A little while back, Red Leaf Tea had both Strawberries & Cream Matcha and Bananas & Cream Matcha on sale. Courtney and I decided to take advantage of this opportunity and stock up on both as they are delicious. Since I was placing an order, I also grabbed a large bag of my beloved Caramel Popcorn Matcha. That brought our total just shy of the free shipping amount so with just seconds left to spare before the sale ran out, we added this to the cart. We chose the following options:
Size: Small (30g)
Matcha Quality: Classic (Basic Grade)
Matcha Type: Regular
Flavor Level: Delicate
Now as I am sipping away at my matcha milk (1/2 a teaspoon of matcha powder combined with 8 ounces of milk), I can say that I am very happy this was the one we decided to toss into our order. It truly is dessert in a cup. The peanut butter is both salty and creamy and combines nicely with the hint of chocolate and graham cracker crust floating in the cup. Compared to the plain Peanut Butter matcha, this is much sweeter, as to be expected given the “pie” element. It is also much creamier than its plain peanut butter counterpart. I am getting a touch of grass from the base, although that might be a result of poor mixing on my behalf and not a reflection on the product itself.
This is definitely a tasty cup and I am glad I have much more in my stash. Anyone who would like to add this yummy treat to their cupboard can find it here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/peanut-butter-matcha.html.
Also, for anyone interested, Cheesecake Matcha is Red Leaf Tea’s deal of the day and thus it is on sale for the next 11 hours!
