I finally broke down and ordered a couple of matchas from Red Leaf after reading all of the reviews on Steepster. I love macadamia nuts so I really wanted to try this!

You get a little wooden scoop with your order from Red Leaf. I measured out one scoop and mixed it with 8 oz. of soymilk, warmed in the microwave. My tea was kind of lumpy because I was attempting to stir it with a coffee stirrer and not a whisk or anything. I was amazed at how good the flavor was here. It’s very rich and nut-like, I got the macadamia for sure. I might have made a mistake by having this so late in the day, but it sure is good. I can see how this would make an incredible dessert or whipped cream.

OMG! It is good!

Welcome to matcha!

TeaBrat

this is one of my first flavored matchas, but I do drink the plain stuff a lot (in smoothies mostly)

Mercuryhime

welcome to flavored matcha! :D

ashmanra

Hmm, that must be new! I have never received a little wooden scoop!

Rebecca Lynn

I never got a scoop either! Does it have to do with the size you order?

Amariel

Oh that sounds good!

Donna A

No scoop for me either. Macadamia nut is great. I’ve been happy with all the flavors I’ve tried so far.

TeaBrat

I got two of the small sizes…

Sorry in advance for the negative review. I know it won’t be popular and I don’t even know what to make of this. I ordered this the other month as basic grade and robust flavour. As soon as I opened the packet, it smelled extremely strongly of bitter chemicals. Nothing even remotely close to macadamia nuts, or food for that matter. So I thought maybe it needed to just settle for a bit.

I’ve had it on and off and have practically forced myself to drink it. No matter how I prepare it, it tastes like a combination of indescribable chemicals, and the very little food-like taste I get is like rotten nuts. I’m not sure if it’s just me, the flavouring is better as distinctive, or I got a bad batch?

Either way, I think I’m about 1/3 through my small packet of it. Oh well.

Azzrian

Oh yikes!!! I would let Red Leaf Tea know about this!

ashmanra

Definitely! I have the almond matcha and even though I don’t log it every time, I am having it one or two times a day. LOL! It is also robust flavor level and basic grade. I feel sure they will be very helpful!

Fjellrev

Hmm, I guess it’s worth a shot. I always feel bad bothering people! But perhaps what I’m doing, forcing myself to drink it, may not be the best idea.

That’s good to know about the almond in robust flavour. I don’t see why more flavouring should result in such a strong chemical odour/taste that I’m getting with mine.

Kittenna

Yes – definitely let them know about this, and I suspect that they will offer you a free new packet of it. It seems that sometimes things go a bit wrong with their flavourings – every now and then someone seems to get a matcha that tastes awful. (They sent me a coupon for a free cheesecake matcha when the one I received barely had any flavour. I admittedly haven’t gotten to drinking it yet as I like cold matcha lattes, and it’s the wrong time of year for that, but I’m hoping the second pouch is better!)

This is one of those matchas I probably wouldn’t have given a second look if not for a review by Azzrian. And I do love nutty things… ut my boyfriend is allergic to most of them so I try not to keep nutty treats in the house. They won’t affect him if I eat them, but I just feel rude chowing down on something delicious he can’t have! (Nutella is my one exception haha) Tea flavorings are usually fine, but I’m so used to overlooking things because of nuts that I had barely glanced at this one before scrolling past it. Now I am SO glad I gave it a shot! I got:

Size: Small (30 grams) though now I wish I’d gotten a large…
Grade: Classic
Flavor: Distinctive

This matcha smells AMAZING in the bag. Sometimes the flavors seem overpowering, but not this one, oh no. I wanted to stick my face in there! But that didn’t really seem like a good idea so I made an iced latte instead. As I was making it, I thought back to my first time with Red Leaf’s matcha and how careful I was about measuring everything out. Now, I’m rather gung-ho about it, not measuring the water or the matcha. I make some sort of matcha drink almost every day, it’s practically second nature at this point!

So, the flavor of this matcha is out of this world. It’s just… heaven. Pure, delicious macadamia nuts. This is going to sound odd, and I am not entirely sure how to describe it, but the nutty flavor just permeates the entire cup. Like, you know with other matchas you can taste the flavor and the matcha? It’ll taste like caramel and matcha. Well this, it tastes like macadamia was ground up and somehow bound to the matcha. It’s perfect harmony, different than any one I’ve ever tried! It is just SO GOOD. Here’s the link for where to try it, and you really really should:

I think I need to try more of their nutty teas if they are anywhere near as scrumptious as this one!

Fjellrev

I’ve been eyeing this one. :)

Azzrian

Oh yes this one is a total dream!

Red Leaf Tea

Please note that our nut flavors do not trigger allergies :-)

Alphakitty

That is fantastic news! I’m so excited, now he can try this nutty goodness without fear.

Red Leaf Tea

Yes, my supplier assured me that it’s safe, but since I have no allergies I can not confirm. Please try just a bit to make sure before you drink it all at once :-)

Nik

Ooooh…Nutella matcha? [crosses fingers]

Wow I can’t believe this one was not even in the Steepster Database!

Macadamia Nut Matcha
http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/macadamia-nut-matcha.html

Well I have to admit I was not as excited to try Macadamia Nut Matcha as I had been other flavors. A nut matcha to me seemed to be something one would mix with another outstanding sounding flavor, such as white chocolate mixed with macadamia nut perhaps. Alas white chocolate has not been released yet. I am sure I could have found something else to mix with this flavor but since it is my first time having it and I wanted to do a review I had it on its own.

I can only say WOW just simply WOW. This is the most amazing macadamia nut taste! It is such a strong flavor even at the robust level it actually may be a little too strong for some people. Not for me, I like my flavors strong, but if you want a more subtle flavor I would go with delicate.

All I can say is once again I am absolutely not disappointed in Red Leaf’s quality and flavors. I was so worried this flavor would only be so-so, a little nutty but not really having any true flavor unto itself. Fact is this tastes more macadamia nutty than anything else I can remember having outside of macadamia nuts themselves straight out of a can or jar, and I rarely have the nuts that way. Usually when I have macadamia nuts they are in a cookie somewhere.

Let me just say this, if I had to choose between a couple of the cookies, and this matcha – I would pick the matcha hands down every time! And know that while I say that White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are may all time favorite cookies!

While this is the BOMB on its own as a stand alone flavor I sure can’t wait for white chocolate to be released in RLT’s lineup because I would in fact enjoy very much mixing these two wonderful flavors!

As always RLT’s base matcha is superior to any other I have had, and I love the customer service, fast shipping, and loyalty program.

My Macadamia Nut Matcha from Red Leaf Tea was composed of the following:

Options:
Size : Small, Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade), Flavor: Robust, Storage : Add Small Metal Tin Container (Holds up to 45g), Accessories: None

Thank you, Incendiare, for the awesome samples! I know you weren’t sold on this flavouring, but it made a delicious morning latte today. The royal grade is pretty fine, and I’m going to have a hard time not always opting for it now.. I’m not even going to try, actually. The matcha here mixes so smoothly!

I’ll admit that the macadamia nut flavouring is a tad abrasive. These guys taste like they’re loaded with salt, and leave that tingling aftertaste. They’re more the nuts you’d eat with beer and jerky than the kind you find flirting with desserts. The effect is strange in a latte, but not unpleasant. I still consumed this like I do all my other matcha lattes- waay too quickly. Always a good sign.

I can’t wait to try my matcha samples! I don’t have any milk though… I wonder if that’s enough to motivate me to go for a walk to get some. :D

CrowKettle

Matcha is usually the deciding factor that gets me out the door when I’m out of milk.. :P

Sil

Wish you guys could come her and take all my matcha to sample lol

OMGsrsly

I think we wish that too, Sil! :)

CrowKettle

Yes we do.

Sil

tell you what…maybe we can organize a swap box or something when jenn gets here to send stuff back and forth from different canadian shops heh

Another sipdown! (102 + possibly 8 more?)

This was really tasty, Incendiare, so thank you for sharing! It smelled good enough that it motivated me to go for a walk and buy some milk. :)

I drank it down so quickly though that I couldn’t really remember the flavours, but I know I liked it.

I drank this at 6, and I think that maybe part of the reason I’m still awake and power-cleaning while the baby is down for the night is this matcha. :P Also, who needs sleep when we have tea? I’ll be grumpy in the morning until I make my first cuppa. (You know you’re addicted when…)

Still, I’m hoping she’ll sleep until 7 or 8. :P

Short Sorceress

My husband thinks I’m nuts when I go on my late night (caffeine fueled) cleaning sprees, but it is the only time I don’t have a toddler running around undoing all my work. It is amazing just how big a mess such a small person can make in a matter of seconds.

This is a good one. It took some work to figure out the right proportions (which I’m learning is key to all of them), but once I figure out the optimal for me I really enjoyed it. The macadamia nut flavor is done really well. I may mix it with a bit with caramel. Fun to experiment with these!

First, a big thanks to Azzrian and AlphaKitty for their reviews on this flavor, because who knows when I would have tried it otherwise. There are so many choices! With that being said, I was very excited about preparing this today, since I have just purchased an Aerolatte, a milk frothing device. With a $5.00 off coupon at my local home goods store, this device was super cheap, and it works great! I sifted the matcha to get rid of lumps, and I used a heaping 1/2 teaspoon in 2 oz water plus 6 oz cold almond milk with a splash of cream and some sweetener. This stuff really does smell good in the bag. I ordered the robust flavor, but I’m glad I was generous with the amount of matcha, because I think you need a little more when you are using milk rather than water as a base. This thing was amazing. I ended up making a second one it was so good and I wanted a 3rd! The frother worked great-so quick- and it made it so nice and foamy, which I love. I have enjoyed every flavor so far from Red Leaf-this may be my favorite, but it’s hard to say because I love Caramel, Boysenberry, and Pumpkin Pie, and Black Cherry is on the way. To me, these are as satisfying as a milk shake and a lot fewer calories.

TeaBrat

oooh, I ordered this today!

You will like it a lot Amy!

Another sipdown, thanks to Incendiare. (I’m going through smaller packages in the morning so I can feel accomplished!)

I… really don’t care for this one. It’s missing caramel and chocolate flavours. Maybe a little salt. Of the three I’ve tried this week, French Vanilla is my favourite. Then Boston Cream, then this one way on the other side of the page. :/

Ahh well, it’s not undrinkable, I just don’t care for the flavour.

Amariel

Same for me…I thought maybe it was just the way I made it on the ferry. But it might have been the tea too.

Fjellrev

I personally think it’s too artificial/chemical in flavour. Too bad since this is royal grade. But I’m glad I’m not alone! Mine was the first “negative” review while the previous ones were all 90+. Thought I was crazy. :p

OMGsrsly

Even the coconut matchaccino can sometimes be too artificial/chemical flavoured for me. I really like it and it works super well in fruit smoothies, but I feel like I could do with maybe half the flavour.

Backlog…I had this on Wednesday, on the ferry to Vancouver for our meetup…I tried making it with a small mason jar and some hot water from the ferry and some milk. It was probably the hasty preparation, but it isn’t a favourite.

Thanks to Incendiare for the chance to try this matcha. I have some french vanilla that I think I will like better.
