2042 Tasting Notes
I added 1 tsp to my Green Monster smoothie for extra energy, because I’ve been dragging lately!
My basic recipe is:
8oz milk (almond, coconut, dairy, etc.)
1/2 banana, frozen
2 large handfuls baby spinach (about 1/4 of a bag, or 1/2 cup packed)
1 carton (~6oz) low/non-fat greek yogurt (Plain, vanilla, w/fruit, etc.)
Blend until smooth. Serve in a mason jar with a few cubes of ice, and a straw. Feel healthy!

I swear, the first time I tried it, I could barely taste the matcha, but now after a few days of letting it sit and trying it again, it seems more present. Maybe the dark chocolate needed to breathe, like wine? Anyway, it’s good, but I recall liking Vosges (no longer available) green tea chocolate bar more for it’s more in-your-face flavor. The other non-tea “It’s Chocolate” bars I’ve tried are pretty good though, especially the Pina Colada. I may need to put in another order, or just find time to visit Angelina’s Tea shop in person again!
I tried using blackstrap molasses as a sweetener in this, and the tea is strong enough to stand up to it! Hmm I wonder how molasses would be in the gingerbread chai I still haven’t opened…?
