Ok, so I probably tried this a stupid way for it being my first time having it since the naunces of flavour were lost. I’ll definitely revisit and make sure the next time I try it is slightly more proper and done in a way I can break down and taste the specific flavours of the tea.But that said this was incredibly fun and tasty, and really what I’m getting at is…
Recently, I received a cookbook themed around matcha as a gift – there are actually quite a few recipes in it that I want to try out (a huge part of why I redeemed my free 50g on fancy ass matcha from DT) but since my cooking skills are crap the easier for me to make was salted matcha popcorn! So basically:
2 tsp of matcha
1 tbsp of butter
1 tsp of salt
All melted down and mixed together and then sprinkled/splashed over some fresh air popped popcorn! Holy balls it was such a pretty, gorgeous bright green colour! The taste was surprisingly great too; I actually don’t like salty food that much (cripes; pretzels are my worst nightmare) but it worked with the popcorn/matcha because it was like a very seaweed/kelpy vegetal snack but light and fluffy! Seriously, it was a strange juxtaposition overall but very tasty! I half believed after trying this I wouldn’t want to again but I’d totally revisit this!
Matcha popcorn and a movie night? Sign me up!
Holding off on rating until I can rate the ‘pure’ tea.
