Another gift from amandastory516 that I’ve had for a while but haven’t tried yet. I know exactly why I’ve been putting this one off though – MATCHA. Matcha intimidates the crap out of me. I don’t know why, but I’m always afraid I’m going to mess it up and so I never get around to trying it. I’m so glad I finally decided to try this one though because I loved it! Right out of the package, it has this green aroma. It’s not earthy and it’s not quite mineral. It’s more like spirulina. Once the water hits, it’s cake batter – just like everyone says. I started with a small amount of water and made a paste, slowly adding and whisking until everything was combined, then added a little cream and a little sugar syrup. It was a perfect warm and cozy drink, kind of like a cake-flavored hot chocolate (but without the chocolate). If not for the caffeine, I think this would make a fantastic nightcap. I’d certainly be happy drinking it every night.
