555 Tasting Notes
It’s September and Pumpkin everything is upon us. Seeing as how I don’t drink coffee I figured I would have to try a pumpkin tea something or another. I prefer my chai to be spicy. A bit of zip. This has chai flavor but for me it’s too sweet. Good base. Although I can barely taste it. Add a bit more zip and I think this would be a hit. Uh… you know… I’m not really sensing much pumpkin either… Or was the pumpkin just those candy pieces?
Had to pick up this blend during my first visit to their Chicago store on Division. Great store. Really wish I could have geeked out more but it was hot out and I was with my family.
Anyway. Very unique blend! The black tea comes out the more you steep it. Really an interesting blend. So much going on. Don’t even know where to begin.
Did you know the difference between vanilla and French vanilla is eggs? Had to look it up. They say french vanilla is a bit more camarel, floral, and custard like. I can see that now. This matcha brings out that flavor pretty well. Custard, definitely.
Cream. Vanilla of course.
Yea. I quite enjoy this one.
Used almond milk and mixed matcha with water.
I need some whip cream. Currently drinking this cold because it’s warm out. Just threw 6 oz in the blender followed by 1tsp of matcha. Great chocolate smell emits itself from the package. The taste is also much better then I was expecting. Oh man…. I just had a great thought! Mix this with the orange matcha. Oh that is so happening!
On a trip right now so have to brew the matcha in whatever fashion I can. Most of the time it involves dumping it into a small water bottle and shaking vigorously. This I brewed with hot water and stired with a plastic stir stick. Real fancy…
Definitely getting some hints of sunshine state oranges in there. Not as much…. Uh… Orange zing? As I thought there would be though.
