These smoothies have me flying through these matchas. And my greek yogurt which is sadly gone now so no more smoothies until I do the groceries. Also, thankfully I have the giant thing of honey b/c I have been rather heavy-handed with it in these smoothies as of late…as evidenced by the distinct honey flavor in the last couple of smoothies. I guess that happens when you don’t really measure.
What’s interesting is that with each different matcha, the smoothies have been distinctly different. However, the flavor of the matcha doesn’t come through clearly. Like, if I gave someone all three in a blind taste test, I think it would be clear that there were 3 different flavors but not entirely clear that those flavors were mocha, berries and cream, and blueberry. For instance, this matcha doesn’t immediately scream blueberry to me but it is definitely not as sweet as the berries and cream. Every now and then I get pops of berry, leaning to blueberry but tbh that might just be because I knew I used blueberry matcha. Nevertheless, all three have been delicious and given these matchas are like 3 years old, I am happy that they are contributing anything at all.
In other news, a week ago, one of my uber drivers asked me if I thought winter was over. I thought he was just making small talk so I was like I doubt it b/c this is Canada and there is always a snowfall or storm after the weather warms up. And his response was “when is the snow coming?” as if I were a weather reporter who had this information readily available. And then he started telling me how he wanted to get his winter tires off and when did I think he should do that? Uhhhh…I’m a passenger in an uber…what makes you think I would know? Anyways, I basically told him I didn’t really know but if it were me I would wait a little longer. That ended up being solid advice b/c yesterday somehow went from 7 degrees and raining to my entire apartment complex just being covered in snow in like an hour. So that was weird but also typical of London/Ontario/Canada.
