Bird & Blend Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 1
Happy December, everyone! Yay, it’s advent calendar time! ❤
This matcha happens to be in single-serve stick form. The stick seemed to contain just under a teaspoon of matcha, so I prepared my matcha milk with just under 8 ounces of soy milk.
This is very tasty! It’s grassy and sweet, and very smooth with no bitterness. There’s a small hint of umami as well. The strength of flavor is much better than their flavored matchas I’ve tried, which is nice. Too bad this one was only a single serving!
So I also have a Bonne Maman jam advent calendar! And since I’ll be drinking these matchas in the morning, I’ll be having my daily jam on toast as well and adding it to these notes. This is just for fun, the rating and flavors still all apply only to the matcha.
So today’s Bonne Maman jam is 3 Citrus Fruits (3 Agrumes) spread. I’m not generally a big fan of marmalade, as I find it too bitter. But I’ll try it with an open mind! The three citrus fruits included are orange, lemon, and grapefruit. There are pieces of peel mixed in as well.
Wow, it’s quite zingy from the grapefruit! It is quite bitter though, so not something I could see myself eating often. But the citrus flavor is nice and bright.
Flavors: Creamy, Grass, Smooth, Sweet, Umami
