Montreal is freezing! As in I-got-brain-freeze-and-my-legs-went-numb-in-the-20-minutes-it-took-to-walk-home freezing. So, when I got home at 5:50 from class, I had to make the decision to turn around and be responsible and go to Body Pump or to walk in, start my weekend early, and drink copious amounts of tea. I chose the latter. I dumped the cold mug of Cinnamon Chocolate Brownie into a glass and started the kettle to brew two fresh cups.

While I waited, I remembered I haven’t had any milk today which meant MATCHA. Specifically this one which I have been thinking about all day! Cavocorax, I honestly don’t know how I can thank you for sharing this with me because it is truly amazing!!! I taste caramel more in this than I did in the plain caramel matcha. And the popcorn just adds a layer of butteriness and flavor that just makes this sooooooooo goooood. I am in love! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Oh and a side note. My sweats are all in the laundry so I put on the next warmest thing I own…a batman onesie. Complete with cape and cowl. So that sort of elevates this a tad as well :P

Courtney

OMG THE BATMAN ONESIE IS AMAZING.

Ana

Batman onesie?! YES!

VariaTEA

haha. It is pretty awesome. It is one of three onsies I own. One of the onesies, a sock monkey onesie, I actually got for $1 because the Target employee screwed and scanned it through as chocolate. My mom and I didn’t realize until we got home a few hours later.

Roswell Strange

Ick, Batman. I’m totally a Marvel girl (Spiderman ForEVAH). I have Spiderman Bedsheets/blankets/pillows/toques/hoodies/t-shirts/jewelry. My Onesie is sock monkeys though…

VariaTEA

Roswell Strange, I would say our friendship is over but I too love me some Marvel. I have an Avengers sweater lying on my bed next to me and a Spiderman tee-shirt which is in the laundry. However, I grew up as the younger sister of a Batman loving brother. In fact, we call his car the batmobile because I decked it out in all things batman a few years back (as in seat covers, steering wheel covers, break light stickers so when he breaks it is the batman symbol) and we have home video of him saying he is batman at only 2 years old. I grew up with it :)

keychange

You made two, no three great decisions. 1) eff body pump when it’s cold; 2) Onesys are where it’s at; and 3) you had tea. You win.

VariaTEA

Though I also grew up with X-men (last year I got my brother this huge Wolverine pez dispenser for his birthday :P), Spiderman, Deadpool, etc. Basically there was a lot of comic books and superheros around (the perks of an older brother).

VariaTEA

And thank you keychange, it definitely feels like right decisions were made :)

Roswell Strange

I’ll admit to having one favourite DC “Hero” (not really an apt character description) whom I was reminded of thanks to your Monk’s blend tasting note, additionally. When I try to explain him to people, they always think I’m lying! I grew up with X-Men too; they’re right up there with Spiderman, though personally I don’t really love Wolverine all too much.

VariaTEA

I actually wasn’t into Wolverine much either. I liked Storm and Rogue but that may have more to do with their gender than their actual powers. Though their powers are pretty cool.

Also, they actually filmed the most recent X-men movie in Montreal. I had a couple of friends stalk the set in hopes of finding Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, and James McAvoy.

Ana

Nevermind my large stack of Hawkeye comics sitting next to my desk.

__Morgana__

Now this is funny because I didn’t know until today that they MADE onesies for adults. I thought of them only as the things you put babies in! Of course, living where I do now (my son wore shorts to school today… I know, I’m sorry) there is not much need for this sort of bodily envelopment except a few nights a year, but I love the idea!

Roswell Strange

I adored Rogue, Iceman, Storm, Nightcrawler, Mystique, and Azazel! No one I knew was able to understand how excited I was at the inclusion of Azazel in First Class. They just totally set it up to kind of delve into Mystique/Azazel’s plotlines with Nightcrawler – though I doubt they actually will go that route…

VariaTEA

I felt so bad for Azazel and Riptide. They were kinda just left as background characters the whole time. Actually, I mostly felt bad for Riptide given they didn’t even mention who he was. Like if you had never read the comics, he was sorta just a bonus mutant who was there.

Roswell Strange

Never really liked Riptide ;P

VariaTEA

Neither did I but I still felt bad that they sorta just tossed him in as filler. He really did not need to be in the movie other than Shaw needed more people on his team.

OMGsrsly

Batman onesie?! So awesome. :D

The tasting notes on this one have been SO good, I kind of had super high expectations going into it. I mean, Azzrian’s favorite matcha?! As the current matcha queen of steepster, I really trust her opinion so yes, I had high hopes for this one! I snagged one as soon as it went on sale. As a side note, I hate my post office! The tracking info on stuff coming to me is totally messed up, and it keeps saying stuff is in transit after it’s arrived or that it’s been sitting in my post office for a week and hasn’t been delivered, it’s so annoying! I think they held this one “hostage” for a while, since it took way longer than usual and I only got it after I went there and bugged them. But anyway, back to tea! I got:

Size: Small (30 grams)
Base: Classic Matcha
Flavor: Delicate

I’m not sure why I went with delicate over distinctive (my usual), I just had a feeling that it’d be best with a light flavor. The smell in the bag is amazing, caramel and popcorn and BUTTER! It reminds me of the microwave caramel popcorn they used to make… they still make some kinds now, but this one came with a huge chunk of caramel to put in the bag after you warmed up the popcorn so instead of some caramel glaze it was ACTUAL gooey, delicious caramel on your popcorn. That stuff was soooo good, but I guess it’s just cheaper to skimp out and glaze them. Sigh.

I whipped this up last night as a hot latte, and holy moly it is just… perfect. Amazing! You can taste ALL of the levels of flavor, even with the delicate option. There’s rich, fresh-made caramel flavor, reminiscent of (unsurprisingly) caramel, one of the classic and most-loved Red Leaf flavors. Then there’s the popcorn, without the crunch but with that almost fluffy, airy taste. Then, BUTTER. I can’t believe there’s actual slightly salty butter flavor in here! It makes this sooo rich and delicious and just perfect. No mistaking what flavor this is! It so reminds me of the old caramel popcorn, it’s like having it back finally!

Of course because I went with delicate, the matcha flavor isn’t overpowered but makes for a nice base of sorts, keeping the caramel flavor from getting too heavy. And as much as I totally love this one, I REALLY want to try it with a black base with the distinctive level of flavoring… just thinking about adding those chocolate cookie notes to this makes my brain explode! If you love dessert matchas like me, get this. Heck, if you love matcha, get this. If you love tea at all get this! Really, it is just perfect.

Azzrian

Yup this, butterscotch, and Macadamia Nut are in fact my favorite of the dessert flavors! :)
SOOOO GOOD!

LiberTEAS

I so remember that caramel corn… it was so amazing.

Let me just start by saying this tea rivals my love for Butterscotch matcha!
I don’t know if I can put into words just how delectable this matcha is!
It tastes like popcorn (check)
It tastes like caramel (check)
It tastes like butter (check)
So we have here a caramel-y, buttery, smooth, popcorn matcha that tastes extra smooth and creamy due to the excellent matcha base provided to us by Red Leaf Tea!

I made mine into a latte with creamer, milk, and ice.

This is perfect for the upcoming season, fall, Halloween on the way, and it makes me think of caramel popcorn balls! You know you loved getting those as a kid. Well I know I did, still do haha, and now days you don’t have to make them at home but can buy them pre-made. Yet nothing is as good as making them at home, and the taste is by far better when you do! This matcha tastes like the homemade kind, where the sugars become caramelized and have that toasty just almost burnt flavor but its not burnt and don’t let that one word scare you away – its just caramelized like the crust on a creme brulee dessert! If you have never had one of those your totally missing out!

As a type 1 diabetic let me just say that with all these flavor selections Red Leaf Tea has its like a miracle to me! Now I am not sure about sugar content in the matcha since they are flavored and all, but I have not had any issues with my blood sugars related to drinking these matcha, of course if you have health concerns be sure you monitor yourself closely until you have an established base line. However, this is a way for me to indulge in so many temptations without suffering consequences. Now while nothing can replace a TRUE caramel popcorn or popcorn ball I will tell you sometimes, in some ways I prefer my yummy matcha from RLT to the real deal!

If you are a dieter, work out fanatic, into health, or even appreciate the wonderful benefits of matcha tea, you can’t go wrong with Red Leaf I mean with all those flavors there is surely at least a handful you will find as amazing I have this one and Butterscotch just to name my top two favorites right now.

When I opened my package of Caramel Popcorn …. Oh my eyes ROLLED back into my skull haha, and I felt so enraptured by the aromas! I am still sitting here with this matcha and it is one of the thickest creamiest matcha I have had to date and I have had a TON of matcha!

I got the robust flavor in the basic matcha quality and it is STELLAR!

Get yours here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/caramel-popcorn-matcha.html

Azzrian

Haha I forgot about how much I also love Macadamia Nut!!! Oh boy MORE MATCHA!!!!

momo

And there goes another on my list of ones I will need to order.

Azzrian

My favorites so far are this, butterscotch, macadamia nut, and for a fruit BOYSENBERRY! OMG I love matcha!

Cedes

Jeez I ordered mine a day after you and mine hasn’t been shipped yet, and you got yours already! And as good as your butterscotch :O I will also need to get this one too! I just found out I’m type 2 diabetic so no sugar for me either. Yay for sweet teas!

Azzrian

Yes it is as good as butterscotch!!! :)
Sorry about the type 2 diabetes! PM me if you need any help with that.

Donna A

I ordered boysenberry yesterday thanks to Azzrian’s recommendation, plus the pumpkin pie. I really like the Caramel. Caramel Popcorn sounds awesome.

Cedes

I’d definitely appreciate any tips, sent you a PM.

Azzrian

Yeah I was just doing some other things and remembered I had seen an email about your PM! DUAH I am going to reply now :)

Babble

LOL I just noticed the description you put in for this matcha.

Oh my, this is so delicious. I think I’ve figured out how to make this to my liking now. Yay!

Size: Large (60g)
Flavor: Delicate
Quality: Basic
Type: Regular
http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/caramel-popcorn-matcha.html

Mixed up a heaping matcha spoon of matcha with about 8oz of coconut milk, and whisked it all together with my new chasen (thanks Zen Tea, for shipping that in record time, yet again!) The chasen made all the difference and it took me less than 15 seconds to get all the globs out.

Out of the bag, this definitely smells like a ooey, gooey caramel popcorn. My mouth watered immediately. So good! Mixed up, this tastes almost exactly as it’s described: buttery, caramel-y popcorn. My only complaint is that I didn’t order it with a stronger flavor level. I’ll order it as distinctive next time – which I’m definitely doing. Ordering more, that is… when I’m done the massive amount that I have now.

VariaTEA

Yum! Sounds tasty.

JennyFur

I definitly need to just buck up and buy some of their stuff. The Caramel I got from you has me hooked and the only kind of matcha I can get by me is unflavored and its just…not hitting the spot.

MissB

Yep. I’m really glad I bit the bullet and just bought a bunch. It’s pricey, and worth it. I have nothing like it nearby either.

A new froyo shop opened up in the shopping center near my apartment complex, and I’ve already been twice. It opened Friday, lol.

This time I decided to try more of the flavors, starting with Caramel Pretzel, which I ended up getting. So then I decided that wasn’t enough, and I needed more caramel…despite having chocolate turtles filled with caramel, and caramel sauce itself on this caramel flavored yogurt. Hahaha.

Okay really I’m just obsessed with the chawan.

And no. No I do not like this one. I can’t even drink it because of the way it smells. This is just not for me. I had so much hope for it but ughhhh I can’t.

Which makes it more like the kettle corn flavor at the froyo shop. There are some things that just don’t work for me.

Azzrian

Aweee thats too bad girl because this is one of my all time favorites!! :(
Bummer.

momo

Azzrian, do you want it? There’s no way I am ever going to drink it. I put it in my swap post.

Babble

Eh, that’s the beauty of Steepster. Some stuff is just not someone’s cup of tea (see what I did there?). I personally loved this, but I wasn’t crazy about the other matcha flavors.

Kittenna

Oooh, ooh, pick me! I’d love to try this one :D

momo

you can have it!

Kittenna

:D It was on my shortlist of matches to buy on my likely last/second-last order, but mocha won out.

Quite note: We’re running out the door and I needed a boost so I drank some of this with milk, whipped up. It was GREAT. Just, great! It was sweet and popcorny and for some reason that didn’t make THIS an odd combo.

(Mmmmm… love it)

Special Thanks to Azzrian for this one! It smells more like Popcorn than Caramel and it tastes a bit more like Caramel than popcorn…esp up front. On the lingering aftertaste it takes more like popcorn, tho. This is a piece of work, it really is! Tasty! YUM!

Oh yummy! This is the last “unopened” Matcha that I have in the house! Don’t cry for me though, I have an order on it’s way that will provide me with much Matcha goodness. In the meantime, I have A TON (well, maybe not a ton, but a whole heck of a lot) of Matcha to keep me occupied. As well as other teas.

This is yummy. While preparing it traditionally with hot water and whisking, I thought, I shouldn’t turn this into a latte, milk with popcorn sounds weird. BUT… I took my first sip and decided while it was good, it needed something else. The caramel needed more creaminess. So a splash (a little tiny splash) of milk was added and this made it just perfect! It is sweet and creamy and caramel-y, but, with a delicious popcorn flavor too, and maybe just a hint of saltiness in all of it. The flavor is really good… maybe even better than the straight up caramel. Maybe. Might need to have it a couple more times … or more than a couple … to determine which is better.

This is incredibly wonderful though. The Matcha offers just a hint of vegetative flavor and the smooth, luscious texture of the Matcha really adds to the caramel-y flavor of the overall taste. I taste butter in this, probably a combination of the flavoring and the Matcha and it is divine. When it comes to butter … I subscribe to the Paula Deen school of thought: Butter makes it better. And in this case, the buttery flavor really does make it better … it enhances the caramel tones, and brings out the popcorn notes.

Oh so good. You’ve got to try this! Well, what are you waiting for? Here’s the link: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/caramel-popcorn-matcha.html So now there’s no excuse. Get there … and do it now, and order some. You’ll be glad you did.

My went with my “go-to” specifications for this order, choosing the classic grade of Matcha with the distinctive flavoring. It’s just right. I think that more flavoring, while probably incredible, would end up diluting the flavor of the Matcha too much. The Matcha now is a little obscured, not as strong as it is in some of the other flavored Matcha, but, it all comes together in a really delicious way. I do like to taste the Matcha, so I’m glad I went with the distinctive level of flavoring here.

A really yummy treat. Really glad I got this one. Now… imagine this if you would. Imagine a combination of this, plus some of the chocolate Matcha, plus some of the almond Matcha. Would that not be decadence X3?

Might have to get some of the other two Matcha just so that I can have that. Yep… going to have to do that I think, with my next order.

Helena

oooh matcha experiments! sounds like yummy fun :D

After a tough battle of matcha sales, caramel popcorn won, so when it was on sale I had to grab it. I love kettle corn, but I was a little hesitant. After all, I already had caramel flavored matcha. Would this be any different? And the verdict is a resounding YES!

As always, the matcha smells wonderful, and potent (that’s what I get for getting robust flavoring). The boyfriend came in and asked if I was baking cookies, but nope, just opening a bag of really strong smelling matcha.

This matcha is even better than caramel because it has a lot more complex flavoring in it. I can taste the caramel, which is nice, but I can also taste the butter notes and the popcorn notes. I would say it’s almost a little more buttery popcorn than sweet popcorn, but then again I didn’t add any sweetener. I bet if you really wanted the kettle corn effect, you could add some sweetener and make it pop.

I put this in a water bottle tonight and brewed it up cold. I wasn’t sure how well it would do, but the flavoring really holds up. Not need to add any sweetener because the flavor just pops. Even the boyfriend admitted that it was very tasty.

All in all a surprisingly good matcha, and this coming from someone who’s not too big on desert matchas.

The matcha can be purchased from here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/caramel-popcorn-matcha.html

Darn, I wish I had gotten this one when it was on sale!

Azzrian

I grabbed a LARGE when it was on sale and stocked up because I KNOW I will go through this super fast!

DaisyChubb

I got this in my latest order, not on sale, but it seemed like it was worth it thanks to all the reviews ;)
