Last week when Red Leaf Tea offered free tea for reviews – actually $1 plus shipping – I jumped on it. When my son and his girlfriend spend the weekend at my house they always want matcha lattes, which I usually make with my flavored matcha but I have made it from the MATCHAccino mix before. Then a day later the special “oops and uh-oh” blend was offered. I decided to take a chance that Red Leaf wouldn’t sell us something truly horrible and get two large bags of the special blend as well.
I am happy to say that I am drinking my special blend right now, way later than I should, and it is good! I do not know for sure that I got one of the “uh oh” bags but I think it is based on the color. When I open the bag that is definitely the usual grade I will compare the two, but I dare not drink two lattes this late in the evening,
Although they recommend one tablespoon to eight ounces of milk, I just fill my big glass, which is more like sixteen ounces, maybe more. Still, the flavor is rich caramel. I did add less than a teaspoon of raw cane sugar since I added so much extra milk, and honestly I think I finished the whole glass in less than two minutes.
I was excited to see that we still get the free measuring scoop in the large size bag. Silly of me to be excited about that, isn’t it? I really recommend that you take a chance on this special blend if you like flavored matcha lattes. I ordered three bags total because the shipping was the same however many I ordered. The shipping is reasonable when you feel how heavy the box is when it arrives!
Red Leaf, thank you for making this offer available to us!
