Whoaaaaaaa. Is this matcha? or some other godly substance?
Seriously, it’s GOOD. Like buttered spinach! Mmmmmm.
And the depth! Oh yeah, this has some serious heft. Just a little goes a long way. In fact, I think I may have added a hair too much here.
Except… I was hoping it’d be more creamy, like creamed spinach. Hey I am not complaining. Different than what I expected is all.
I need to try it again when I know how the story goes and can review my cuppa without any bias. Oh man am I ever looking forward to that :)

I was so interested in this, but then I realized that I really don’t drink matcha in any form other than latte (and holy crap is it expensive!). So I think its superiority would be lost on me. One day, perhaps, when I feel like bothering to properly brew up a hot non-latte cup of matcha, I will seek some of this out. Until then, Red Leaf flavoured matcha it is!

Kittenna, I am an the same camp with you. One day I’ll probably try this one out of sheer curiosity, but it’s not in the budget right now.

I know what you mean, I’m sortof half and half. There are times when all I want is a plain matcha. But this one? it’s almost like it’s a RL matcha flavoured with spinach!

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!
