drank Cheesecake Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
582 tasting notes

Okay this is my first review of the awesome cheesecake matcha. So first things first you can buy it at http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/cheesecake-matcha.html
and I highly recommend that you do. So now for the actual review. I tried this the modern way of putting a teaspoon in a cup adding hot water and then using my black & decker mechanical frother to get it all nice and foamy. At first sip it didn’t taste that well when it was hot but once it cooled down a little it was great! I don’t eat much cheesecake because it is soo hard for people to get it right but Red Leaf Tea really knows what they’re doing. It is evident in the smell of the matcha powder (which will torture you as you wait for the water to boil) I next tried this tea with milk. I put hot water to about half a cup frothed it and then added milk and frothed it again. It was even better! I did not think it was possible. I also wish to note that the buying was simple and yes they do ship to Canada (YAAAAY).
I got the starter grade Matcha with robust flavouring and only the small 32grams (which I now deeply regret and plan to order more the moment I have more cash!) I also purchased the tin as the bags are not resealable and the tins take up a lot less room than other teas I’ve bought. I bought 3 Matchas from Red Leaf Tea and they all easily fit in my mailbox, it takes awhile for an order to come to Canada but this is true of all U.S.P.S. shipped things so don’t worry it will come! Free shipping comes if you order over $75 (super easy to get that amount so you’ll almost always have free shipping) Honestly I may be new to tea and Matcha specifically but I know what I like and this I absolutely love.

I like it better with milk but if I have to I can drink it straight :D you made me sooo jealous with your smoothies but now I can make my own (insert evil grin here)

Sil

i like all a matcha so far better with milk in either smoothie or lattee form.

I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve only ever made matcha lattes. I’m not particularly interested in drinking it straight :D

Sil

Nothing embarrassing about that! It’s delicious with milk. Though I totally scooped up some split matcha last night off the counter and just stuck it in my mouth. It was totally not bitter…it was the cookies n cream one though :)
