The high rating of this matcha and all of the reviews are what made me take the plunge and order 7 flavoured matchas from Red Leaf (I took advantage of their buy 5, get 2 free deal). Wow. I don’t regret it at all.
This is THE BEST flavour! The others are all really good, don’t get me wrong, but this is the one that I could drink every day, all day, if my body could handle that much caffeine. I’m vegan, and finding anything caramel-flavoured is tough to begin with. Having it taste great is a bonus.
I ordered the classic grade of matcha with the robust flavouring. Definitely the right decision with the flavour level. The dry powder has a wonderful smell, and I can really taste the caramel when drinking it, even though I’ve been preparing it in the blender with vanilla almond milk. It mixes really well, and goes down smooth. I haven’t tried it straight yet, but will soon.
I bought the little tins to store the matcha in, and that was a good decision as well. The screw tops help prevent the powder from flying all over the place when you open it up (I can’t be the only one who’s done that before). Plus, they’re really cute. I just peeled off the label that was on my bags of matcha and put them on the tins. Worked great.
I got mine at http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/caramel-matcha.html. I just wish I’d bought a larger size of this flavour.
