I’ve tried a lot of Red Leaf flavoured matchas recently, so I was curious to see how another company’s matcha would compare.
I’m a lazy matcha drinker. I like to throw it in the blender with some almond milk and blend until it’s light and frothy. Red Leaf matchas blend really well, with no clumps at all. My Ginger matcha from Tealux didn’t blend nearly as well, unfortunately. The first few sips were really nice, and the ginger taste was definitely present. The bottom of the cup was all clumps, though, and I ended up dumping some of it down the drain.
I’m giving this a slightly higher rating than I typically would, as this would be a good matcha if you want something at a good price and you’re in the habit of sifting your matcha really well before using it. I’m just not in that habit yet.
Oh, and I just drank it about 10 min ago and I feel a bit wired already. Wow. I probably should have tried this earlier in the day.
