drank Coconut Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
1431 tasting notes

Robust. From CrowKettle.

This is indeed coconutty. It’s not toasted coconut like DavidsTea’s coconut oolong, it’s more of a sweet baking coconut.

I’m having this as a latte, since that’s how I prefer my matcha. 250ml almond milk, a couple tbsp water to froth the matcha in, about 3/4 tsp matcha, and 1/2 tsp sugar. I sieved this matcha because it’s quite clumpy, I’m guessing that’s due to the flavour.

I do like this, but I think that one flavour level down would be even better. I can’t really tell there’s green tea here, and I’d like to taste it a bit.

Edit: That went down fast. Yum! Now for something completely different…

My mother loves this but I agree that a notch down from robust would be better :)

Thanks! I really want to try this one, so now I know to order the royal base and distinctive flavoring.

I’m definitely leaning towards the distinctive flavouring. :) This is good, but less flavour would be better.

Oooh, me want to try. I just get sad when the matcha makes so little, though my technique may be all wrong. I so want to try more matchas from Red Leaf Teas.

It’s good! It’s more sunscreen/bounty bar coconut than toasted macaroon coconut, if that makes sense. I want to try more too! I just need to finish this course and figure out what on earth I’m going to do for work…

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
