Having just tried the Carob Red Matcha and thus coming off a slight disappointment, I was cautiously excited to try the Tiramisu Red Matcha. I ordered the “Robust” flavour level, hoping that would take some edge off the rooibos. And I was right. It took all the edge. Right off!
When I opened the bag, my entire apartment was instantly transformed into an Italian bakery. I have to say, the smell was divine and there was no rooibos to it. But then I got a little too close to it and took a whiff while pouring it into my glass storage container. BIG mistake! I should have known. If the smell was so strong as to penetrate every corner of my 2-bedroom apartment upon merely opening the bag, it would have to be insane when you got close to it. I actually had to take a day off and delay my drinking this because I couldn’t get over associating the flavour with nausea. I made some today with cold almond milk and it was much more than just red rooibos. I have to say the flavour is authentic tiramisu. It’s absolutely delicious, but still a little too strong for my liking. I would order this again but wouldn’t go any higher than the “Delicate” level. All in all, this was good and not too rooibos-y.
