Taster’s Review:

After thanksgiving dinner, after the turkey and all the trimmings … you want dessert, right?  And what’s more traditional than a slice of pumpkin pie?  But … after eating the turkey and all the trimmings, do you really want to consume all the calories in that slice of pumpkin pie?

Pumpkin Pie Matcha to the rescue!

This Matcha tastes very much like a slice of rich, creamy pumpkin pie that’s been liquified and added to a bowl of Matcha!  YUM!  I taste the sweet yet savory pumpkin goodness, I taste the spices, I even taste a hint of the buttery crust!  This Matcha gives you the goodness of that delicious thanksgiving pumpkin pie … and you don’t have to wait until thanksgiving rolls around to enjoy it.

Because Red Leaf Tea lets you customize each batch of Matcha, you get to control just what goes in to your Matcha.  Want a stronger pumpkin pie flavor?  Choose the robust or “There’s Matcha In There?!” level of flavoring.  Want more green tea taste with just a hint of flavor?  Choose the delicate level of flavoring.  Want an ultra high quality Matcha as the base?  Choose Royal or Imperial Matcha!  You can even choose black tea Matcha or White Tea Matcha or the naturally caffeine free Rooibos Matcha!  I love the choices … I love being able to customize my Matcha!

For this batch of Matcha, I chose the distinctive level of flavoring with the classic grade of green tea Matcha, and it is a delightful balance between smooth, creamy green tea and rich, decadent pumpkin pie.

I find that with this particular flavor, it’s best served as a latte.  To make my Matcha latte, I first measured the Matcha into my sieve and then sifted the Matcha into my chawan.  Then I added some hot water and whisked it until it was all mixed through, and then I added some warmed milk … I used about the same amount of warm milk to hot water – I never measure my liquids I just kind of eyeball it.  This ratio of 1:1 hot water to warmed milk produces a really satisfying bowl of Matcha!  The pumpkin pie flavors really seem to come forth with the addition of the milk.

Another great Matcha from Red Leaf Tea!

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
