drank Caramel Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
63 tasting notes

I was going to not keep logging every time I have a matcha that I’ve already reviewed since I have one everyday, but I’m coming back to this to up my rating for it! The truth is that I love caramel, but not necessarily caramel-flavored things, know what I mean? So while I enjoyed this enough as more or less a novelty as a matcha latte, the fact is that this is a fantastic mixer with other flavors whether that’s another matcha or in a smoothie with fruit or what-have-you.

It took me returning to a favorite cafe/patisserie over the weekend to make me realise what makes this caramel matcha and banana smoothie so wonderful. With the additions of good vanilla yogurt and some cinnamon, I’ve created a banofee pie smoothie! For the uninitiated, banofee pie is a British pie or tart made with banana and caramel (toffee) and cream, and is an absolute delight.

Australians, and particularly Sydneysiders, get yourselves to Camden and visit the Creme della Creme Cafe. You will have died and gone to pastry heaven! (And their meat pies can’t be beat either!)

Bio

I’m an American-Australian living in Sydney with my Aussie husband, very active toddler girl and bouncing baby boy. I need tea to get me just to Lil’ Man’s morning nap, let alone the rest of the day. I’m a newbie to the world of pure teas (and loving every sip of it!), having delighted in flavored teas and blends for years. The hardest part seems to be getting the teas to Australia without exorbitant shipping costs.
