drank Almond Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
1917 tasting notes

Sipdown, 120. Sil posted earlier about making a matcha milkshake and I couldn’t get it off my mind. So I used the rest of this matcha and made a strong matcha milkshake. It was perhaps too strong… The almond flavor in this is already excessive (the highest level), and I put a lot in (it didn’t look green enough, haha!). So there’s just a hint of almost alcoholic flavoring compound to this that doesn’t usually show up when a reasonable amount of matcha is used. Still, I slurped it down quickly. Mmmm.

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.
89-85: 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
84-80: 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.
