My grandma bought me a magic bullet for christmas so I could make matcha smoothies :) I made a strawberry one today with some milk and ice. Gosh it was sooo good. It kinda reminded me of that strawberry sugar syrup you put in milk as a kid. This matcha is one of my favorites its such a delicious strawberry. To me its not a real strawberry taste but its not to fake that I don’t like it. It more of a candy strawberry which is just fine and yummy for me.

Nomnom! This tea is yummy. It sweet but not too sweet and pepperminty but just the right amount. Had this instead of my morning coffee its a perfect substitute. Delicious!
Yum so good! Sitting looking out the window knitting a sweater, drinking this tea. Today is a perfect day :)
I liked this one. I’m not one for chocolate teas but I thought id give it a try. Out of all the chocolate teas I have this one is my fav. I don’t get a lot of cherry but its a nice sweet but not too sweet chocoalte tea.
Just sitting down after eating christmas dinner, I made mexican pizza yum. Too stuffed to have real cake so I grabbed this. Its so smooth ans sweet and delicious. Merry christmas everyone :)
Yum yum, this is the first tea I grabbed from my order that came yesterday. I wouldn’t say this is super eggnog but its a sweet lightly spiced tea. But jeeze. It good: )
Today is a great day! I got my licence yay! So i’m not spouse to have any tea on my diet but i’m treating myself to this delicious chocolaty goodness tea as a congrats to myself yay!
I started doing a cleansing diet, so no tea for me except green tea. So I mad this into a smoothies yesterday with frozen peaches and strawberry’s. GAH! its was amazing!!! I usually make my matcha with milk but smoothies are the way to go! So delicious!
Is not a very happy camper right now. So I saw this tea and wanted to try it. Now I read some reviews that people said it had stevia in it. And I hate! stevia I don’t know just doesn’t settle well with me. So I tripple checked the ingredient list on there website to make sure it didnt. And it had no stevia in the ingredient list, so i thought they must have changed the ingredients so yay no stevia.
So couple days later the tea arrives I get all excited try this first. And what do I taste stevia! Look on the ingredients on the package and its different then the website! Its has stevia in it. I’m not going to rate this tea yet cause I dont know how I feel about it.
Its kinda sweet tea, but I get that stevia taste that I hated! in southern bell tea. Gah Ill try this again sometime soon but for now Darn you wrong ingredient list!!
This was really good! Its sweet and creamy and delicious! It reminds me a lot of DT red velvet cake but not as sweet. Yum its so good.
Oh yum! So excited my first ever order from della terra came in today. This was the first I tried so good. You get a great ripe apple flavor. Tastes just like apple pie this will definitly be a repurchase once I run out.
Thanks Azzrian for this sample yum! This is my first blueberry flavored tea so yum. You get plump blueberrys and a creaminess from the cream chesse delicious!
Anyone else having a problem with the 52 teas site? It says on my computer the site might have a virus…
Gosh its been such a crazy day! A horse got out by my house and we had to try and get it off the highway! So now im sitting drinking this.
Its good but I don’t really get too much orange. I was hoping for more. But its still a nice rich cup.
So I said the boysenberry was my last but I’m leaving tonight for a while for a little vacation and there is no internet, so I wanted to get this up before I leave. So this is the last of my order :( Oh very very sad. But what can you do. I got this one because Azzrian ravs about it and its one of her favorites so I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. Now when I think of butterscotch first thing that comes to mind is going to my grandparents house when I was a kid, and always on the living room table was a bowl of butterscotch candy’s. And every time id go over my grandpa would sneak some for me since my parents didn’t like me having candy.
So what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate I was going to get robust flavoring but I’m worried if I start to buy in robust I wont like my delicate flavoring as much. Oh the choices! So drinking it I definitely get the sweet butterscotch flavor but I get the matcha too. This is great! I love the different flavor the matcha brings. It brings this great earthiness to it. And its not too sweet either. Definitely sweetened this one with my sweetener but I sweeten all my matchas. Its sweet and buttery and rich. Guh this is good. I’m going to have to get this in robust just so I can amp up the flavor. Everyone can get it here :) http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/butterscotch-matcha.html
Yay now off to the country for a couple days. It will be nice to be away from all technology, get caught up on my reading. See you all in about a week, have a great week guys!
Mathathon last of the day I just did a small size of this or ill go nuts! I tired to space my matchas apart by a couple of hours. I definitely did not drink them all at once. That would be crazy! So when this went on sale I was like what the heck is a boysenberry? So I completely passed it over. Then I kept seeing reviews and people where like oh its so good. I was like is it a blackberry? Red leaf says it resembles a big sized raspberry, loganberry and blackberry so I was like okay I love raspberry’s and blackberry’s. Then I saw Azz reviews that it smells like red bull. I love the smell of redbull!
So what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate. So what I did was half a teaspoon of the matcha shifted with one third a cup of hot water and half a cup of milk and some ice. Okay so smell kinda get redbull. So first sip I can taste the berrys. Its nice and sweet and tart. I like that its not just a sweet berry flavor. I get the tartness that reminds me of blackberrys. You definitely get the matcha but the boysenberry holds its ground with the matcha. Its not overpowered by it at all. I did add some sweetener which really made the boysenberry shine some more. I’m gunna need to try these berrys now! Get it here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/boysenberry-matcha.html
Mathcathon! Number 3 today. Okay I saw toffee and was like yum! This is my third matcha today and im all energized! I find when I drink them I don’t get the energy boost some people speak of but now that I’ve had 3 I’m ready to go. Get it here: https://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/english-toffee-matcha.html
So reading the reviews I read that English toffee was toffee with nuts and chocolate, okay so its like bumped up toffee um sounds delicious. I was a very picky eater when I was young and being now diabetic I don’t really do alot of sweets so I have not tired alot so this is a great alternative. So what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate. First off the smell guh its intoxicating its sweet and buttery and mouth watering! If its as good as the smell I am going to like this one very much! So I find I prefer my matchas cold so I made this into a iced latte. First sip okay yeah chocolate sweet toffee like, let it get a bit colder GUH! I need to hoard this one so good! I love toffee and burnt sugariness except it getting stuck in my teeth, this is perfect. Its sweet and chocolaty and earthy and sugary and perfection in a glass. I need to make this with almond milk to help the nuttiness come out. Why didnt I get this earlier. O well I have it now and will drink it with love until its gone :)
Yay matchathon! Number 2 of the day! So when I saw this I was like huh? What is a bavarian creme? I was told its like a donut with vanilla custard inside. At first when it went on sale I was like Ill wait for the reviews on this one. Its got such good reviews I was like hum okay let just give it a shot. When opening the package its got a great sweet smell to it. Its smells like custard to me, it could be my brain playing tricks cause I’m thinking custard but hey it smells lovely. Get it here http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/bavarian-cream-matcha.html
So what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate, I love the taste of matcha so I get my flavors in delicate, but I might be changed over to the Robust train so good! So I made mine as a Iced latte with regular milk this time. Thought almond milk might over power this so first off im going to try it with regular. So what I did was half a teaspoon of the bavarian cream matcha, one third a cup of hot water and half a cup of milk, added some ice and viola latte time! I definitely get matcha and some vanilla creaminess. Not sure what I was expecting maybe a bit more vanilla, its good but I thought its be more bam donut! Probly doesnt help that I’ve never had a bavarian cream donut :) Its was good but not my favorite so far. I think I will need to find one of these donut in gluten free probly wont taste that great but maybe I can figure out what its spose to taste like.
Yay my Red Leaf Tea order came in today. And it couldn’t have been a better day. Little personal here, a very dear friend of mine is going into surgery today so I’m doing a matchathon. To try and keep myself busy.
So first I was thinking humm its morning which should I choose, then I was like DUH! Mocha its got a coffee flavor. I opted out of my morning coffee since I knew I’d be drinking quite a few matchas today. First off smells divine! I could smell this all day. It reminds me of a coffee candle I own. Definitely the right pick for a morning drink.
So what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate. Its a very nice chocolate coffee flavor. Not too strong I definitely get the matcha in this. Now the lovley Azzrian sent me a sample of this in robust flavoring, I wish I had gotten this in that flavor its much more BANG! in your face flavor. But don’t get me wrong this is good too. If you want more matcha flavor definitely go with this one. I love coffee flavored drinks. Not that long ago I was drinking 8 cups of coffee a day so this is a great substitute. Now I did have to sweeten this one but I add sweetener to all my matchas. I also made a little glass of this with almond milk AMAZING! You get the sweetness from the chocolate and the coffee flavor then the earthiness from the matcha and the nuttiness from the almond milk so! good.
Coffee fiends this is a great pick :) Heres the link to get it http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/mocha-matcha.html

Thanks so much Azzrain for this sample. First this is the most beautiful tea I’ve ever seen . I didn’t even think reading the name, I looked down at my tea somepoint and was like wow!!! Its so pretty. Tastes very nice light spicy tea. If that makes any sense its spicy but not overly in your face spice. I’m spending thanks giving with my dad he tried it and was like oh interesting I want one. I know something I can get him for christmas now. Thanks Azz :)
Thanks so much Azzrain for this sample! Gosh this is good. I love the sweet graham cracker taste you get at the end. This would be perfect tea to warm yourself up while sitting near a camp fire .
Today is a sad sad day! I ran out of this tea. It is one of my favorites so far. I see another order being placed soon! This tea is perfection in a glass its sweet and tart and delicious!
So I won this from Red Leaf Tea for choosing a matcha name Yay! And they said I could choose any flavor and I could pick from flavors that had not been released yet. So I choose this one :) Now they are released on the site now, but when I got to choose its was all like Oh! I want to be the first one to get this :)
Now what I got was Size: Large Quality: Classic Flavor: Robust (first robust flavor other then the mocha one I got from Azzrian :) I forewarn I have been rambling on about everything today, so I probably will in this review too.
I have never had a creme brulee but from what I’ve watched (being obsessed with the food network) its like a custard with burnt sugar on top. So this is definitely a sweet creamy drink, cant say I get the burnt sugar taste. I do get more flavor from this one then matcha, but obviously I usually get my matchas in delicate so this being robust flavoring its going to have more :) I’m not sure why but when I drink this it tastes like the cheesecake matcha to me, I think I like this one a bit more then cheesecake its more smooth and delicious to me.But my cheesecake was also in delicate flavor. It is very good, sweet and creamy like a custard should be. Here is the link so everyone can get some :) http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/creme-brulee-matcha.html
I think I’m in a tea funk :( Usually I want tea all the time but the past week or so I’m just not been as excited about it…..So I thought okay lets go back to some teas that made you love drinking tea. Decided to have this one as my morning tea. Yum its sweet and delicious… Good start to breaking my funk :)
