By know you may have noticed I’m a fan of Red Leaf Tea! They are a great company with a wonderful selection. I especially enjoy their newer matcha additions! They have many matcha’s that other companies have NEVER thought of doing – or even attempting! I like that! I LOVE when tea companies think outside the box! Another thing I really like about Red Leaf Tea is their product descriptions! They really know how to educate their customers! I really enjoyed learning about Gymnema Sylevestre!
As far as my opinions and findings while sampling this matcha of theirs…I found it to be a very nice, strong , rich, – and HEALTHY – matcha! Not to mention great quality tasting matcha! It leaves a leafy green meets veggie aftertaste but it’s darn good! If you are a matcha fan – this is one you don’t want to pass up!
