I made a smoothie with this today, inspired by Amy Oh!
Except… It wasn’t a very good smoothie. Kinda bland. Too much almond milk and banana covered up the other flavours, esp the matcha! I threw in cherries, which changed the colour but not so much flavour or consistency. So I added a peach and it was more of the same. Oh well, I still have my tea high!
Next time, only half a banana. Maybe some Stevia?

I usually add a whole banana to mine. I also like pineapple and mango!

Mmmm mango! I used what was handy at the moment. Next time I’ll go shopping with smoothies in mind :P

My fave smoothies are plain yogurt + a banana + frozen peaches/mangos or fresh strawberries. Plus a little OJ to thin things out. Banana is pretty prominent, but for me, a whole (ripe) banana adds enough sweetness that I don’t need to add any additional sweetener!

I haven’t made a matcha smoothie yet, but I think it would fit in just fine.

Indigobloom

oh I’d much rather make a smoothie without banana. but it adds that extra bulk/base. I’m not a big banana fan of late. In a smoothie I don’t mind as long as it doesn’t dominate too much.

I’m slightly intolerant to a protein in dairy so sometimes I feel like avoiding it. Other days it is more manageable…

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
