Maca Matcha

Buy it here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/maca-matcha.html

This is one of the more interesting matcha I have tired from Red Leaf. I wanted to try some flavors that I had never tried before to expand my horizons and in effort to “give back” to Red Leaf by reviewing some of the matcha that was lacking any reviews – especially since they have such a generous “Free Matcha” Program which you can find here:
http://www.redleaftea.com/free-matcha/

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) which was purchased for an extra 3.00 (price is going up to 4.00 soon which is still reasonable.)
As always I recommend you get the container – the lid screws on and off which keeps your powder safe from spillage and fresh!

I find the flavor of this matcha to be very creamy, sweet, caramel like in flavor with a slight cocoa flavor as well but then there is this little bite to it that is almost fruity. I have to say this is harder to explain than the mangosteen matcha because the mangosteen was mostly fruit flavor but this one has more depth to it and is by far richer in its mouthfeel!

The green powder base flavor comes through stunningly in this flavor of matcha and its grassy, earthy, and wholesome tasting but then I take another sip and I swear I am having a milkshake!

I tired this both straight and in my typical latte form which consists of matcha mixture, ice, about a quarter cup of milk and about an eighth of a cup of vanilla creamer.

This matcha has a much thicker texture to it than other matcha from Red Leaf tea and gives you that feeling of satisfaction if you are hungry.

This is a far more green earth flavor than any of the other matcha I have tried and the base flavor really comes through nicely even with the addition of milk and cream yet the flavor of the maca itself does not seem to be lost in translation even though before this matcha I have never had maca so I am not with experience in what maca actually tastes like I am loving the flavor I am getting!

I did find some interesting information on Maca here: http://www.wholisticresearch.com/info/artshow.php3?artid=233

Don’t be afraid to branch out when it comes to the more diverse flavors Red Leaf has to offer! Expand your horizons – this one is really quite wonderful!

Thanks for all the info/links. Just one of the many things I want to try and having it brought up like this is a gentle reminder that I need to research and start the journey.

:) you won’t regret the journey!

I may have to pick your head a little, since you are so helpful/accomodating to us new to tea folk. When I’m ready I will PM you some questions since I’m too lazy to research when I see an opportunity arise to circumvent it.

Sounds like an ominous plan! :) Here to help if I can! :)

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.
