drank Caramel Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
252 tasting notes

Backlog: This is my first flavored matcha! Unfortunately I don’t really have blender access. So I put some of this and some milk in a seal able cup and shook it up! I feel like I put in much more than the required amount, but it tasted like milk up until I added a bunch in. I’m not sure how accurate of a representation this is since I probably committed some horrible taboo by doing all that. Anyway, this was reeeeally sweet. I don’t know if I would say that I got caramel exactly, but definitely lots of sweetness, almost to the point of too sweet. I would like to compare other flavors, and try different methods, to see how well I did with this one.

I’ve had trouble tasting some of the flavors, too. I add more than it calls for as well. I also found that it blended better and had a stronger flavor once I started first mixing the matcha with hot water (about 175° and I blend it with my milk frother thingy) and then add ice and milk and shake it.

I have found that cold steeping the matcha in milk overnight and THEN shaking it up makes a more flavorful and less chalky beverage :)

If you can get your hands on a milk frother, they work wonders with matcha

Thanks for all the advice! I’ll have to try these out and see what works for me.
TeaBrat, I may get a milk frother. I always thought they were giant pieces of kitchen equipment, but I just looked them up on amazon and I really like the little handheld ones!

Bio

I’m a premed student at a university near Austin. I’ve recently started getting very much into tea, but I’m still learning. I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, and California, and each place has it’s own charm, but Colorado was definitely my favorite place. I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
