Today I HAD to try matcha in a water bottle. I’ve only drank matcha a couple of times before so I feel odd giving this a numerical rating, since I don’t think I have enough experience to know whether a matcha is good quality.
It was so easy to make in the water bottle that I was a bit shocked. I put about 1/2tsp in a 12oz bottle and shook it up, and behold, matcha! I then proceeded to sip on it through the next class and feel happily awake.
If my wallet can withstand it, I definitely want to get some of RedLeafTeas flavored matchas in the future.

I just broke down and ordered some Red Leaf matcha for the first time.
It was so hard to resist with all the delightful reviews I keep reading on here;)

Claire

Exactly! It’s totally steepsters’ fault. ;)

Hot water or cold? I totally have to try this!

Claire

Cold water. I just put the matcha in my water bottle in the morning, and then added cold water from a drinking fountain and shook it up. Super easy!

I’m loving Red Leaf matcha flavors. Haven’t tried Teavana. I like your water bottle idea. I’ve used almond milk to make chilled latte, but have not just used plain water.

I believe it was Rachel who mentioned the water bottle method in the Red Leaf tea thread. I’ve been drinking it this way almost every day since then and I love it. :) Nice pick me up during the school/work day.

Bio

I mostly drink straight tea, and some of my favorites are green teas and oolongs. I almost always have some sencha and tieguanyin in my tea cupboard (and if I run out, awesome, an excuse to buy tea). I do like some flavored teas, but can’t stand really sugary stuff so if it’s very sweet I probably won’t like it. I can’t drink milk so all my reviews are of tea without milk and sugar!
I’ve been getting into puerh the last few months.

Outside of Steepster I’m an English Lit major, and will FINALLY be graduating after the Fall 2013 semester. After that I plan on applying for graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Library Science. Currently I work as a student assistant in the Archives and Special Collections department of my school’s library.
I also like reading (of course) and playing video games when I have time for them.

I’m happy to send samples to anyone in the US or Canada. Just ask. :)
