Butterscotch Matcha? Um … YES please!
This Butterscotch Flavored Matcha from Red Leaf Tea is absolutely YUMMY! Sweet and deliciously treat-y! This makes a perfect dessert if you want something decadent tasting without the calories that often goes with such an indulgence. Even when prepared as a latte (with the addition of milk) this Matcha has fewer calories than a rich dessert would, and as an added bonus, you also get the health benefits of the powdered green tea leaf!
As I’ve often mentioned, one of my favorite things about the flavored Matcha selections from Red Leaf Tea is that you can customize your flavored Matcha experience. You can choose flavor levels that range from “Delicate” to “There’s Matcha in There?!” (Suggesting that it tastes more like the flavor than the tea itself) … and I like that I have that choice. I also like that I can choose the grade of Matcha – from Classic to Imperial … I can also choose to have a white tea Matcha, black tea Matcha or a Red tea Matcha (made from Rooibos) … and I can choose to have Organic or conventionally grown tea. If I think that a blend might be tasty with a 50-50 mix of white tea Matcha and Green Tea Matcha … I can choose that too! I love all the options that are offered from Red Leaf Tea!
This particular flavored matcha was crafted using the Classic grade Matcha with a Robust amount of flavoring. And I like that I taste both the Matcha and the Butterscotch here. The butterscotch flavor is strong but doesn’t overpower the sweet, slightly vegetal taste of the Matcha. There is a delightful balance here that is really delicious.
This is a Matcha that I recommend trying as a latte – the butterscotch flavor lends itself well to the creaminess from a latte! When prepared traditionally, the Matcha is itself a creamy tasting/textured tea so you do get a certain creaminess from the traditional preparation, but, I find that by adding a splash of warmed milk I get a much more satisfying taste and texture. The milk really plays to the sweet, caramel-esque notes of the butterscotch.
