Recent Tasting Notes
On first impression, this very green tea not only looked like, but even smelled like grass. I was slightly sceptical. The variation I tasted was sweetened, but still had a lingering bitterness, not powerful, but similar to the taste I experience after mowing a lawn on a hot day. Everything about this reminds me of grass, yet somehow I find this enjoyable.
Flavors: Grass, Sweet
It’s not bad but I think ceremonial matcha should be better than this. Well, I’ve never had a really good expensive stuff before but from the 4 different matcha I have so far. This one would be 3 in the rank in terms of price and how much I like the tea. The colour is good. The flavour seems to be on the mild side.
Have been making banana/melon/yogurt/milk shakes with it all summer. Drank it like that or frozen and more like icecream. Absolutely love the shakes – and peeps around me loved them too.
Matcha itself without milk i can’t drink. Bitter. Idk if that’s normal with matcha tea or it’s just this one that’s like that? Even a sip of milk changes it completely to delicious.
I ordered more :D Hooked I am on Matcha NaNa Milk shake at the moment – and i spoiled some friends with it too. What i do is pretty much:
1,5 tsp matcha
few oz’s of milk
little bit of lemon juice
ice (almost as much as milk)
and a little bit of sugar (not necessarily)
I usually stir everything else first in the shaker, then add and stir the matcha powder in the end.
Well when i got my DoMatcha reward tin and realized i loooove matcha latte i got scared i’d run out of it too fast. And matcha cant be bought in my country. Sad i know. Ordering little DoMatcha tins was kinda too pricey so i went to look for some more affordable decent replacement. And I found it. This was 20$ for 100g of matcha plus a gift sampler of some green tea (title is in japanese – having issues figuring out what it could be).
I made a latte and it’s almost as good as DoMatcha. Maybe it’s just slightly less delicate and smooth. But really barely. For me it’s almost as good. And that means yummm.
So see, ebay can be good too ;)
I also got the tea delivered in just 2 weeks from Japan – and shipping was free.
