I know that my first review of this matcha wasn’t the best, but that somehow hasn’t stopped me from nearly finishing the small pouch I ordered. Tonight was the best cup I’ve had so far. It was sweet, creamy.. nice and frothy. I actually really enjoyed this.
This makes me think that maybe I didn’t give the matcha a fair shot. Still, I’m increasing the rating!

I’m a bit scared of red matcha, yet I’m dying to try it! Does it taste like straight roobios?

I really enjoy the red matcha option because it lacks caffeine.. but feels a bit more special than just popping a bag of rooibos into a cup. There is no question that there is that rooibos flavor. It’s smoother than some others I’ve had and I don’t detect any of that medicinal taste. If you don’t like rooibos, I am not sure you would like red matcha… no matter how strong you get your flavoring. For me, the rooibos is absolutely evident! If you’re kind of in between liking/disliking it.. I say that you should give it a try! The addition of a flavor might be enough to sway you. :)

I wish they offered a 50/50 blend with the green or white, I sometimes really like rooibos but often don’t… it depends on the blend, really. But with the review certificate program it can’t hurt to try!

Definitely give it a try! You might end up liking it. :)
