Home – 9:30 AM
Ugh, Monday. Always creeping up on me when I’m minding my own business, binging Netflix on the couch with my knitting and drinking copious amounts of tea… ;)
Anyway, matcha milk of the morning! Prepared with 1 teaspoon of matcha to 8 ounces of soy milk and slightly sweetened.
The flavoring on these Adagio matcha blends is far subtler than I expected. In fact, for the chocolate version I couldn’t taste it at all. For this blend, I can taste it slightly, but I don’t understand why they were so restrained with it. Anyway, otherwise the matcha is grassy with a touch of marine. Like the other Adagio flavors, it’s more bitter than it needs to be. There’s just a hint of cinnamon apple flavor.
I guess I should try these prepared traditionally, to see if I can taste the flavoring more that way. I’m not sure I’ll be able to drink them that way, though, because if there’s still some bitterness when prepared with milk, I’m sure it will be much more prominent with water.
I’ll have to give that a try though, for science.
Flavors: Apple, Bitter, Cinnamon, Creamy, Grass, Marine
