Red Leaf Tea – Sample #12
1 July 2014
Dry: Dark, yet a vibrant colour. Kinda like the colour of the face up near the 100 rating!
Straight: Not bitter, and actually quite smooth! Dark liquor colour, nice vibrant froth.
Latte: So good, and so smooth with the addition of the vanilla almond milk! Definitely one of the better matchas I’ve had. I compare everything to sample #6 cuz that was seriously the BEST matcha I’ve ever tasted, but this isn’t quite up there with it, but just a few notches down. Definitely better than a lot of the other matchas I’ve had though :)
Suggested Price: $19
Had a bit of this guy Wednesday morning right before class :)
Nice roasty coffee-like tea on the way to Disney! Yes, because I’m doing the Disney College Program in Anaheim, we don’t have like actual classrooms sooooo we had class in one of the rooms at the Disneyland Resort hehe :) It was great! But the room may change every week sooo.. let’s hope it’s in the same place tomorrow haha
Went to Disneyland on Sunday and my friends and I decided to get some Starbucks down Main street :)
Decided on some peach green iced tea or something and it was pretty good? A tad too sweet. Probably won’t purchase since I can make tea for cheaper on my own haha.
I’ve been so busy the past couple weeks and this was my first cup of tea since WEDNESDAY wow. VidCon was crazy (and I’m never going again… a good and a bad thing), but Disney seriously is taking over my life!
I’ve been wanting to try this tea for so long because I love love LOVE oolongs, but I’ll never purchase it from Teavana 1) because it’s definitely out of my price range, and 2) I’m not exactly the biggest fan of Teavana.
Thank you Starbucks for teaming up with Teavana so FREE TEA.
This is a lovely tea, but definitely not worth $24. Become a Starbucks member so you can get a free oz of tea! It has a nice lightly roasted, smooth taste to it. Tastes a bit like Adagio’s Ti Kuan Yin, though I do like this one a bit more.
Nice tea, but definitely not worth the price.
Red Leaf Tea – Sample #11
24 June 2014
Dry: Darker green, grassier scent.
Straight: Dark green liquor, brighter, but slightly duller froth on top. Bitter, but not overkill.
Latte: I love my lattes so much okay. The vanilla almond milk definitely helps. It took the bitterness out a bit, and added more sweet :) All in all, a lovely matcha, but I’ve definitely had better from the bunch that I received from Red Leaf.
Suggested Price: $8
Drinking this iced right now and it’s actually really good! Thank you MissB for sending this to me a while ago!
I taste chamomile in this, even though I know there isn’t any. Reminds me a but of Stephen Smith’s No. 39 Fez with the minty/touch of lemon taste, but the rooibos rounds it off nicely. Doesn’t have the woodsy rooibos which I do enjoy!
Drinking an iced jasmine tea that my roommate made :)
First time drinking jasmine iced and I actually really like it!
Dude. So I dont love my roommates, as much as my previous ones, but like my two of my roommates now DRINK LOOSE LEAF. THEY REFUSE TO DRINK BAGGED TEA AND IT’S GREAT. I obviously trump them on like… the tea craziness scale, but I’m just happy that I live with people who appreciate loose leaf :)
Going into my second day of training at Disney today! Totally forgot that there’s no traffic on a Saturday morning so I arrived i Anaheim like an hour and a half early… But it’s okay! I decided to pass by Starbucks so I can get energy today :)
This guy made it *okay. It did get a bit bitter so it’s just an okay cuppa
