This is my own combination – not one that was custom ordered from Red Leaf… I used 1 part Boysenberry Matcha from Red Leaf and 1 part Cheesecake Matcha from Red Leaf, and enough hot water and just a bit of warmed half & half to make a tasty boysenberry cheesecake Matcha latte. YUM!

Surprisingly, my order from Red Leaf did arrive yesterday, although I had come to the point where I wasn’t expecting it to. It arrived rather late in the day, but, that’s OK. It still arrived!

But rather than opening one of my new pouches, I decided to have one of the Matcha that I already have opened (Rather than having 739 open packages of Matcha in the house) and save the new Matcha for another day.

This combination is one that I’ve been anxious to try since I tried the boysenberry (it really is amazing on its own!) … and it works as a cheesecake too. For all-out boysenberry flavor, go with the boysenberry alone though, because the cheesecake does mute some of the strong boysenberry notes, but the tart tingly taste of boysenberry tickles the tongue in the aftertaste and it’s yummy! All the flavors are represented here, the boysenberry, the cream cheese, even the buttery pastry, but, I notice them more in the aftertaste than I do the actual sip. It’s yummy, but I think I prefer the boysenberry on its own, and the cheesecake is better with the caramel Matcha than the boysenberry.

Profile

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.
