I got my first Red Leaf Tea package on Friday, yayy!!! So I first tried this Saturday morning as a hot cup. I smelled the English Toffee sweetness immediately upon opening the bag, but when I brewed it I really couldn’t taste it at all. Luckily, I really enjoy the taste of matcha!
So I had about 3 cups throughout my lazy Christmas movie watching present wrapping day, then on Sunday I threw a tsp into a smoothie of strawberries, almond milk, and maple greek yogurt to drink after a circuit workout. My new favorite breakfast. Not only do I love the natural sweetness and earthy taste of the matcha, but after drinking the smoothie I feel like I’ve just had a really good sleep. I feel refreshed and awake, I feel strong and healthy. I will absolutely continue to order matcha to create a delicious healthy breakfast, and maybe I’ll try a robust flavor too.
Sunday I also brewed this cold in a water bottle to take with me for the day while my boyfriend and I went to buy our stockings. I don’t like it as much cold as I do in the smoothie but what an amazing natural energy boost that doesn’t give me jitters or a crash.
I’m way more impressed than I expected to be.
