I know, another caramel matcha tasting note today from me? Normally I wouldn’t bother but I wanted to share my recent concotion… Caramel Matcha Apple Cider.
So I just picked up a half gallon of apple cider at a local farm stand, and as I was looking at it it dawned on me: I bet that would go good with caramel matcha! Like a caramel apple. Mmmm. I didn’t want the cider to overwhelm the matcha so I made my matcha with 1tsp matcha, 4oz hot water, and 4oz hot cider. It is sweet and tart and caramelly and matcha-y and delicious. It’s tarter than I expected it to be, actually; I assumed that it would be very sweet because cider is so normally sweet, but something about the matcha is bringing out the tartness. It works because the caramel offsets it a bit. I can definitely see myself doing this again.
