drank Cola Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
1195 tasting notes

I don’t know if anyone remembers Coca-Cola Blak from a few years back. It was Coke mixed with coffee, and I looooved it. I’m so sad it was discontinued. I have no idea why I loved it. I was reminded of it with this new flavored matcha from Red Leaf so I knew I had to get it. And when you live in the land of Coca-Cola, you kind of need to know how this thing tastes!

I think this would probably terrify many people because it’s pretty unique…but oh man it’s so good.

When I opened the bag it definitely smelled like Coke, it even smells effervescent. I waited as long as I could but I needed to have it ASAP. I figured the only way to really have this is to drink it cold, because hot cola would be kind of weird.

I put a bit of creamer in it, and it really tastes like Coca-Cola! The matcha is pretty much covered by the flavor, but at the end there’s a bit of the flavor of it. I don’t even care. I can’t stand soda other than Coke Zero because of the syrupy nature of it, and this is WAY better.

Imagining it now with a scoop of vanilla ice cream in it…

I loved Coca-Cola Blak too! I don’t really even like Coke that much (too sweet) but with that acidic, malty coffee…. MMMM. Heaven! I miss it.

I still have the carmel matcha from you to try! I smell it and it smells SO lovely! Saving it for a ME moment! :)

Online it says Blak is still available in Canada.

Everywhere I looked said it’s gone entirely and has been since 2008/2009. This is my favorite response about it though: http://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090718102409AACEs3i I guess it doesn’t get more legit than your coca-cola salesman.

Bonnie

Oh, actually I read that the Canadian version tastes different and there was a Mexican version that was different too.
