First time ever I did this one up with only milk, ice and matcha. Mostly because, well, finally, I have access to some fresh ice… which is not a good thing because now my
fibre fruit intake is in danger! oh dear. Yes, this is really REALLY good folks. and now I’m gonna hafta go through every one of my matchas and try them this way! which means I can’t open up the new ones I have waiting in my cupboard. le sighs.
As for why I chose this one today… well I had an irresistible craving after trying that matchaccino yesterday. I’m not sure which one I prefer. The caramel didn’t have the depth I wanted, but the ‘cino didn’t have the caramel intensity. Hmmm!! something to think about :)
(bumping the rating a few points!)
Oh, also! I had the last of a darjeeling from Tea Emporium but it was an unlabeled gift and I’m not sure which one specifically, to review it under. So… I’ll just say here that it was pretty ok, even though it’s kinda old! a really nice honey note emerged on the finish, with a hint of bitterness that I didn’t mind so much, because of the honey. Go figure. It went really well “iced” (ie, cooled down with a few ice cubes!!)
On another, non tea related event… Happy Victoria Day Weekend to any Canadian’s out there!! I have some fun stuff planned, after all the craziness of my neighbour’s flood! phew. Anyhow… fireworks anyone???
