Welp, I tried the Kale matcha as a shot so I figured I’d just complete the trio and try all three ‘new’ Matcha flavours as the preparation style I thought they’d all be best served as. For this one, that meant making it as a latte.
We’ve been trying to learn how to make latte art/leaf designs in store so I also took advantage of making this as a latte for myself to practice; I failed pretty hard though. If anyone has any tips, I’m all ears!
As far as the flavour goes, I was actually worried this would be too rich/sweet for me but I actually found I liked it a lot better as a latte than I did when I had it straight. That’s one of the nice things about milk/lattes – it’s great at tempering flavour so for the teas we sell with a lot of pre added sweeteners I find it mellows out those notes which I’d otherwise find kind of cloying. That’s not to say it _wasn’t sweet though – just more appropriately so. Otherwise, tasted like creamy maple!
I think I was pretty spot on when I said this one would work really well as a latte.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
