MATCHA TESTERS NEEDED !!!
As you know I’m always looking for better quality and less expensive matcha. Recently I have found 2 new companies that offer good products. I have already received sample from each company and now need to test it.
Since my customers are the people that really need to like it, I figured, who’s better than them to tell me which company offers better product.
I’m looking for 10-15 brave souls that would like to receive 2 samples of matcha. In return, I would like you to email me your opinion (no need for long ones) which one you think is better and why.
Since my software will not let me list an item for free, the price is 1c, but the shipping is free (let me know if there is a problem).
Don’t worry, I will credit you for that 1c on your next order :-)
Product only accessible by this link:
http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/matcha-test-samples.html
Hope you want to take advantage of that.

Ohh id love to do this! Ordered cant wait.

Azzrian said

Done! Looking forward to this!

momo said

done! I’m excited to try!

Alphakitty said

Oh awesome! Ordered, can’t wait to try them out~

Sil select said

Ordered! Looking forward to being able to help you out!

Uniquity said

I’m miserable with plain matcha, so I’ll leave it open for someone with more knowledge, since that’s what you need here. Enjoy!

ChaMei select said

I have been on the fence whether I like flavored matcha and I hope trying the “true” matcha will get me adventurous.

In about 2-3 weeks I’ll be getting more, much higher quality samples. If this test is successful, we’ll try it again.

Uniquity:
Many of our new customers are also new to matcha, so your take on this is just as important as someone with a lot of experience. Just try them and see which one is more bitter or sweet. Which one you like better. Which one give you a better froth? Things like that….

tigress_al said

I am very curious about plain matcha! So I ordered this!
I am waiting on 2 flavoured matchas from you and can’t wait!

Babble said

I ordered some too. Very excited!

Dinosara said

I am the very definition of a beginning matcha customer (in fact I still haven’t yet ordered some flavored matcha from Red Leaf, though I plan to), but based on your comment about needing opinions from all types I went ahead and ordered the tasting samples. Hopefully I can provide some useful feedback!

Is this still available to try? I couldn’t get it to process… I sent you an message through your site.
Thanks!

BlueKittyMeow:
I see you tried to place an order and the payment did not go thru. Don’t worry, I will send you the package anyway.
Not sure why or what happened. One suggestion: you may want to set up an account if you want to take advantage of future promos.

Nik select said

Based on your reply to Uniquity, I also placed an order. Thank you for this opportunity to try matcha for the very first time at such an incredible price, and at the same time contribute to the evolution of your business, as well. =)

…and that would be the last order for this promo. Unfortunately I need to cut it short since I got so MANY people that would like to help me and only limited amount of matcha samples. I will post new opportunity in 2-3 weeks for the next batch of matcha samples.

Thank you! I just made an account :)

Sil select said

Bumping this so I can find it later….It got buried so I was trying to figure out where the “what to do” was listed. I JUST got the samples in the mail today so I will do my damnedest to get this to you before I leave.

To my marketing team :-)
I’m also looking for a new name for this Matcha. Quality will be around our Basic Matcha so that name has to match something basic yet appealing.
The winner will get Large size of flavored matcha of their choice :-)

Azzrian said

So this would be like the “Starter” matcha?
You have Imperial, Royal, and Emperors, as well as Starter in plain matcha now.

Cedes said

What about maybe “Pure Matcha” or “Liquid Jade Matcha”

Azzrian said

I really like Pure Matcha!

Cedes said

Thanks

dwmshunt said

I second the “pure matcha”.

momo said

Elementary Matcha

or do too many people think of grade school with that one?

Sil select said

Prime or essential?

maybe simple?

I like Pure Matcha too, but my concern is that it may suggest that other non-flavored matcha teas are not pure?

Sil select said

I went there too amanda, but all the syllables doesn’t let it roll off the tongue as well

Cedes said

What about pure classic matcha?

ChaMei select said

Foundation matcha sounds reliable (thought of it while thinking of a bodice or corset for a fancy dress of mine).

I like Classic Matcha. It’s simple yet bold.
Thank you Cedes. Contact me with your choice of flavored matcha :-)
Thank you all for participating!

Cedes said

Oh thank you so much! I like thinking up names if you cant tell yet :) Gosh now what do I choose.. Sending email now.

You can pick from the flavors that are not listed on website yet as well. Be the very first one to try it and make others jealous ha ha

Cedes said

Thanks just send you a email.

Azzrian said

Congrats Cedes!!

Cedes said

Thanks :)

Cedes said

Oh I sent you 2 emails today through the contact us. Sending again.

Damn…the problems never end..
Thanks to you I have just found out why I was not getting any emails most of the day. My email box for full.
If you submitted some reviews to be checked or any other emails today, PLEASE resend them. My apologies.

Cedes said

Okay resent the emails.

Babble said

I sent you a review today too. I’m resending it. Hoping it will be prompt enough to get the Boysenberry with my GC tonight :)

Nik select said

This is awesome. Congrats, Cedes!

I have just checked and our Caramel Matcha is the highest rated tea on Steepster.
THANK YOU ALL!!!!!

Azzrian said

Congratulations!

Alphakitty said

Congrats! It really is SO tasty!

I have added Caramel Matcha to this weekend sale for those that either did not have a chance to try yet it or would like to get more :-)
PS. I have tried Tiramisu Matcha latte today. Let’s just say you will not be disappointed…

Sil select said

Oh no! Now I really need to get my reviews up on the pear and cheesecake!

Azzrian said

I am tempted to get White Boysenberry.

Dinosara said

Aaaand that did it. Will be ordering my first Red Leaf Matcha for review this weekend… couldn’t resist the caramel.

Reviews. I got a question – if someone did review on Caramel Matcha green tea base and buys Caramel Matcha but this time with black tea base, will it qualify for gift certificate?
Yes, it will. Even if you buy same tea flavor with same tea base but different flavor strength, it’s considered as new review and credit will be issued :-)

Sil select said

You just made my day. This is amazing and will really let me try different options instead of getting stuck in a rut. One question though as I know you prefer amazon reviews…we can’t talk about strength there from what I recall, so any thoughts on how you’d like that piece to work….also not sure you can review more than one on amazon

Wow, I really did not think that much ahead :-(
I guess in case of matcha other than green tea base, the Amazon review is out. In that case Facebook or Twitter to spread the word. (Unless you hate it, in that case don’t tell anyone we sell bad matcha, ha ha :-)

Sil select said

Not a problem! I just wanted to be able to help promote your matcha in the best way possible :)

This made my day. Now I can justify getting all scientific and perfectionist on comparing the different grades and flavor strengths of my favorites! Once I decide what my favorites are…

DaisyChubb said

Thanks for clarifying! I just ordered my first non-green base, I didn’t even think about the amazon bit. Thanks for thinking of that Sil

Poll.
My programmer just informed me that the changes to the poll page:
https://www.redleaftea.com/index.php?dispatch=pages.view&page_id=4
have been already done. Here’s what new:
- You can vote once a day
- You can vote for more than one favorite at the time.
All I need is your suggestions what flavors to add to the poll. First 5-7 will make it there. Let me know which flavors you want on sale next weekend.

Cedes said

Pumpkin Pie!

Amanda said

gingerbread :)

Done, need 5 more….

Azzrian said

Caramel Corn

DaisyChubb said

Cherry :3

Babble said

Cola!

I added regular cherry, but we have 4 so if you want specific kind, let me know.
Cherry
Bordeaux Cherry
Black Cherry
Maraschino Cherry

DaisyChubb said

I was going to say Black Cherry actually, but I wasn’t sure if I could pick from the new ones yet :D Even so, I need to get regular cherry too so they’re both good choices ;)

Changed to Black Cherry.
We aim to please…..

Azzrian said

Mmmmm black cherry! :)

DaisyChubb said

ee! (thank you!)

I know I’m too late for this, but I will say it anyway. Irish Cream!! DaisyChubb’s review has got me super excited to try it.

I also cant wait for champagne to be added to the site! I would suggest it for the poll but I don’t know if that many people would be interested in it. I think it would make for such a great mixer – peach champagne, strawberry champagne yummmmmm

added

Azzrian said

NICE! Thank you!

ashmanra said

I just went on their site and voted for it for you, Azzrian! :)

Azzrian said

Wooo hooo thank you! I need to go vote myself – got distracted with work! :)

Please note that due to overwhelming amount of reviews to check, I will not be able to check them this weekend. They all will be done by Monday evening. There are a few other projects that I HAVE To finish by Monday. I’m sorry but that’s the best I can do…
Have a nice weekend

Thanks for letting us know! :)

It’s totally understandable. I can’t imagine how many different reviews you have to go through! Mind boggling!

I am a patient person, and I can wait. But … I couldn’t wait to order the Tiramisu while it was on sale! :)

DaisyChubb said

No worries! Thanks for letting us know :)
And yes, there are a lot of emails to check I’m sure, we appreciate every second you spend on us!

Alphakitty said

Thanks for letting us know! I’m going to miss the Tiramisu sale, but oh well, I’ll survive.

Thanks for the note!

I voted for the Caramel Corn, but I’d be happy with the black cherry, cola, or even the champagne. The other two, I’ve already have (but haven’t yet tried) … but if pumpkin pie does win (and it looks like it might) I’d be ok with that too, just means I don’t need to order more Matcha next week! LOL
