Product Review:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  And what better way to ring in the new year than with a bowl of Matcha?  It will give you a power-packed punch of energy to get going on those new years resolutions!

This is an very good ceremonial grade Matcha from Red Leaf Tea. The color is a bit darker than some Matcha, it whisks up to a deep jade color.  It is thick and rich, and it has a remarkable buttery note to it that I seldom notice in Matcha.  It has some rich, chocolate-like background notes, and very little vegetative taste which I find uncommon for a Matcha as well, as the vegetal taste is usually what I notice first.  Instead, I am tasting more earthiness than vegetative taste, and a well balanced bitter-sweet flavor.

It has a slightly chalky note to it which was particularly noticeable within the first two or three sips, but, each sip after that was quite smooth and very enjoyable.  No sediment at the bottom of the bowl, which was nice to see.

Overall, a tasty Matcha.  I think that this would be a good choice for someone who is looking for a less vegetative Matcha.  This one has some really distinctive flavors that are quite interesting and enjoyable.

  1. Thanks for the review, I’ve been wondering what Red Leaf’s matcha tastes like. Darker color usually isn’t a good sign, nor is bitterness, but the flavors sound intriguing ….

  2. Hi Eric:

    Thanks for reading!

    It’s not really an off-putting *bitterness* that I taste from this tea but more of a bittersweet flavor, which is something that I pick up with every matcha that I’ve tasted thus far.
