Almond Matcha

Stunning flavor! Accurate to the core on how almond tastes only in a sweeter version! Close to amaretto but there is a difference and I do love both! I am glad I got both as well because I contemplated if they would be too similar and not worth the cost of both however as much as I love both flavors, I had to do it and I have no regrets!

This Almond matcha is sweet and nutty. The aroma is captivating!! My daughter was in the process of making macrons and decided she will add some almond matcha to them. Unfortunately we had to stop because we were out of parchment paper – can’t use waxed …. so anyway off to the store we shall run and I am going to pick up more sparkling water because I want to make an Italian Creme Soda with this almond matcha which will be AMAZING! Frothed up lovely even in milk.

I love that Red Leaf uses natural flavors!

I got back having paused in my review here and have made my almond matcha into a lovely Italian Cream Soda! DELICIOUS! I recommend trying nearly all of the matcha flavors this way.

My matcha was composed of Basic grade matcha powder and I got the Robust flavoring – this is one that you could easily go delicate and still have enough flavor. It is that strong and that good but I am glad I did get Robust just because that is what I generally prefer but next time I may just go a level lower because it does cover up a lot of the matcha base flavor and I enjoy that very much as well. I also always get the tin, even if I have to order them later I always end up going back and getting them. They are so handy and some of the best tins I have ever come across – I love that they screw on! Easy to clean as well for your next matcha flavor.

Here is where to get yours:

mmmm… almonds.. I don’t know if it can take the place of Butiki’s Almond Cookie but I will have to try this one. Maybe if I mixed it with cinnamon matcha…..

Azzrian

Mmmmmm now that sounds really YUMMY! :)

Awesome, I have been waiting for someone to try both the almond and the amaretto matchas. Any chance you could say a few more words about how they taste different from each other? Also, since I make fizzy water at home (and am addicted to fizz), this “Italian cream soda” idea is most intriguing. Would you be kind enough to share with us how you make this? Do you just add fizzy water to the prepared/whisked matcha concoction? Is there milk involved (the “cream” in cream soda)?

Thanks, Azz!

I don’t really measure very much but what I do is make my matcha with milk instead of water. Then I add more milk and creamer (sweet cream non dairy coffee creamer) over ice in a glass. Then I add a couple splashes of the sparkling water! Its sort of a “to taste” thing – depending on how many scoops of matcha I use. I like mine creamier than watery even using the sparkling water – I just add enough to give it the fizz.
Just play around with it – you really can’t mess it up unless you use far too much milk creamer or fizz that you can’t taste the matcha anymore. :)

Thanks for the hints. =)

Azzrian

My pleasure! :)

Almost got this one, but instead I’m awaiting Macadamia Nut and Black Cherry. So next time I’m getting almond. Wonder how Almond Matcha would be in a chilled latte with almond milk or coconut milk?

Donna A

The way you described using a little sparkling water, just enough to give some fizz sounds great too.

Azzrian

It would be AMAZING however between this and Macadamia Nut – although a close call I would say you made the right choice! Both are amazing but macadamia nut is just mouthwatering!

Azzrian

Why thank you! It is good that way !

Donna A

Azzrian, I so far, I haven’t ordered a matcha without checking what you have to say first! I can’t afford to buy them all, and your reviews are very helpful!

Azzrian

Awweee thanks Donna! If you have any specific questions feel free to PM me! :)

Donna A

I forget about PM. Thanks!

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.
