So because I am very, very much not a morning person I have reverted back into my old morning routine of prepping all my stuff the night before (lunch, shower, work clothing, travel mug & tea that I intend to steep for the commute, etc.) so that I can wake up as late as humanly possible before I have to boogie on out of my apartment to catch the metro. I’ve gotten it down to about fifteen minutes awake and in the apartment before I leave to walk to the metro station…
Part of this “morning routine” now include bringing everything I need to make breakfast with me to the office and making breakfast there and eating it at my desk. Ultra efficiency! A few days ago, breakfast of choice was oatmeal – and because I’m in a lab surrounded by tea I thought it would be interesting to try adding matcha into the oatmeal and see if that made it better. I think I may have done this in the past, but more with “sprinkling” the matcha on top and less with mixing it directly into the oatmeal? I’m not totally sure though – don’t quote me on that.
I was having peach oatmeal though, so I thought either a fruity matcha would work well or the vanilla matcha – and the first thing I saw was the sunset matcha which seemed to make sense in my head. I mean, it’s basically a strawberry matcha and strawberries and peaches go together, right? It actually did taste really nice as a pairing, I was just clearly a little heavy handed with how much matcha I added in (three perfect matcha spoons of it). Like, the strawberry notes were just so strong. I think two spoons would have been the perfect balance, actually!
But 10/10 in terms of concept. Would t-oatmeal again.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
