62 tasting notes

Oh sweet heavenly goodness! This matcha makes me laugh. I bet I sound like a crazy person now so I will explain why it makes me laugh. When I was told I had a gluten allergie it sucked big time, alot of food has gluten in it. So for my birthday all I wanted was a gluten free cheesecake. So me and my friends went on this huge adventure around town to find a gluten free cheesecake for me. So we found this little bakery online that sold glutenfree cheesecake I was so excited and happy. So we went to find this place, we got lost 3 times bused all around town, walked in circles for i don’t know how long, then it started to rain. We almost gave up but we finally found it in this little hidden strip mall. So we all ran into the store and there it was, so we asked for one which they had in the back and got it all packed up ( everything gluten free seems to cost so! much more!) and started back to my house. Well as soon as we got home we took it out of the box. And jeeze! glutenfree my butt! all they did was scrape off the crust! So when I think about anything cheesecake that is the first thing I think of.

Now enough babbling, so what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate. One of these days I’m gonna have to try different flavor strengths and compare. So I made this into a iced latte because cheesecake is usually cold so I wanted my matcha to remind me of a real cheesecake. I first tried it without sweetener then with it. I have to say when i added the sweetener I found it gave it more of a real cheesecake sweetness. But it has a sweetness on its own, but im a lover of everything really sweet so it depends on your preference. And its not a fake store bought taste, its a made at home with love cheesecake taste. Got it here http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/cheesecake-matcha.html

I also made it into a smoothie. I made my matcha the normal traditional way, then added half a cup of milk, a bunch of frozen raspberry my matcha, and blended it all up. And OMG raspberry cheesecake anyone amazing! The sweetness of the raspberry and the cheesecake is perfect, my drink didnt even last 5 minutes. But now im sad cause its gone.

Its rich and sweet and delicious. What more can you ask for! I have to say thank you to Red Leaf Tea for making these amazing flavors, being allergic to everything really sucks and having all these lovely flavors of things that don’t make me sick means alot, so thank you! Im sure everyone who drinks there tea is thankful, but to me its something special.

Aweee that sucks about the bday cheesecake – wow some people think they can get away with that?? How WRONG! Well I am glad you have this now :)

Cedes

Yeah it sucked, but this is just as good :)

I totally feel your pain, Cedes! I am gluten free as well, and I don’t even bother with gluten free baked goods most of the time, they can just taste so odd.
We went to a wedding this last weekend and the bride has celiac, so they served gluten free cupcakes. The texture wasn’t quite like a regular cupcake, but it at least tasted like one. :)

Cedes

Yeah it totally sucks, oh I want cupcakes now :)

That’s just wrong what they did to your cheesecake. How frustrating. I am fortunate that I’m not allergic to gluten, however, I have found a couple of gluten free bakeries around the area (of Portland, OR) and I’ve tried their wares (I’m a cupcake fiend) and seriously, if I had tested them blindly up against a cupcake with gluten, I would not have been able to tell you which was which.

I hope that you can find a REAL bakery that is able to prepare you a REAL gluten free cheesecake with the crust sometime. In the meantime, this Matcha might just be a good substitute.

Amen LiberTeas! I have had some amaaaazing gluten free goods (some with matcha!) from local bakeries! It can be done!

Cedes

I’m hoping to find some places when I go into the city. But thanks it gives me hope that I can find something tasty somewhere :)

I’ve had a lot of gluten free things, especially bread and it’s often very tasteless.. unfortunately. When I went to a farmer’s market in Boulder, CO there was a company selling gluten free goods that were amazing. My bf who was with me was like “This is awesome” but I had to tell him that not all gluten-free things taste that good . LOL.

Cedes

I’ve tried bread a couple times it tastes like I’m eating sawdust yuck. But I don’t live in the city so I’m limited to frozen foods. I’m going to need to go backery hunting now :)

Gosh I’m so horrible at these things. So my name is Cedes. I just recently started drinking tea. I pretty much like all the tea that I’ve tried.

I have 2 dogs that are rescued. I am a very big animal person.

My favorite tea at this very second would be dt banana nutbread. I like more fruity teas then plain teas. I’m not one for just regular tea.

The only tea place I’ve tried so far is davids tea. But hoping to try some new tea brands. My new thing is trying matcha. Got some coming in the mail. So yay to trying new tea!
