1596 Tasting Notes
These were displayed on the checkout counter at Paru, and I couldn’t help sniffing the sample as I checked out. Immediately had to purchase, based solely on the smell. These little coins smell like caramel- so delicious!
I steeped one up today, and the flavor does not disappoint. Tastes like caramel!
Flavors: Caramel, Caramelized Sugar
I recently drove down to San Diego for a concert, and had to finally make a stop at Paru! Decided on their La Jolla location, as they carry house-milled matcha. Decided to try out a cup to go vs. buying some to take home.
Went with iced/no sweetener. It was lovely! definitely fresh tasting, with some notes of cacao. Overall a delicious matcha, and it was so fun to be able to watch the mill working behind the counter.
The best part of the experience was how incredibly nice everyone at Paru was. So, so nice and welcoming. Highly recommend visiting if you’re ever in the San Diego area.
