I have to go to my annual doctor check up this morning and I do not want to. It’s too cold. I want to stay in bed and drink hot tea. It is seriously 16 degrees colder here than Montreal, like this is ridiculous.
So to warm up and make myself get up, it is matcha time!
I think I prefer just the straight chocolate. My water was probably around 165, possibly lower, and the raspberry just has an iffy aftertaste to it. The chocolate is nice though, not as strong as the straight chocolate matcha, but nice.
Not bad, but I wish I didn’t have so many problems w/the fruit matchas.
And off I go. Let’s hope this time around I do not artificially raise my blood pressure by like 30 points by my irrational fear of blood pressure sleeves. I can’t help it, I just think, what if this thing doesn’t let go? Every time they’re just like okay we’ll do this again later and it DROPS. Luckily they took it last week at the allergist and it was 120/70 so I consider that not freaking out. I hope I can do it again haha.
My daughter picked this one out – she LOVES truffles and of course raspberry is one of her favorites. She has not got to try it yet as she is at work but I had to sneak a bit since I was putting my matcha powders into their tins. LOVE the Red Leaf Tea Tins with screw top lids! Almost idiot proof.
So this one has a very nice raspberry flavor, although I seem to be missing the chocolate flavor, not that I taste no chocolate but its not like the chocolate matcha flavor. However truffles have a very distinctive flavor to them – which for me is difficult to describe, but this does taste very true to an actual truffle and not simply to flavors of matcha mixed together. So its not just some chocolate flavor with raspberry flavor but however this was blended with whatever ingredients it is true to that truffle aroma and flavor. I wish I could explain the flavor I am talking about maybe it is some kind of special nut oil that is used or something but there is just a flavor to truffles that is different and this matcha absolutely has captured it!
So today I began with the preparation of the matcha and was going to do my typical latte but last minute before adding the creamer decided to use a scoop of natural vanilla ice cream hubby was so lovely to pick up for me. So my blend included the prepared matcha along with some ice cubes, a quarter cup of milk, and a small scoop of ice cream. It was not that amazing of a plan since the ice cubes and ice cream wanted to be stubborn but I took a long tea spoon and mixed it up and ate it something like a float.
Mmmmm absolutely delicious! The raspberry truffle flavor popped along with the creamy ice cream here and there in a milky frothy treat!
The lingering after taste is what is most astounding! I had this matcha latte shake concoction over 15 minutes ago and I am still tasting raspberry chocolaty goodness in my mouth!
Of course as always Red Leaf Tea’s matcha base is outstanding even at the starter grade!
Oh and if you want to get some of your own to play around with get it here:
My matcha was composed of the following:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Storage: Add Small Metal Tin Container (Holds up to 45g)
I do recommend the Robust level of flavor in this one personally. Also remember to grab up one of those screw top tins!
I’ve had a busy day at work and am thankfully now resting at home. My husband had the day off to visit the hospital for his cancer check up (which are every 2 months now) and he is all clear still :) A reason to celebrate with this Raspberry Truffle Matcha.
The matcha smells almost like raspberry jam it’s so strong. The cocoa is more subtle but you still notice it in the background. The flavour is somewhat matching to the scent, it’s strongly raspberry but with only a hint of chocolate. Very truffle like :)
My husband said to him the chocolate is stronger than the raspberry, that was blind tasting too so he had no idea what it actually was.
I really like this one, I wonder if it differs much if brewed hot? Will have to try that another time.
Thank you Sil.
My first attempt with this Matcha … when prepared with hot water, I tasted a slight artificial taste to it, and I was a little disappointed. I had high hopes for a Matcha called Raspberry Truffle. The second time I prepared it, I prepared it as a latte, using half water and half whole milk, and this proved to be much tastier. The milk sort of cancels out the artificial taste and it also gives the matcha a creaminess that accentuates the truffle-ness of it very nicely.
Awesome as a latte … not so awesome as a traditionally prepared matcha. Here is my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/02/10/raspberry-truffle-flavored-matcha-from-red-leaf-tea/
So this is my second matcha today. I probly wont sleep now, oh well totally worth it.
I am a lover of all things chocoalte. Now Ive never had a truffle so I guess I can’t say I’m a chocolate master, but when I saw this I thought of those little chocoalte boxes you get that always have the chocolates with the raspberry fillings. So I might not be the best at figuring out if this is a real authentic raspberry chocoalte truffle flavor. So this is my first raspberry flavor and first chocolate flavor from Red Leaf so I’m quite excited.
Now alot of choclate flavored drinks I’ve tried either taste way too overpowering or have this weird fake choclate taaste. So I was a little hesitent when I was thinking of purchasing this. But everything I’ve had from Red Leaf has been great, so I finally gave in and got it. The smell when you open the bag is just amazing. Who doesnt like the smell of choclate and raspberrys. So what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate. Ive been making all my matchas cold, so I decided to do this one cold aswell. So I made an Iced Latte with milk, and oh my gosh. Its sweet from the raspberrys and the chocolate, but its not overpowering with the choclate, I get the matcha but its not the primary flavor I get. Its got a nice creamy flavor to it. Guh its so good!
I bet this would be amazing as a hot latte. Even just thinking about it makes my mouth water, Raspberry Truffle Latte just sounds delicious. That is going to be my next drink with this. I usually add sugar with my lattes but this one didnt need it at all. Now I cant wait until tomorrow to try this as a hot latte, I’ve limited myself to 2 matcha a day so I dont drink it too fast. Come on tomorrow! For all you choclate lovers who want it, I got it here http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/raspberry-truffle-matcha.html
So I decided to save my 100th tasting note for this wonderful matcha! Which you can buy here:
Picking out my next matcha became pretty easy when I saw this one. I LOVE chocolatey, sweet teas. This one smelt SO good when I opened the package. The smell of chocolate raspberries filled the room. Plus right after that we opened the cheesecake matcha and then the entire kitchen smelt like chocolate raspberry cheesecake! Hmm.. Maybe I’ll have to try a mix of that? Mm.. I love Red Leaf Tea :D
Last night I got home around midnight so I didn’t get a chance until this morning. I will admit I used a bit more matcha then I should have… But it tasted wonderful! The chocolate raspberry kind of hides behind the matcha, it’s more of the aftertaste. It’s very creamy and smooth. I got the ‘delicate’ option for flavoring on this and I’m sitting here wishing I had picked the ‘distinctive’ choice. This is one matcha I wouldn’t mind having a lot of this flavor in! The chocolate raspberry flavor is teasing me behind the matcha. But it’s still a wonderful treat when you’re craving something sweet! This is one of the ‘must try’ matchas because of it’s unique flavor! And that’s what I love about Red Leaf Tea. They are the only company I know that sales flavored matcha. So thank you Red Leaf!! So again, here is the link to go get this sweet, chocolatey matcha:
Before I continue this review, my last on for the free matcha program, I just want to say a big THANKS to Red Leaf Tea for encouraging us all to drink more matcha. They have provided us with such wonderful flavors and creative varieties that we will never be satisfied with normal matcha again! I hope to see more new flavors from their creative minds. THANKS RED LEAF!!!
I don’t think I’d be a girl if I didn’t love chocolate. I don’t think anything could be better than matching raspberry with chocolate. My sister-in-law buys these chocolate covered raspberries (in bulk!!!) and so I ordered this matcha hoping that it would satisfy me enough so I wouldn’t steal her stash and become 400 pounds! I opened this matcha and was pleasantly surprised to smell chocolate! I couldn’t seem to smell the raspberry in it. I put it into a tin to keep it fresh, if it’ll make it very long. The small size fits perfect in the tin with a little wiggle room…enough to be able to get the measuring spoon in.
I really wasn’t sure how I wanted to prepare this matcha. I ordered the black matcha as I thought it would compliment the chocolate. First I prepared it with just 1 tsp matcha and 16.9oz of water. It was ok, but not really what I was looking for. I seemed to get more chocolate from it this way and not enough raspberry flavor. SO, next I heated up some milk, added a bit of sugar and frothed it up into a latte. Now here is where I get more of the raspberry. It’s a nice creamy truffle.
On a side note, I’ll be learning to make truffles from tea as a local tea shop this week so maybe I’ll be able to use what I have left in making a tea truffle! You can never go wrong with chocolate and raspberries that don’t make you gain weight.
THANKS again Red Leaf for another wonderful matcha creation….keep’em comin’!
Here is how I ordered my Raspberry Truffle Matcha from Red Leaf Tea:
Storage: Air tight refill flat pouch – would definitely recommend purchasing a tin for your matcha to keep it fresh. I did not order one this time since I already had a tin.
