Finally got more dish soap so now Smoothie Town is open again! (Why they gotta use up so many dishes?) Anyway, this was a new-to-me matcha so I whisked it up as a latte to sample first before adding the fruit and yogurt.
I recently switched from sweetened (vanilla) oat milk to regular oat milk because so many of my matchas were filled with sugar and it was just too much, but the last few B&B ones I’ve had have not been sweetened, and since I do find matcha a bit bitter on its own, I definitely think this particular latte would’ve benefited from the vanilla oat milk. It actually had a very vibrant, grassy matcha taste (but along with that, was just bitter enough that at least for my preferences, the latte would’ve needed some sweetening… which I didn’t add since I would be throwing it in a smoothie anyway). But I did get the flavor profile they were going for — there is a noticable peach note, and an even stronger cream/vanilla note, which was coming through even though my latte was a bit on the bitter side (and why I think vanilla oat milk would’ve made this one amazing).
Added it with peaches and some vanilla yogurt (there’s some sweetness!) in the blender and gave that a quick sample before stashing the rest for my breakfast tomorrow. Aaaaaaaaaaaah, there we go! Both the peaches and cream were taken over the top, and the bite from the bitter bite from the matcha itself was completely smoothed out. It was so good. Still a nice grassy element too, but sweet and tempered.
It’s no Nordic Berry Matcha, but enjoyable enough.
