100

This was on my shopping list for the better part of a year and finally today I managed to get my hands on some, I feel like Gollum when he had the ring my precioussss! I’m even crouched over the matcha hiding it from the world and examining it’s beauty. Cookies & Cream… there cannot be a better tea flavour out there for me. Well watermelon is a close second.

It’s scent is strong and sweet, it reminds me of some caramel biscuits I had in America last year but cannot recall the name. Oreo is pictured with them which is my favourite cookie/biscuit but the scent is not quite the same, lacks the chocolate to be Oreo. It does smell cookie like though and sweet.

First brewing method will be something deserved…a Cookies & Cream latte me thinks. I don’t have matcha that often but have been craving it lately, had some that tasted like fish and put me off for a while.

Once brewed this has a much more real cookie aroma, baked and warming like fresh cookies and so sweet and delicious.

sip …. HOLY MOLY! I must have died and gone to heaven checks pulse. The milk has brought out the real creaminess and left a sweet pure cookie essence. If I close my eyes and sip it’s like having a very thin Oreo milkshake that has been warmed slightly. Unbelievably good. So worth the wait.

I cannot taste any matcha/green tea at all, no bitterness or anything tea like can be detected. I’m going to trick my husband with it later…say it’s a new milkshake for him to try and see if he can tell there is tea in there. Muhahahahaha!

Overall – It’s mine and you can’t have any! :p

Ha! I enjoyed reading this. While I have yet to get into matcha, I have the utmost appreciation for that HOLY MOLY PERFECT 100 YOU CAN’T HAVE ANY OF IT moment! Its the best! I have experienced this myself with another tea (my precious) ended up buying half a pound of it and have forced everyone I know and love to share it with me.

Did you get the delicate, distinctive or robust? I am always curious as I have had a few now where the flavour wasn’t super noticeable and this one is on my radar :)

Sil

I think this one would be super good with a black base but haven’t tried anything but with the green base yet.

tattooed_tea

I had sent the rest of mine to you :( darn postal service

TOO THE SHOPPING LIST!!!

Chelle

mmmmmmmm. I have a giant list of flavored RLT matcha forming.

KittyLovesTea

@whatshesaid This is the robust flavour.

I desperately want more matcha but just cannot afford it at present. :(

whatshesaid

Maybe robust is the way to go. Thanks for the info!

Sil

Whatshesaid…..most of my initial matcha purchases were robust until I learned which ones I could back down to distinctive. I’ve found that the coffee/chocolate/creamy ones I tend to want robust while fruitier matchas I like distinctive better.

Kitty – I’m sure ill have more matcha to share at a later date

Remember too if you guys buy one matcha from red leaf, do the review, you get 30% off your next matchas with the 15$ GC you get.. That’s the only reason I can afford most of my matcha heh

Kitty I have 3 other flavours here I just can’t get into. I’d be willing to send them to you if you’re interested.

KittyLovesTea

@tattooed_tea That sounds great. What flavours do you have? And what would you like from my cupboard for them?

Shmiracles

tattooed_tea

Kitty, consider it a gift, seeing as the last package didn’t make it’s way to you.

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
