I wanted to get orange matcha to mix it with the cola matcha. I don’t know if many of you are familiar with Spezi, a mix of cola and orange soda popular in Germany…I love it so much, but I hate drinking soda.
First I figured though I should try it the orange matcha on its own. It just took me forever, since I ordered it so it’d come just in time for my weekend vacation last week. I tried it immediately, but only drank one sip while in the midst of packing, so I had nothing really to say about it.
I’m not typically a fan of orange flavored stuff. I’d take a blood orange over your usual orange every time. I don’t like orange flavored candy very much, and that’s of course what this tastes like. Orange flavored candy.
I added agave and milk to it to try to see if maybe then I could transform it into sort of a “creamsicle” taste but it just tastes like smoother candy. While it’s not my favorite, I can definitely drink it. Because in the end, orange candy, while not preferable, is always edible.
Tomorrow’s test: a mix with the cola matcha for spezi matcha!
I can also see this being really good as the matcha in a smoothie. I picked up a bag of frozen mixed berries yesterday for smoothies and out of all my matchas so far, this one is definitely the winner to go in there.
