drank Rooibos matcha by Davidson's
2805 tasting notes

In my desperation for finding a replacement for the Starbucks blossoming rose rooibos latte, I bought a gigantic 16 oz bag (that’s 455 g!) of this on amazon.

Pros
-cheap because it is in bulk
-ground rooibos is difficult to find

Cons
-more gritty than Starbucks or Red Leaf/Matcha Outlet rooibos matcha
-doesn’t really dissolve very well
-larger bits tend to accumulate at the bottom of the cup

So for the price, this can’t be beat. However it is definitely not as fine or powdery as any other rooibos matcha I have come across. Even mixed into milk you can feel all of the gritty texture.

Flavors: Rooibos, Sweet, Wood

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 tsp 15 OZ / 450 ML

I need to try rooibos matcha! I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me until just now.

A matcha that does not dissolve well kinda defeats its purpose! :)

I appreciate the boldness of trying a new tea by ordering a pound of it, though. I need to try rooibos matcha but I am too chicken to order a pound of it.

I’ve tried many different rooibos matchas before that were fine. This was just a more economical way and I thought I’d try this brand now that matcha outlet doesn’t sell ground rooibos.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
