drank Eggnog Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
1116 tasting notes

Got a tiny sample pouch of this – can I just say that I LOVE the sample sizes? They’re more than enough for me to try, especially when I’m having mini cups.

Opening the bag is like smelling sweet eggnog right off the bat. Oh, yay! Made it with 1/4 tsp matcha, 1/4 cup whipping cream, and a grain or two of sweetener. Hm. Definitely got the eggnog in here – it’s delicious and bang on – however it’s… too much of something. Maybe somewhat chemical-tasting? Added cream to the 1/3 cup mark, and that’s PERFECT. Tastes identical to eggnog in every way possible. Perfect marks, because it’s perfect.

This was the first flavored matcha I tried, and I loved it. I’m going to try a few more samples of other flavors before placing an order. Yay samples!

Hmm…got me thinking. If you are adding it to whipping cream, can you whip it up like for a dessert topping ? Might be fun to try.

Great idea! I do really enjoy cooking with matcha, or making ice cream out of it too.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
