Mastress Alita’s Monthly Sipdown Challenge
January 2022 → A latte

Made a matcha latte using this recipe: https://www.instagram.com/p/BbPf5RUHUsz/. Of course, there are so many other ingredients in this that I’m hesitant to even call it a matcha latte. It’s certainly green in color and flavor though. It’s also a little bitter, but I’m guessing that’s the ashwagandha and not the matcha. I used homemade coconut butter and I don’t think I blended it as well as I should have because I keep getting flecks of coconut in my mouth. It’s not bad or anything, just not texturally pleasing. I’m halfway in and I’m thinking I should have cut the recipe in half for this one because 16 ounces carries a whole lot of caffeine. I’m a bit sensitive. Overall, the flavor’s not bad and I can definitely taste the matcha. Probably not something I’d drink often, but it’s a nice change on occasion.

Flavors: Green

Preparation
1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

The eggnog matcha I made the other day with one and a half matcha spoons of matcha catapulted me to the mood. Delicious, but the caffeine buzz worried me.

I was thinking a teaspoon in 16 ounces of water wouldn’t be bad at all, but yeah it was a lot. I ended up putting the second half in the fridge to drink later today over ice.

I’m open to tea swaps and/or just sharing what’s in my tea cabinet! Please reach out if you see something I have that you’d like to try. I do my best to update my cupboard regularly.

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband, James, who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-49: This tea is not good, but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

50-69: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

70-79: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

80-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
