5241 Tasting Notes
Getting close to the end of my bag, though it’s not THAT close to a sipdown. Also, it’ll be a re-order so really no point to calling this a sipdown ever hahaha. Mostly i’m just excited! Tea time with the girls tomorrow (with board games) AND a work friend is staying over tonight to join our tea time. Not to mention that I managed to find 3 pixar blu-rays over lunch at the used store so YAY for finally having a complete collection (though i still need to upgrade a few dvd’s to blu-ray) heh
Hmmmm my preferences run to black teas instead of green. That being said, this isn’t a terrible tea. It’s a little perfumey for me, but it’s not a terrible tea. As i’ve come to see, marriage blends their teas very well so that you get both the flavours and the tea base. Would i purchase this for myself? No, but only because I am not overly a fan of floral/perfumey type green teas.
Thank you Ysaurella for sharing this with me! :)
I picked this up on a whim since we were placing an order with upton for brew baskets anyway. Man are their baskets cheap at the moment! I mostly just wanted to see if this managed to taste even remotely close to della terra’s lemon blends.
Well folks? not even sort of. lol Talk about rooibos flavoured lemon lol. While i don’t mind the taste of rooibos 95% of the time, there are certain teas that just taste like rooibos….with a dash of other flavours. this is one of those teas. While not totally gross, it’s certainly nothing that is terribly appealing.
When Red Leaf announced they would change their GC to be worth up to 50% until the end of April provided that those of us with GC’s had a new review up, I seized the opportunity to pick up a few new flavours including the new French Butter Cookie Matcha!
My matcha order was the following:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
First to review this, so i hope i do it justice. I had this in latte form and while it’s tasty and delicious, it’s also not quite as strong a flavour as i’d hoped for. It tastes a lot like a creamy vanilla flavour rather than that sort of buttery goodness that is a butter cookie. Now, that being said it’s still really tasty, but i think i was looking for something different. It could just be that the robust flavouring is the way to go for this matcha, but i’ve been trying to scale back the intensity of my flavours lately to try and get to distinctive for most of my matchas. I think that anyone who likes that creamy sort of taste will enjoy this matcha, though if you’re looking for that buttery goodness it might be best to try a stronger flavour. That being said, I also still need to try this with just water to see how the taste changes and whether it’s just the milk that’s covering up the buttery goodness. Definitely a possibility.
