Today's Red Leaf Tea Special
Regarding requests for samples:
I would love to make samples of flavored matcha teas, but I ran into a couple problems:
1. Each flavored matcha is done manually just the way you like it. While it saves product to make smaller version, it takes same amount of time to make it and pack it as regular version.
2. Issue #1 could be solved by making batch of 10 different flavors, but with so many options offered, the next question is what flavors and what strength. Not every one will want same thing.
My solution is to make 10 flavors sampler by the end of next week. I will post a poll on my site for you to vote on what flavors you want in the sampler pack. One vote per day. The most popular 10 flavors will be included.
Let me know what flavors you want to be in the sampler. It’s up to you to decide.
If you have any other suggestion, please let me know. I welcome any ideas.
here the link to the poll. vote for your favorite flavors :-)
thank you for your effort in this. I will check in again if you post another poll, as I am not interested in any of the current flavors offered within the current poll.
The flavors listed there are a suggested flavors. You can give me a list of flavors you want to be included and I will add them to the poll so that everyone can vote.
Jasmine,Bee Pollen,Black Currant,Chamomile,Ginger,Hawaiian Honey,Lavender,Lemongrass,Mint,Rose,Royal Jelly,Watermelon, and Wintergreen are the flavors I am most interested in.
well, dang it … you just had to go and do the grapefruit. LOL and so I had to break my no buying tea until after Christmas vow.
thanks redleaftea for being so awesome and thinking with us. can’t wait to see the sampler package.
This weekend special:
Raspberry Matcha & Raspberry Truffle Matcha.
Also, coming next week: Raspberry & Cream Matcha.
Sorry it took this long, but I finally got a chance to make the Flavored Matcha Sampler Pack. Top 10 flavors suggested by you.
Wow, look at all those great flavors!
Also, I noticed a new peanut butter pie flavor. That sounds amazing!
OMG OMG OMG! I’m so excited about this! I wanted to get more into Matcha, but without the monetary investment I would have to take on one flavor! Perfect! BUT I am also a matcha newbie, so a couple questions that hopefully someone will answer for me!
1. How many cups can I typically make out of the 10g?
2. Do I NEED the fancy supplies to go along with it, or are there shortcuts with things I would already have at home (a mini egg beater instead of the wisk?)
3. I guess this is more for Red Leaf Tea, but does anybody know if there is any milk in any of the flavorings in the sample pack?
Ok that’s all! Thanks in advance for answers to my noob questions :D
On a side note, I was cruising on the website and noticed the caffeine chart… what in the WORLD is 5150 juice with 16,000 mg of caffeine?!?!??!?!?!
Sadly i’m not entirely sure on the cups for 10g – it’ll depend a lot as well on what matcha/water ratio you end up preferring
In terms of “fancy supplies” dont’ bother until you decide you like matcha and/or want to move in that direction. You can experiment with matcha using a plain old fork/whisk or, as i prefer a hand blender or real blender. Just depends on your preferences. :)
The way I first sampled (other than picking up a bit at Davids) was to select a flavour on sale – yes you are committed to the one flavour but it costs a lot less than the price tag on the sampler. Just on the off chance it’s not for you. :)
Just out of curiousity since I haven’t participated in the updated program with the submission form – Can anyone comment on how long it typically takes for the submission form to be reviewed and gift certificate updated?
No more than a couple days. Since he’s not so swamped with reviews, turnaround time is quicker.
Sorry for the longer wait time. All reviews have been updated now. If you are missing one, please contact me.
Don’t worry about the wait time. I was more curious so I would know when to check on things than i was concerned about it taking a few days. I’m just happy to be able to participate!
