From Red Leaf Tea

Lime Matcha’s rich deeply tangy flavor is excellent for many baked foods. It also lends its rich freshness to many pies, ice creams and smoothies. It also makes an exceptional accompaniment for many fish dishes because it brings out the taste of the fish in a deliciously satisfying way. This flavor is also a taste enhancer and brings out the true taste of many low taste foods and drinks. It is great for special occasions where people need their taste buds enlivened by the added presence of Lime Matcha in their foods and drinks.

This taste-enhancing flavor is wonderful for the making of many candies which both children and adults enjoy. Its special tangy appeal as well as hint of acidic essence creates some excitement for the taste buds. Lime Matcha is especially wonderful in many drinks like sherbet where its presence brings out the true taste of this social drink. Lime Matcha foods and drinks leave many people yearning for more.

I ordered this particular flavor of Matcha primarily because of the mixing options it offered … primarily, I thought that lime and watermelon Matcha would taste amazing … and I also figured that it would add a bright citrus flavor to smoothies as well.

The aroma is very lime. But there’s more to it than just that. It actually smells like a lime tree … like the aroma that one might experience if sitting beneath a lime tree. The limes, the blossoms, the leaves, the earth, even the tree itself. It’s bright and citrus-y but also earthy.

The flavor is lime and matcha (oddly enough! ha!) but it isn’t overwhelmingly tart. The sweet flavors of the matcha sort of offset some of the tartness that I expected – or at least I think so. I expected something that would encourage a little bit of a pucker. But I’m not disappointed that it isn’t sour as I’m not a big fan of sour taste. This is more sweet-and-sour, with a leaning toward the sweet, and even a bit of bitterness from the lime. This makes me wonder how it might be if I added a pinch of salt to the Matcha before I whisk, I might try that next time to see if the bitterness is more balanced.

As it is though, it’s not bad at all … in fact, it’s really quite good. Not as good as the licorice Matcha I had a while ago, but, it’s still quite nice. It has a bit of an acidic bitterness, but it isn’t too much of either of these elements, and the fruit flavor gives off a bit of sweetness and seems to bring out some of the earthier qualities of the Matcha that I don’t often experience in pure Matcha.

It is smooth and creamy and has a flavor that is quite unlike the other Matcha that I’ve tried – and if for no other reason, I find that to be a good reason to try this one. I love the brightness, and I’m thinking that now I must get some of the lemon Matcha too … another blending possibility with this one! Mmm… Lemon-Lime Matcha!

You can find this deliciously different Lime Matcha here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/lime-matcha.html

EDITED TO ADD: The specs for this order are my usual go-to specifications: basic/classic grade Matcha with distinctive level of flavoring.

Mercuryhime

put it in a margarita! It’ll be so pretty!

LiberTEAS

Well, I don’t really drink alcohol, so I’m not in to Margaritas much. This might also be pretty good with lemon lime soda… might have to try that!

Mercuryhime

I’m not a fan of alcohol either, but it looked so pretty in a frosty martini glass with a curl of lime zest in my imagination. :)

LiberTEAS

yes, I bet it would be pretty. And it might even be tasty… but not something I’d drink regularly. :)

MegWesley

Whenever I see the lime matcha, I think of “put the lime and the coconut” song. Then I think of the coconut matcha. I wonder if they would actually taste good together?

Azzrian

I am considering this one.

LiberTEAS

@Meg: well, I’ve tasted lime and coconut flavored tea before (although I’ve not combined the lime and the coconut matcha yet), and it was pretty amazing.

I was very excited to try the Lime Matcha. I opened this matcha and put it into a tin to keep it fresh. The small size fits perfect in the tin with a little wiggle room…enough to be able to get the measuring spoon in. I didn’t have any doubts that this matcha would be tasty. Lime flavored things are so popular nowadays…lime popcorn…lime and sea salt chips….etc.
I decided to first prepare this matcha cold with just water. I added 1 tsp to a 16.9oz bottle and shook it up. I then put it into the freezer as I really wanted it cold. If I had let it stay in there overnight I could have had lime matcha popsicles! I didn’t think about that till after I drank it so I’ll have to try that next time. The lime added just enough tartness to give a kick to otherwise boring water. This matcha intrigued me so much that I decided to prepare it again. This time I used a bit of seltzer (bubbly) water. I think I like it even better this way! I did add a touch of sugar to both preparations.
I purchased this with the starter matcha. If I had really thought about it, I think I would have purchased white matcha as I think it would give it an even lighter flavor. Guess I’ll just have to order it again!
Red Leaf just keeps on amazing me with their creative flavors and the lime flavored matcha does not disappoint!
Here is how I ordered my Lime Matcha from Red Leaf Tea:
Size: Small
Quality: Classic Starter Grade
Flavor: Delicate
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.
