I made a cuppa this afternoon as I badly needed the extra boost, and thought… what better way that with a cuppa Red Leaf Matcha!
and boy it did not disappoint.
Using my new chawan and whisk, I was a maniac in the kitchen blending up my delightful wakeup cup! and oh yes it really was. So refreshing and light. Fresh picked greens. Maybe rhubarb or spinach? I know I’ve said this before, but the fresh water note was so thirst quenching! I felt as if I was drinking the purest water around. Is that the sugar destroyer part? I’ve never seen that in a matcha before. A touch of agave really brought that aspect out.
Oh and the flavour and smell were not fishy or anything, just pure green goodness.
As for whether this helps with sugar cravings, well I think it does! haven’t had a sweet since… but then it hasn’t been very long. One day I’ll make a smoothie with this every morning and see if that makes me crave nothing but green veggies! I’ll betchya it would :)
Anyhow, if you want some yummy Sugar Destroyer (isn’t it great that something so good for you is tasty!?) you can find it here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/sugar-destroyer-matcha.html

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
