Backlog: This afternoon, my daughter and I went to Fred Meyer and as I was passing the Peet’s Coffee & Tea shop that they have in the store, I noticed a sign that advertised their Raspberry and their Vanilla Matcha Lattes. I couldn’t resist … it just sounded way too good.
I ordered the Raspberry, but then I asked if they could make it a Raspberry Vanilla latte, and they did that for me. It was a yummy, creamy, smooth experience – a little light on the Matcha flavor as it sort of hid behind the raspberry and vanilla syrups added. It was a bit sweeter than I typically like my Matcha, but, it was still a very refreshing drink, and I could taste the Matcha … even though it wasn’t as strong as I think I would like it to be. In the future, I would probably want them to use a little less syrup, although i don’t usually indulge in Matcha lattes from the coffee shops because I’d rather save the five bucks and go home and make my own Matcha so that I can eliminate the sugar added.
Not bad … but not something I’d drink daily.
