"The Redemption Palmer | Crafted Pour"

If you need more acid to balance the drink, next time work on maybe doing yuzu and lemon together, Yuzu is such a prominent flavor and tends to overpower subtle flavors like green tea.“ “Mint is irrelevant.

It has the bitterness like grapefruit but sourness like lemon, but its flavor is pretty overpowering. I came to a conclusion that yuzu will always somehow overpower Sencha green tea, so I added matcha to balance it out. Did you know it’s actually incorrect to say “matcha green tea”? Because the “cha” literally means “tea”?? So when you say matcha green tea, you’re saying “matcha green tea tea”.
