My matcha was composed of the following:
Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Flavor: Distinctive

I ordered this flavour on a whim. I like macademia nuts, and i love praline flavours…so i figured what the heck. Red Leaf has been good to us and I also wanted to try some of the flavours that didn’t seem to pop up as much.
Opening this, there’s a strong macadamia nut flavour, with faint undertones of a bit of a chemical smell. I opted to drink this as a latte simply to add some creaminess to the taste. Matcha lattes with redleaf are my favourite! i rarely drink them straight unless it’s just to see if the flavours taste better because i haven’t liked it as a latte flavour.
Final verdict on this? It tastes like the nut, but it’s missing the caramel praline flavour that would be perfect with this taste! There’s no bitterness to this but i REALLY was hoping for a different flavour to come off. I almost felt like i could have just been drinking the macadamia nut matcha that red leaf also has. After i added a bit of sugar to this, it helped a little bit to draw the flavour out a little more, but i’m not a fan of having to add sweetner to my teas and matcha. Overall not bad, but there are others i like WAY more!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
