MMmmmmmMINT Matcha is JUST what I needed to help round off my matcha supply!
I love mint but need to be in the mood for it. Luckly for me that mood comes fairly often!
Mint is eye opening, awakening, and also helps soothe a troubled tummy.
We had some really good Japanese food last night at a great restaurant but all of us were having some tummy “issues” last evening after dinner. This mornings mint matcha which you can buy here http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/mint-matcha.html is really helping to settle the tummy woes.
When I opened my bag from Red Leaf Tea the aroma was striking! I instantly thought “ohhhh yessss this is IT”. It had some slight resemblance to Spearmint gum, and while I do also detect peppermint flavor here I would have to say the mint used is mostly spearmint. Now with that said – whatever mint this is – which is arguable – this is a perfect blend of mints period.
For those who know their mints some really prefer one type of mint over another. Spearmint to me is sweeter than peppermint and there is less of a bite to it. Some may beg to differ since most people are used to peppermint candies but in its true form I find peppermint to have more bite, sharper than spearmint and spearmint more sweet naturally. Regardless of what type of mint you prefer I have to say this Mint Matcha from Red Leaf does in fact taste very natural! A perfect union of mints!
This is an excellent mixer as well. Of course you will want to use a little less mint matcha in your blend along with another matcha but I choose to blend mint with mocha this morning. The mocha I used a full scoop and the mint just a half of a scoop. I can taste the mocha very well and the mint does not totally over power it.
This mint does not in any way taste like mouth wash or toothpaste. It is quite enjoyable. I am so glad that I purchased this one and will absolutely keep this as a stash regular.
Also I notice that the mocha base is providing a nice creamy backdrop to the mint matcha! Ohhhh I MUST try a french vanilla / mint blend as soon as possible – I am thinking “Grasshopper” flavored matcha here! Oh yeah!
My matcha was composed of the following:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Storage: Add Small Metal Tin Container (Holds up to 45g)
As always remember to grab up one of the screw top tins when you place your order! Excellent tins – air tight and keep you from making a matcha mess when you scoop!
I don’t like scooping even regular tea from bags – tins are the best and I love the ones Red Leaf sells!
So all in all I could not be happier that I went for it and grabbed this Mint Matcha from Red Leaf!
Go get some for yourself now!
