8oz of almond milk with two chasaku scoops of sifted matcha (I finally measured about how much I’m getting with the chasaku and it’s around 3/4 tsp for two of my scoops). Frothed with a hand frother though I’m seriously beginning to consider an electric heater/frother after I burned three batches of milk over the weekend.
This smells very sweet and fruity—almost cloyingly so but not quite to the gross out level. It tastes like a creamier, toned down version of its scent which is nice to drink. This is a matcha where I taste mostly just the flavor instead of mostly the flavor of the milk I’m drinking with the matcha more of a second note. I think this is one I’ll eventually try as an iced latte. I’m not getting any bitterness or much of a vegetal spin at the end of the sip like I have with some of the other flavored ones.
As the cup cools to warm instead of hot-warm the vegetal/mathca flavor is more pronounced but never overwhelms the fruity fig taste.
Royal grade matcha, distinctive flavoring.
