Hello Tea Friends!

I’ve made it to day 7 of daily advent blogging. Woohoo!

Let’s see what the Tea Gods have for me today…

Cocoa Matcha

Raw cocoa powder hand blended with our infamous hangover destroying Mixology Matcha! 

Ingredients: Cocoa powder, matcha green tea, Kenyan white matcha

After the busy morning I’ve had there sounds like nothing better than a chocolatey bowl of Matcha. This should be a treat.

Opening the tin reveals a yellowy, green blend with subtle but dry cocoa scent.

Steeping Parameters: Whisk two scoops with 100ml of 80C water. Top with hot water.

I will be using the mini Matcha whisk that came with the kit.

Okay so the water may look brown and muddy but it smells like hot chocolate heaven. No foam but it has been mixed very well I can assure you.

Flavour wise this is a lot more subtle than it’s dreamy chocolate scent. It’s light and easy to drink with a hint of hot chocolate in the somewhat dry after taste. No real tea taste to speak of.

Sort of like you’ve run out of milk and cocoa powder and you make yourself a very weak hot chocolate with just water.

It tasted fine it was just too subtle in comparison to the wonderful scent. I will be trying the rest of this as a latte tonight.

Join me tomorrow for more Matcha Musings.

Happy Steeping!
