drank Ginger Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
361 tasting notes

I had a crazy thought in the middle of the night about this tea and had to try it. I added just a smidge of hot water to mix the matcha, added ice, and then added seltzer water. The first taste was super ginger but not very sweet. I added some straight up sugar and it was much better. A very healthy version of a ginger ale. Super spicy ginger just the way I like it. Next time I’ll add raw honey to it when it’s hot and mixing. I think that’d be better. But this is definitely feeling like drinking a soda. And as I gave up soda inadvertently a few weeks back, it’s a nice fizzy treat.
Classic matcha, robust flavor.

This sounds like a good way to try my ‘soda’ matcha too. Won’t ever be trying the ginger version, but sounds good (if you like ginger).

Yeah, this ginger (at least in the robust flavor) is for ginger lovers only. It’s super strong and spicy! What flavors are you going to make soda’s out of? I think I’ll try my grapefruit. I think that’d be super good too.

Oh, that’s such a good idea! I wish I hadn’t tossed my lemon matcha. I bet that would’ve been great as a soda.

I’ll probably mix my soda flavoured matcha with my black cherry matcha and my french vanilla matcha at some point, but I’m trying to get it to taste good plain first.

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
