Holiday Tea-son! Fourth tea from my advent calendar. This is not one of B&B’s matcha’s I’ve had the chance to try yet, so I’m happy to get a sample. I mixed the matcha in 100ml 175F water in my frother, moved it to a mug, then mixed 200ml vanilla almond milk on the warm setting in my frother. It smells nice… like sweet gingersnap cookies.
It’s very sweet. I’m getting a lot of nutmeg and cinnamon spice notes that are very forward in the cup, with a sugary, graham cracker crust sort of flavor overall. It’s very creamy, and the spice lingers on the tongue with a pleasant warmth, but doesn’t cause any unpleasant heat. I like it, but then, I like flavored matcha. I don’t taste any of the base matcha, though; the grassiness is pretty much muted under the flavors here, so if you don’t like that, you aren’t going to enjoy this one.
