Happy weekend! :D
I have a packet of this that came in one of my Bokksu Japanese snack subscription boxes. I believe it’s a powdered sencha?
In any case, I prepared it as I would a matcha milk. First observation: it does not dissolve as well as matcha. Perhaps it’s less finely ground?
Wow, it’s so savory! Definitely more on the side of umami rather than sweet. It’s also a bit bitter and a touch grainy.
I added a squeeze of some maple agave I had in the cupboard. Yummy, the maple goes so well with the savory flavors and the agave adds a bit of sweetness to bring it more into balance.
This as certainly interesting. I have a bit of the powder left over, so next time I’ll try it as the intended iced tea.
Flavors: Bitter, Spinach, Umami, Vegetal
