Holds up to its name.

When I found out about this shop, all I can say is I was pleasantly surprised. With flavors ranging from Maca to cheesecake, to bubblegum and treats of the like, this company appeals to the matcha enthusiast who also happens to be a foodie (or in some cases, health nuts). The novelty of the flavors in itself makes Red Leaf stand out from other stores carrying the sophisticated green drink.

By the way, I went with the regular strength, delicate flavor option. It came in a gold package.
When I first tried this, it was after completing a five-mile run. Needless to say I made it as an iced latté. I added some (almond) milk and sweetener (fructose in this case) to bring out the silky, chocolaty texture.

And well, is it great! It smells and tastes like a box of chocolates! Yes, a box of chocolates. Reminds me of Rocky Moutain’s no-sugar-added line.
FYI It’s not just cacao or carob, it’s distinctively chocolate. I can’t wait to try the Maca one, which I also bought. I think these will be a nice addition to my matcha stash. I also look forward to the cheesecake flavor everyone is raving about.
