Plum Matcha

Oh Matcha my Matcha. I salute you.
This for me has been the easiest to drink straight!
Its so smooth.
Is it “natural” flavored? Well although I know Red Leaf Tea does use all natural flavoring in its matcha I can’t really say if this tastes natural or not. I honestly have not had that many plum flavored things but its really very immensely good! Its not even that it tastes unnatural and it does not taste the least bit chemical but its just such a strong awesome flavor that it is so hard for me to imagine how they got all that into the little tiny flavor granuals!

I have noticed I have been cutting back more and more on the milk to matcha ratio in my lattes and this one is the greenest of them yet! I am loving the flavor here.
The aroma of this one was INTENSE when I opened the bag! For a robust, not distinctive, flavoring I would say robust is really as far as one needs to go – the aroma was similar to the boysenberry in the sense that it had that Flintstone’s vitamin smell to it but in the flavor I don’t get that.

I actually failed to sift the matcha powder base this time around and yet it is so smooth!
This may be one of my favorite fruit flavors to date!

It has a punch like flavor to it but yet there is this almost nutty after taste – probably the mixture of the wonderful base tea mixed with this particular fruit. Its really quite different!
I enjoy seeing how different flavors play off the matcha base! I think this is one of the more complex matcha I have tried. Its not exactly what you might think it would be with the nutty flavor coming out at the end but it is most definitively plum in the beginning. I like how the nutty sneaks up on me!

My Plum Matcha was composed of the following:

Options:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade),
Flavor: Robust
Storage : Add Small Metal Tin Container (Holds up to 45g) Extra 3.00 for the small tin which I recommend as the bags the powder base comes in are not resealable. Although they are pretty and come in golden shiny bags unless you have some spare containers around you really will want to get a tin with your matcha purchase. Its just so much easier and less messy to have your fine powder in a container rather than trying to scoop it out of a bag!

I do like that Red Leaf Tea uses these shiny slippery gold bags however, as the matcha does not stick to them as much as they might other bags. Which means you get as much matcha powder out of them for your money!

my order from Red Leaf just arrived too… I’ll be tasting this one soon …although probably not today. One bowl of Matcha per day is about all I can handle! I probably COULD handle more, but, I don’t want to be bouncing off the walls.

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
