drank Watermelon Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4423 tasting notes

I did it. I finally broke down and ordered some Matcha from Red Leaf Tea. I had been reading the reviews of this Watermelon Matcha and drooling – I had to try it! HAD TO!

I ordered the Distinctive flavor level with the basic grade Matcha for this … and it’s absolutely perfect. Sure, I guess a higher quality Matcha would have been nicer, but, I like this just the way it is. It is sweet, vegetal, creamy and even a little buttery. The watermelon is at the perfect level of flavor and it’s sweet, juicy and tastes very watermelon-y. This is seriously YUM! I gulped down my first chawan full of this, and if it weren’t so late in the day I’d probably indulge myself with another. This really isn’t going to last long in my cupboard!

Oh man this sounds delicious. But my BF would hate it, since he’s not a fan of watermelon (and seriously, who hates watermelon?)

I know, I don’t get that either. I think I’ve met one or two people in my life that didn’t care for watermelon, and I was just dumbfounded… how could anyone NOT like it? I mean, I can understand not liking Matcha as it can be somewhat of an acquired taste/not for everybody kind of taste, but, not liking watermelon? That just seems wrong and … maybe even non-human … are you sure your boyfriend is from earth?

LOL – I think he’s from earth. It’s so weird too because he loves cantelope, which is another melon. I don’t know, sometimes men are so hard to understand ;)

My father apparently is “allergic” to watermelon. I’ve never understood it either. I think he just didn’t like it.

This one is definitely on my short list to try from Red Leaf! I received my latest, Green Apple, a day ago, and am looking forward to trying it ASAP!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
