I am almost out of this :(. I think I only have one more serving left after this cup but I must say I am throughly enjoying my cup – I think this is my best milk to water ratio yet.

I loved this. Tasty, creamy, slightly sweet, great balance with the matcha. I can see this one turning into a guilty pleasure. Delicious!

OK, I have GOT to get on the matcha wagon soon—these all sound so good. Southwest Missouri doesn’t have a clue what loose leaf tea is, let along matcha :)

You should get some. It really isn’t expensive and worth the experience. If you want pure matcha try Do Matcha.

Today I made Lupicia’s Caramael Matcha au Lait mix like this:
1. Two teaspoons of matcha powder in the cup
2. Cup half-filled with hot water
3. Whisk stir whisk stir.
4. Fill the rest of the cup with 2% milk (because i don’t like drinking hot hot tea, the cold milk cooled the drink to the perfect temperature)
5. Whisk stir whisk stir.
6. GULP GULP YUM YUM.

It was pretty good. Kinda creamy. I can’t say that I get a strong sense of ‘caramel’ from the drink. Just green tea, with perhaps a hint of burnt sugar. Maybe I put too much milk in, and it was drowned out? But that doesn’t seem right, since the tea was pretty thick. shrug

ha ha this sounds delicious… but too bad it sorta flopped…
have you tried adding soy milk instead? it tends to be lighter or rice milk?

I’ll have to pick some up next time at the market, it seems worth a shot!

jessica

woot. i know how it feels when you flop..

I totally should have sifted this because it took forever stirring and trying to smash up matcha clumps but the good thing is that it took so long that the hot milk cooled to easy driving temperature by the time I was done. I used soy milk and it was soooooo good but maybe too thick so maybe I should water it down with a bit of water next time. It was a little clumpy at the end since the matcha settled so the matcha taste was really strong at the end. So I need to mix well next time… Or I could’ve added some hot water to draw it out.

I’ve been continuing my matcha smoothies for breakfast… I used to not be a “breakfast person” but I kinda like that I’m getting my “tea and breakfast” in one this way, and I’m really liking how I feel with the sort of “mellow yet strong” caffeine hit I’m getting from the matcha compared to just making a warm cuppa (not that I don’t still love a warm cuppa).

I was getting tired of my “Lime in the Coconut” smoothies I’ve had for a few days in a row now trying to sip down my Coconut Matcha and just wanted to change it up this morning, and for whatever reason, was craving caramel apple as a flavor profile. I had this matcha, and it’s really old, past the best buy date, and in a package I hadn’t even cut open yet. SIGH. And this is my eternal problem…

Normally I just dump the powder into the blender but I whisked it up with the vanilla oat milk into a latte first this morning to sample separate from the smoothie, since I had never tried it before. (It meant more dishes to be cleaned, but MATCHA SCIENCE!) I normally prepare my matcha as lattes (as I find it too bitter for me typically in just water) but these “matcha au lait” mixes that Lupicia used to make are made to be latte mixes (at least from the instructions). There was definitely a sweet grassy matcha flavor present, but also a very sweet candy-esque note… caramel, though? I’m not entirely sure I got an overwhelming impression of caramel, though I could see what they were going for… maybe a subtle hint of a caramel flavor? Definitely something sweet and creamy, and there is quite a bit of sugar/milk in the mix for this one. I definitely would not drink this not prepared as a latte (as the mix suggests), but think it is fine. It is sweet so I don’t have problems with “matcha bitterness,” but at the same time, doesn’t have a flavor that overwhelms that “grassy matcha taste” either. On the other hand, it isn’t my favorite flavored matcha I’ve tried by a longshot, either. I guess it just feels a little lackluster?

The smoothie was good though! It consisted of the matcha latte (minus the few sips I took for MATCHA SCIENCE!), a green apple, half a cup of dates, some ice, and a big glob of caramel sauce (because health conscious I am not). It hit the “sweet/tart green caramel apple” I was wanting quite well!

Well, that is certainly a caramel apple smoothie!

Sipdown! (27 | 301)

Another one from the sampler. Prepared in the same way, cold with 150ml of liquid, mostly oat milk.

It’s perfectly pleasant but it doesn’t taste like caramel at all to me? I do taste the milk powder, which adds some extra creaminess. I’m also finding it slightly more bitter than the plain version somehow, but could be a difference in how I prepared it…

Anyway, it makes a nice enough iced matcha latte but it’s not caramel IMO.

It’s starting to get warm out, and I just couldn’t face a steamy hot beverage this morning, so a nice cold glass of iced matcha latte sounded like a good plan. Super easy to make, and the tiny clumps of powder ended up dissolving into the milk with no problem. Lightly sweet, creamy, nice matcha flavor, and quite satisfying, although I couldn’t detect any caramel notes. Not a lot of the mix comes in the bag, so I may end up going through this rather quickly.

2 tsp

This is thick and very vegetal. It is also incredibly sweet with an aftertaste of caramel. Thank you to both Dustin and jump62359 for sharing but I think the rest will be passed along for others to try as this is just not for me.

Sil

is it just really sweet?

VariaTEA

Overly sweet and incredibly grassy.

It’s freakin 11:30am AND I JUST WOKE UP.
Dude. This is my coffee in the morning okay. Nice and perfectly creamy with my vanilla almond milk! A sad sipdown, but next time I take a trip to Lupicia, I’ll definitely pick up a pack of their other flavours :)
