Matchaaaaa! My local DT finally had some in stock, I was so happy! I eagerly got a cup (as I bought my new pink flowered bubble teapot!)
And then it got busy at work, and I didn’t get a chance to grab anything to eat until three hours later, so I drank about half of this on an empty stomach. Never again. I was flushed and dizzy and hyper and blegh. That energy boost was nearly the end of me.
I asked them to add agave, and so they did. To the bottom of the cup. And then they poured the matcha on top and it didn’t mix in until a few hours later when I swirled the bitter cup to try and, well, make it smoother.
It was bitter, true, but I saw great potential in it and I am eagerly awaiting my matcha set from Teavana…should it ever arrive. But that’s another story. I see many, many matcha smoothies in my future.
