Are you kidding me? I’m the first to log this one? It’s available here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/maple-syrup-matcha.html

OK… so this is really good! This is the time of year that I find maple so appealing, and I guess it is because I can readily find maple candies and such in Whole Foods. (I love those maple candies) I mean, I love maple just about any time of year, but, it just seems to go with autumn.

I went with the Robust flavoring with this particular matcha, still sticking with the classic grade of Matcha, but I decided that I wanted robust with this because I REALLY wanted to taste the Maple. And I’m glad I did, because the maple flavoring is a transparent enough of a flavor that the Matcha taste still comes through … even with the robust flavoring level. I taste the sweet, delicious taste of maple and the Matcha, with its smooth, vegetative tone. The Matcha is slightly bittersweet in this particular flavor, but I think it works to this flavor’s advantage because the hint of bitter offers a hint of contrast to what otherwise might be something that could end up tasting a bit too sweet. I also do taste just a hint of that chemical-y kind of artificial-ness that sometimes I taste with the flavored Matcha … but it isn’t a strong taste … I don’t notice it a lot … only when I’m really focusing on what I’m tasting for the purpose of review. I don’t know if this is because I chose the robust flavor, or if it’s going to be there no matter which flavoring level I would have selected.

I prepared this traditionally with hot water and whisked – it frothed up really nicely, although now that I’m about halfway finished with the bowl the froth seems to have disappeared. I bet this one would be awesome as a latte. I also look forward to mixing it with the chai matcha which I have coming my way next.

A really enjoyable Matcha and I’m already starting to feel extra energized – which is good, I have to get busy with some house cleaning!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
