drank Cheesecake Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4322 tasting notes

I needed a pick-me-up after attending my youngest daughter’s orientation for the new school year. There were too many screaming kids and just too many people for this agoraphobic. And I forgot to take my Ativan before attending so I ended up walking away with my body seizing up and in pain. Ugh… the joys of a panic attack.

So I needed this. I made a latte again, and I really like it like this. Usually, I’ll go for the traditional style preparation for the flavored Matcha but, the cheesecake is just so much better with that little added creaminess. It’s good in the traditional preparation, but as a latte, it’s awesome.

And even with the extra flavor that the milk adds, it doesn’t mask the flavors. In fact, I think I can taste the flavors better with the milk than without with this one. I can taste the cheesecake: the sweet, creamy, tangy flavor of cream cheese and even the crust. I don’t know that it’s really “graham cracker” crust that I’m tasting, but, I do taste a buttery, pastry like taste. It’s really yummy.

panic attacks are really annoying! I have had a few myself so I can sympathize. Oh well it’s time to drink tea and relax :D

Not just annoying for me, but, really very painful. I feel like my body is going to explode. I’ve been hospitalized a couple of times for them because those around me thought I was having a heart attack because my heart rate would be through the roof.

Yes, thank goodness for tea. It does help me calm down.

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.
