Well I figured if there was ever a matcha for me to "branch out with: it would be the Caramel Matcha. Since I am in love with the caramel matcha, I decided to try a different base to see how it would compare with the regular matcha. Not wanting to go TOO crazy, I thought i’d start with the 50/50 and maybe work my way through all of the options on the one type of Matcha.
As usual, I picked the Classic Matcha with Robust Flavouring which I find works out pretty damn good with most of the matcha flavours that I’ve tried except for the fruit base. Those need a softer flavouring (so far anyway).
So, what to say about the 50/50 base? Well, as it’s only a split between green and white there isn’t a HUGE difference between the two. What i did fine though, was that the white base seemed to bring out the creaminess of the caramel just a bit more. It frothed just as nicely as the green base as well. Again, this matcha is heavenly delicious caramel delight. This is now one of my favourite lattes as the evenings are cooling off. I’m looking forward to getting a chance to try this out with the black base!
If you’re looking to purchase this Matcha I strongly recommend it! You can find it here (www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/caramel-matcha.html). While you’re at it, pick up a tin or two as they make storing your matcha sooooo much easier!
