drank Plum Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
470 tasting notes

I’ve tried what feels like a hundred of flavors from Red Leaf Tea, yet there are always so many more I haven’t tasted! Thanks so much to KallieBoo for including a sample of this in our swap, I am kind of a matcha addict—especially when it comes to new flavors.

I usually pick the crazy dessert flavors over the simpler ones, yet the packets I reach for on an average day are usually the “plain” fruity ones! Fruity matcha is the best in the afternoon. I love plums, so I am wondering why I never ordered this one… I guess it just slipped through the cracks!

Made in the water bottle shake method this smells so good, kind of like jam! It’s not a fresh plum flavor, more pie or jam: slow cooked and rich! But not heavy, there’s still that nice fruity tang. The grassy matcha is, as always, excellent and delicious. I really enjoyed this one, and I even have some leftover for experimenting—caramel plum matcha? Plum cheesecake? Plum toffee?! The possibilities are endless!

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
