drank Banana Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
2420 tasting notes

Made a matcha latte this morning. I made this with plain almond milk vs. the Silk soymilk I usually drink. The silk tastes a lot better, more creamy, but we are talking a difference of 30 calories vs. 100. I’m worried I’m getting fat while I sit around my apt. waiting for my arm to get better. This is a good lower calorie option.

Note to self: next order with Red Leaf Tea should include an almond matcha.

I haven’t tried Almond milk. Does it have enough creaminess? I use the light almond soy, 70 cal. I use half soy milk and half water with a couple ice cubes when I do matcha. Matcha is sooo good. It has become one of mr favorites.

Oops! many typos because of my broken finger… make that I use " light vanilla soy" and make “mr favorites” to “my favorites”. At least 3 more weeks with the splint. :(

Hi Carol, I feel that the almond milk is thin and lacks creaminess. It reminds me of skim milk in that regard. I should try to find the unsweetened soymilk, might be fewer cals.

Hey I’ll trade places with you, broke my shoulder :)

Broke your shoulder! :( Oh, that sound so painful. I hope it heals quickly!

How is it healing, anyway? Is the end in sight yet?

TeaBrat

The fracture is healed but my arm is extremely stiff and sore from being in a sling for 6 weeks so now I have to work on rehab. At least the worst is over but it will take a while.

CharlotteZero

Aw. Yeah. Hopefully it won’t be too much longer until it feels better… :-)

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
