drank Caramel Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
2031 tasting notes

I know, another caramel matcha tasting note today from me? Normally I wouldn’t bother but I wanted to share my recent concotion… Caramel Matcha Apple Cider.

So I just picked up a half gallon of apple cider at a local farm stand, and as I was looking at it it dawned on me: I bet that would go good with caramel matcha! Like a caramel apple. Mmmm. I didn’t want the cider to overwhelm the matcha so I made my matcha with 1tsp matcha, 4oz hot water, and 4oz hot cider. It is sweet and tart and caramelly and matcha-y and delicious. It’s tarter than I expected it to be, actually; I assumed that it would be very sweet because cider is so normally sweet, but something about the matcha is bringing out the tartness. It works because the caramel offsets it a bit. I can definitely see myself doing this again.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
