drank Peach Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
4366 tasting notes

OK… I dumped out my first chawan of this (as you’ll notice from my first tasting note, it was not suitable to consume), and after reading through some of the other notes on here for this tea, I thought I’d go with Azzrian’s idea and turn this in to a latte. I used warmed milk instead of hot water and prepared it with my hand held latte frother, and it turned out quite good.

It isn’t a strong peachy flavor, but, there is a peachy flavor there. The milk does mute some of the peachy tones, but more importantly the milk also manages to mute out the chemical-y taste that I was experiencing and found really distasteful. Not all of the chemical taste is gone, I can still taste ever-so-faint notes of it, but it doesn’t disrupt my enjoyment of the peach and matcha flavors … and fortunately, the peach and matcha flavors are stronger than the chemical-y taste which was not the case with the first bowl.

Now I taste sweet peaches along with sweet, vegetative Matcha all in a very creamy latte. It is tasty, although, I’m afraid I can’t go all gushy over this tea because of the fact that it had to be served as a latte to get a good flavor from it. I would really rather be able to enjoy this served traditionally. But, the chemical icky taste prevents me from doing so.

My order specifications for this Matcha were the classic grade of Matcha with the distinctive level of flavoring. The fact that there is a strong chemical taste to this one isn’t going to taint my overall experience with Red Leaf Tea – because for the most part, I’ve really enjoyed all the Matcha that I’ve received from them. There have been a few unfortunate experiences – particularly with this Matcha and with the Apricot – but, the others that I’ve tried, I’ve enjoyed.

I am obsessed with tea!

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.
