drank Peach Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
1196 tasting notes

This does not taste good. I wanted an iced latte, but I wanted to take a sip while it was hot. PURE CHEMICAL TASTE.
Dumped it. Tried again, going all the way through for the latte this time…it’s still there, although now it’s relegated to a strong aftertaste that still makes it hard to drink. My tongue hurts from it.
I guess that might be the last time I pick “distinctive” flavoring. I’m going to brush my teeth now.

And the worst part is I got the royal matcha for it and it’s entirely ruined by this horrific aftertaste.

I REALLY hope there is just something wrong with this, I’m gonna email them now.

It was hard to “like” that comment! So sorry!!! I thought Red Leaf was good stuff! I would ABSOLUTELY ask for a refund or replacement! Its not cheap tea is it? I thought they were on the pricy end!

I’ve been doing the free matcha thing, so I only paid about $4 but the other two I’ve gotten have been marvelous. I am worried maybe since it was hot today it made it go bad since I didn’t get to my mailbox until 6. But it just reminds me of the fruity tea version of this horrible white hot chocolate k-cup I had once. It tasted good…until you stopped drinking it. I hope it’s just a one off because I love peach so much D:

Ugh… sorry to hear about your poor experience.. Red Leaf Tea is a good company, so, I think that they will work with you to get a happy end result to this experience.

I had some trouble with this one too, try using a lower temperature. It helped a lot. But if you didn’t care for this one, don’t try the lemon.

It was much cooler the second time around, not sure how much cooler but I’d say definitely under 170 and it still had the taste. I can smell it in the matcha too :[ But no worries, they’ve already gotten back to me.

The Pina Colada sadly has this chemical taste too!
I’m going to review it as best I can though :B All the other flavours I’ve tried have been perfect and wonderful, so it must just be a few that have troubles
