A friend bought a package of these, and gifted them to me. It came with a mug that indicates how “work ready” I am based on how much of the mug is gone. Cute!
I tried the tea while in the office the other day. It was surprisingly good, but very sweet. Almost as sweet as a regular full strength latte at starbucks. Too much for me!
Looking at the ingredients (all the things that shouldn’t go in a “healthy” drink including hydrogenated oils), I expected a mug of fake matcha flavouring. Except it was actually pretty accurate; a melted hot version of matcha ice-cream. Not the super creamy ice-cream where the flavour is more of a background note, but the kind where your mouth kinda puckers from the dryness in the matcha powder.
I don’t think I will ever be able to consume all of what my friend gave me. While uberly yummy, it is just too sugary for my tastes. Maybe I can find a way to use it up in cooking? baking? I’ve used regular matcha powder in baking, but with all the extra ingredients here I’m not sure how it would work
