I sucked this down so fast its hard to even do a review on it because it is SOOOOOOO GOOD! You can get some here:

http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/cookies-and-cream-matcha.html

The smell of this one was absolutely spot on for Cookies and Cream.

There is a chocolate note that is so perfect and the creamy notes of cloyingly sweet cookie filling! And OH YES cloyingly sweet is GOOD in this case!

Obviously this is a dessert matcha! But if you are like me and don’t mind having your dessert for breakfast then its A okay!

Granted we still have this beautiful matcha base for our health kick and no guilt right!?

I am one happy camper slugging down my cookies and cream for breakfast!

My matcha from Red Leaf Tea is as follows:

Options:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Flavor: Robust
Storage: Add Small Metal Tin Container (Holds up to 45g)
As I always mention because you never know when a new steepster may be reading – 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!
This is the first matcha that I got the larger 60 gram size of! I normally buy the small in 30 gram but when I saw this available on sale nonetheless I grabbed up a large! I have NO regrets!

I would have got the large tin but I wanted my growing matcha collection to be uniform so I put the overflow in another container I had and put it away for safe keeping. I am sure once I suck down all of this in light speed I will be glad I hid a little from myself!
When I was at the store the other day I grabbed some Sweet Cream creamer to use in my latte blends instead of the vanilla. Today I mixed up a latte with the sweet cream which complimented this matcha perfectly! I only use a dash though to give my latte a thicker consistency as I don’t want the creamer to overshadow or cover the true matcha flavor. It was divine! I don’t know how I will keep myself from making a second cup! I am sitting here sucking on the ice cubes that still have some matcha clinging to it and I just want to dive in and be one with the remaining goodness!
I love the grassy vegetal creamy flavor of matcha and I realize purists would cringe at all the flavors being added but life is too short not to enjoy everything Red Leaf has to offer! I have yet to try a straight matcha from Red Leaf and that is in the plans for the near future but for now I am going to keep indulging in all the flavors I have yet to try and the new ones that are being slowly (painfully) released! I want them all NOW!

Don’t worry THEY ARE ALL SOOOOOO GOOD! Tiramisu will be on sale this weekend which I can’t wait for! You should try to get in on that! :)

Zoltar

thank for the info i like tiramisu gonna be a good time to try if white matcha trigger allergy or not ( i hope not since they have so much flavor i want them all)

Azzrian

I pray for you that it does not trigger an allergy! I want you to be able to enjoy matcha with us! :)

Zoltar

well i still can drink green one since it take 5 to 10 minute to trigger so for 5 minute i’m like that was good i should take another cup then it’s trigger and become why the hell did i drink that ? i don’t want to learn i like matcha too much :P ( and it’s not like it is deadly ) but still if i can find one that i can drink without allergy i will be really happy :)

Azzrian

Yikes I mean at least you “can” drink them but still what a bad deal. Is there anything you can take before hand to help defray the symptoms?

Zoltar

well it is really seasonal allergy so i take the same thing i take all summer and the symptoms go away after some times ( any allergy treatment work ) people with bad summer allergy tend to get away from what give them reaction ( like i’m not gonna go roll in a flower field that would be real bad lol ) i just can’t do that with tea even if the matcha i have is probably far from the better it’s still tea

Aw Zoltar that sucks! Definitely try a different matcha base – the white and black bases should hopefully treat you well <3

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.
