drank Peach Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
510 tasting notes

So thanks momo for sending this. I don’t quite know what I did to this matcha, but it’s quite possibly the most bitter thing I’ve ever drunk in my life. Even sweetened it’s got such a bite to it. I don’t think I’ll be able to finish the cup.

So this is two matchas I’ve disliked to one I’ve liked. Green tea matchas anyway, I still haven’t tried my black matcha that’s waiting for me at home. I don’t quite know what happened between the baggie it was in and my mouth (I only added 185F water and some warmish milk and stirred) but I really can’t stand this.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C

Try cold water.

the peach by the way is one of the more “artificial” flavors from Red leaf although I still like it. I mix mine with milk, soy, almond, etc or non dairy creamer

It literally felt like it was burning my tongue so I’m not sure cold water would help with that. I only had the one sample anyway so it doesn’t matter.

Oh wow. Sometimes a tea just does not sit well with us for some reason. Good thing it was only a sample! :)
