Time for another matcha review. Seeing that my Caramel matcha kicked the bucket, I thought it would be appropriate to start this one. As a side note, I’ve never actually tried English toffee before but the smell of this alone makes me want to go out and hunt down the real thing.

I ordered this in basic grade and “There’s Matcha in There?!” level of flavouring. I’ve been going all out on the flavour.

Dry, this reminds me of Caramel matcha but it’s much creamier. Maybe there is a hint of chocolate but I can’t pick up any nuts. But honestly, that doesn’t matter to me since overall, it smells quite tantalizing.

Prepared, this definitely tastes creamier too with a hint of chocolate mixed in. Not as gooey as the Caramel but in a way, it still faintly reminds me of it.

Like the other flavoured matchas, I prefer drinking this as a cold latte. This time around I whisked it with a little hot water, added about a cup of 1& milk, and was extra bad and added a splash of Pinnacle whipped cream vodka.

I can see this one being really good with steel-cut oats and a bit of brown sugar.

Sipping on a class/cup/mug of this is a million times better than downing a sugar-laden cup of English Toffee cappuccino at a café. A by far healthier option and tastes better too.

English Toffee matcha is available here with other tea bases and levels of flavouring:

How many of the Red Leaf matchas do you have? Maybe we can have a matcha meetup sometime?

Right now I have opened packets of this and Macadamia Nut, and packets of Bee Pollen, French Vanilla, and Irish Cream. We certainly should!

Bee Pollen? Hmmm…sounds tastey.

Let’s hope! I read that it’s more for the health benefits than the flavour.
