4 Tasting Notes

464 tasting notes

Sample #4
Powder Color: Bright green
Powder Smell: Seaweed
Powder Texture: Fine, slightly clumpy
Liquor Color: Olive green, froths up well
Tasting Notes: Few to no clumps. Darkly vegetal & not overly bitter, but has a sight metallic taste. After milk & honey added, it’s exceptionally smooth & creamy.

Sample#5
Powder Color: Light olive
Powder Smell: Vegetal
Powder Texture: Fine, not too clumpy
Liquor Color: dark green
Tasting Notes: Not so frothy, but mixed well. Tastes of bitter dark greens- Bitter even after milk & honey added, but metallic taste is gone. Slight chalkiness, but unpleasant.

Sample #6:
Powder color: Similar to 4, light olive
Powder texture: Very fine, not clumpy
Powder smell: light seaweed
Liquor color: Dark camo green, mixes well
Tasting Notes: Dark bitter greens, but surprisngly very little metallic bite. Chalky to the taste. With milk added- pleasantly vegetal- like pea soup! No chalk after adding more milk & honey, however I can see the Matcha starting to separate.

Sample #7:
Powder Color: Bright electric green
Powder texture: Super fine, slightly clumpy
Powder smell: Hay w/a little seaweed
Liquor color: Dark Green, but not olive. Took longer to mix in.
Tasting Notes: Bright, fresh, spring greens with just a touch of bitterness. Coppery Bright aftertaste w/a bit Of sweetness. Lovely fresh quality to it once milk & honey added. Slight chalkiness is the only distractor.

Sample #8
Powder Color: Similiar to #7, even brighter
Powder Texture: Similar to #7
Powder smell: hay & spring greens
Liquor color: A lovely emerald, a very fine froth- the teensiest bubbles! Very pretty matcha & I admit I’m having fun whisking this one.
Tasting Notes: Powerfully bitter on the first taste, But not metallic. After milk & honey, a pleasant Collared greens taste. Not as chalky as I would have thought- it stays mixed in. Might need to play around with the proportions when preparing this one. This one has some potential!

JustJames

you’ve been very busy!

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Yeah and I’m now falling asleep from all the caffeine!

JustJames

lol, it does that to me at night too…. or have you had a crash? (in which case there’s a great excuse for puerh) =0D

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Too much caffeine at once always makes me sleepy!

JustJames

most people just don’t sleep…. i’m a serial contrarian so that rule doesn’t apply to me, lol!

I don’t think this is where I posted my original sample note (can’t find it but then Steepster eats my notes often. I hope they’re tasty).
So I have a ton of this left over, and had promised my friends a tea mocktail. It was easy enough to do! Matcha, OJ, and some fizzy water. Perrier, but I used no-name last time, at home, and it was fine.
I was worried that they would all hate it. But to my surprise, everyone asked for more!
My friend’s boyfriend is Japanese, and knows matcha well enough to offer a true critique… I was most concerned about his opinion haha.
In the end, he delivered kindof a compliment. Apparently the tea was how you would expect OJ and Matcha to taste, only far better. Hey, I’ll take that as a win :D
This was a brunch event, so a few people added prosecco, and they said it was pretty good. I added some bluberry wine and that was a great pairing as well, though the berryness dominated the blend somewhat.
Ahhhh. Tea shared makes for a happy day!!

Also? I now have a giant tea thermos courtesy of the gift steal. Oh and my gift caused the recipient to literally squeal, which made me pretty gleeful heheeee (a micro drone. $25 at walmart!!)

Evol Ving Ness

The day sounds like a total win for you and everyone involved! Yay!

mrmopar

You did well for yourself!

Indigobloom

@Evol It really was a win!! I’m still riding the high :P

@mrmopar Definitely agreed on that one. I won the good day lottery it seems

mrmopar

:) indeed you did. I bet the BF was happy! Matcha is hard to prepare.

Indigobloom

@mrmopar, it was definitely a pain to make so many small bowls of it and pour it into the jug. Or maybe I just need a bigger whisk :D
