Day 5 – Matcha Advent
There is little to no foam to speak of. I’m not sure if it’s the mini whisk that came with the calendar not being up to the job or if it’s just the Matcha. Perhaps because it’s a blend it just doesn’t foam properly? The third option is me but I am not a new hand at Matcha making and haven’t had problems before with foam.
Flavour is orange and it’s nicer than the lemon one from yesterday. While it’s orange peel and waxy I also taste sweetness and something pulpy which makes for a wonderful after taste. Some astringency again but not much and it works well with the orange peel zesty tones anyway.
It’s also somewhat creamy and very easy to drink. Some dryness in the after taste about half way down my bowl.
I enjoyed this blend though I wasn’t sure I would after yesterdays Lemon Matcha. Even though I don’t have anything to compare this particular flavour with I would still say it was pleasant. Not sure it would be on my to purchase list but something I would happily drink again.
