drank Blueberry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
916 tasting notes

So I am having a hot matcha latte for breakfast today! It frothed up pretty good this morning, and I added it to hot milk and added a bit more hot water. I tried it with only a little sugar, but it was a bit tart, so I added a bit more, in total probably a tsp. Oh, and I used probably a bit under 3/4 of a tsp of matcha, and the flavor is perfect right now! Sweet, juicy blueberries, yum!

Matcha is growing on me a bit, I am curious to try other flavors, but I don’t know..I still enjoy regular tea leaves a bit more :P however, if Red Leaf has a sale again, I probably will have to pick up some more flavors for me hehe.

review this as part of their matcha review program and you can get 30% off an order – which is only slightly less awesome than the 40% the sales typically are.

Of course. Always happy to help other addicts out lol
I love my tea, but there’s something to be said about kicking off every morning with a cold matcha smoothie for breakfast/energy for the morning. Plus sticking everything in a blender means i don’t have to actually whisk anything haha

MissLena

Haha yeah it sounds like an awesome way to start the day! I’m still new to matcha, and am keeping an eye on how the caffeine in it affects me as I’m a bit sensitive, so I don’t know if it will become a daily habit, but I do like it for a change, and I imagine if I try more kinds, I will want it more often too! Haha, as if I need more tea :P I’ll definitely have to try it in a smoothie, it sounds delicious that way.

Frozen banana because I like the texture and thickness it brings, two cups of milk (I have a 24oz bottle I drop it into), 1-2tsp of random matcha, blend…and then I usually throw in some ice so it’ll stay cold a bit longer and melt and add a bit more liquid heh

MissLena

Mmmmm that sounds delicious! And healthy to boot :D I will have to try it out over the holidays :D

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
