So I can’t remember who it was that ordered this in a black base, and having tried the usual green base, I’m sooooo wanting to try it in the black base now!
My matcha order was the following:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Flavor: Robust

I’m running out of red leaf tins to pop my matcha into so I’ll have to pick up some more in my next order! I ordered this matcha because I was curious as to how close to an Oreo it might be. My nickname for a while in highschool? Was Oreo – in part because I could devour entire bags in no time flat and because it became a game with our friends to have nicknames that we could use the letters in it to mean something else. Anyway…i digress, on with the matcha!
Opening this bag up, the kitchen was soon flooded with cookies n’ cream! I was a little excited because it really does smell like an oreo…only a much better quality oreo haha
I think this would be really good hot, but in my usual fashion, I’m trying it first the way I think it will be “less” tasty. No bananas for me today so my smoothie was a little less thick than i like it to be but nice and cold – just the wake up I needed since the time change is wreaking havoc on me for some reason. This is a tasty matcha. I’m beginning to wonder if red leaf can make a matcha that i dislike! Again, this doesn’t compare to cheesecake and caramel but it’s a nice change of pace. I keep expecting to see flecks of black cookies in my matcha!

This was on my shopping list for the better part of a year and finally today I managed to get my hands on some, I feel like Gollum when he had the ring my precioussss! I’m even crouched over the matcha hiding it from the world and examining it’s beauty. Cookies & Cream… there cannot be a better tea flavour out there for me. Well watermelon is a close second.

It’s scent is strong and sweet, it reminds me of some caramel biscuits I had in America last year but cannot recall the name. Oreo is pictured with them which is my favourite cookie/biscuit but the scent is not quite the same, lacks the chocolate to be Oreo. It does smell cookie like though and sweet.

First brewing method will be something deserved…a Cookies & Cream latte me thinks. I don’t have matcha that often but have been craving it lately, had some that tasted like fish and put me off for a while.

Once brewed this has a much more real cookie aroma, baked and warming like fresh cookies and so sweet and delicious.

sip …. HOLY MOLY! I must have died and gone to heaven checks pulse. The milk has brought out the real creaminess and left a sweet pure cookie essence. If I close my eyes and sip it’s like having a very thin Oreo milkshake that has been warmed slightly. Unbelievably good. So worth the wait.

I cannot taste any matcha/green tea at all, no bitterness or anything tea like can be detected. I’m going to trick my husband with it later…say it’s a new milkshake for him to try and see if he can tell there is tea in there. Muhahahahaha!

Overall – It’s mine and you can’t have any! :p

Sixie

Ha! I enjoyed reading this. While I have yet to get into matcha, I have the utmost appreciation for that HOLY MOLY PERFECT 100 YOU CAN’T HAVE ANY OF IT moment! Its the best! I have experienced this myself with another tea (my precious) ended up buying half a pound of it and have forced everyone I know and love to share it with me.

whatshesaid

Did you get the delicate, distinctive or robust? I am always curious as I have had a few now where the flavour wasn’t super noticeable and this one is on my radar :)

Sil

I think this one would be super good with a black base but haven’t tried anything but with the green base yet.

tattooed_tea

I had sent the rest of mine to you :( darn postal service

Ze_Teamaker

TOO THE SHOPPING LIST!!!

Chelle

mmmmmmmm. I have a giant list of flavored RLT matcha forming.

KittyLovesTea

@whatshesaid This is the robust flavour.

I desperately want more matcha but just cannot afford it at present. :(

whatshesaid

Maybe robust is the way to go. Thanks for the info!

Sil

Whatshesaid…..most of my initial matcha purchases were robust until I learned which ones I could back down to distinctive. I’ve found that the coffee/chocolate/creamy ones I tend to want robust while fruitier matchas I like distinctive better.

Kitty – I’m sure ill have more matcha to share at a later date

Remember too if you guys buy one matcha from red leaf, do the review, you get 30% off your next matchas with the 15$ GC you get.. That’s the only reason I can afford most of my matcha heh

tattooed_tea

Kitty I have 3 other flavours here I just can’t get into. I’d be willing to send them to you if you’re interested.

KittyLovesTea

@tattooed_tea That sounds great. What flavours do you have? And what would you like from my cupboard for them?

Shmiracles

i have my first matcha coming in the mail to me via a swap. now i am worried i will fall so in love that i will become poor. very quickly.

tattooed_tea

Kitty, consider it a gift, seeing as the last package didn’t make it’s way to you.
I have Pumpkin Pie, Eggnog & Cheesecake. All in robust flavouring. & each one has 1 serving from it.

KittyLovesTea

tattooed_tea – I did receive it, came through yesterday…I sent a message to you either last night or this morning (I have a bad memory) to let you know it was received. :)

tattooed_tea

lol I got it after I posted that, I will let you know :)

More of this! Getting one step closer to a sipdown. Hot latte, as always at work. Just over a half teaspoon was all I dared to put in and it’s a tinge chemically tasting but it’s not awful. Still creamy smooth though I’m mostly getting cream and not so much cookie this time. Ah well. This will hopefully keep me awake on my drive home in 15 minutes (if only because I’ll have to pee).

I made a cup of this for my friend but I stole a sip. It is creamy but this package seems to be less like cookies & cream than I recall my last sample was which is sad. It was not bad but it wasn’t the first matcha experience I was hoping to give her. Nonetheless, she still enjoyed it and I was happy with my sip.

I’m not rating this as it would lie around 60 somewhere.
Hot. Bottle shaken. I just don’t like the flavour. It’s chemical-ish and there is very little “cookie”, though I do see where one would get that. Makes me sad. I must be defective lol
Anyhow, big thanks to Azzrian for the sample.

Uniquity

We can be defective together. I intend to give it another go, but I had poor results on my first go.

Indigobloom

I think I’ll make a banana smoothie next. Otherwise it may have to be re-homed.

Cedes

I made it into a hot latte with some splenda and its was pretty good, I have it in delicate flavor so maybe thats why its not chemically for me.

Azzrian

wow really? Try mixing it with milk maybe instead of water. Just an idea.

Azzrian

Ah and yes Cedes may be right – a lot of people do NOT like the robust flavorings and I do so that is what I always get for them most part except in flavors like citrus.

CHAroma

Hmmm, this sounds awesome in theory (I loooooove cookies & cream). But now I’m not so sure…If you don’t mind sharing a sample, shoot me a PM with anything from my cupboard you’d like to try.

DaisyChubb

I hear ya – I definitely got that with a few flavours, although I usually go with delicate, at least it’s a good excuse to have a swap! lol

Indigobloom

uhoh. I just ordered a whole bunch of robust flavoured matchas. Eeeps!
Charoma: I can send you the rest of the sample I got from Azzrian! :)
Daisychubb: exactly!! I love swaps, they bring so many sampling opportunities and my cupboard gets to turn over a bit!

Backlogging from yesterday…YUMMO!

Finn88

Just curious…how do you make your matcha? I’ve been trying to get different opinions because I haven’t fallen in love with mine yet…

TeaEqualsBliss

I do mine straight up but you could try different milk bases. Maybe almond milk might be nice???

Sil

Finn – which matcha do you have? I know i really don’t like straight matcha, even flavoured but with milk it’s delicious! :)

Finn88

I have the Bavarian Creme. Idk what i am doing wrong lol but i always seem to have chuncks of matcha. I know your supposed to sift (99% sure thats what i do wrong) but i ampoor and dont own one lol. Anything makeshift ican use?

Inspired by VariaTea and her desiring some of this, I opened up the package (just received this morning!) to try it out.

Flavor Level: Delicate
Size: Large (60g)
Grade: Classic
Type: Regular
Buy it here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/cookies-and-cream-matcha.html

Opening the bag was a pleasant experience. I smelled mostly cream, with a hint of something chocolatey and cripsy, if you can smell crispy. Mixed it up in some coconut milk with the FREE wooden matcha spoon included in this order (thank you!), and started sipping away.

The first thing I taste is the cream, and then a very much oreo-like chocolate cookie. I haven’t had an actual oreo in many years due to grain intolerances, so I can only go on memory – and it actually feels like I’ve eaten an oreo cookie.

There is something that tastes a bit off to me though, and I can’t quite place it. Maybe a chemical-ness to the vanilla/cream? It may however be my coconut milk (the kids have a tendency to leave it out on the counter), so I’ll leave it at that.

A tasty treat, and one I’ll definitely have more of.

Preparation
Iced
VariaTEA

haha oh MissB, you are killing me here. Your positive review makes me want to order it that much more. I am glad you enjoyed it though :)

MissB

If it helps, I like some of the other flavors more. I adore cookies and cream ice cream, and this is.. good, however I’ll probably re-order other stuff. I can easily send you some, really!

VariaTEA

You have already given me so much but thank you for your offer. I really don’t know how I will ever repay your kindness. Although I am wondering what level of flavor your recommend for the Bavarian Cream? Is delicate enough to taste the flavors?

OMGsrsly

I’m not MissB, but I found Bavarian Cream to be best for mixing with other flavours. It’s essentially a vanilla-y pudding, so faint vanilla, lots of creaminess. I think I had robust but would order one level down.

VariaTEA

I am happy to take suggestions from all so thank you OMGsrsly I will definitely keep the level below Robust. Just out of curiosity, what flavor did you enjoy the most? In case I decide to order a few different flavors.

OMGsrsly

Pineapple, coconut, raspberries and cream, caramel. The French vanilla is more vanilla and less cream than the Bavarian cream. I’ve also had a lot of unusual flavours thanks to CrowKettle. None were bad! Hemp, lucuma, mangosteen (I think), etc. I want to try seabuckthorn.

VariaTEA

Thanks to Sil I was able to try Pineapple, Raspberries and Cream, and Caramel. She also sent me Madagascar Vanilla which I thought lacked some flavor. I will look into the French Vanilla and the Coconut though. Thanks for the input!

MissB

I’m so out of touch here… was out most of the night. So I’ve only tried two so far (pineapple and this one), and have like 10 others to go through still. Kind of excited to, really… and yet it now seems like a whole lotta matcha. ;)

JennyFur

I want that pineapple so bad I could cry. I can’t wait to get some money together and buy some.

VariaTEA

Red Leaf Tea is a company that I wish I could buy loads and loads of things from but I just can’t afford their costs. Their flavored matcha is amazing but even their buy – get – free options are costly. However, I was able to snag some Bavarian Cream and Cookies & Cream at half price so that was nice. One day, when I am not a student, and I have money, I intend to place a glorious Red Tea Leaf order with all the flavors. haha.

MissB

The small pouches (30g) seem so small to me – I’m scared to give it all away before I’ve even had a chance to try one, so my second order I grabbed large pouches. With Robert’s discount for reviewing, it makes it much more affordable. JennyFur, I’ll see how much Pineapple I have to send you a sample.

OMGsrsly

MissB, consider that you apparently only need 2g matcha per cup. (Apparently! I had no idea.) So you get 15 servings per small bag, which isn’t too bad.

MissB

Heh. Let’s just say I went a bit overboard when sharing samples… and then trying to figure out how much I needed per cup. Once Robert sent me a matcha spoon though – well now it’s perfect every time. I wish I could say it’s 1 tsp, or 2g, or whatever it is… it’s just a heaping spoonful of this really cute bamboo spoon.

Still, this is good to know OMGsrsly. I can now parse out some more for sharing.

I had this earlier today and I’ve got enough for one serving left. That’s good too because I’m just not a fan. It’s a bit of cream, and not enough cookie.

Fjellrev

And here this seemed to be such a popular one last year. My gut told me there wouldn’t be enough cookie in it!

Sil

Naw…there’s something about it that makes it not quite there

So Red Leaf Tea posted that they were coming out with a whole bunch of new flavors. So everyone got to vote for which new matcha flavor would be first to come out and go on sale. The winner was Cookies and Cream. So when I saw this i was so excited and just had to pick some up to try for myself. How can anyone say no to cookies and cream. So this is the second matcha ive ever tried.

Now a little information before i review this. About 2 years ago I found out that I have a gluten allergie, so I cant eat cookies at all. So when I saw this flavor, I knew I needed it. I miss cookies so much! And gluten free cookies dont even begin to compare to regular cookies. I love when I see things like this, cause I can feel like I’m cheating on the no gluten diet and not get sick :)

So what I ordered was… Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate. This is where you can get it http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/cookies-and-cream-matcha.html . So this time I thoguht I’d try it as a iced latte first ( thanks to Azzrian for giving me her recipe, I tweeked it about but mostly its her recipe). So what I did was took 1 tsp of my cookies and cream matcha and put it through my sifter. Added 2 oz of hot water and started whisking away until its all was blended. Added ice to my glass, then mixed about half a cup of milk into my bowl with the matcha. After everything was mixed together I poured it into my glass with the ice. Mixed once more a viola! Iced Cookies and Cream latte. Its tastes as great as it sounds. I found it a little bit bitter so I added half a packet of splenda to see if that would help and yum! Yup defitly not as bitter now. I wouldnt say it taste exactly like cookies , but hey cookies dont have matcha in it, so for a matcha flavor definitly a great flavor! Its got a nice sweet creamy flavor. I find with this one I dont taste the matcha as strongly as I do in the caramel matcha, but im not complaining at all both are amazingly delicious. But I think I prefer this one over the caramel one.

For all you gluten allergie or sensitivite people, this didnt make me sick at all. On the ingredients list it just says cookies and cream flavor, so I wasnt to sure if any of the ingredients would have gluten in it. But so far so good.

Terri HarpLady

Nice review, Cedes! I’m waiting for my first flavored Matcha, Caramel, to come. It’s a real walk on the wild side for me (I’ve only ever had Matcha plain, which I love), but I’m looking forward to the adventure. Re: the gluten free topic, I’ve found a few really fun paleo/gluten free sites, one of them being www.againstallgrain.com I can’t really much sweet stuff either, but I have made a few of her recipes (the meringues…ahhhh…& a few muffins…& her bread is interesting & doesn’t have a bunch of crap in it like most gluten free breads).

Cedes

Oh congrats on coming on the matcha train. You will be hooked! The caramel was the first I tried as well and now I need all of them. I will need to try some of these recipes, thanks so much! I find it hard to find good gluten free food that doesn’t taste like dust or have no taste at all.

Nik

Cedes, do you like snickerdoodles? I got these gluten-free snickerdoodles, once, that were fantastic. As a result, I think would feel comfortable trying other products from the same company. It’s been a while since I had them, but I think it was this one: http://www.enjoylifefoods.com/soft-baked-cookies/snickerdoodle/

Cedes

I’ve never had a snickerdoodle. Ill look into the company thanks!

ashmanra

Olivenation.com has a lot of gluten free foods, too. Fast, cheap shipping and I got great service from them.

I sucked this down so fast its hard to even do a review on it because it is SOOOOOOO GOOD! You can get some here:

http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/cookies-and-cream-matcha.html

The smell of this one was absolutely spot on for Cookies and Cream.

There is a chocolate note that is so perfect and the creamy notes of cloyingly sweet cookie filling! And OH YES cloyingly sweet is GOOD in this case!

Obviously this is a dessert matcha! But if you are like me and don’t mind having your dessert for breakfast then its A okay!

Granted we still have this beautiful matcha base for our health kick and no guilt right!?

I am one happy camper slugging down my cookies and cream for breakfast!

My matcha from Red Leaf Tea is as follows:

Options:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Flavor: Robust
Storage: Add Small Metal Tin Container (Holds up to 45g)
As I always mention because you never know when a new steepster may be reading – remember to grab up one of the screw top tins when you place your order! Excellent tins – air tight and keep you from making a matcha mess when you scoop!
This is the first matcha that I got the larger 60 gram size of! I normally buy the small in 30 gram but when I saw this available on sale nonetheless I grabbed up a large! I have NO regrets!

I would have got the large tin but I wanted my growing matcha collection to be uniform so I put the overflow in another container I had and put it away for safe keeping. I am sure once I suck down all of this in light speed I will be glad I hid a little from myself!
When I was at the store the other day I grabbed some Sweet Cream creamer to use in my latte blends instead of the vanilla. Today I mixed up a latte with the sweet cream which complimented this matcha perfectly! I only use a dash though to give my latte a thicker consistency as I don’t want the creamer to overshadow or cover the true matcha flavor. It was divine! I don’t know how I will keep myself from making a second cup! I am sitting here sucking on the ice cubes that still have some matcha clinging to it and I just want to dive in and be one with the remaining goodness!
I love the grassy vegetal creamy flavor of matcha and I realize purists would cringe at all the flavors being added but life is too short not to enjoy everything Red Leaf has to offer! I have yet to try a straight matcha from Red Leaf and that is in the plans for the near future but for now I am going to keep indulging in all the flavors I have yet to try and the new ones that are being slowly (painfully) released! I want them all NOW!
Remember you can get some of this right here:
http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/cookies-and-cream-matcha.html

Sil

you can just send your overflow to me… you know so everything looks the same in the cupboard lol I missed this sale…curse you for making me regret it!

Azzrian

Don’t worry THEY ARE ALL SOOOOOO GOOD! Tiramisu will be on sale this weekend which I can’t wait for! You should try to get in on that! :)

Zoltar

thank for the info i like tiramisu gonna be a good time to try if white matcha trigger allergy or not ( i hope not since they have so much flavor i want them all)

Azzrian

I pray for you that it does not trigger an allergy! I want you to be able to enjoy matcha with us! :)

Zoltar

well i still can drink green one since it take 5 to 10 minute to trigger so for 5 minute i’m like that was good i should take another cup then it’s trigger and become why the hell did i drink that ? i don’t want to learn i like matcha too much :P ( and it’s not like it is deadly ) but still if i can find one that i can drink without allergy i will be really happy :)

Azzrian

Yikes I mean at least you “can” drink them but still what a bad deal. Is there anything you can take before hand to help defray the symptoms?

Zoltar

well it is really seasonal allergy so i take the same thing i take all summer and the symptoms go away after some times ( any allergy treatment work ) people with bad summer allergy tend to get away from what give them reaction ( like i’m not gonna go roll in a flower field that would be real bad lol ) i just can’t do that with tea even if the matcha i have is probably far from the better it’s still tea

DaisyChubb

Aw Zoltar that sucks! Definitely try a different matcha base – the white and black bases should hopefully treat you well <3

CHAroma

“Dive in and be one with the remaining goodness!” LOL! Awesome!
