Tasters Review:

Let me start this review off my saying…I’m a rebel child.  I have a hard time following instructions.  Especially with my teas!  I like to do what I call a DOUBLE SHOT – twice the amount for the same amount of time.  I was really tempted to with this but forced myself into following the instructions the first time I tried Teanobi’s Latte Matcha!

Therefore…I did 1 cup of hot milk with 1/4 tsp of this latte powder.  It had a very pale aroma before adding to the milk and afterwards as well.  I will say that the milk/powder color is beautiful!   It reminds me of a “Grasshopper”.  You know like the frozen-adult beverage type.  This powder paired with the milk froths up very nice without much work at all!   All I had to do was stir!  There were a few small clumps which was more my measuring cups fault than this lovely powder and it was fairly easy to take care of with a few more stirs! No Problem!

This is VERY frothy and milky-smooth!  It’s creamy, too!  I noticed as it cools for a little bit at room temperature the flavor was enhanced slightly.  I could taste more of the ‘green tea’ come thru.  The green veggie type green tea that is…much like broccoli and along with the milk it sort of reminded me of cream of broccoli soup!  It’s quite FAB!

I wanted to try this with Almond Milk but I didn’t have any.   I used regular milk.  I am also going to try this without milk and try it with water instead just to see the difference!  And because I am a Rebel Child…will probably try a DOUBLE SHOT just for kicks!

I think this is a very good matcha powder product – I love that it was created with Latte’s in mind!  This is very nice!  And another winner from Teanobi!

    With the popularity of Matcha Green Tea, more and more people are wondering just where this team comes from and what exactly makes it so special. “Matcha is a Japanese word that basically means “powdered tea.” Not surprisingly, this tea originated in Japan and has been used in tea ceremonies for hundreds of years. Matcha is a unique form of powdered green tea which means that when you drink matcha tea, you are actually consuming the whole tea leaf. This makes Matcha a lot different from other sorts of tea leaves which are put into boiling water to create an infusion, and then removed. With Matcha, you are able to utilize the absolute maximum health advantages of the tea leaves.
