Merry Christmas to all my Steepster friends who celebrate!
Though I don’t observe, I do have the day off work with everyone else and wanted to spend the day sipping on some festively flavored teas. When I was looking through my spreadsheet and saw this I went, “Oh ya, I don’t have to make a smoothie out of all those matchas, I could just, you know, make a matcha latte!” What a concept, right?!
Whisked up 1 tsp of this with 1 cup plain oat milk in the milk frother. It integrated nicely and had a decent layer of foam, which I topped with a pulverized candy cane I got from work. Smells very sweet and minty!
Ah, I think this is the “creamy” element I was just craving last night but missing from the Plum Deluxe herbal… it has a brisk and refreshing peppermint taste, a strong sweetness, but because of the milk, a thick and satisfying creaminess that somehow just makes “sweet” + “mint” work so well for me. This is hitting the spot! I’m not tasting the matcha itself, but considering I didn’t use any water in my prep method and added an extra coating of sugar on top, I’m not surprised… but I’m still happy with how it turned out. It’s like having a peppermint cocoa, with the chocolate missing. (Hmm, maybe I’ll toss a little cocoa powder in with my next cup? Because that sounds nice too…)
