Still moving through some matcha that I have in my collection. When I saw this flavor pop up, I knew that I had to give this a try. Bavarian cream! Sounds too good to be true! Plus, I love that you can add your flavor to RED matcha. Red matcha is so difficult to find, so I’m really enjoying trying it paired with all of these different flavors.

So far I’ve had the french vanilla red matcha and the cheesecake red matcha. I think that I actually prefer the red matcha more than the classic green, but that’s just my preference, I suppose. This flavor surprised me… I was expecting something creamy, yes.. but something more…. custardy, sort of like vanilla pudding? I honestly tasted a creamy citrus flavor instead! How strange. I don’t think that bavarian cream has lemon or orange in it.. so it came as a surprise. It’s not a bad flavor, though, just not what I was looking for in a “bavarian cream matcha”. I’d like to have something more like vanilla custard. Again, it’s not bad, but there’s a little bit more tangy fruit in here than I’d like. I still think that it fit the creamy note nicely, especially when paired with the frothy rooibos base.

I’m looking forward to trying more matcha teas from Red Leaf. If you’re interested in this blend, you can purchase the tea here: http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/bavarian-cream-matcha.html. I suggest the red matcha base for something a little different!

Do you typically like rooibos? I’d try it but it usually tastes too much like wood for me to enjoy it. Always figured the red matcha would be just as strongly woodsy. Would you say so?

QueenOfTarts

Incendiare- I do typically like rooibos.. one of my favorite things to drink! Yes, the red matcha is definitely woody in its flavor.. but it’s a little bit more smooth & fun to drink. I don’t think there’s any way of getting around that characteristic rooibos note, unfortunately.. but it might be fun to give it a try in case the texture might sway you! :)

Fjellrev

Thanks! Maybe the trick would be to order the stronger flavouring too to mask the rooibos haha. Either way, sounds intriguing.

I have always ordered the “There’s matcha in there?!” flavor strength.. just because I find rooibos can be quite overpowering. It’s still strong even with that flavor, but it might be different to your tastebuds!

When I saw this flavor on sale, I had to grab it. What I was hoping for was something similar to the cheesecake flavor (to die for btw), but it isn’t quite that. I have had it a few times and I get a creaminess to it, but this evening when I opened it I smelled citrus. I don’t know if it was lemon or lime, but it isn’t really a fresh bright citrus. It is more of a preserved citrus peel scent. Tonight I’m having it with a little sugar and some Trader Joe’s soy creamer added in. I can imagine this as a pudding like filling for a donut. I’m tasting a little citrus in there, but I think most of the cream is coming from the soy creamer. I really like that I can enjoy this in the evenings, but it isn’t exactly what I was expecting and hoping for, which is something creamier on it’s own. I should have just bought the cheesecake version instead of holding this flavor to those expectations!
