French Vanilla Matcha

Get it here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/french-vanilla-matcha.html

Wooo hoooo my third matcha today. Its been a long busy crazy kind of day with the need to multitask, be sociable, run errand, work, make phone calls, help family out, entertain teen girls with girl talk time, and go go go. Thanks to the power of matcha it has been a breeze! Now I am waiting on the husband to get home from work hopefully within the next hour or so and spend maybe one hour of quality time with him before I can unwind silently on my own perhaps doing some reading. However, I am going for this cup to carry me through till that time.

So I am indulging in some french vanilla matcha from Red Leaf Tea linked above.

This is one of the smoothest matcha yet from Red Leaf. A lot like Bavarian Cream it is very velvety and creamy. I think I prefer this over the madagascar vanilla because this one seems to be a bit more vanillay more in your face a term I over use but everyone who follows me pretty much knows I like my flavors to be strong. Between the two, if you want something more mellow and laid back then Madagascar Vanilla is your cup of tea, but if you want something sinfully smooth, rich, thick, and creamy, then French Vanilla is the one for you.

My 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) 3.00 add on

I always get the tin as you probably know by now. Its an extra 3.00 but worth it unless you already have tins at home to use. While I love the pretty gold packaging that Red Leaf sends the matcha in but they don’t reseal, which is the only downside to ordering matcha from Red Leaf and thats not much of a downside! I do however like how the matcha does not stick to the interior of the bags and you can get most all of it out of the bag easily! They also have larger tins if you decide to get the larger quantity of matcha for I think 4.00 but don’t quote me on that.

I will probably do a bit more exploring of all the flavors Red Leaf Tea has to offer before ordering a larger quantity however I am pretty sure French Vanilla would make that list. I mean you can mix it with other flavors to get a more creamy texture and flavor out of them such as mixing Caramel matcha with French Vanilla but then I think I could do the same thing with Cheesecake, or Bavarian Cream so the list of possible mixes goes on and on!

It has actually been two days that I have been writing this review because I have been feeling a little under the weather but I did have a second cup today – or more like this evening – just to refresh my experience and I must say that it is such an easy matcha to drink, probably the best starter matcha I could think of. Its unassuming and true to what you would expect it to be. It is just like French Vanilla ice cream only more like a top quality ice cream rather than a store brand. Tomorrow I plan to do a Caramel and French Vanilla Mix – looking forward to that!
This is one that has a permanent home in my matcha stash!

Can you tell me if they accept Paypal? I can’t find an FAQ or anything on their site, and I don’t want to punch in my name, email, address, etc. just to get to the bottom of the payment screen and find nothing but, “and here’s the spot for your credit card number.”

Bio

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.
