If you love matcha as much as we do, then you’re probably always on the look out for green tea flavored anything. So a friend of ours recently reached out to us and asked out to try a product she discovered from as a pasalubong from Korea. And how could we say no to a jar of Green Tea Almond Milk Spread?
Naturally, our first instinct was to buy something to accompany the spread, so we went with wheat bread. But admittedly, before going straight to putting it on the bread, we (guiltlessly!) tried a finger-full of the paste, and we kid you not, we couldn’t help but blurt out, “Oh my God, this is good.” Then, after spreading a good helping on a slice, our first thought was how similar the sandwich was to like a J. Co green-tea flavored donut. But this spread is quite sweeter, and we like how it did not have the strong, bitter aftertaste that some matcha variants have. The spread contains little bits of almond, just like chunky peanut butter. It reminded us of the gooey center of a Ferrero Rocher, but in green!
To be honest, we were slightly mislead by the descriptive name “almond milk spread”, but after a closer look at the ingredients list, the spread isn’t actually made from almond milk. But that shouldn’t be a problem if you aren’t vegan. (Good thing we aren’t!). Plus, as it’s made with real milk, that would explain why it’s so creamy. Also, if you regularly purchase matcha-flavored foods, you may be familiar with how pricey they can get. But since we are matcha lovers after all, the value is in the luxury of being able to have a good serving of a treat that we can enjoy any time.
Aside from bread, we think that this spread will go great with other types of pastries, like pretzels, bagels, vanilla ice cream, and anything that isn’t too sweet so that the matcha flavor won’t be overpowered. In fact, we heard that some people like to eat it from a spoon like pudding!
