This was pleasant surprise.
I took this tea bag with same thoughts about last ones. It won’t be tasty, it will be maybe very spicy, it will be hardly any good tea base.
NONE OF ABOVE
I used even warmer water than they recommend. On the bag is 100°C, I used 90°C, they have on website 75-80°C.
Hardly any matcha? Well, it is in paper bag and some green tea dust is actually going off the bag. So, some matcha is apparently in. It was very spice present too, when dry.
I put the bag in the cup, let it in for minute and half (yes, that short — mostly because of higher temperature and I did not wanted too strong, buttery cuppa)
It was mostly cloves I noticed, but as well ginger and bit of cinnamon. The base was present too! Especially it was quite grassy and not buttery at all. There was little dust of matcha on the bottom, so I was whisking the cup with a teaspoon.
I won’t classify it as a matcha actually. But as green tea with chai? Pleasant surprise!
On the other news:
My granma is going home today afternoon. Actually in the time I am writing this line, she will be in our car and my brother drives home!
