I loved the classic grade of traditional green Matcha flavored with the Cheesecake flavoring from Red Leaf Tea (see my review of it here) … so, I was a little hesitant to order the black tea version of this flavor. I mean, I was a little worried that maybe this wouldn’t be a win and that could possibly ruin the cheesecake matcha experience for me.
But, I”m really glad I decided to try this Cheesecake Flavored Black Tea Matcha from Red Leaf Tea … because, you know what? I like this even BETTER than the green tea variety! The black tea is the perfect companion for the sweet, creamy, luscious cheesecake flavors!
Just like the green tea version – this is sweet and creamy tasting – but there is just … something about the black tea base allows the tangy cream cheese notes to come out even better. This tastes MORE like real cheesecake in liquid form to me than the green tea variety. I’m getting a more focused “cheesecake” flavor with the black tea base, and I even taste more of the buttery, graham cracker-like crust notes with this blend … perhaps it’s the rich, sweet tones of the black tea that helps bring these flavors forward.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, I still have a lot of love for the classic green tea base for the cheesecake flavoring. Both are absolutely delightful. And if you liked the cheesecake green tea Matcha from Red Leaf Tea … you’ve got to try the black tea version … you’ll LOVE it. It’s so good!
Just … don’t drink it before bedtime, or you’ll find it difficult to sleep … because this really ENERGIZES!
