Pulled this matcha sampler for my breakfast smoothie for tomorrow. Whisked it in vanilla oat milk, and the aroma definitely nails a green caramel apple!
Mmm, I like this one, but green apple is one of my favorite flavor profiles, and I don’t seem to find it enough. I’m definitely tasting crisp, green apple, with a bit of a sweeter caramel note that follows, which I think has been brought out more by my choice of using a sweet vanilla flavored milk. Maybe not the most distinct caramel note I’ve tasted, but I can tell it is there. And I do taste the matcha this time around! The green apple is still the most dominant flavor, but there is that grassy/vegetal/umami matcha note beneath it, and the two actually compliment each other very well.
Put the matcha latte into a smoothie in the morning, with a few cubes of pumpkin and a few frozen bits of green apple and sweet potato. The pumpkin is present, but the green apple note is still very strong in the mixed smoothie (I usually don’t “taste” the apple in my pumpkin/apple/sweet potato mix, just the pumpkin). I did use the whole sampler tin of matcha from B&B which has probably helped oomph up the flavor.
