This tea trumps all other flavored black teas for me right now… Even my beloved pumpkin! It is delicious. Perfect raspberry and chocolate flavors!
38 Tasting Notes
This is a wonderful fall tea! Tastes just like apple pie! Love it! Great hot and iced!!
My daughter put me on to this tea company and its definitely one of my favorite companies to order tea from! They have great specials with free tea & free shipping and SO many great teas to choose from! The chocolate tea is the best chocolate tea I have tried…. And I have tried many!!!
The whole kitchen smells yummy when this is steeping!!!! I highly recommend this tea :)
This is an excellent pumpkin tea! Not overly spiced! One of my new favs!!!
I absolutely LOVE this tea! Perfectly balanced chocolate & chai naturally tasting flavors in this pu erh tea. Wonderful hot, as well as iced. I have already ordered more!
I absolutely loved this one! Sad they went out of business!
The awesome Bonnie sent me this sample…..thank you Bonnie!
This tea is not for me but so glad I got to try it!
As with many of Teavana teas this one is very pretty to look at but the taste …well….not one that I wish to drink ever again.
This is pretty to look at but very “herbal-ish” in taste. Nothing I would ever purchase again!
Matcha where have you been all my life! I mentioned in another review of Red Leaf Tea’s Matcha tea that my discovery of tea is a very new adventure for me and that after reading rave reviews on Steepster about Red Leaf’s eclectic selection of flavors, I gave it a try. I wonder now how I got along without it. I got my daughter hooked and recently had my son try it. He immediately ordered some for himself. After tasting it, it is not a question of “do I want to order some”, it is more like “how much and what flavors should I order”! Trust when you look at all the flavors they have to offer, it is extremely hard to decide!
My second order came last week and I could smell the wonderful matcha before I opened the box! First up for testing was the Strawberry flavored matcha which you can find here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/strawberry-matcha.html
Sweet and naturally tasting Strawberry flavor. In an effort to lead a healthier lifestyle, I find Matcha tea to be so versatile. I added a teaspoon of Matcha, a half a cup of plain greek yogurt & a few fresh strawberries, a little almond milk & ice in a blender and I had a delicious healthy smoothie!
I got this in the Steepster Select box. I am very inexperienced with Oolongs but I really like this a lot. It has a very crisp and clean green taste. I especially love how the leaves unfurl during steeping. I am definitely going to look into more Oolongs.
I love this tea!
This is the first black loose leaf tea I tried and it remains one of my favorites. It doesn’t really seem anymore expensive to me than many of the other teas out there. I also have gotten several flavorful steepings out of it so I appreciate that.
Another favorite pumpkin tea! Very delicious iced as well as a yummy hot cup. Not over spiced at all so the wonderful pumpkin flavor shines through.
This is the tea that led me to Praise tea in the first place. I like their Chocolate Pu erh better though!
*also it called Chocolate Whiskey Cream now ( if you are looking for it)
There is nothing wrong with this tea but I have recently learned I do NOT like hibiscus and rose hips!
But if you do like hibiscus this is probably a lovely tea :)
My very sweet daughter Amanda bought me this tea. I have no idea why but I am on a “love of pumpkin” tea binge! Kind of strange for the middle of summer I guess but it all got started with Davids Pumpkin Chai.
This tea is very light in flavor but yet distinct. It is not over spiced with cinnamon etc.
which I really appreciate!
I am loving this one!
I received this as a sample from Verdant Teas so a “Thank You Very Much” is in order! I am so glad I got to try this. It is not something I would choose on my own mainly because of my “newness” to the world of tea. At this stage in the game my lack of “tea experience” really hinders me from identifying all the unique flavors that unfold with each steeping of this tea (that so many others can distinguish). But I do know I love the size and smell of these leaves!
Right now I can simply say I really really like this tea!
Bonnie was so kind to send this (and many many more) in a swap. Thank you so very much! This was just ok to me. I can not really pinpoint any specific dislikes except perhaps the hint of bergamot (of which I am not a fan).
However, I do appreciate getting the chance to try this tea.
For the past two days every time I walk past my tin of Red Leaf Tea’s Madagascar Vanilla Matcha, I have to stop and smell it. It really is an indescribable wonderful smell!
I have had this Matcha in Red Leaf’s “2 in 1” option combined with Caramel Matcha and it was heaven. This time around I bought each of those flavors separately so I could use them individually or combined. This past weekend, my awesome daughter bought me a Magic Bullet blender because I have been so into making tea based drinks and smoothies etc. Already I have used this amazing flavored Madagascar Vanilla Matcha to make some super scrumptious smoothies. This morning I added it to a peach greek yogurt smoothie and it was delicious. Vanilla goes so well with so many fruits such as strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Or this Matcha is spectacular all by itself, hot or cold. This flavor Matcha remains my top favorite and I believe I will be reordering this probably every order I place with Red Leaf because you just can’t go wrong with this one. (Perhaps I should give Red Leaf’s French Vanilla Matcha a chance though!)
Besides tasting so yummy, one cup of Matcha tea is equivalent to ten cups of green tea, so the health rewards are astronomical!

My Matcha journey continues with Red Leaf Tea”s Orange Matcha. Orange is one of my favorite fruit flavors. If you are a fan of the flavor orange as well, I highly recommend that you treat yourself. Perhaps even if orange isn’t on your top 5 favorite flavors list, you may want to travel outside your flavor “comfort zone” and give this one a try. It certainly does not disappoint! The aroma is intoxicating and the flavor is straight up orangey goodness! I prefer this one cold but that may just be because it has been so hot lately. I prepare it according to directions, add a wee bit of simple syrup and chill. It is a refreshing citrus energy drink that is loaded with flavor and all the benefits of Matcha tea. I can not say enough about the energy drinking a cup of this tea provides. A great way to start your day or an excellent midday pick me up!
So many ways to incorporate this magic matcha into your day. Perhaps add to your orange cranberry muffin or scone recipe. One of my favorites so far has been to add a teaspoon of my orange matcha, a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt, a splash of low fat milk and a quick mix in the blender = a yummy wonderful dessert-like creamsicle flavored smoothie!

Another awesome iced tea from 52 teas! It tastes perfect and refreshing.
I didn’t see the “2 in 1” listed so I am posting this under caramel
I am a new tea drinker and I am certainly new to the world of Matcha tea. But oh, what a wonderful world it is! After reading all the rave reviews for Red Leaf Tea’s amazing flavor assortment of Matcha teas here on Steepster, I took the plunge and ordered their “2 in 1” Custom Matcha Tea.
Which can be found here:
I chose Caramel and Madagascar Vanilla for my flavors and I am so glad I did! I am not sure I can adequately describe how much I love this tea and these flavors.
I had been a little apprehensive prior to ordering mainly because I had never heard of it before and it was so green. Even after it arrived, I didn’t dive right into it. After a couple days I decided to make some and see what all the hype was about. One taste and I am hooked. The flavor is amazing! I had it hot and then I made some cold. They were both awesome! I mixed up a tumbler full for my daughter for her morning tea at work and she absolutely loved it. She said she thought it would also taste great in cupcakes and I agree! Now my wheels are turning about all the awesome ways I can incorporate this flavorful Matcha into recipes. On Red Leaf Tea’s website they have some delicious recipes for smoothies, frappes etc that I can not wait to try. I love that there are so many possibilities of ways to use this tea besides drinking it (which is awesome in itself!).
I have been trying to diet but have a bit of a sweet tooth. Drinking this Caramel & Madagascar Vanilla was like having a dessert. I was totally satisfied. With a bit of sweetener added to these already uniquely superb flavors, this was like drinking a high calorie fattening dessert but was actually guilt free and healthy.
Finally, I definitely need to comment on the amount of energy I feel after drinking this tea. It is a really good energy not like a coffee or sugar rush. My whole transition from coffee and soft drinks to tea was to reap the vast health benefits associated with tea. I was pleasantly surprised when I read the various and significant health benefits of Matcha tea. Besides the antioxidants & cancer fighting properties, it also aids in weight loss and mood enhancement!
Great taste, health benefits and lots of ways to use it. It doesn’t get better than that!
Love this awesome refreshing iced tea!!! I am about to go buy this one and a few others right now!
