Backlogging review on Red Leaf’s matcha – Mint Chocolate
My matcha was composed of the following:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Those who know me, know that i am a HUGE fan of mint chocolate. Jr. Mints are my movie treat of choice in terms of chocolate. This was one of the flavours i picked up as part of a buy 3, get one free pack. As a result, i opted for the distinctive level of flavouring as i’ve had some bad luck with robust on fruit flavours that i bought with it.
This is a great matcha for lattes! I really like how the chocolate and mint are blended together. I wasn’t as much a fan of the belgian chocolate matcha, so i was happy to find that the chocolate flavouring in this one is fairly smooth and lacks that weird artificial, fake chocolate sort of taste. I don’t know that i would drink this without milk, as i find the creaminess in the milk helps to really bring out the minty chocolate goodness. My only complaint? This is a matcha i want to drink in Robust flavouring! I found that every time i had it, i wanted just a bit more intense flavouring. So this WILL likely be a re-order but in Robust flavouring! Thanks Red leaf!
