2041 Tasting Notes
Dry, this blend smells very strongly of cinnamon, but once brewed it mellows out a bit. Definitely reminiscent of the pumpkin pie I baked last night! I added 1/2 packet sugar in the raw, and 2 tsp milk, which further melded the flavors into something like pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top. Mmm. Maybe I will try it again tonight with some actual pie!
Happy Thanksgiving, Steepsters!
I ate too much today, especially corn (polenta for lunch, tamales and corn on the cob for dinner – what was I thinking?) and now I feel stuffed! Needed something to soothe my tummy and stimulate digestion. Ginger and peppermint FTW!
following DoMatcha’s guidelines: “For a more contemporary Matcha-Nog recipe, heat up 6 oz. of readymade Organic Eggnog available at your local natural food retailer, add a dash of nutmeg, and top it off with 1 tsp. of matcha pre-whisked into a froth. A splash of rum is optional!”
I used 1/2 tsp matcha, a combination of milk, almond milk, and eggnog (because I wanted fewer calories/less dairy), and no rum as it was the middle of the day ;-) Not bad!
I can really taste the black pepper today! Perfect with polenta & veg and tomato sauce for lunch.
Backlog: I made matcha lemonade yesterday.
8 oz Full Circle organic lemonade
1/4 tsp matcha
Used my aerolatte to mix because I’m lazy. it even frothed a bit! Served over ice.
This lemonade is so sweet it’s kinda gross :-/ Next time, more matcha, and maybe some water (2-4 oz) in place of some of the lemonade
Iced, this is a crazy color, due to the green tea/yerba mate blend. It’s an almost glowing yellow-green, very much like the color of mountain dew. But it’s also very refreshing. The flavors meld together nicely, and it does seem invigorating to the taste buds. :-)
