and a very earthy, elemental, almost velvety texture and weight. The taste is grassy, a little bit buttery, and fresh.
Up next I’m trying aiyas matcha, will be buying ths tea again and again.
The other matcha teas that I’ve tried were to sour when made without milk (I love matcha milk and shakes). This is the only one that I can drink alone like this. It’s just slightly sour and that could be because I didn’t let the water cool down a bit. It whisked perfectly, no chunks.
Takes like quality green tea. Really leaves the green tea taste in my mouth for a long time. Longer than plain green tea. So it’s more aromatic. I’m really not an expert in matchas but I do like this one. I’d love it with milk too I’m sure of it…
Had to break this in right away. http://www.breakawaymatcha.com/products/matcha-creamers.html Literally, moments after it arrived today, I was frothing matcha in it. The ceramic was still warm from its overland journey from sunny CA to possibly equally sunny NC. I may have let out a squeal of delight when the big brown truck slowed in front of the neighbor’s, but then stopped in front of my house! Me? Me!
I will try to write more (possibly an “online place” review later) but overall the entire ordering/shipment/product from Breakaway Matcha is top notch (although I only ordered this, not their actual matcha tea, but I
probably definitely will in the future).
I thought I was being ripped off for paying $30 for this little tin. But I enjoyed every cup of milk tea I made with this. When I used up the whole tin, I decided to find cheaper alternatives so I bought a few ounces from a local coffee-and-tea shop. It was a mistake! What a horrifying experience! Now I use it for baking instead. I have learned that you really get what you pay for in terms of matcha.
I love this tea~ I have been drinking DoMatcha once to twice daily now for two years. I believe in it’s benefits as I have Rheumatoid Athritis and use to have a very high cholesterol and triglycerides. After drinking this tea (the only thing different was also Reichi mushrooms) my TG count fell from over 400 to 157!!
It tastes earthy and lovely just by itself. I love the whisking of it….it truly is a wonderful tea!!
So if you let the water boil and don’t want to wait for it to cool, is it ok to just add some cool water to the mug and top it off with boiling water? That’s what I did with this and it tastes fine.
It’s been kind of a weird day. I feel kind of like I’m in a dream. Is this real life? Anyway, it’s a soothing comforting tea. It’s not complicated. It’s just good. That’s all I need today. Tasty.
