spicelydulcematchaI often have matcha in the morning in place of coffee. Matcha has a similar amount of caffeine to coffee, but unlike coffee, it gives you a boost that normally lasts longer than coffee. This morning I had a big cup of Dulce Matcha Spice. This matcha is made with organic matcha, vanilla, cinnamon, and stevia leaf. The powder smells rich and spicy and very sweet, unlike a plain matcha powder. Rather than being bright green, the powder is a creamy, light green color.

I tried this matcha tea three different ways. First I heated one cup of water to about 180 degrees and added 1 teaspoon of matcha. This method of making matcha is called usucha in Japan. Usucha means “thin tea”. The smell of cinnamon immediately wafted from the steamy water. It reminded me of fall when I make vanilla cinnamon oatmeal. This matcha is not your typical matcha! It is very, very sweet and doesn’t need any addend sweetener. As you swallow this tea, you can feel the spicy cinnamon go down your throat. It is a little gritty from the cinnamon so I would suggest straining this tea. This matcha is very overpowered by the vanilla and cinnamon and is definitely more of a special dessert tea.

The second way I tried this tea was like a latte. I heated one cup of milk and added 1 teaspoon of matcha. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of cocoa powder and some honey. This drink was delicious! Adding this matcha to milk rather than water, created an extremely rich, creamy drink. I would warn against adding any sweetener to this tea though. It is plenty sweet on its own!

Lastly, I tried this tea chilled. I put one cup of almond milk in a blender with 1 1/2 teaspoon of matcha and 2 teaspoons of coconut sugar. I topped it off with some ice cubes. This was probably my favorite way to drink the matcha. The chilled milk balances out the spicy cinnamon. In cold milk, I could detect more of the matcha flavor.

Though this is very different from the traditional matcha, it is was wonderful treat. If you love vanilla, caramel, and spicy flavors then this matcha is for you. If you aren’t a fan of the traditional, bitter matcha, then you’ll love this sweet version. In the winter you can drink this matcha hot and in the summer you can drink this matcha cold. It will energize you and satisfy your sweet tooth.
