74 Tasting Notes
Alright, I’m officially jumping on the Red Leaf Tea matcha bandwagon. I ordered this and strawberries and cream flavors in robust to start my journey and both are winners for me. I have only tried this as a latte and as I have perfected my technique making it, it has become more and more delectable. Like a yummy caramel milkshake with a subtle vegetal undertone from the matcha. Which flavors should I try next?
It is a perfect spring day: 70 degrees and sunny. The kids are playing water games with friends outside. I am sitting outside feeling the delicious breeze and sipping on a yummy iced cup of this tea. I haven’t had it hot yet, but it is delicious iced. I can really taste the pineapple and coconut. There’s a creaminess there that may come from the honeybush. Yummy!
So, I am wondering if I just don’t get this tea. I don’t really taste cake or red velvet cake. I added a tsp of sugar and what it really tastes like to me is the Thai tea served in Thai restaurants. I can’t get past that thought to taste the more subtle parts of the flavor. I think I need to try this again and steep it for less time to give a chance to be what it is supposed to be.
This is a backlog from a few days ago. Just thinking about this review is making me want another latte of this, but it is too late for me to risk the caffeine. Definately first thing tomorrow morning. Anyway, strawberry milkshake is a reasonable description of what a latte of this tastes like. Obviously it has a vegetal match undertone, but at robust flavoring it is a strawberry treat. Yummy!
