I held off on trying this one until I was brave and since I was feeling squirrelly (Did you see my previous post? I’m giving away tea!) I thought I would belly-up to the matcha bar and try it today!
Pu-erh matcha. Ok. Here-goes!
The matcha powder looks just like cocoa-powder. It doesn’t have a heavy aroma like I thought it would which is fine. I only just one scoop of this powder for my first go around and really – I think that is all I needed!
Once I added water – it didn’t foam or bubble like other matchas but I’m not basing my opinions on that. The liquid is the darkest-of-dark, tho, much like a tar-black in color.
The aroma is a subtle pu-erh scent. Thankfully.
The taste is silky and velvety and very strong considering the amount (or lack there of) I added to the water or the water I added to the powder depending on which way you look at it – I guess.
But the actual TASTE is rather nice. I like this one much more than I anticipated! And chalk-full of B Vitamins, Calcium, and folic acid – that’s always a PLUS.
