304 Tasting Notes

Smells like a vanilla pie out of the bag. I have never had a vanilla pie, but this is what it would smell like and taste like. Very creamy and rich. I will be honest here, I have not tried this plain, I have used this to mix with other flavored matchas. This blend is the best mixer in terms of adding dimension to another flavor, it just seems to bump up the delicious factor on any other matcha in my cupboard. I highly recommend this matcha, the vanilla is the best I have experienced in a a tea, and I have tried several vanilla teas in my tea drinking career. Head on over to Redleaf Tea and pick up your own bag of this wonderfully flavored matcha:

Adding this Madasgascar Vanilla to the Pumpkin pie matcha really bumps up the creaminess of the Pumpkin and adds the right amount of smoothness to make this one blend I don’t seem to get tired prof drinking every morning. Vanilla chai was my first tea love, I drank boxes of Bigelowes Vanilla Chai tea, I knew the minute I ordered this MV matcha that I would be mixing it with my chai matcha and you know what? I am in love with this flavor profile all over again, except that now I have the antioxidant properties of a good matcha and a superb Madasgascar Vanilla in my cup.

Picked another box of this at my local grocery store. I really enjoy drinking
this after a meal, the peppermint comes through first followed by a creaminess that is very satisfying.

This has become my morning tea. The key here is to add 1/2 tsp of matcha, 1/4 tsp of raw sugar, enough water to dissolve, whisk gently ( this is where I was messing up) top with milk and ENJOY!
Drinking this each day has made some health problems go away. Doing a happy dance and loving my pumpkin pie matcha:)

I really like this one. Green tea that is not grassy and the sweet hit of peppermint. Perfect after dinner. Too bad this is seasonal…must stock up.

This is a really light EG. Very drinkable, It leaves a peppery aftertaste that I find delightful.

A mild EG. Very drinkable, more like a Lady Grey.

Got this for birthday from a dear friend. Once I took off the cellophane wrapping, the ripeness of sweet peaches hit my senses. I brewed up a bag in my favorite tea cup. The Ceylon tea is perfectly balanced, no bitterness here:) and the peach comes through beautifully. All in all a very good cuppa.

Amy: my daughter has already finished her large tin and I have offered to give her what remains of my small end when she comes to visit this week! I think you will like it a lot. As a hot chocolate replacement, it is divine. One cup milk warmed in microwave with one teaspoon sugar, lightly blended, equals magnifico!

Grrrr, autocorrect! Small one, not small end!

TeaBrat

thanks, I will try it that way!

I have had this twice today. The spice level is spot on. I think I like this one better than the chai matcha, but it is close between the two:)

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
