Taster’s Review:

I have a serious sweet tooth.  But I also know that I shouldn’t eat too many sweets, because it isn’t good for me, my teeth, or my waistline.  But those sweet treats are so hard to resist!  If you’ve a sweet tooth like me, here’s what I recommend to help keep those craving at bay:  stock up on flavored Matcha like this English Toffee Matcha.  It really curbs the craving for something sweet and chocolate-y because it TASTES like a liquified English Toffee bar, but, it doesn’t have all the fat and calories of the candy bar.

Seriously!  All that’s missing is the crunch of the toffee bar!

I prepared this Matcha the way I would normally, using water, but instead of adding all the water I would for my serving, I held off on about 1 – 2 teaspoons of water and instead added about that much of half & half (that’s all I have in the fridge right now!) and the result is a latte-ish bowl of Matcha that is sweet and delicious and very dessert-like!

I taste the buttery rich, caramel-y toffee, with nutty notes and hints of chocolate.  This, together with a bit of sweet Matcha flavor – and you’ve got something truly YUM that is also good for you!  How do you go wrong with that?

The only thing that I can find to complain about with this Matcha is that it disappeared too quickly from my bowl.

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
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!
