A very good cherry matcha. Always the best in quality green tea powder base from Red Leaf Tea! Can’t go wrong with any matcha from RLT.
As for the flavor I will say this is not my all time favorite flavor from RLT but with that said its darn good! I got this to mix with other flavors, specifically with brandy flavored matcha (review on that to come soon) so as a stand alone flavor its okay with me. You have to understand to me, cherry flavored things remind me so much of children’s Tylenol from my youth. Which by the way I don’t dislike, but the association is always there no matter how good a cherry flavor is. I do think I would do better with a black cherry and look forward to when that flavor comes out!
Now, with all THAT said, this cherry is darn good. It does still to me have that slight medicinal flavor.
Mixed with French Vanilla, or Chocolate Matcha OMGoodness!
Now if you are a true cherry lover, then you will absolutely dig this flavor! So don’t let my issues hold you back! You probably have your own issues so don’t go taking mine, I have worked a long time to develop my issues and I will keep them thank you! LOL
Okay seriously though, I enjoy trying all the flavors Red Leaf tea has to offer and I have yet to find one that I wish I had not ordered and I have ordered some of the more bizarre flavors in my opinion! If I ever come across one I would never order again I will let you know but so far with quite the arsenal of matcha in my stash I am so very pleased to be able to say RED LEAF TEA … YOU ROCK!
Maybe one day, I will learn about proper traditional matcha, preparation, respect, protocol, and the history of the tea ceremony, etc. But until that time comes, I will remain blissful in my ignorance and enjoy flavored matcha every single day!
My Cherry Matcha was composed as such:
Size : Small, Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade), Flavor: Robust, Storage : Add Small Metal Tin Container (Holds up to 45g), Accessories: None
As always in every review I mention Red Leaf’s containers for their matcha. I LOVE them! Screw top lids keep the tea safe and sound, and keep you (me) from making a mess trying to scoop out of a bag. Hard enough with leaf tea, even harder with powder. Be sure to grab one of these containers!
Also if you have not read one of my reviews on RLT before – they have the BEST customer service, the most interesting and rewarding FREE MATCHA program here: http://www.redleaftea.com/free-matcha/
and sales galore!
Try them you won’t be sorry!
