#advantageddon Day Four – 1/5
I’m come so close to ordering this matcha probably near a dozen times; it’s one of those flavours that I’m basically positive that I’m not going to like but that I simultaneously feel like I just have to experience it!
It feels cathartic to finally be able to say I’ve tried it now. I made it up as a matcha shot first thing in the morning – very thick, very green and vegetal smelling. I could see the sediment in the shot glass as well; the DT Kale Matcha from a few years back did that really badly too; the kale just has a higher density and the grind isn’t as fine so the suspension settles so quickly.
Taste wise, I didn’t hate this but I didn’t love it either. However, as I said above I also really didn’t expect to like it at all so even just not hating it was still a pretty significant win. I couldn’t really taste the kale in the blend, at the concentration of a matcha shot all that vegetal, umami and bitter flavours just fade together. However, I certainly felt the heat of the chilli afterwards. Oof, that has a decent amount of heat to it!
Certainly an interesting way to start my advent teas today…
