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.
